How CHC Provides Help Where Hospitals Need ItSM


CHC was instrumental in developing and implementing a multipronged approach and turnaround plan that improved revenue cycle, supply spending, financial forecasting and other areas of focus for Memorial Health System of East Texas, Lufkin, Texas.

In their report released June 28, 2013, Moody’s affirmed their bond rating and stable outlook for MHSET under the direction of management by CHC, noting:


“CHC gives MHSET access to market and business data previously unavailable in order to better monitor its performance and benchmarks. With the continued assistance of CHC, management should continue to implement process improvement and growth strategies that will improve performance during the remainder of FY 2013.”
