GUYMON, Okla. (KVII) — New developments in a state health department investigation into Memorial Hospital of Texas County in Guymon, Okla.
On Jan. 18, 2018, Memorial Hospital of Texas County was determined to be out of compliance with medicare and medicaid service regulations. After reviewing reports from surveys conducted in Oct., OSDH found MHTC was not in compliance with emergency services, periodic evaluation and QA review, medical screening exam, and emergency room log.
As a result of these findings, the hospital’s medicare agreement is scheduled to be terminated on April 18. Termination can only be averted by fixing the problems, submitting a plan to fix the problems, and getting a stamp of approval by the health department.
