Congratulations to the graduates of our July CNA Class! The following graduates have completed 100 hours of classroom and clinical instruction through the TLC Institute: Makayla Kays, Brittany Belk, Briana Ferrante, Mikaela Swank, Alesha Kegelman, Paetan Benson, and Lisa Wojtkowski.

     The Family Health Clinic of Barnes-Kasson Hospital is pleased to feature Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Michael S. Ashman as this quarter’s Provider Spotlight. He has been employed at Barnes-Kasson since 2008 and treats patients of all ages who suffer from various skin conditions as well as diseases of the hair and nails. Whether it is common cases of acne or psoriasis, or more complex issues involving skin cancer, Dr. Ashman is able to treat a wide variety of conditions.
     Dr. Ashman grew up in Boston, Massachusetts. He originally attended Harvard University as a literature major, and later attended Temple University in Philadelphia for pre-med. He worked as a nurse in Philadelphia and completed his medical school requirements while working as an intern at Temple. In the early 1970’s he joined the Air Force and worked stateside for the Medical Corps. It was during his time in the Air Force that he took an exceptional liking to dermatology after being involved in an unusual case where a soldier developed a rare fungus of the skin. Dr. Ashman went on to become a Board Certified Dermatologist in 1975 after attending Northwestern University in Chicago.

Members of the hospital community joined Wolf Administration leaders today to announce a new pilot program designed to improve rural community health and provide financial stability for rural hospitals.

The Rural Health Model is a global budget payment model in which hospitals are provided a fixed amount of funding for a fixed period of time to improve the health of Pennsylvania’s rural communities, rather than a model that reimburses hospitals for individual services or cases. The program is a partnership between Pennsylvania’s rural hospital community, the state Department of Health, and the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation.

The pilot formally began January 1, 2019, with five rural hospitals participating in the first year of the program. The first-year pilot hospital participants are:

◾Barnes-Kasson Hospital

◾Endless Mountains Health Systems

◾Geisinger Jersey Shore Hospital

◾UPMC Kane

◾Wayne Memorial Hospital
