Holy Cross Hospital Updates

Board review by Bill and Steve

In an effort to help our community understand the changes happening in health care and at the hospital, we will be posting regular updates from the administration at Holy Cross Hospital to help share some internal information with the public.


Taos Health Systems CEO - CFO Change of Employment

The current management agreement between Taos Health Systems (THS) and Quorum Health Resources LLC (Quorum) expires in April, 2016. Prior to entering into discussions regarding the process by which this contract might be updated/renewed, THS and Quorum have agreed to enter into negotiations related to the employment status of the current CEO, Bill Patten, and the current CFO, Steve Rozenboom. The desired outcome of these negotiations is for Patten and Rozenboom to become directly employed by THS. These negotiations will be completed prior to any renewal of the management agreement.

For more information please contact:
Bill Patten, CEO, at 575-751-5766

Community Health Needs Assesment

Taos Health Systems recently completed an assessment of health needs for residents in Taos County. We have also developed a plan for using its services to respond to the significant community needs identified in the report.  A copy of the report is available for your review here and is available for inspection and copying in the hospital’s administrative office, M-F, 9 am to 4 pm.

Taos Health Systems will revise its implementation efforts each year and undertake a new study to revise this report in two to three years. Your review is encouraged and submission of comments for consideration is welcomed.  Please take the time to review the needs identified in the report and help the hospital take actions to make improvements resulting in Taos County being an increasingly healthy place to live.

Follow this link to view the report.
