As the Dr. John Warner Hospital looks ahead to 2016 and the things to come, their Board President says 2015 was a very good year financially.

Aaron Kammeyer leads the Hospital Board and says the hospital finished the year with a positive bottom line thanks to new programs and a rejuvenated effort to manage costs.

Kammeyer indicates their focus will focus to expand their services. He explains they don't want to just focus on expanding services but focusing on bringing in services the community is in need of.

For Kammeyer, they will always be looking at the budget and trying to find ways to improve.

In 2015, the DJWH renamed their Rural Health 'Family Medicine' and made some small, inexpensive cosmetic upgrades inside the hospital. Kammeyer indicates the Board will be gathering for a one day retreat later this month to discuss long term goals.
