Yesterday, Thursday, December 8, the BCIA approved a contract with a new consultant that would manage the hospital after March 15, 2017 — if there is a need to have an interim manager. The County now acknowledges that it is unlikely to complete negotiations with one of the six bidders in time for them to takeover in barely three months.
The company is ToneyKorf Partners and is described in the Record as a nationally recognized health care advisory firm. HPAE staff is currently doing research into the background of this company. We are also in the process of getting a copy of the contract between the County and this new consultant. We will be finding out how this development impacts our members, our contract and the patients of BRMC.
We hope to have more information early next week. We will let you know as soon as we have any additional details.
