Carris Health to serve in interim management role for Redwood Area Hospital through 2018
Monday, September 24, 2018
During its July 17 meeting, the Redwood Falls City Council approved the transfer agreement of the Redwood Area Hospital to Carris Health effective as of Jan. 1, 2019.
While there are still some months left before the transfer officially takes place, the City of Redwood Falls and Carris Health have entered into an agreement that both believe will help to create a smooth transition of ownership.
According to Keith Muetzel, city administrator, discussions have been taking place between city and hospital leadership and Carris Health to determine what will be happening over the next few months, and from those discussions a plan was developed that will have Carris Health provide interim hospital management services for the remainder of the year.
