There are 40 days left until the hospital closes. The City has left no stone unturned. The City needs to look at the future of the hospital facility itself also. During the first week of November, a very good meeting was held with Mercy officials from Springfield, St. Louis, and Joplin to discuss the fate of the hospital and the facility. The City received positive feedback from Mercy and was told they would work with the City and any other interested providers. There was also another recent meeting held with a firm that offers health care consultations. There are more meetings scheduled next week and the City is very focused on the next 40 days and continuing health care in this community.

Mercy Home Health and Hospice hosted the Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce weekly coffee on Nov. 29.
Tabitha Stults, community relations with MHHH, spoke to the attendees at the coffee.
Stults said the Memorial Patio in Riverside Park, which was begun October 2017 was finished this month.
The area is in memory of those people served by hospice since 2012, when Mercy began its hospice service to the community.

“She won’t be in Fort Scott,” Stults said. “She is the director of community engagement for all of Integrity, she will be my direct supervisor.”
Between Jan.1 and March when Integrity takes over, the staff will remain as Mercy employees as they go through the merger, Stults, said.
“We will have the same staff and continue to provide the same services,” Davied said.

Mercy Hospital Fort Scott announced Oct. 1 that it would close on Dec. 31, 2018.
The Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas, Pittsburg, will then assume operations for the main clinic and convenient care at the former Mercy Hospital site.
Krista Postai, CEO of Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas answered the following questions from fortscott.biz
What is in concrete at this point?
“Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas will assume operations of the Mercy clinics in Pleasanton and Arma on January 1.
We will also transition the Mound City Clinic, now under the management of Olathe Health System, on January 1.
CHC/SEK will assume operations for Mercy’s Convenient Care and their main clinic in the hospital on February 1.
Hours of operation for all these sites will remain the same.”
Who will be the administration team that will be on site on Jan. 1 at Mercy Fort Scott?
“Administrative offices for CHC/SEK are based in Pittsburg where we originally started.
All of our clinics – and we currently have 11 through southeast Kansas serving 50,000 patients – have a local practice manager on site that oversees daily operations. We have hired one for the Bourbon County Clinics and one for the Linn County clinics.
So “administration” for us is defined as these six people – CEO Krista Postai, Senior Vice President Jason Wesco, CFO Douglas Stuckey, Chief Clinical Officer Linda Bean, VP/Human Resources Megan Fry and General Counsel Daniel Creitz – and they work out of a System Office at 3015 N. Michigan.
We also have management staff including a Director of School Health, Director of Operations, Pharmacy Director, Dental Director, Director of Behavioral Health, IT Director, Billing Director, etc. who provide support for all of our clinics and staff…they are located at various sites throughout the area and travel from clinic to clinic to oversee programs.”
“Amy Budy will be our Practice Manager.”
Which doctors have signed on to stay at this point?
“I’ve attached the picture we took yesterday of the staff at the main clinic in Ft. Scott who we will employ beginning Feb. 1.
This includes the physicians we have hired – Dr. Burke, Dr. Seals, Dr. Self and Dr. Gugnani. We have also hired Dr. Allen from Mound City who will cover both Mound City and Pleasanton clinics. We do not anticipate hiring any additional physicians.”
What services will you provide?
“We will continue to provide the services that have been offered by the clinics in the past.
Convenient Care will change its name to Walk-In Care – the hours and services will be the same.
At the main clinic, the same services will also be offered – primary medical care including obstetrics, lab, x-ray, immunizations, etc.
For most people, the only change they will notice will be the name on the building.
We also plan to continue to offer mammograms and provide space for specialists including the Cancer Center of Kansas.
We will also assume operations of the retail pharmacy next to the hospital clinic.
Once we make the transition, we’ll start looking at the addition of other services including behavioral health, addiction treatment and, eventually, dental care as we offer at many of our other clinics.
In the meantime, anyone needing these services will be referred to the closest clinic and, if needed, transportation provided.”
You said services fees will be income-based?
“All of our services are provided regardless of an individual’s ability to pay. We accept Medicare, Medicaid and all private insurances.
For those with incomes at 200% or below the federal poverty level, services are discounted. For example, a family of four with an annual income of $25,100 or below would pay $15 for a medical visit including lab and x-ray.
Special financial assistance paperwork must be completed annually and documentation of income provided and those with/or without insurance may apply.
For those with insurance, the discount is applied to the amount they owe after insurance pays. Also, for those on Medicare, the deductible is waived per federal requirements. For the financial assistance forms, go to our web page…www.chcsek.org
“Maybe you could strain your stuffing.”
The stuffing recipe was new, a five-star dish, loaded with sausage, bacon and mushrooms. The photo-shopped picture—with precisely placed red peppers and browned bread chunks– was my Thanksgiving experiment for this year, the year when I needed to impress.
I knew what had gone wrong. I had become distracted when the recipe called for 4 cups of water, and since I was halving-again the ingredients, six were necessary. But had I already poured in four…or six? How was I to know? The bread had soaked up all of the water, so there was no way to dump it out and remeasure. I stood by my Dutch oven, staring, waiting for the brain cells to engage. Four cups or six cups, that was the question. Unfortunately, that was also the answer. I added two more cups, rationalizing that moist stuffing is better than dry. It isn’t.
That wasn’t the only mistake. Dave and I were half-way to our son’s family’s house for dinner when I realized I had left my salad’s apple/parsley garnish at home. My lovely apple-lemon-cranberry jello dish would be naked, and since my stuffing had required additional baking time, there was no time to turn around and retrieve it, especially since I needed to run by the grocery store to pick up one of those cheater brown gravy mixes because I had only enough turkey drippings to make gravy for two small children. I would supplement and hope no one noticed. In the end, my lack of jello garnish didn’t matter anyway because I got distracted (are you seeing a pattern here?) and forgot to add my lovely apple-lemon-cranberry dish to the buffet spread until after everyone had eaten.
I had wanted my contribution to be perfect. Our son’s lifelong friend, Will, and his wife, Christina, were visiting from New York. Will owns the #1 restaurant in the WORLD, and Christina owns 15 pastry shops scattered across the country. If you watch the television show Master Chef, you will recognize her as one of the judges. But here I was, straining my gourmet turkey stuffing (aka, mush) while Christina noticed my faux gravy mixes and offered to whisk away. It was she who sweetly suggested the stuffing could serve as a fancy gravy for the potatoes that I surprisingly had not ruined, probably thanks to two sticks of butter, one of cream cheese and overkill on half-and-half, facts I would not share, considering Will and Christina eat only healthy food.
In the end, the young couple raved about the meal, finding nothing but positives in my negatives. Here they were, two perfectionists in the food industry, and they were determined to make me feel unembarrassed. Christina even commented on how many mistakes are made in preparing pastries and that it’s how you correct the problems that makes the difference. I have no doubt their upbeat attitude contributes to their restaurant success.
Ephesians 4:29 addresses the way we talk to others: “No foul language is to come from your mouth, but only what is good for building up someone in need, so that it gives grace to those who hear.” Let’s face it. We are either an encourager or a discourager. I have been both. As a wife, a parent, a teacher, a committee member. And I can honestly tell you, looking for ways to build someone up is far more effective than tearing them down. Christina modeled that for me on Thanksgiving Day. She saw nothing but good in my efforts.
I expect that any day I should get her invitation to appear on Master Chef.
Yes indeed, any day.
