Licensure of Outpatient Surgery, Emergency Areas Main Issues for Shuttered Cheboygan Memorial Hospital
CMS and MacLaren Health Care Corporation have expressed concern over the recent shuttering of Cheboygan (Mich.) Memorial Hospital, following continued issues with certification and licensure of emergency services and outpatient surgery through CMS, according to a Soo Evening News report.
The licensure issues require surveys that could take 45 to 180 days to complete, according to a hospital press release. According to the report, McLaren did not approach CMS staff to discuss their options until March 30. CMS has since spoken with McLaren about available options, including the possibility of providing services off-site from its Northern Michigan Regional Hospital facility in Petoskey.
CMH, limited in operational funds and under a U.S. Bankruptcy Court order, shut down its medical services by midnight last Tuesday.
