December 29, 2014 Gallup, New Mexico—Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services (RMCHCS) has received a grant of $40,000 from Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) for its Healthy Parenting, Healthy Kids Program.
RMCHCS began its Healthy Parenting, Healthy Kids program nearly three years ago with a grant from BCBSNM and has now received a renewal grant. Daisy Arsenault, RD, LD, is the program coordinator.
RMCHCS’ grant is part of BCBSNM’s Healthy Kids, Healthy Families® initiative, BCBSNM’s signature program. The initiative focuses on engaging children and their families in understanding the importance of nutritious foods, raising the level of physical activity, improving immunizations rate, better managing chronic conditions and promoting safe environments.

“We’re proud to give our support to RMCHCS as a Healthy Kids, Healthy Families partner, said Janice Torrez, Vice President of External Affairs for BCBSNM.” Through its work, we expect to see measurable improvement in children’s health such as a decrease in weight, an increase in healthy eating choices and an increase in physical activity.”

RMCHCS Healthy Parenting, Healthy Kids Program:
Healthy Parenting, Healthy Kids is for families whose children are at risk for developing childhood obesity and diabetes. The program’s goal is to help prevent childhood obesity among children ages 3 – 17 by integrating nutrition, physical activity, parenting skills and health education in family focused individual and group meetings. A secondary goal is to help improve the health and well-being of the entire family, including parents. Children are referred to the program by RMCHCS College Clinic’s pediatricians, who work closely with Arsenault in assessing the level of nutrition education and physical activity needed for each individual child.
“I have seen entire families change their overall lifestyle as a result of our program,” commented Arsenault. “These families are eating more meals at home and are exercising together. They are also buying and consuming less soda.”

September 5, 2014, Gallup, New Mexico—Employees at Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services (RMCHCS) had several opportunities to hear from their Chief Executive Officer, David Conejo, and Chief Operating Officer, William Kiefer, BSN, MBA on plans to help stabilize the organization. The two leaders took over on Friday, August 29, following the RMCHCS Board of Trustees’ decision to enter into a management services agreement with NewLight Healthcare, LLC and to give Healthcare Integrity, LLC an option to purchase and right of first refusal.

NewLight Healthcare, LLC of Austin, Texas is a hospital management and consulting company with 13 hospitals under management and another seven hospitals in their network. Healthcare Integrity of Bonham, Texas is owned and co-founded by David Conejo and Pablo Chapa. The Board made this decision in order to correct RMCHCS’ serious financial situation. “This decision allows RMCHCS to enter into a new phase,” said RMCHCS Board Chair, Pricilla Smith. “We are pleased to bring in Mr. Conejo’s and Mr. Keifer’s talents and new resources to help stabilize the organization and improve our services.”

Conejo and Kiefer met with employees to inform them of changes and top priorities for the coming months and to reassure them about their jobs. “We need to move quickly and aggressively to make things right and improve our services, otherwise we will get further behind,” stated Conejo. Kiefer will be overseeing the day-to-day operations of the hospital and Conejo, while overseeing the entire organization, will also focus on networking and growing RMCHCS.

One of Conejo’s top priorities is to make sure patients are happy with their care at RMCHCS by effectively addressing concerns. Other priorities include improving relationships in the community, rebuilding volumes and addressing billing and coding issues.

Conejo’s leadership style is that of a servant leader. “We need to get back to our first mission statement of serving God by providing healthcare and wellness for all people while at the same time respecting all other faiths and denominations,” commented Conejo. Conejo and Kiefer will become permanent residents of the community and plan to move their families here by the end of the year.

July 28, 2014, Gallup, New Mexico— 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 survey, which takes place every three years, is a way of evaluating quality and safety in organizations. It is an audit of the actual delivery of critical services and patient care.

“The survey was very successful and validates our commitment to continuously meeting rigorous national standards in patient care. We are very proud of our staff, for their teamwork and for their commitment to patient care. The surveyors saw this and were impressed by the patient care provided here,” commented CEO Barry Mousa.  The Joint Commission surveyors were very complimentary of the dedication of RMCHCS staff members, providers and leadership and of the organization’s continuous focus on patient safety and good quality care.

The Joint Commission’s hospital standards address important functions relating to the care of patients and the management of hospitals. These national standards are developed in consultation with healthcare experts, providers, measurement experts and patients.

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

The New Mexico Medical Society recently held its annual meeting in Albuquerque. The theme of this three-day meeting was “Medicine in Rural New Mexico: Problems and Solutions.” Recruitment and retention of physicians was listed as the number one difficulty for rural hospitals in New Mexico. While the United States loses approximately 1,000 rural physicians per year, only 700 physicians take their place. Ten years ago 22 percent of rural physicians had their own private practice; today only one percent of rural physicians are in private practice. The image of the “country doctor” who was viewed as the backbone of rural communities is no longer true.

As RMCHCS actively recruits for additional providers, we are also nurturing relationships with students who are in the University of New Mexico BA/MD program. This program is designed to encourage students to practice rural medicine, thereby addressing the shortage of providers. For the past four years the RMCHCS Foundation has served as the community coordinator for the BA/MD summer program in Gallup. Foundation board members have gone out of their way to ensure that the students have a positive experience while in Gallup. This month, four students from the program have been shadowing providers; three with RMCHCS providers and one with a private practice provider. It will be a number of years before these students are ready to practice medicine. However, we look forward to seeing some of the BA/MD graduates who have spent time here, return to practice medicine in Gallup.

