CHILLICOTHE, OH (Sept. 13, 2018) – Adena Health System President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
Jeff Graham and Fayette County Memorial Hospital (FCMH) CEO Mike Diener
have signed an affiliation agreement between the two organizations. The
agreement becomes effective October 1.
Over the past year, Adena and FCMH have collaborated to increase medical
services for patients in the region with the addition of specialty services
being performed at FCMH by Adena providers. The partnership began with
Orthopedics in August 2017, adding Pulmonology in November 2017.
“Adena and FCMH, partnering together to expand the availability of
services in Fayette County meets each organization’s shared goal
-- to keep quality care in or near the patient’s home,” said
Adena President and CEO Jeff Graham. “Adena’s partnership
vision includes working with our region’s health care partners to
enable patients to be cared for locally, while aligning and reducing the
cost for care. This partnership is a win-win for everyone involved.”
With the affiliation agreement, access to even more of Adena’s specialty
services will now be available to patients on the FCMH campus. These specialties
include: Cardiology, Dermatology, Nephrology, Neurology, Ob/Gyn, and Urology.
Adena specialty providers will see patients and perform a number of procedures
within FCMH facilities.
“Our partnership with Adena Health System has gotten off to a great
start, and we are excited to enter into this affiliation to give patients
close-to-home options for their care,” explained FCMH CEO Mike Diener.
“Patients are grateful for the opportunity to receive excellent
specialty care, right here in their hometown.”
Patients can easily schedule an appointment with an Adena specialist on
the FCMH campus.
Adena Pulmonology and Orthopedic specialists are located in FCMH’s
Medical Arts Building #1, Suites 106 and 201, located at 1450 Columbus
Avenue, Washington Court House. The newly-added Adena specialists will
be housed in Suite 340 of FCMH Medical Arts Building #2, located at 1510
