10/2/2018: With the withdrawal of two potential partners, DCHS faces tremendous financial and organizational challenges.
The DCHS Board of Trustees has announced a “restructuring”.
I pray that it will solve most of the problems that the hospital faces, but there is no guarantee that this move will prevent bankruptcy. The "restructuring" will cost DCHS a lot of money. I hope it is worth it.
The Administration and Board must commit to following ALL of the recommendations of legal counsel, Venable, LLC. If the current Board and CEO are unwilling or unable to make the tough choices necessary for survival, a fresh start with a new Board and Interim CEO will be necessary for our hospital to move forward.
My full care and concern is with the hospital employees, retirees and our community. I call on all area residents to support the employees and retirees of DCHS by using the services the hospital provides whenever it is appropriate to do so.
We are all in this together. We need a hospital in our community!
