Trivergent Health Alliance Leadership

I missed two days of blogging last week due to so many meetings and trips to Frederick and Hagerstown that were Alliance related.  Last week, we started interviews at the Corporate Director level for the MSO and finished our second round of interviews for the CEO of the Alliance MSO.  The candidates for each of the positions did an excellent job.  Each was so well prepared for the sets of interviews with the CEOs and the CFOs.  We will finish the interviews next week and make recommendations to the MSO CEO, who will make the final selection.  As for the Alliance MSO CEO, we hope to have a selection by the end of this month.  The CEOs will have a conference call with our Executive Recruiter tomorrow afternoon and will hopefully reach a decision shortly thereafter.  

The Alliance is proceeding nicely in that the operating agreements have been finalized and approved by both the Alliance Board and the Frederick Regional Health System Board of Directors.  The Boards for both Meritus and WMHS meet with this week and the agreements should be approved by the close of business on Thursday. This week there will also be meetings with the various managers and supervisors of departments that will be part of the MSO in order to brief them primarily on the HR aspects of the Alliance MSO. 

All is all we continue to make great progress and continue on track for a July 1 start to the MSO.
