- Arcon presentation to Town Board impressive Contin ued from front page ultimate goal is to bring four major services to the Pahrump Center for Healthcare, aside from their immediate goal of providing 24 hour care by March I: 1 - Primary care clinics where family doctors practice. 2 - Emergency care centers 3 - Ancillary (supplemental) services including x-rays, laboratories, pharmacies, and others. 4 - Outpatient surgery centers. "In short, Arcon will provide affordable, accessible health care" to the people of Pahrump. Arcon has recruited "many of the nation's premier com- panies in healthcare, technology, and business to join Arcon in providing services" to rural America. Connery singled out several, including General Electric, Anderson Consulting, PeopleSoft, and Laboratory Corporation of America. Arcon could serve as a model for the Nye County Com- mission, when meeting as the Nye County Hospital Board of Trustees (NRMC), to discuss as an option. Commissioner Cameron McRae has publicly advocated the private sector take over the troubled Nye Regional Medical Center. Connery specifically founded his company to overcome "the barriers to furnishing more equitable care" in rural America at more affordable costs. Koford stated Arcon is "committed to providing 24 hour care by March." Koford also explained the need to recruit physicians, physicians assistants, and nurse practitioners in order to bring "as much quality care as possible," approxi- mately 85 to 90 percent of all care provided. Koford also said Arcon will develop relationships with Las Vegas area hospi- tals and will be "insurance fi'iendly." In addition to the same insurance St. Rose accepted, Arcon will attempt to establish relationships with more coverage providers. Both Connery and Koford singled out Carma Kreitler and the entire staff for their excellent effort during the St. Rose/ Arcon transition which occurred the weekend of January 20. St. Rose emptied out "everything," including half empty boxes of Kleenex, paper clips, pictures off walls, and drugs. Computers were also taken. Within 48 hours, Kreitler and staff "completely restocked" the facility and Arcon's new computers were on linej "we never missed a beat because of them," said Connery.
