District Superintendent Corner

Life Care Centers of America donated their long term care center in Ritzville to the Adams County Public Hospital District #2 on May 1st 2015. The new name is East Adams Care Center (EACC). We welcome the staff that had been employed by Life Care that are now employees of the District. We also welcome to Steve Wuitschick who became the Administrator of EACC.

We are now in compliance with the State Fire Marshall’s office for our electrical citation. We have an extension on our interior sprinkler citation until January 2017. We should have our renovation completed by July 2016 and that will clear the sprinkler citation.

We will reroof our provider call house and the administrative building in June.

Medical Staff Bylaws have been revised and approved.

Dr. Bryant has signed a two year contract that begins May 2015.

We have an agreement with Odessa Memorial Hospital that they will provide an Occupational Therapist (OT) two times a week. We will be utilizing the OT at the EACC and Hospital. We may start utilizing a Physical Therapist from Odessa to add to our compliment of therapy staff for both of our facilities. We hired Debbie Reynolds for speech therapy at EACC.

We are working with the Critical Access Hospital Network (CAHN) on a value based payment model readiness assessment. This is step one in a process that is related to the Affordable Care Act. The payment for the assessment being analyzed will be paid through grants submitted by the CAHN. We have our team assembled and have completed the assessment. The CAHN will analyze the results of the 14 hospitals in the network and will let each facility know where they stand. This process will determine how we proceed. This may be the way Hospitals are reimbursed in the future.


Thank you for your continued support!
