Insider’s Look: BAMC/Kahler Slater’s 2016 Rural Healthcare Leadership Conference Presentation

February 1, 2016

The Rural Healthcare Leadership Conference is a week away! We are excited to share an insider's look at Baldwin Area Medical Center's transformation story that is revolutionizing the way we think about Critical Access Hospitals.

Baldwin Area Medical Center (BAMC) is changing the perception of its campus by integrating the total experience philosophy with their evolving wellness-focused model of care. Alison Page, MHA, MSN, Chief Executive Officer, Baldwin Area Medical Center and Eric Mayne, AIA, RIBA, Associate Principal, Architect, Designer, Kahler Slater, are teaming up at this year’s Rural Health Care Leadership Conference to share the steps BAMC is taking to evolve their campus into a successful wellness community, differentiating themselves in the marketplace and improving the health of their population, starting with their cornerstone project – a New Regional Wellness Center.

“I am very fortunate to be able to tell our story and what we are trying to achieve to a national audience. This presentation comes at an exciting time for Baldwin Area Medical Center – we just announced the launch of our new brand! Our vision is truly starting to come alive.”
