Rumor has it that the CEO has frozen the annual cost of living increase, decreased the rate of PTO accrual, and is encouraging employees to take time off without being paid for it.

Is he this woefully inept as a leader, or is he actively trying to cause a mass exodus of all medical professionals that work at MCH to other healthcare facilities?

Bet you this guy that calls himself the c.e.o. is a big time republican. His theory is probably, If I can take wages and benefits away from deserving employees and exploit their labor and devotion, Then I can give myself more raises and benefits for a job well done. How many good middle class, hard working employees is he willing to screw to line his on greedy pockets? He sounds like a hard core republican to me. Take from the poor and give to the rich, sounds about right.

Typical comment from a Muhlenberg County Redneck Straight Ticket Democrat. Did you ever think that he is trying to preserve enough money to keep the doors open? If he just sits there and does nothing, that could happen. Then he will be at blame for that too. Sometimes you have to run a business with business sense, not just ride the train till it quits...

And by the way, I am a registered Democrat....

I would hate to see the doors closed and all employees sent home.Take the time off and give the CEO time to work through this.Closing the hospital would be a BIG loss to this county.

People can't afford to take off without pay. MCH is turning into a horrible place to work. Great people are there, but administration is horrible and put of touch. That's why many Muhlenberg residents work at RMC, OMHS, Jenny Stuart, and Bowling Green. NO incentive to come to or stay at MCH.

Just going by what 1000's of other republican c.e.o.'s have done to good american workers in years past. You sound like a bush fan to me, bet you are a member of muhlenberg chamber of commerence. You didn't say you voted democrat, you said you were a registered democrat. Wonder how much cut in wages and benefits this c.e.o. will take? I believe you and I both know that answer.
Well

Times are tough in healthcare. Both the elephants and the donkeys are taking away monies and it is the indigent and the working poor that can't afford healthcare will take the greatest hits.

It's a fact that very few citizens of muhlenberg county know anything about running a business but I'll guarantee you this much, they'll understand a little more about it if the doors ever close on MCH. The hospital is the largest employer in the county and when the money for the payroll is no longer there, people will be forced to go to other places and towns to find work and they'll eventually move closer, leaving our county a ghost county and the domino effect will begin with other businesses that have relied on that capital for their businesses which will result in more layoffs and then closures. As a business owner myself, after walking the halls of most hospitals, most of those employees are lucky to even have a job. Some are honest, hard working people who like their jobs and the rest are lazy people who just wanna complain and blame everything on some political party and I am a democrat.

If the c.e.o. is not willing to make the sarafice that he is asking of the employee's, then fire his butt. If he's serious he should step to the plate and be the first in loss wages and benefits. He should also take furlough days without pay. I guess this is simply mad, crazy talk from a liberal to ask a republican leader to give his wages up first.

No rumor, it's true. The hospital is still fighting the battle with the Trover Doctors at Powderly that want to shut them down. Trover Health Care is offering the Powderly Doctors all types of bonuses to do this. Last month Dr. Hardison refused to sign off on patients he had seen at Muhlenberg Community Hospital during the past months. That cost the hospital a lost of $400,000.00 simply because he was being an ass and wants to do as much harm as he can to MCH. After all he sits on Trovers Board. If the community wants to have a hospital, then they all need to quit seeing the greedy bastards at Powderly.

I don't understand why they always start the cuts at the bottom the ones that need it the most. But I guess that's the way it is anywhere you work it would be a shame if the higher ups would take a pay cut. But I guess that's what it takes to keep good management. LOL

Several nurses will look for another job and that will put the hospital in a bigger bind. After driving for a few months they will try to move due to the price of gas. Greenville will loose several thousands of dollars after all is said and done. What will become of Greenville? I hope this CEO knows what he is doing. Who in their wright mind wants to work for free? The city of Greenville should have a hospital but no one should work for free.

I bet the c.e.o. at MCH makes above 100.00 dollars an hour. That's about 250.000 thousand dollars a year. Maybe he should drop his wages to 125.000 thousand dollars a year and take days off without pay. Wait!! I must have been out of my mind thinking he would put the hospital and employees ahead of his republican self. Set an example, don't ask your employees to sacrafice wages and benefits that you are not willing to sacrafice. Think like at good democrat.

First, it's "sacrifice" not "sacrafice". Second, the whole hospital board, who guides the management is Democrat. This CEO has been there, what...1 year. The board has largly been the same for several years or decades. I dont see you talking about them. Before you start making pronouncements, would you please show proof the CEO is a republican. If not, shut your mouth. Third, "Think like a good democrat"? Let me try:

1. Complain that a company that is in bad financial shape should pay their workers more. That will make your revenue problems better.
2. Instead of focusing on why the business is failing, lets blame the 100k, that you claim is in excess, that one person is making. Divide that 100k amoung the MCH employees. Thats roughly $15.00 a month. Yep, that will save you and the business.
3. Blame someone else...always blame someone else. Make sure that someone makes more money than you.

Truth is MCH has been loosing for a while now for many reasons...some can be helped some are natural market forces. The rest of the business world has had to cut to the bone in the last 5 years to stay afloat. The reason everyone hasn't experienced this is because 50% of you work for the government in some form, and we know they aren't cutting anywhere. I personally know several MCH employees who set for hours without work to do...texting and making personal calls. Layoffs and furlows are long overdue it would seem. It would seem a "good democrat" or maybe just "Concerned in Muhlenberg" would keep everyone on a sinking ship, hoping that it would eventually float one day.
