Catskill Regional CEO UPDATE

From the CEO

Catskill Regional Medical Center Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Schiller

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting with community leaders representing large populations of summer visitors to our Catskill region, as well as the Hatzolah, MobilMedic, Law Enforcement and EMS officials who coordinate First Responder activities in our community. With gratitude, I share that their feedback of the experience and care provided by our Medical Center during our busiest season was excellent! Trips to the Emergency Department were quick and efficient, partly because the team in our Emergency Department tested a new concept for us, “Provider In Triage”. Inpatient, outpatient and ancillary services were frequented by our summer visitors, with great compliments to our staff for their compassion, expertise and friendly approach to patient care. Congratulations to all for a great summer!

As we turn the calendar and welcome autumn, we are reminded that flu season will be upon us sooner than we’d like. Please protect yourselves, patients, co-workers and families by getting a flu shot this month. Take time for yourself this month, enjoy the beauty of our Catskill Region as we welcome autumn and the wonderful opportunities presented to us for enjoying a healthy, outdoor lifestyle, festivals and activities.

Yours In Service,

Jonathan Schiller

Thank you!
