One. Health care isn't cheap.
Two. If you expect someone to pay for your services - make sure the quaility is good (St. Claire f*cking sucks)
Three. Those that loose their jobs probably derserve it. I know a few that could definately be done without.
Four. That f*cking place is nasty and corrupt - they are probably broke because of insurance fraud and got busted on it.

I think it has to do with them being a religious based hospitial. Also blaming a lot of it on corruption.

I like to compare the downfall to the summations of Jim Collins (2011), he compares corporate decline to a "disease", the organization looks good on the outside but is sick on the inside. The first stage of decline is "hubris born of success," in other words a point where arrogance in leadership leads to strategic neglect. By allowing tyrants, sabateurs, and Machiavellianisn to run rampant, it has brought about it's own demise. A sad shame too, it was at one time a wonderful institution with the potential to be great with a wonderful amass of people that was employed there. My heart is heavy for St. Claire, a very preventable loss through a needed culture change the correct way!

Are you stupid? Why start rumors like this? That isn't going to happen.

I would'nt say that. I am sure that is what many people probably said when rumor was going around about Kings Daughters money problems and getting ready to let people go! Guess what? It happened not just once but twice, each time laying off hundreds of people. If they don't have the money they can't afford to keep all the workers it's simple math. So before calling anyone stupid you need to think about it!

I have put a lot of thought into the lay offs at Kings Daughters and, I think, come up with the reason. This applies to St. Claire also. These hospitals bought out private practices so that they could control where patients obtained their specialists. Also, they opened clinics in just about every small town around them. For instance, Kings Daughters has a satelite cline in South Shore. The idea was that patients who needed a specialist would be referred to the main hospital in Ashland. But if a patient in South Shore needed a specialist all they have to do is cross the bridge into Portsmouth and go to Southern Ohio Medical Center. That's a much shorter distance than driving to Ashland. So the plan backfired on them. Now they are stretch beyond their limit & having to cut costs, many times at the expense of the patients.

they have already cut out some jobs. several have lost their jobs already. they have cut out the raises for this year, cut back on the retirement benefits. yes, they are broke right now. its not a rumor. They are making big cut-backs. its because medicaid and medicare (especially medicaid) is not paying what is due to them. This has happened before though, just not quite this bad, but they will get thru it.

I would also like to see a source for this information. Obviously, on a site like Topix, rumors abound and I am not about to be a part of perpetuating more rumors. I would like to verify this information for myself through a credible source. Please provide a source that can be verified.

I agree regarding evidence based material, it certainly is the only way to drive a point home. My suggestion would be in lieu of the comments regarding the credibility of Topix, assist these misguided citizens and probable staff members and provide that evidence. If one is so dead set against a site that breeds rumors and ill-fated material, my suggestion would be to refrain from visiting this site and search for material that suites your intellectual interest. Perhaps McKinsey Quarterly or Kaiser Health might be of interest.

No raises will be given in 2012, at least not to anyone other than nursing departments, all jobs are being reconsidered except for nursing & doctors.. & the above comment is correct, they are trying to force patients to go to their specialists, that's why there will be no more PMC doctors at the (former) Morehead Clinic- they want all specialist in there, St Claire is run by greedy dumbasses much like the rest of Morehead, that's my opinion & Im posting it so come at me any way u want -

St Claire says they are broke, they are blaming it on non payers , Medicare / Medicaid changes & the new Health Care Act... Truth be told, they built one too many darn parking lots & houses to tear down for a parking spot- they are stupid & broke financially & mentally

St. Claire is a not for profit hospital. Did you know that any profit they post during the fiscal year is DONATED to the Catholic church? They buy up any and all property on Sun street then donate the remaining money.

I know for a fact that St.Claire has decided to get rid of over half of the home health workers. Not sure why it hasn't been in the papers or on the news but it's true.

I heard today that patients that need surgery for a problem that is not life threatening have been having to pay their co-pay to the hospital before surgery is done. I also heard that the layoffs at Kings Daughters is due to the fact they have been caught up in Medicare/Medicaid fraud but it was kept hush-hush in the papers. I can't see how that was done knowing how well reporters like to break news. Maybe some reporter needs to check it out.
