    Welcome!Dear Friends,

    Thank you for joining us for Meritus Healthcare Foundations 20th Anniversary Crystal Ball. As we celebrate 20 years of support for our community hospital, I am amazed to look back at the advances in medicine, the medical mysteries unlocked and the transformation of the healthcare delivery model.

    Right now, we are working through a major transformation in the delivery of health care services. As baby boomers age, 10,000 people per day will qualify for Medicare at an average cost of $400,000 per individual during his/her Medicare years. Do the math and you will see that the numbers create new and unique challenges.

    The Affordable Care Act shapes a new health care delivery system that ideally detects illnesses and diseases earlier for more cost-effective treatments and promotes keeping patients well once they leave the hospital. When care is necessary, hospitals are asked to deliver care in the right venuebe that an inpatient or outpatient setting. In short, the Affordable Care Act asks us to focus on the triple aim of health care: population health management, improved quality and cost reduction in health services delivery.

    At Meritus Health, we are embracing change and preparing for the transformation that our organization will undergo in order to maintain health care services for our community. Our transformation includes an equal and balanced approach to: improving quality, ensuring patient safety, and delivering excellent care to every patient.

    You are a partner in helping us meet the challenges we face during this transformative period. Your support ensures that we are ready to provide the best care, every time, for every patient today and for the generations to come.

    Warmly,

    Joseph P. Ross, CEO and PresidentMeritus Health
