On Tuesday, July 22, four surveyors from The Joint Commission arrived, unannounced, at Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services (RMCHCS) to conduct a rigorous survey of the organization. The surveyors were on site for four days and were impressed by the patient care delivered at RMCHCS. They were complimentary of the dedication of RMCHCS staff, providers and leadership and of the organization’s continuous focus on patient safety and good, quality care.

All healthcare facilities must be accredited and/or granted “deemed status” by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The Joint Commission is one of the agencies that provides accreditation and deem status. Because of the successful survey, RMCHCS was once again granted accreditation for another 36 months.

To ensure that residents of Gallup and McKinley County have local access to the healthcare services they deserve, the RMCHCS Board of Trustees evaluated four organizations (Community Hospital Corporation, Lovelace Health System, UNM Health System and Healthcare Integrity) to determine which one could best assist RMCHCS in achieving this goal.

The Board looked for an organization that could provide expertise in various areas, be a good fit for our community and provide capital to invest in RMCHCS in order to improve healthcare in the region.

With this in mind, the Board voted to sign a letter of intent (LOI) to sell the assets of RMCHCS to Healthcare Integrity, LLC, owned and co-founded by David Conejo and Pablo Chapa. Mr. Conejo served as CEO for RMCHCS from 1983–1994 and is currently CEO of Red River Regional Hospital in Bonham, Texas. Pablo Chapa has served as Director of Business Development at Wellness Environments in Atlanta, Georgia.

Upon signature of the LOI, RMCHCS and Healthcare Integrity will enter into a 120-day review period, during which time Healthcare Integrity will bring in NewLight Healthcare, from Austin, Texas to assist in conducting an operational evaluation.

During this review period, our dedicated and caring providers, nurses and professional clinical staff will continue to give great care to our patients. We will continue to recruit more providers and conduct our day–to-day business without interruption. We will also keep you informed of developments as they happen.

Mind Your Health — the theme for May’s Mental Health Month — calls attention to the importance of mental health to overall health and wellness.

We all know about the importance of taking care of our physical health — eating right, getting enough sleep and exercising. But good health involves not only caring for our body, but also our mind. People need to care for their mental health so they can respond to the stress of daily life and the challenges it presents.

Research shows that stress is closely linked to high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity. It also shows that people who feel depressed or chronically stressed may have a greater risk of physical illness.

There are many healthy choices and steps that individuals can adopt to promote and strengthen mental health — and overall health and well-being. Building social support, making healthy food choices and stress management are important steps that promote good mental health. For more information on steps to improving one’s mental health, visit www.mentalhealthamerica.net/may.

RMCHCS Patient Care Uninterrupted By Disruption in Communication Services

RMCHCS staff pulled together to make sure patients were safe and well-cared for despite a major disruption in communication services on Saturday, April 12. An optic fiber cable located between Albuquerque and Gallup was cut, shutting down area internet and cell phone service for about ten hours. As soon as RMCHCS received word of this event, employees responded to make sure patient care would not be compromised as the hospital depends on cell phone and intranet services for its outside communications.

Communication within the organization was well-coordinated and everyone was informed of the situation. The emergency department contacted the police department which had radio contact with emergency transport services. Satellite phones were also available for use.

With no cell phone service and with fewer people using land lines, contacting physicians, patient care staff and technicians who were on call could have become an issue. However, employees took the initiative and did what was needed.

Members of the on-call surgical team arrived at the hospital and were available in the event an emergency surgery was needed. The on-call obstetrician spent the day at the hospital in case there was a delivery. The radiology technician on duty contacted the department director as well as the MRI technician by going to their homes to let them know of the situation and to ask the MRI technician to come in to perform a procedure. Had the situation escalated further, RMCHCS’ emergency plan would have been initiated. Fortunately, the cable was repaired and services were restored by 6:30pm.

The RMCHCS Emergency Room Department beats national average for patients with chest pains.

It takes an average of 19 minutes from the time a patient with chest pains comes to RMCHCS’ emergency department to the time the patient receives needed medication (thrombolytics). This is 11 minutes faster than the national goal of 30 minutes.

The quicker the medication is administered to a patient, the better the chance of saving the heart muscle. There are many steps that need to take place before the medication can be ordered and administered and to complete all this in 19 minutes takes a great deal of teamwork and coordination between staff and the physicians.

This is the kind of teamwork you see at RMCHCS.

RMCHCS has refinanced a loan from Pinnacle Bank, bringing the organization’s total loan to $3 million. The money is needed to help support operations while RMCHCS waits to receive its first Safety Net Care Pool (SNCP) payment for 2014.Sole Community Provider (SCP) payments as we knew it ended on December 31, 2013 and SCNP payments under the new funding formula (Senate Bill 268) are not scheduled to begin until July 1, 2014. New Mexico’s 29 sole community provider hospitals were told they would receive payments under the old funding formula during January to June, 2014. However, as of yet no hospitals have received any funding. The delay in payments is causing a shortage of needed cash for many of the hospitals, including RMCHCS.This scenario is similar to what happened in 2013 when SCP funds were held up during the first six months of the year. At that time RMCHCS received a loan of $2.5 million from Pinnacle Bank, using mill levy taxes as collateral. RMCHCS has paid back $1 million of that loan.

An additional reason for needing the new loan has to do with delays in Medicaid reimbursements through Centennial Care, New Mexico’s redesigned Medicaid program. Approximately 32% of RMCHCS patients have Medicaid insurance. Currently RMCHCS estimates it has $900,000 in unpaid Medicaid reimbursements from claims that are over 30 days old.

All hospitals in New Mexico are experiencing delays in Medicaid reimbursements as the transition from New Mexico’s old Medicaid Salud program to the new Centennial Care program has not been a smooth process. New Mexico changed its Medicaid eligibility guidelines, thereby increasing the number of eligible participants. This has resulted in a backlog in processing new accounts.

In addition, the Centennial Care and the Managed Care Organizations’ (MCO) data systems are not talking to each other. Managed Care Organizations (MCO) are the four insurance companies (Blue Cross Blue Shield NM, Molina Health Care, Presbyterian Health Plan and United Health Care) that have contracted with New Mexico’s Human Services Department to pay for Medicaid patient care.

Patients who are newly qualified and enrolled through Centennial Care are being denied by the MCOs because the data system says they are not qualified for Medicaid. As a result, when hospitals send reimbursement claims for Medicaid patients to the MCOs, the claims are being denied. The County Medicaid Income Support Division (ISD) is working on this issue. Officials have stated that it may not be resolved until late 2014.

This past January, RMCHCS made the financial decision to close down its east campus and discontinue the inpatient addictions recovery program by the end of February. At the same time, a decision was made to move outpatient Behavioral Health Services to RMCHCS’ main campus.

Behavioral Health counselors—Emily Kee, LISW; Jeremy Lindsey, LMFT; Yvonne Mandagaran, LPCC and Gretchen Woods, CNS—will continue seeing patients at their offices located in the Behavioral Health Services building on RMCHCS’ east campus, until the end of March. At that time, their offices will be moved to the ground floor of the old dialysis building located on RMCHCS’ main campus. Appointments can be made by calling 726.6910 and patients will be notified as to the exact date of when they will need to come to RMCHCS main campus for their appointments.
