Mark Bolton ’94, Holding Fund President, is the CEO of Federal Healthcare Services, which staffs health care providers to remote areas of the U.S. When COVID-19 hit, he was working at the ED at Lost Rivers, a tiny critical access hospital in Arco, Idaho, population ~2000. (Trivia fact: It was the first town in history to be 100% lit by nuclear power for ~1 hour in 1955.) His wife at home in Ohio doesn’t expect to see him for weeks, if not months. Caring for patients in the very rural setting in this pandemic has been a novel experience, he tells us. Besides the 6.5 earthquake this past week, they have been rocked by a lack of toilet paper but not PPE. Getting creative, they were able to trade N95s for toilet paper with a downstate hospital. Who knew?! The hospital is only going to get $5,000 from the stimulus package, so they are wondering how they will survive. At the moment, Mark, who usually transfers very sick patients out to larger regional hospitals, is working with the hospital network to accept patients into his facility to share in the total bed capacity across the state.
