Michael Atkins, CEO
Emergency Hospital Systems
Spring is a time of renewal and growth, so as we enter this season of warmer weather and longer days, EHS will do the same. We are approaching the end of the COVID state emergency declaration that expires in May, so we will continue to focus on renewing our mission to provide high-quality and safe healthcare to our communities. In doing so, we are preparing for the upcoming triennial CIHQ reaccreditation survey for 2023, which allows us to look at our accomplishments in our quality of care and ready to present this information to the surveyors. Additionally, Spring is a time of growth as we continue to look for opportunities to expand our services in the community. We are working with new specialists, such as Dr. James Westmoreland, who provides orthopedic services, and others interested in setting up practices and providing needed services for our community. It is an exciting time for Emergency Hospital Systems, and I appreciate everyone in the organization’s work to ensure that we are living our mission!
