Regional One Health Spotlight – President and CEO, Dr. Reginald Coopwood
On behalf of the Regional One staff and patients Dr. Coopwood thanked One Club members
for their continued support of ROH. He then provided the membership with a “spotlight
moment” on Regional One Health moving forward. He described the way ROH’s innovative
complex care initiative works with super-utilizers who seek healthcare through emergency
room visits. Dr. Coopwood explained that creating authentic relationships with these patients
has brought amazing results. The initiative is improving the health of vulnerable residents,
reducing the frequent ER visits and has brought a $1.9 million benefit to the ROH bottom line.
One Club President, Karen Johnston, gave a quick One Club update and presented three gift
options for discussion. The membership voted to purchase a special rocking recliner for

overview of the One Club member page that is on the ROH website. Mary Catherine asked
