Little River Healthcare has reached an agreement to provide administrative and management services for Memorial Hospital of Texas County (MHTC). The MHTC District Board of Directors announced the agreement at a publically conducted board meeting on Monday, June 27.
“We are immensely excited to grow our branches into the Guymon community,” said Jeff Madison, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Partner of Little River Healthcare. “We plan to continue MHTC’s history as a medical care center of excellence. The people of Guymon and Texas County deserve it.”
The MHTC Board of Directors sought a group to oversee the hospital’s administrative duties, such as physician relations, marketing, general management, billing and human resources. The board selected Little River because of its stellar track record of professional, quality patient care, in addition to its history of reversing financial instability in Texas rural hospitals.
“We are awestruck by the Guymon community’s passion for its hospital’s future,” Madison said. “We share in that passion and see a glowing future ahead at MHTC.”
Little River’s first order of business is to begin exploring MHTC’s processes inside and out, seeking opportunities for improvement throughout the hospital. No major changes will occur at MHTC immediately.
“Our goal is to re-create the accomplishments at MHTC that we’ve performed at other rural hospitals in Texas. But it will take time,” Madison said. “We are excited to be working with such a knowledgeable, focused Board of Directors in Guymon.”
