FMH CEO KATHERINE BUNTING-WILLIAMS, PH.D., SPEAKS AT NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ISSUES AFFECTING RURAL HOSPITALS

Fairfield Memorial Hospital’s Chief Executive Officer, Katherine Bunting-Williams, PhD was a speaker at the 9th Annual Becker’s meeting in Chicago, Illinois on April 14th. There were more than 3,000 attendees from Hospitals and Health Systems across the Nation at the annual Becker’s meeting. Dr. Bunting-Williams was a presenter for two different sessions. The first session’s topic was Issues for Rural Hospitals and Health Systems and the second session focused on Healthcare Delivery in Rural Markets at Risk of Losing Hospitals.

Becker’s Healthcare publications and events share a common mission, to inform and entertain. Sessions cover a wide variety of topics and perspectives, from high-level discussions about strategy to on the ground observations on what keeps hospitals operating in peak condition. Attendees had the opportunity to hear from celebrity keynote speakers Bill Clinton, Founder of the Clinton Foundation and 42nd President of the USA, and George W. Bush, 43rd President of the USA.

In addition to the honor of being asked to speak at this national conference, Dr. Bunting-Williams was recently recognized by Becker’s as one of the 50 Rural Hospital CEO’s to Know in 2018. The CEO’s featured on this list have overcome significant challenges operating rural community and critical access hospitals to lead sustainable and thriving organizations. Many CEO’s have served their institutions for decades, recruiting physicians, expanding services and implementing technology platforms to ensure the best care possible for their communities. The CEO’s featured on the list lead hospitals to consistently be recognized by the National Rural Health Association, American Hospital Association and HIMSS as top institutions. Dr. Bunting-Williams has been with FMH for 20 years.

“I am proud to be a part of this organization. We have a progressive thinking Board of Directors, who help support our efforts to bring new services to our community and to make sure we continue to prosper. To be asked to speak about our successes at FMH at a national conference is quite an honor and it further validates the quality of care we provide. None of this would be possible without the support of our Medical Staff and the more than 300 employees that work at Fairfield Memorial Hospital. We are truly blessed here at FMH.”stated Katherine Bunting-Williams, Ph.D., FMH Chief Executive Officer.
