From the Desk of the CEO
2012 ALREADY! 2011 was a very busy year for Golden Plains Community Hospital with so
many changes. 2012 will be a year of calm and settling in. Making it through construction, mov-
ing to the new hospital and starting NextGen have been quite the accomplishments. To top it off,
we are finishing the year very close to budget. All in all, a great year in my book and you should
all be very proud of what this hospital has achieved.

Our new office building is planned for 2012 and a new surgeon will start in late summer. We are
looking forward to adding telemedicine support, with the decision of what platform to deliver it
through still pending. The hospitalist program is an alternative if the telemedicine system doesn’t
give us the increased capabilities we hope it will for our patients.

The new hospital has created interest with specialists from Amarillo to do day surgeries. The outpatient services like Lab
and Radiology have already seen increases in their patient flow. We look forward to seeing those state-of-the-art OR rooms
being utilized on a consistent basis. So, I hope you rested over the holidays and look forward to seeing a busier year ahead.
Busy doing what we do best, taking care of patients.
