A statement for openness: Agrees with Jon Halsey on hospital
Writer's personal commentary: The whole thing points to the folly of trying to keep a skunk in a bag. - GEO. KOLBENSCLAG
By George Kolbenschlag
Jon Halsey writes a thoughtful letter about the hospital. The whole thing points to the folly of trying to keep a skunk in a bag.
When there is negative news it causes far less agony for everyone if the response is open, honest disclosure.
Whether true or not, the perception is that has not been the case with our hospital.
Mr. Halsey's letter is reasoned and fair. As long as the perceived subtrifuge continues it's hard not to believe there's been "mismanagement and financial chicanery."
As far as having a hospital as a vehicle for drawing business to Adair, I fear it's too late for that. Even if the hospital is turned around it will take years to rebuild confidence.
It may be time to cut our losses and focus on a good, well run and fiscally sound "basic care unit."
I think Mr. Halsey got it right. - George KolbenschlagComments re article 53220 Too much emotionalism politics in hospital situation writer says
