Discussions with Dan

As you have seen in the local news recently, CAMC will be reducing 300 full-time non-clinical positions by the end of the year. As we have been communicating to you, Thomas Health has been facing similar issues that CAMC outlined yesterday. Over the past two years, we have been managing out services as fiscally sounds as possible, given the climate of the economics of our state and the payor mix that has negatively shifted. Over a year ago, we consolidated our orthopedics departments and we transitioned the Emergency Room at Saint Francis to an urgent care. Most recently, we have started educating our patients who present in the Thomas Emergency Room about the necessity of a co-pay. These are tough times and we have to remain diligent in managing our costs without compromising the amazing care that we deliver to our patients. Thank you, Dan Lauffer, President & CEO Thomas Health
