The Strategic Plan of Prevost Memorial Hospital is to continue to meet the health care needs of our community to the best of the abilities of the available human resources, the general facility, and the equipment. In order to achieve this, we must remain in a financially stable condition, we must strive to obtain additional physicians for our area; we must maintain qualified hospital staff; and we must secure alternatives to obtain non-patient generated revenues for our facility.
Prevost Memorial Hospital is aggressively recruiting physicians for our staff through personal interviews by the Medical Staff and hospital administration. The hospital continues to offer twenty-four emergency room coverage and out-patient services through the hospital staff and contractual services, with views to expand or add to these services as deemed desirable for the betterment of the community and the hospital.
Through revenues generated from a service district sales-and-use tax, wise investments, and reimbursement for services rendered, the hospital should remain financially sound.
We will study and initiate programs and services that are needed by the residents of our community and which are appropriate for our facility, our medical staff, and our hospital staff. Areas under consideration are:
- Expanded Swing Bed Facility Services - Expand departments in need of space (i.e. Emergency Department and Radiology Department) - Expand organ ultrasound services - Expand radiology coverage - Secure grants available to rural and/or Critical Access Hospitals.
The strategic plan will be reviewed annually and revised as needed.
