Another cautionary tale to hospital administrators: don't underestimate the importance of having a quality anesthesia group that has skin in the game. Even if they cost a little more, that investment will pay for itself many times over and the grass isn't always greener. The wrong choice and an administrator may be packing his/her bags (as we've seen time and again).
Also, a lesson to AMC's to treat their providers well. Anesthesia can make or break a hospital's bottom line and all "providers" are not equal.

These hospital administrators are like bad docs. They just move on and find a better gig.

Just look over various professional sites. They just bounce from one place and move on to another executive hospital job and jack up their Cv due to "expertise"

So... this is the second thread you've started (about Northstar, which is suspicious) with some lofty attributions without literally any evidence to back you up - first rule of starting up a random rumor mill mob, correlation doesn't imply causation.

Here's this article, from earlier this year attributing the loss of Baptist Health's CEO to ongoing operating losses (easily a more salient explanation) - Baptist Health CEO out amid continued operating losses - is that what you are referring to? Whats your angle here, for real?

Different CEO/different story bro. Come on now, surely you guys are more internet savvy than that;)

Baptist Health Paducah President William Brown suddenly resigns: 4 notes

PS. Only MO is respect from the suits for a field of medicine that is far beyond their understanding.

Remind us again how internet savvy-ness and unsubstantiated rumor-mongering are related?

It's threads like these that make me think we need a reddit-style thumbs down so that they'll just disappear.
