60. MED Halts Spin-Off of Loop Clinics -

The board for The Regional Medical Center at Memphis decided Thursday to rescind the decision to spin off its Health Loop clinics to the Memphis Health Center.

The spin-off, which was recommended by FTI Cambio as a cost-cutting move, was originally proposed for completion months ago.

Dr. Reginald Coopwood, who became chief executive officer of The MED on March 1 when FTI Cambio’s management contract expired, had reservations about the hospital being without a primary care network.

At his job interview last November, he questioned whether the Memphis Health Center would continue referring patients to The MED.

Last month, he told Shelby County commissioners the hospital was reconsidering the decision to spin off the clinic.

It has yet to be determined, however, whether the hospital will keep the clinics for the long-term or strike a partnership with another health care entity.

“What our team will be doing is looking at whether the Loop Clinics are a good deal for The MED, or do we need to consider other options for Loop Clinics outside of The MED,” Coopwood said.

The clinics had an $8 million operating loss for the hospital during its 2009 fiscal year, an estimated $4.4 million loss for this year, a $2.6 million projected loss for 2011 and a $1.5 million projected loss for 2012.

A projection sheet the board considered Thursday would have the clinics operating in the black if Shelby County provides $2 million in subsidies this year and next year, which would be lowered to $1.5 million in 2012.

In the past, the county has subsidized the operation of the clinics with $3.8 million a year.

The MED early last year approached Christ Community Health Services and Memphis Health Center, which are federally qualified health clinics, about taking over their operations.

FTI Cambio had hoped to spin off the clinics by year’s end.

Only the Memphis Health Center agreed to consider the proposal.

On Dec. 17, The MED board passed a resolution approving the proposal to spin off five outpatient care clinics. The locations are the Hollywood, Bisson, Frayser, Third Street and Gurthrie clinics.

The decision Thursday to rescind that resolution was announced after an hourlong closed- door session, but the action will not become official until a follow-up vote occurs. That vote will be scheduled after seven days have passed, in accordance with state law.

Delays with the proposed spin-off were also a factor in the board’s decision.

“This was supposed to have happened in December,” Coopwood said. “We’re into late April going into May. In order for us to make the right decision, give the board good information, this is the first step that we had to do, is rescind that decision.”

management of the MED and devising strategies to cut costs.
