This hospital for the last 4 years between oct and dec every year laid off 5% of the work force. and as always the employees with a more than a few years of experience (like 7-12 years) are the one let go. Then a month later here they are advertising for more people and how great of a place it is to work. Of course the new people are always paid less and every year the administration gets more money for this yearly stunt.
so now the over all payroll is VERY top heavy. At some point patients will not come here like they did in the past.
a month ago the president has stepped down or retired?. In time we will see if all of the blood sucking fleas have left the dog.

This purely public charity has the TVs locked on political channel FOX NEWS and will not permit the channel to be changed to a health or cartoon channel. I asked to have it changed & was told because they were so concerned over children seeing inappropriate programs on all the cartoon channels they could not change the channel. It warmed my heart to learn how concerned they were about insuring the viewers were indocrinated to their political views and not exposing children to the lewd cartoon channels. Can purely public charities engage in partisan political action like this?
