Fairfield Hospital District Board approves management agreement with Community Hospital Consulting

During a recent meeting on Sept. 8, 2016, The Fairfield Hospital District (FHD) Board approved a management agreement with Community Hospital Consulting (CHC Consulting), the management and consulting arm of Community Hospital Corporation of Plano, Texas. The agreement will become effective​ at the time the hospital transitions to the district, commencing on January 1, 2017.


The decision by the FHD Board is a strategic step toward preserving and improving​ ​healthcare services for the future.​ ​"We are excited to continue our collaboration with CHC Consulting to strengthen the​ ​services that we provide to our citizens in and around Freestone County," said Fairfield​ ​Hospital District Board Chair George Robinson.

The 37-bed hospital in Fairfield is currently operated by ETMC with Transition Services​ ​provided by CHC Consulting. FHD is planning to rename the facility Freestone Medical​ ​Center once the transition is complete. The hospital provides healthcare services to​ ​residents of Fairfield and neighboring East Texas communities, including Buffalo, Jewett,​ ​Mexia, Streetman, Teague, Wortham, and beyond.

Recently, the FHD Board signed an affiliation agreement with Baylor Scott  & White​ ​Health to "provide advisory and educational services to FHD management and staff to​ ​improve operations and care, as well as provide access to other resources which smallerhealth care organizations typically do not have. Baylor Scott & White Medical Center –Hillcrest in Waco is the closest Baylor Scott & White medical center to FHD, so much ofthe guidance and consultation will come from administrative and clinical staff at thatfacility."
