Washington, Mo. Hospital Seeking Free Publicity?


Mercy Invites All Area Physicians to Work Together for the "Good of the Community"

A letter was sent from Mercy officials to all Patients First physicians inviting them to contact Mercy in hopes of creating a new beginning around a common goal of good health care for Washington and surrounding communities.
It’s no secret that the two are each other’s main competition; however, in a letter released from the Mercy organization August 10th, this latest invitation seems to be a more of a peace offering.
Patients First Physicians were invited to contact St. John’s Mercy President Terri McLain, Mercy CEO Lynn Britton, Chief Operating Officer Mike McCurry or Mercy Chief of Staff Tom Riechers to see how they fit in the dialogue. Mercy recently announced its plans for growth in Franklin County, including 236 million dollars in new facilities and services over the next 10 years.
Mercy officials will be on KLPW “The Morning Show” with Diane Jones tomorrow morning at nine-twenty to discuss this in further detail. A copy of the letter sent to all Patients First Health Care physicians is posted under this story.

Dear Dr.
On the night of June 28, Mercy held our second annual community roundtable. Our first roundtable event was in the spring of 2010 and began a yearlong master planning process for the ministry in the Franklin County region. This year, almost 200 community members met in Union to review the resulting plan and to give further input to how we can set the future of health for the people of the Washington area.
At this meeting, each of the five of us stood before leaders of our community and committed to invest in a system of care that will be a model for good health – the personal health of friends and families, and the economic health of the community we share.
Since that meeting, we have processed the notes and comments of the participating community members, and once again we see a common theme surface. There is a strong, prevailing desire that Mercy and the physicians of Patients First work together for the common good of the community.
That is why we are writing to you today. We are very interested in talking with you about a future together. We have reached out to your board; now we are reaching out directly to you with the intention of creating a new beginning, and discussing what it could mean to you personally and professionally to align around a common goal of good health for the Franklin County area.
We have also committed to keep community leaders involved and informed as we execute our master plan. Their ongoing feedback is essential and we will be faithful to their active partnership as we move forward. For that reason, we will also be sharing with them that we have reached out to you and invited you to the table.
We firmly believe that ‘community’ is a precious resource, and by working together, we can preserve it for the future. On the following page, you will find a number of ways to contact us, including our personal phone numbers. Please give us a call if you would like to discuss any aspect of our community’s health and how we might work together for the good of the community. We look forward to moving ahead.
