Audit of services
complete at LHS

Bill Maxwell, president of the governing board of Lawrence Health Services, informed the board at Monday's regular meeting that the annual audit of the system's services was complete. Susan Miller, representing Baird, Kurtz and Dobson, offered the report. She stated that the auditing company received management and employee cooperation.

Miller made the management officials of the healthcare system and board aware of a change in 2008 reporting. The federal government has issued a new reporting standard.

In another bit of good news, Osbahr reported that the annual golf tournament sponsored by the Lawrence Memorial Health Foundation raised $26,845. These funds are monitored by a dedicated board and earmarked for purchases or programs outside the regular budget.

It was also announced that LHS is now offering after-hours mammogram service. Based on the recommendation of medical staff, mammograms will be available every Tuesday evening from 5:30-9:30 p.m. In addition, ultrasound services are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Osbahr reported that the delivery of a new CT scan is on schedule for Nov. 6. "Having access to an emergency service is very important to our patients and others who live or travel through the area," said Osbahr. "Upgrading our CT scan service is to the benefit of all our physicians, staff and patients."
