BELMONT Financial stability continues to be a challenge for JonesMemorial,Eva Benedict told county legislators this week, but things are slowly improving. The Jones Memorial CEO reiterated to legislators that, as of Jan. 1, Jones Memorial was officially affiliated with the University of Rochester Medical Center. She said financial stability is a challenge at a small, rural hospital and has been for years, but added that things are improving a little. Financial stability is another thing weve been working with the university on. Through our affiliation, weve already seen some gains in bargaining power and negotiating power with vendors and payers,Benedict said at Mondays Board of Legislators meeting. Their (the universitys) size and scale gets us much better pricing with some of our contracts and weve already, very early on, just six weeks into this affiliation, made some real gains there. Standing before county lawmakers, Benedict did not mention a need to look at cutbacks. We all want Jones to be here for many generations to come as a presence here in Allegany County. Weve seen the challenges some of our neighbors have had and we dont want our organization going down that road, she said. One thing that hasnt come to fruition as quickly as Benedict hoped was the starting of a walk-in clinic after hours and on weekends. The budgeted annual cost for a clinic are around $230,000 including the medical providers salary, Benedict said. Were a little closer to a walk-in clinic at the hospital. I know thats going to come up, so Ill just get it out on the table,she said. When Iwas here (at the Board of Legislators) awhile ago, we talked about it. Iwas hoping within a few months to have that up and going. Benedict said a walk-in clinic is for a patient seeking care for an acute issue after his or her primary care office is closed or he or she is unable to get an appointment at a good time. As for the clinic hours, she said, We are tentatively targeting 2 to 7 p.m. at least six days a week. The walk in clinic is not intended to replace a primary care provider. Recruiting for a clinic that is after-hours and weekends, as you can imagine, is challenging when the folks who staff that can have their pick of jobs,Benedict said. Theres also some regulatory issues around oversight of the clinic and payments and credentialing of providers that we have had. Its taken a lot longer than we wished or we anticipated, but we are getting a little closer. Page 2 of 2 - A walk-in clinic staff member also needs to be qualified to care for patients of all ages,she said. We are initially staffing the clinic with providers already working in the hospital and will hire additional staff if volume are at a level requiring dedicated staff to that function only. We have data to support the need for the clinic in our immediate area more than 2,500 visits annually leave our area to seek care at Urgent Care centers in neighboring communities. We want our community to receive care locally whenever possible,she said. The United Way was generous enough to provide us with some funding to buy equipment for that (clinic), so were hoping that youll see something soon. Its a work in progress. We dont have excess revenue just to go out and fund it for a huge loss,she said. The funds will purchase exam equipment for ears and eyes, exam tables, scales for adults and children, vital signs machine, etc. Establishment of the clinic is dependent on so many variables but if all the stars align we would love to open the clinic by mid-year,Jones Memorials CEOsaid. Benedict also touched on the regional partnership with facilities such as Noyes Health in Dansville, St. James Mercy in Hornell and Wyoming Community Hospital in Warsaw. Jones can work with these facilities on efficiency and shared services, for example, she said. The Jones CEOalso said construction began a couple of months ago on the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center, which is being built behind Noyes Health. An addition will be built to house a 4,500-square-foot radiation oncology clinic at Noyes Health. As part of that, a linear accelerator will be installed to assist with radiation oncology. There will be a 2,300-square-foot oncology clinic in new and renovated space on the first floor at Noyes, according to URMC and an oncology center will be established at JonesMemorial for easier access for local patients. They already have some infusion therapy at Dansville that is run by the university as well as oncology clinics there. Our community will be able to receive services that mirror the services at the university, in Dansville,Benedict said. Benedict reiterated that it will be less intimidating for people to not have to travel to Rochester for these services.
