From the CEO
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
We have accomplished so much in 2013, it's hard to believe that 2014 will be even busier. The upcoming year is proving to be very bright and promising for Eaton Rapids Medical Center. It is anticipated that our newest service, total knee and hip replacement surgeries, will steadily increase. We are finding that our surrounding communities are beginning to take note that the same quality physicians that treat patients in Lansing and Jackson also provide services here.
Pardon our dust. Starting in January 2014, we are creating a new environment below the new Emergency Department for our Laboratory to provide more efficient testing and other services. As the map on the next page shows, this new renovation will also house our Finance and Patient Accounts departments.
Eaton Rapids Medical Center was recently accredited by Det Norske Veritas Healthcare, Inc. (DNV). DNV has deeming authority granted by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) to accredit hospitals. Surveys are conducted annually and procedures are tied to the specific CMS Conditions of Participation. They offer a more collaborative educational experience by providing suggestions and answers to the issues that may arise from state and federal hospital requirements.
- Timothy J. Johnson, President & CEO