The signing of the LOI marks the beginning of a 120-day period of due diligence.

The Due Diligence period will be used by Healthcare Integrity to review RMCHCS’ legal and financial obligations as well as its compliance with accreditation standards and regulations such as Joint Commission, Medicare and Medicaid, and state licensing. Healthcare Integrity will also use this time to assess current support for RMCHCS from various groups, including investment banks, local banks, county and state authorities, and local investors.

“This will be a serious challenge, but I look forward to working with Mr. Mousa and the Board to make it a reality,” commented David Conejo of Healthcare Integrity.

Healthcare Integrity of Bonham, Texas is owned and co-founded by David Conejo and Pablo Chapa. Mr. Conejo has a history of working in this region, having served as CEO for RMCHCS from 1983 – 1994.

“On behalf of the RMCHCS Board of Trustees and as the Board Chair, I thank David Conejo and Healthcare Integrity for their support and interest in the healthcare needs of our community. Because of their efforts, we are one step closer to the provision of exceptional clinical outcomes; patient, employee and physician satisfaction and sound financial performance,” said Priscilla Smith.

RMCHCS received word this week that John C. Harmston, MD has rescinded his acceptance of a contract with RMCHCS as an employed orthopedic physician. Dr. Harmston was scheduled to begin practicing at Red Rock Clinic in early June, thus filling a position that has been open for nearly two years. He cited personal reasons in his letter of May 12, 2014 addressed to Mr. Barry Mousa, CEO.

Dr. Harmston wrote, “Please accept this letter rescinding my acceptance of a contract as a hospital employed orthopedic physician at Rehoboth McKinley. This decision to not proceed forward has been a very difficult, but a thoughtfully considered determination.

As my move to Gallup was drawing ever so near, my wife, daughter and I found ourselves debating frequently the pros and cons of my move to Gallup without them. As you recall, my daughter will be a senior next year in high school here in Hobbs. The three of us, with much contemplation and prayer, have decided that it would be painful for me to be apart from my family during her final year at home, as her plans suggest preference for college on the East Coast. My wife and daughter’s choice was to have our family remain together here in Hobbs, and for me to work locum tenens positions intermittently. This is certainly not my choice of employment, but does allow for me to be more closely involved with my family, especially during my daughter’s last year in high school. We have decided that adjustment of our family life would be arduous if I assumed the position in Gallup. I apologize for the timing, and believe my family must come first.

Please let Jim, Frances, Patty and all of your fine physicians know that I appreciate all of their work involved with preparations and my credentialing. I am so very sorry to have let you, the hospital, and the community down.”

RMCHCS will continue to recruit for an orthopedic physician who will be able to provide this needed service to the community.

April 30, 2014, Gallup, New Mexico—To ensure the continuation of healthcare services in Gallup and McKinley County, the Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services (RMCHCS) Board of Trustees conducted an in-depth evaluation of four organizations (Community Hospital Corporation, Lovelace Health System, UNM Health System and Healthcare Integrity, LLC) to determine which one could assist RMCHCS in achieving this goal. The Board’s selection was based on determining which organization could provide the needed expertise to assist RMCHCS, be a good fit for the community and provide capital to invest in RMCHCS and in the improvement of healthcare in the region.

With this in mind, the RMCHCS Board of Trustees has made a decision to enter into a Letter of Intent (LOI) to sell the assets of RMCHCS to Healthcare Integrity, LLC. Healthcare Integrity of Bonham, Texas is owned and co-founded by David Conejo and Pablo Chapa. Mr. Conejo has a history of working in this region, having served as CEO for RMCHCS from 1983–1994. During his tenure at RMCHCS, he worked to help merge Rehoboth Christian Hospital and McKinley General Hospital and its medical staff, resulting in a healthcare system which included a 71-bed acute care facility, 49-bed alcoholism treatment, 18-bed adolescent drug abuse program, 150-bed detoxification program, three offsite renal dialysis units, three home healthcare agencies, two physician clinics and an outpatient substance abuse program.

Under Mr. Conejo’s leadership, RMCHCS was one of four finalists for the American Hospital Association Foster McGraw Award for Outstanding Hospital in the Nation and the first rural hospital to receive this recognition. Mr. Conejo led the well-known March to Santa Fe, which resulted in State and local legislative reform for alcoholism treatment issues. He was appointed by the Governor to the State of New Mexico Legal Peer Review system and also served as Chairman of the New Mexico Hospital Association.

Mr. Conejo has been operating hospitals since 1976 and is currently CEO of Red River Regional Hospital in Bonham, Texas. His expertise is on new ownerships, mergers and turnaround situations.

Pablo Chapa has served as Director of Business Development at Wellness Environments, Atlanta, GA. He has over 20 years experience in Business Development, Sales, Finance and Marketing and has expertise in financing and refinancing hospitals as well as developing comprehensive marketing plans to develop market segmentation and uncover new opportunities.

Mr. Conejo has indicated that he will bring in NewLight Healthcare in Austin,Texas to assist in evaluating and managing RMCHCS. NewLight Healthcare currently manages a number of hospitals in Texas and Oklahoma and is exploring another facility in New Mexico in addition to RMCHCS.

“This decision is the right step in making sure our community continues to have local access to the healthcare services it deserves.”
