Hospital, CEO need to rethink priorities

Published: Friday, March 16, 2012 5:00 a.m. CDT

Congratulations, Mark Steadham, CEO, and the Board of the Morris Hospital.

You have a big, beautiful hospital that you always seem to have the money to keep adding on to.

I read in the paper that you are always adding new modern equipment, which is wonderful, but what good is all of this if you do not employ and maintain personnel that keeps up with the times?

God have pity on you if you are the new kid on the block with new ideas to improve the welfare and comfort of the patient, especially if they cost a few dollars more that will take away from the building fund or bonuses.

How dare you young upstarts coming with your new ways and ideas drawing patients away from the old establishments. You were welcome as long as you knew your place and stayed in it, but when you started to grow and spread your wings, then one way or the other you had to go.

You will be sorely missed Dr. Aziz and HCCI.
