EOMC’s Governing Board has approved a management agreement with NHS. Bob Carter, CEO of EOMC, said that "This agreement is a tremendous move forward for EOMC and the communities it serves. Joining forces with NHS and their system of rural Oklahoma hospitals and clinics will provide EOMC access to be part of a larger system but all still within Oklahoma."
The Strategic Plan going forward will be to expand the services available at EOMC and provide access to a higher level of specialty care within the NHS system. By joining forces with another Oklahoma healthcare system, EOMC will be able to better care for Oklahomans in Oklahoma facilities.
Eastern Oklahoma Medical Center recently welcomed Green Country Emergency Physicians to staff the Emergency Room 24/7 and will soon embark upon a new project to completely remodel the Emergency Department.
Brian Woodliff, CEO and President of Northeastern Health System says "We are excited to work with another rural Oklahoma Healthcare facility. We believe in bringing quality healthcare to rural Oklahoma and this management contract with EOMC will add one more location for that purpose. Part of our mission is to bring specialty services to rural Oklahoma and building up the healthcare systems for the local citizens. We will be working closing with Bob and all the staff at EOMC to bring more necessary healthcare services to the LeFlore County area."
