Kim Bordenkircher, Chief Executive Officer, presented the hospital monthly
report to the Board of Directors:
• Henry County Hospital received the Platinum Fit-Friendly Award!
This is an increase from the Gold Fit-Friendly award that we have received
in the past. In order for a worksite to qualify for a Platinum award,
it would have to fulfill the following requirements:
1. Complete and qualify all the criteria required for a Gold recognition
2. Achieve a >10% positive outcome on any one of the pre-specified criteria
among the three categories listed below; there are a total of 12 specific
criteria and at least one of them needs to show a positive impact with
• Behavior change
• Cost Savings
• Return on Investment.
• Henry County Hospital is now part of The University of Toledo Medical
Center Stroke Network. The Stroke Network is a collaborative link of hospitals
connected to a central hub hospital, UTMC, with expertise in all aspects
of stroke management. Using high-quality teleconferencing equipment, members
of the UTMC Stroke Team are able to work in tandem with Henry County Hospital's
Emergency Care Services physicians. Using this network, UTMC's Stroke
Team can perform a virtual examination on a stroke patient, view radiological
studies, talk with family members, and develop a state-of-the-art treatment
plan. This network allows stroke patients to receive some of the best
care in the region when time is of the essence without having to be transferred
to the University of Toledo Medical Center. The patient can be assessed
quickly if rapid and direct intervention is required.
• The hospital set a goal of 100 people to participate in the Community
Health Screenings. Out of the 63 screens completed, there were 47 with
at least one abnormal result and 16 with all normal results. There was
a wide age range as well. This community health-screening program takes
the place of screenings completed at the senior center.
• Anne Goon and Kim Bordenkircher meet with Rep Wachtmann at his request
regarding infant mortality rate in Henry County.
The two primary needs that were identified are:
o Improved Medicaid reimbursement for prenatal and delivery care
o Local need for safe sleeping arrangements for local infants- Our Help
Me Grow staff reports that about 50% of the clients seen through the Home
Visiting program do not have cribs for their children.
• The hospital has been asked to participate in the JIFF (Jump into
Food & Fitness) Program again this year to provide the meals. The
JIFF program staff received rave reviews from the kids last year about
the food we provided!
What is the JIFF Program?
The JIFF Program provides meals and activities for the children of Napoleon
(throughout the summer months) as a way to ensure they are receiving at
least 1 healthy meal/day as well as remaining active. The children receive
a healthy meal, enjoy making crafts and have the opportunity to participate
in an organized activity such as kickball, scavenger hunts etc. Everyone
is invited (regardless of age or income) however only children under 18
can receive a meal.
The program is free for the children to attend (thanks to many sponsors)
and has been a great success in the past.
• The program will run from June 3rd and run through August 9th. Angel
Robinson and Nutrition Services are currently working on the menus for
program. Planning the menus for the program requires several challenges
such as incorporating our café menu as close to the JIFF menu as
possible while meeting the guidelines set forth by the government for
the program (while also making sure the food is "kid friendly").
Mary Clapp, Controller presented the financial statements for March 2013.
There were 60 admissions and 13 births through March. Days in accounts
receivable increased by 1 to 46.
