Honestly and reasonably, would it have been too much to ask of our hosital board members and administration to concentrate their search and insist on a FEMALE CFO for our hospital in order to show that they are not going to continue ruling and dominating the philosophy and environment and decision making to the same old kind of good ol boy management that our hospital has had for the past 50 years; and could they possibly look for a female CFO who is a CPA with an MBA and some true hospital CFO experience. And could they maybe insist on someone with integrity, honesty, morals, family values, high ethical standards, fairness, and all of the traits someone responsible in any way for managing a publicly owned community asset as important to us as our hospital, and that spends all of those tens of millions and collects all of those tens of millions of dollars each year of OUR money; and could they insist this person actually live and display and be true in all of these qualities in their PERSONAL lives, as well as their PROFESSIONAL lives; because that would be a real refreshing change from the past management decisions in our hospital, and would show that Mr. Schauer is serious about changing it and making improvments in our reputation and his management style. And where are the female board members too, other than the infrequent physician who the are FORCED to rotate onto the board.

Agree! Would be at least a beginning on the part of board and administration to show progress in improving hospital and its reputation. Someone who could not be manipulated or charmed or tempted or compromised by inappropriate behavior. For God's sake don't hire anyone connected to anyone in this area within 500 miles; particularly if they were recommended by ANYONE at PVH or even remotely associated.

So who is it? Thorough background check? Male or female? Meets publics expectations for personal and professional character traits and history of behavior and integrity; as well as professional qualifications? This is OUR hospital. We own it. You work for us. Meet our expectations and needs. For a change. Take our suggestions on the traits these employees and hospital "LEADERS" should demonstrate in their personal and professional lives. Would you hire a fox to guard a henhouse? Or a rooster for that matter: either of them; no matter how qualified or well equipped to actually do the job? Same principal and analogy. Who and what people are personally and the traits and behaviors in their personal lives they exhibit has very direct bearing on the confidence and trust they are worthy of in their professional lives and performance. PVH. has Provence that point countless times. The board members are the representatives of the people owning PVH. The PUBLIC. The Community Hospital. You all work for us; board andxadministration alike. It is OUR hospital and not yours. You need to start acting accordingly.

This is actually not true. PVH is a nonprofit hospital which operates as any nonprofit organization does. The general public do not have a say in the decision-making processes of the hospital, its governing board, or its administration. The "community hospital" language refers to PVH's target population, the Mason County/Point Pleasant community. This does not imply a democracy in the sense that members of the community are somehow served by "representatives of the people." The general public does not "own" PVH. Rather, the relationship is more one of service provider and at-will client (in non-emergency situations) than one of a principal-agent nature. If citizens are unhappy with PVH, they have the option of seeking healthcare elsewhere, just as they have the option of shopping at Target if they loathe Wal-Mart. Most insurance plans allow for this.

To be clear, I do not serve on the PVH board or have any knowledge of the workings and dealings of the board or administration. I am simply commenting from the perspective of one who is very familiar with the operations of nonprofit organizations, their structures, and nonprofit tax codes. I don't even live in Point Pleasant. I live 1,400 miles away. While I do have professional opinions on the hiring of healthcare administrators, particularly within nonprofit community health systems, I'll keep those to myself and simply wish you all the best with PVH.

This should read: "The general public does not have a say..."

Sorry for the typo.

Tammy's ex posted this. Aahhhhh Max at it again I see. He wants you to believe all of this. He wants anyone with an I.Q. over 70 to think that the board members and the administrators really believe they don't answer to the public and are not owned by us ( the public). He wants you to think that they believe all of the above and that they are thumbing their noses at the community that owns PVH and that they work for. He wants you to think that they believe they can do whatever they want however they want and that they believe they annswer to no one and definitely not the citizens of Mason. County and the surrounding area. He wants you to believe all of it. If you believe all of the above then you believe the board and management can treat PVH like THEY own it.

So let us get this straight. Are you trying to say that our Community-owned not-for-profit hospital that collects and spends over Seventy-Million-Dollars a year in our tax dollars from Medicare and Medicaid and other publicly funded entitlement programs; paid by patients from our community-is NOT publicly or community-owned? Is that what you are trying to tell us? PVH has NO public oversight of how all of these millions of dollars is spent EVERY year?

Who can argue with any of this? TRUST is the most important trait. Millions of dollars spent by these people every month of publicly owned money.TRUST. An impeccable record and history and background in their personal and professional lives of TRUST. If our hospital Board and CEO cannot agree and comply with this; then we have HUGE problems at PVH. TRUST and unimpeachable character and integrity. Not negotiable.

PRAISE THE LORD; Someone is talking about integrity and trust and honesty at PVH. You are exactly right to demand it as part of their personal lives too. If someone is a liar or a cheater or a manipulator and phony and a scammer and selfish opportunist in their personal life; they will not change into some other schizophrenic other person magically when they walk through the doors of PVH to go to work.
