AK hospitals in spat over patient agreements

The Miami Herald / Associated Press, July 28, 2014
A surgical center recently opened its doors to patients, but not everyone can be treated at the new hospital. Because Central Peninsula Hospital won't enter a transfer agreement with the Surgery Center of Kenai, it cannot perform procedures on Medicare and Medicaid patients, the Peninsula Clarion reported. When the center was under construction, it requested agreements with Alaska Regional Hospital in Anchorage, Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage and Central Peninsula Hospital in Kenai, said Harold Gear, the center's vice president. The Surgery Center of Kenai meets state licensing requirements.
