27 | JONES RE­GIONAL MED­I­CAL CEN­TER

Modern Healthcare - - HEALTHCARE’S HOTTEST -

WHAT IT DOES: Jones Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter is a hospi­tal in Anamosa, Iowa, that serves more than 8,000 pa­tients a year. HOW IT GREW:

Al­most all of Jones’ 150% surge in rev­enue has come since 2009, when the hospi­tal moved to a new $14 mil­lion build­ing in Anamosa. That move helped the hospi­tal so­lid­ify its pres­ence in Jones County and ex­pand its reach to neigh­bor­ing com­mu­ni­ties.

“Jones Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter is a prime ex­am­ple of how St. Luke’s and the Iowa Health Sys­tem are sup­port­ing and rein­vest­ing in lo­cal health­care op­tions,” Ted Townsend, CEO of Jones’ par­ent com­pany, St. Luke’s Hospi­tal, Cedar Rapids, said in an e-mail. “Jones Re­gional has ex­ceeded ex­pec­ta­tions, not only from a qual­ity of care per­spec­tive, but also for in­creas­ing pa­tient and staff sat­is­fac­tion.”

The hospi­tal’s growth does not seem to be slow­ing. CEO Eric Briese­meis­ter and his ex­ec­u­tive team are work­ing on a ma­jor cap­i­tal ex­pan­sion plan for the med­i­cal cen­ter.
