I believe MCCH will be sold to a "for profit hospital company" in 2013.

However, NOBODY will be able to successfully manage the hospital with Obamacare being implemented.
We can't give away anything of value for FREE, without taking it from someone else, in the form of higher taxes, loss of jobs, reduced hours, etc. Unfortunately, the employees that lost/are going to lose their jobs, their salaries/benefits will now be used to pay for the people that are getting it for FREE, as mandatede by Obamacare.
It is a terrible shameful system, but that is Obamacare in a nutshell and it will get much worse as more parts of it are enacted and will affect many other businesses.
You are exactly right!

The law is already in place. Volumes of new regulations hospitals have to follow. It's a mess.

It will only get worse as more of ObamaCare is implemented. More layoffs and higher taxes/fees on those that get to keep their job.

this is essentially how it works.. The more you make, the more taxes you pay, bringing the desire to succeed further into the depths. The richer man needs to work harder for less, and the poor work less, and receive more. I don't see the strategy in that, but hey... He was elected once again..all hail the chief

I hope you are right - then the 20% of there who are doing our jobs might get to stay and the dead wood just clocking their 30+ years will go! Now you only get fired if you aren't related to anyone else....

It's many departments - Nurses, housekeeping, maintenance, patient services, nutrition, etc. Everybody except the head honchos of course!

Oh yeah, and guess what - now of course the flu is all over, so some days they are busy - and the staff that remains gets to do more work, no raise, and you get sent home 1/2 way through your day if there isn't enough "census" so they flex you. gas is at $3.35+ and you drive all the way there to be sent home no pay after 2 hours!

The hospital has flexed workers for years now. I remember times only working literally half my schedule due to low census. Sounds great, until you get the paycheck.

Well being one of the layoffs this round, more to come, I have to agree with this. They need to acess all the workers as to see if they are needed, there are to many worker pushing papers around, whats with all these new offices being build in the North Tower 3 and forth floors.. are these people realy needed.. these rooms could be put to better use.
