Hospital votes to bring Dr. Phil Aaron back
Dr. Aaron gives reason for joining Westlake: 'It's obvious, I think; our home hospital - Westlake - needs our help.' - DR. PHIL R. AARON.
No problem with Taylor Regional, which has a winning product, he says.
Following a long Executive session which ended after approximately 1 hour, the Adair County Hospital District Board of Trustees voted unanimously to have Interim CEO Tim Menton enter into final negotiations to complete a contract with Dr. Phil Aaron, M.D.
The meeting was chaired by Jim Evans, with all members, Russell Guy Perkins, John Nall, Josh Harden, and Bruce White present.
Dr. Aaron is a Family Practitioner. He is the longest practicing physician in Adair County. He most recently was with the Taylor County Rural Health Clinic in Columbia, KY, and, prior to that, operated the Dr. Phil Aaron Primary Care Center.
There was no mention nor action on a second element of today's agenda, relative to the sale or transfer of the hospital.
Mr. Menton would not give many, details, but said that he thought the contract could be worked out with Dr. Aaron taking patients within two weeks.
He did say that the contract would carry a base salary, with incentives.
"He comes from a family with decades of medical service in Adair County," Mr. Menton said, and added that he believed Dr. Aaron would be a great addition to Westlake.
When asked why he was making this change, Dr. Aaron replied, "It's obvious, I think; our home hospital - Westlake - needs our help."
"No one could have been more supportive to me, personally, than Taylor Regional Hospital, starting with their CEO, Jane Wheatley, all the Way through their staff. They have a Winning product- a credit to health in South Central Kentucky."
"The plan for giving Westlake a boost is to encourage our patients, our citizens, to give Westlake a chance. It has an excellent staff; has the potential to be a top notch facility. I hope We can join hands and turn things around."
