◆ A consultant whose oversight of MCCHC will include physician and allied health professional licensure, credentialing and practice oversight will be approved by the ISDH and hired by the MCCHC. The consultant will make regular reports to the ISDH.

Malone said the board of directors has taken the ISDH directive very seriously and ensured that they are compliant with federal requirements and fully recognize they have to abide by state and federal statutes.

“I respect their right to make an informed decision,” Malone said.

He said the board has undertaken a number of initiatives to rebuild confidence including an early federal review, strategic scenario training conducted by Anderson University faculty, employment of a media consultant and employment of legal counsel.
