The SouthEast Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) continues to look for ways to best use its resources and in addition to some of the other changes that have been made, it's been decided to consolidate its Medevac services to a single provider, rather than utilizing multiple resources. SEARHC is presently looking into more efficient and cost effective alternatives and anticipate announcing who or what that will be, by Oct. 1, after competitive bids are analyzed. Until that decision has been made, the service will continue to all locations as in the past, only through a single carrier. The way the service has been operated and organized has proven to be very expensive, less than ideal and has generated an unnecessary loss of revenue that the organization can no longer sustain.

SEARHC to change the way it operates its Medevac service

The SouthEast Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) continues to look for ways to best use its resources and in addition to some of the other changes that have been made, it's been decided to consolidate its Medevac services to a single provider, rather than utilizing multiple resources. SEARHC is presently looking into more efficient and cost effective alternatives and anticipate announcing who or what that will be, by Oct. 1, after competitive bids are analyzed. Until that decision has been made, the service will continue to all locations as in the past, only through a single carrier. The way the service has been operated and organized has proven to be very expensive, less than ideal and has generated an unnecessary loss of revenue that the organization can no longer sustain.

The SEARHC employees that are affected are being offered RN positions within the organization and if they are interested in another position, SEARHC will make every reasonable effort to place them into that position, provided they are qualified.

SEARHC would like to thank Flight Nurses Todd Heininger who's been with them for two years and seven months, Katherine Dangel who's been with them for 18 years and 11 months and Gale Kehres who's been with them for 10 years and 7 months. Their dedication and hard work has not gone unnoticed and it is hoped they continue to stay with SEARHC. If not, SEARHC honors their decision and wish them all the best.
