In a trip around the state, Rich Rasmussen, President of the Oklahoma Hospital Association (OHA), stopped in on Thursday to visit with hospital President & CEap, Brian Whitfield. Rasmussen recently took over at OHA following the retirement of Patti Davis.
In his visit, Rich and Brian discussed challenges that face the hospital and the administrations resolve to push through those challenges. Following his visit, Brian had this to say:
"Rich is clearly interested in the challenges we face and working together to find resources for rural hospitals in Oklahoma." Brian said.
"He's clearly a visionary, with an emphasis on sustainability for our hospitals. It was a great meeting." Brian continued.
Rich posted a video with his thoughts on his visits to southeastern Oklahoma with McCurtain County being his final stop on Thursday. Check out his video here: https://www.cyranoapp.media/msg/?q=1602a3ed-9b78-11ee-80bc-12de0eaf3ef9
