Washington County Memorial Hospital Enters Into New Agreement

(POTOSI, MO) - The Washington County Memorial Hospital in Potosi has joined a new program that brings doctors in to their facility from across the nation.  Michelle Meyer is with Mercy Health that manages Washington County Hospital and says this is a game changer for the hospital.

Meyer says the Hospitalist Program allows doctors on site to be there around the clock.  She says this brings the best solutions to the rural hospital.  The program began back in April and Meyer says it's working very well so far.  Washington County Hospital is managed by Mercy Health out of St. Louis.  Mercy took over managing the medical care at the hospital more than 3 years ago.
