Board of Directors, Mendocino Coast Health Care District — Cargo designado (2016current)
San Diego State University B.A. M.A. , B.A. History with a Minor in Political Science M.A. Educational Administration (1978)

I have lived on the coast for the past 16 years and have developed a deep regard for our community and the importance of being active in supporting critical  institutions such as our hospital. I am married and have two grown children and three grandchildren. My 20 years of professional experience as a Public School Administrator, and my involvement with the Hospital Foundation along with other significant community programs and projects, enables me to bring a broad range of experience in governance, finance, leadership and results to the role of director. This work around the state and locally has provided me with the perspective that it is essential to work with my colleagues, hsopital staff and our entire coastal community to develop and implement sustainable strategies to enhance our safety net of essential healthcare services.

We live in a beautiful and isolated coastal environment and we are used to taking care of ourselves and one another. Our hospital is an essential component for both our econnomic and physical well being. I beleive that it is critical that we work together to ensure that all our citizens continue to have access to a caring and modern high-tech locally based health care system.

Responses to questions from Advocate News

Summary

The top near-term priority for the hospital board

Summary of the most important goals for the hospital over the next few years.

Advocate News Questions

 

What is the most important part of my background to MCDH:

 

My background is in finance with an emphasis on distressed companies. I have extensive experience reading financial statements and analyzing companies' financial situations. I have participated on several boards of companies which have been through bankruptcy, working with other stakeholders to improve the company's performance and valuation. As a result of my experience I believe I can bring a needed sense of urgency and objectivity to the MCDH board.

 

 

What are MCDH's top three priorities over the next few years:

 

1.    Determine profitability by major department and focus on ways to mitigate the largest losses, i.e. OB and others. Include speaking with select rural hospitals in CA that have achieved financial stability to compare practices. Should consider staffing levels, use of electronic records, identifying any high cost/low benefit areas, etc.

2.    Focus on creating an environment to attract/retain quality physicians. Could establish a small task force to examine successful methods of offering new physicians the most rewarding combination of professional environment + incentive compensation.

3.    Determine exact services which are optimal for the community going forward and use as a basis for designing new or retrofitted facility, required by 2030.

 

What is the top near-term priority:

           

Determine necessary additional cash flow each year to achieve financial stability (probably at least $4 million) and identify cash improvement opportunities sufficient to reach the target. Immediately establish small ad hoc committee for each opportunity to expedite necessary research and report back to the board within a specified timeframe for evaluation and action steps. Among others, opportunities to explore should include:

 

      -- Converting from District-owned to private ownership

      -- Alternative methods for offering OB services

      -- Reducing high turnover that results in excessive Registry costs               -- Appropriate levels of employee contributions to health and pension

          plans

 

As a key part. of this effort the hospital needs a standard cash flow statement. This is essential for both the board and the community to have financial transparency.
