These were years ago and traveling anethesiologist were the problem. Can't blame Enloe for trying to cover the surgeries during the anethesiologist strike.

What a surprise!. There are more lawsuits against Enloe, Chico's only hospital than in all of California. I know of so many cases of mistreatment in the E.R,that many people go to Paradise Hospital where you are treated with respect,my family does. The doctors in the E.R,are rude and treat everyone like they are a drug addict.I know this from an inside source.If you have been seen there and treated this way,please write a letter to the new C.E.O. They actually want to know because they are trying to clean up the E.R.room and get rid of some of these doctors.There are a few good doctors there, but that does not make up for the bad ones. So please write to them if you have been mistreated,the pen is the only weapon we have to try and make a place we can go to when we are in need of medical treatment without having to go out of town.I'm sorry I had to write this, but it's the truth.

Obviously Enloe wanted to have anethesiologists for surgeries but appearently they wanted them so bad that any would do. Are there any other problems in the "traveling anethesiologist" past?
I guess the anethesiologists group that left Enloe did have valid issues and concerns with the existing management. Seems like there are many who won't work under our small town hospital's overbearing control.
Many Chico employers held a tight reign on working conditions and wages for years and still control much in unseen ways, requiring signature of 'no reasons required for termination' clause papers.

Not a strike. Inept management and willy-nilly "cost-cutting" by then CEO Dan Neumiester, enabled by an incompetent board or directors. A dark chapter in Enloe's history for sure.

Scary - Chaloub anesthetised a member of my family who luckily survived - you have to remember this whole episode occured because Neumeister fired Anesthesia Associates (no history of problems) against the advice of the Medical Staff to save money when Anesthesia Associates refused to have more doctors on call without increased payments to them to cover the cost. The Medical Staff then voted no confidence in Neumeister and got rid of him, I think since then he has also been kicked out of being CEO of a hospital in Reno.

Uh, yes you can blame Enloe. Especially when they anoint a jackass like Neumeister to cut costs with no regard whatsoever to patient care. Who are you shilling for Old Timer?

Sure enough, when I was in a car accident the ER was awful!! No visit from a doc at all until he was ready to tell me to go home--with two fractures in my back. He only noticed one....
The x-ray technician made me hang from a thing and when I was screaming that no, I wouldn't let go and just drop back down he became SO enraged. I made them get the patient advocate down there--who walked in saying he'd heard that I'd been causing problems. You'd better believe it, and he did listen and get them to at least move forward. But I literally was put in a cab for a ride to my house, which had steps before I could get in, with a two serious fractures in my back. Never again. Thanks for reminding me of the Seventh Day Adventist Hospital in Paradise. Next time I'll take a cab up the hill instead of an expensive ambulance ride to Enloe. Folks acted like I was faking it--or, as you said, on drugs. The accident was mid-afternoon on a weekday and I was on my way to school. Jerks.

Dan Nuemeister was fired from his CEO position at the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage. He used the same nasty tactics he used at Chico, to divide the medical staff. Dan Nuemiester knows no shame. A bully.

Correction. Dan Neumeister was not fired from Alaska Native Medical Center as stated above. His contract was not renewed after one year.

Why did Enloe buy into a partnership for mo ey with Skyway Surgey Center and divert patient procedures there?
