                                     In our state, the looming crisis prompted the governor to appoint a task force to examine
                                     the situation and propose solutions.

                                     The Westerly Hospital was an active participant in the process. The vice-chair of our Board
                                     of Trustees and one of nurses were at the table. Some of the findings and recommendations
                                     are summarized in this report. Our 2008 strategy for the future of the Hospital includes an
                                     aggressive program of physician recruitment to meet the needs of our patients, and advocating
                                     for action at the state level. Refinements and additions to our services will keep The Westerly
                                     Hospital the hospital of choice for patients and physicians.

                                     The past year demonstrates that our community can have continued confidence in the quality
                                     of our clinical programs and in the level of attention we pay to our service. The year ahead
                                     must include significant improvement from a financial perspective. In pursuing that goal, we
                                     will work hard to earn the continued support of our community.

First in the region to offer catheter-free test for GERD
Physicians of Gastroenterology Specialists of Westerly and Mystic were the first in this region to
offer the Medtronic Bravo pH Monitoring System, a patient-friendly method of measuring
esophageal pH levels in patients with severe heartburn, or gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD).
This method allows physicians to diagnose the condition in a more comfortable way than the
traditional pH testing method, which involves placing a thin tube through the nose and down
the esophagus.

Award Winning Diabetes Education Program
The Westerly Hospital offered to the community a six-week course last Spring to help diabetics man-
age their disease while maintaining an active and productive lifestyle. Taught by Certified Diabetes
Outpatient Educators, The Westerly Hospital’s outpatient diabetes program was recently awarded
Continuing Education Recognition from the American Diabetes Association for meeting national
standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs.

The Westerly Hospital prides itself on its quality of care. To that end, our leadership and clinicians
are working together to incorporate best-practice procedures from hospitals across the country and
the state to continuously refine our care.

Accredited Services
This past summer, the Westerly Hospital received several important accreditations, including an
overall accreditation for the entire hospital from the Joint Commission, a nationwide seal of approval
that indicates a hospital meets high performance standards. The Hospital also received the following
    Laboratory accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) as well as by the
    American Association of Blood Banks (AABB).
    Diagnostic Imaging department accredited for its MRI services by the American College of
    Radiology and its Mammography services by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration/
    Mammography Quality Standards Act (FDA/MQSA).

An Environment of Continuous Learning
T improve the knowledge base of its physician staff, the Westerly Hospital offers a Continuing
Medical Education program (CME) overseen by a committee comprised of a physician chairman,
coordinator, several physician members, and representation from the hospital administration. In 2007,
the Hospital’s program was accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical
Education, a national body that provides stringent guidelines that must be met by all institutions
involved in the educational process.

Exceeding Hospital Quality Standards
Medicare and the Joint Commission require that hospitals across the nation report their performance
in 25 areas of clinical quality standards, known as “Core Measures.” These measures reflect the
treatment of patients diagnosed with congestive heart failure, heart attack, pneumonia, and those
requiring surgical procedures, some of the most common reasons patients are admitted to a hospital.
Our physicians and nurses have recorded some of the highest scores in the state in these areas, and
we continue to stay abreast of methodologies that will ensure such care continues. This past
November, the Hospital received an award from Quality Partners of RI, a nationally recognized
leader in healthcare quality improvement, for our performance on our Surgical Core Measures.

Award Winning Medical Emergency T          eam
Last February, the Westerly Hospital established a Medical Emergency T     eam (MET), a team of
clinical staff members including respiratory therapists and critical care nurses charged with bringing
advanced care to a patient who appears to be failing before that patient worsens and goes into respira-
tory failure or suffers a heart attack or stroke. Our Medical Emergency T  eam was proud to receive an
Honorable Mention Advancing Innovation in Healthcare Award from Quality Partners of RI this year.

Continuous Improvements in Intensive Care
The Westerly Hospital continues to improve the quality of its Intensive Care Unit as an active
member of the Rhode Island ICU Collaborative. Among our many achievements in 2007, the
Hospital implemented proven strategies in intensive care that reduce length of stay, complications,
and associated costs. Specifically, the Hospital saw eight months of no ventilator associated pneumo-
nia and nine months of no catheter related blood stream infections.

Fiscal 2007 posed continuing financial concerns for the Hospital. The Hospital received $70,970,000
in net patient revenue and other operating sources and incurred expenses of $76,941,000. Offset by invest-
ment income and by funds raised for capital purchases, the bottom line loss was $1.7 million. We provided
$1.3 million in charity care and incurred bad debt amounting to $4.6 million.

In 2007, Charles S. Kinney, President and CEO of The Westerly Hospital, was awarded the Partnership for
