I am excited to announce to the ERMC community that our new strategic plan has officially been approved by the Board. Over the course of the next four years this new plan will help us outline our vision of being the hospital that patients trust, physicians prefer, and staff members love. Creating and refining this plan has been a very involved process for all the committee members, managers, and staff who worked diligently on it, and I am proud of what we have achieved.

This new plan is based on five strategic pillars that provide a balanced structure or  our facility to thrive on. Those pillars include Community, People, Quality, Growth, and Finance; each of which plays an equally important role in allowing us to provide expert care to our patients and an environment in which our staff is invested and inspired every day. Every value underscored in the plan intentionally highlights our mission to Care. Serve. Inspire. First and ...

Progress continues on the construction of the new building as we move into the final weeks of 2017. Exterior doors are being attached, flooring will be installed over the next six weeks, and construction of the walkway between the main hospital and the expansion has begun. There was a snag with the relocation of the MRI Rig that caused the projected January grand opening to be delayed; however, we hope to take possession of the building in February and begin seeing patients in March. We anticipate that this expansion will make an immediate and positive impact on the healthcare landscape in our community, and will support the steady growth that we have experienced this past year and look forward to in the future.    Read more...

An inspector from the College of American Pathologists (CAP) visited ERMC last month to conduct a survey of our laboratory processes. This survey occurs every two years in order to maintain our accreditation. The surveyor reported only ten minor findings out of 1,800+ quality regulations requiring compliance. Laboratory staff now have 30 days in which to respond in writing as to the corrective actions that will be performed prior to receiving approval for reaccreditation. The surveyor was very impressed this year and told me that our lab delivers “the utmost quality of care” for our patients.
  Laboratory manager, Trisha Fitnich, explained that “Laboratory science is all about detail-oriented people with the same personality and drive doing what we ...   Read more...
