Bill Barney motioned to accept the May 8, 2006 regular meeting minutes as presented. Seconded by Mary Lynn Worl and carried unanimously.
Kris Roork – Kris Roork, PA presented a clarification of rumors regarding her resignation at the end of February. She is not retired but rather resigned with cause. There has been an on going tone of disrespect, has asked for the past four years for a contract without success. She would like to work in the Pinedale clinic and is willing to work at the Marbleton clinic without call. She is willing to and knows she can work with Dr. Boyle, but not under her supervision. Based on her 30-plus years as a medical professional, she advised a credentialed medical administrator is vital to the construction and continued administration of the clinics.
Healthy Sublette – Mary Lynn Worl presented a county-wide wellness program, requesting a budget of $9,500. This will mainly be ran by volunteers through a steering and advisory committee and may be integrated with the health fairs, clinics and other organizations. The focus area will be nutrition and weight control for the first year. The amount will be added to the budget.
Update – Jauna McGinnis reported that all locum contracts have been contacted. A file of cv’s has been sent to Dr. Boyle. There has been no movement on Dr. Larson whose family situation won’t allow him to come to Sublette County. Chairman Jensen suggested mobilizing a search committee. It was decided it would not be beneficial in our current situation. Bill Barney suggested the finalization of the draft that establishes guidelines and requirements for specialties not provided and for outside physicians involved in call in the ER of our clinics.
Merritt Hawkins – Mary Lynn Worl motioned to sign the agreement with Merritt Hawkins for physician recruitment. Seconded by Bill Barney and carried unanimously.
Other – Andy McGinnis reported on two bids received for the installation of a mop sink in the Marbleton Clinic. Bill Barney motioned to Bridger Mechanical to do the job. Seconded by Mary Lynn Worl and carried unanimously. Jauna McGinnis requested the ability to obtain a bid for sound-deadening measures in the Marbleton Clinic. Permission was granted Chairman Jensen inquired about ground maintenance.
Progress – Jauna McGinnis reported that Randy Johnson spent last week in the Pinedale clinic meeting with staff, familiarizing with the operation and continuing the transition process. Jauna McGinnis requested the administrative personnel to have the same ability to set up the Pinedale clinic as they did with the Marbleton clinic. Bill Barney motioned to authorizethe administrative staff to set-up business like in Marbleton. Seconded by Mary Lynn Worl and carried unanimously.
EHR Equipment – Tabled.
Bid Items – Jauna McGinnis requested to put an ER stretcher out for bid. Bill Barney motioned to put the ER stretcher out forbid. Seconded by Mary Lynn Worl and carried unanimously. Other items will be brought to the Board at a later date.
Update – Andy McGinnis reported Big Piney will try to fill one person for the two crew and add one crew for the nights. The council sees the need and has given Pinedale the ability to staff two crews 24-7 and will take this to the group for review. Jauna McGinnis reminded the board that the volume of runs will not carry the salary requirements for new additional crew members. An additional $304 per run is needed now to cover current payroll. Andy McGinnis stated there is not enough volunteer coverage and the salaried personnel are covering the extra time. The board discussed if this would be a temporary need through the summer and the possibility of transferring the crew over to Sand Draw. Ways to increase the volunteer force were discussed. A letter from Dr. Schmitz was submitted requesting the ability to send EMTs to a national conference. The council is to bring a proposed training policy to the board. First Responder ID badges have become mandatory. The weapons in mass destruction course is also required. Andy McGinnis requested to send two peopleto Laramie for a train-the-trainer course. It would require these individuals to train around the state also. Approval was received for one EMT from each division to attend. New employee Dave Klein was introduced.
IT Update – Jauna McGinnis reported the data center is in progress. EHR will be on hold till the following month. There is an alcove in the basement of the Pinedale clinic which is suited for the data center.
Rocky Mountain Communications System – There are too many ramifications. Money cannot compensate for ruining our communications. Bill Barney motioned to not move forward with this request. Seconded by Mary Lynn Worl and carried unanimously.
Audit Engagement Letter – Mary Lynn Worl motioned to engage Leo Riley to perform the audit and sign the audit engagement letter. Seconded by Bill Barney and carried unanimously.
Rental Renewal – Bill Barney motioned to accept the rental agreement. Seconded by Mary Lynn Worl and carried unanimously.
Clinic Administrator – It was decided it was time to move ahead with the clinic administrator position. Advertising should be done at all previous places and any new ones that can be found. Candidate should have a master’s in health administration with experience preferable. Salary will be commensurate with experience. The board discussed using key people to help with the hiring process (i.e., Roy Miller, MD, Judy Anderson).
Other – Chairman Jensen discussed how to structure the Pinedale clinic. A list of current personnel and future positions at both clinics was discussed. The administrator position will be over both clinics and probably report to the chairman. It will be necessary to review the director and administrator job descriptions. Bill Barney suggested steps be taken incrementally. It was noted the public is expecting changes but probably realize we can’t make them immediately. The focus will be on staffing physicians. Bill Barney motioned to standardize the charges. Seconded by Mary Lynn Worl and carried unanimously. The board discussed building one clinic at a time.
Budget – Jauna McGinnis was instructed to solicit bye-mail for available times for a budget workshop.
The check registers were reviewed for accountability of checks. No discrepancies were noted. Bill Barney motioned to pay the bills as presented. Seconded by Mary Lynn Worl and carried unanimously authorizing vouchers for payroll and vendors numbered 6895 through 6954, DD053106-28,EFT053106-2 totaling $74,694.80.
