A message from Ridgeview President and CEO Mike Phelps, April 15, 2020
I am writing today to provide some regional context to messaging you may be hearing and reading about hospitals’ and health systems’ preparedness for the COVID-19 pandemic, and the associated financial hardships on the health care industry.
There is no question these are unprecedented times which have health care organizations — including Ridgeview — preparing and investing in additional clinical resources and expanding capacity for an unknown level of volume of patients.
