The CHI St. Alexius Health Board of Directors met today and issued this statement following its meeting:
“We have created a nine-person working subcommittee that will be comprised of members of the Board of Directors, members of the Medical Executive Committee and CHI administration to engage in dialogue to work through the issues before us and determine next steps. We fully support the leadership of CHI St. Alexius Health as it continues to provide quality care and a viable health care facility for the future.
“We acknowledge that some members of the Medical Executive Committee resigned from the committee earlier this week. We respect their decision and thank them for their service. Importantly, we want the community to know that these physicians continue to treat patients at CHI St. Alexius Health. The Medical Executive Committee continues to function with the prior members who did not resign. The remaining MEC members will identify additional physicians to serve as department chairs and section chiefs to replace those physicians who have resigned.
“We know that transitions present challenges but working together we will continue our work for a strong future as we meet the needs of our patients and the community in a rapidly changing environment while our hard working, caring and dedicated staff and employees continue to provide quality care to our patients.”
