No wonder people don't do business in Quanah. That facility needs to be closed. Bad place for healthcare. All I keep hearing is about how poor the board and leadership is. Heard they hired an administrator that doesnt even have a college degree. Seriously? My family will not go there. This is a dangerous place.

Nothing will change, good people will leave, anybody notice the new crop of For Sale signs around Quanah? How many of them work at the hospital or school? Getting rid of Nail was only the beginning and there is no way in hell they will bring in a CEO from outside with some decent experience. The current board doesn't want anything better than what they have. Because if it was better, they couldn't be in charge. Mark my words, it will be closed in less than a year. Nail and his buddies bankrupted them. He's laughing all the way to the bank, and his board member buddies are riding with him.
sure enough

Deborah Brownlow.

Though I doubt she would leave a stable career path for the questionable future of the HCMH, I wish to heck we could get her on to the board of directors. Have we learned NOTHING?

If anyone on that board had an ounce of self respect or civic duty they would withdraw. No more yes (wo)men and no more people that don't understand or don't want to be bothered with the problems that Nail created.

That whole board need to step down, but they won't because then "outsiders" might have a voice in their coveted little kingdom of a town. Imagine what things could be like if the board was worth a [email protected] Look at the administrator they hired, no education or experience, but easy to manipulate, and the rest to the Nail management people are still there. If you're gonna clean house, you've got to take out all the garbage! I still say it'll be closed within a year!

Nail sent an email to his puppets/ gullible "friends" and said he will still be there for another 10-12 months. He is going to instruct carol lively on what to do via the phone on how to run the ship because she doesnt have the ability to think. His game is to bleed the hospital dry. If the hospital is still open in a few months, she will be dumped and maybe an outsider will take the job (unlikely).

Folks, the hospital is paying their employees on a month to month basis with a loan each month from FN Chilicothe. That well is about to run dry.

if scott nail would have been born in quanah and into the right group of people you would be defending him to the bitter end.in fact you would be telling him what a wonderful choice of chrome he chose for the lock and chain to lock the hospital doors because of bancruptcy foreclosure.

We would love to sign letters in the paper, but the paper won't print them (this has been tried before and failed), probably has something to do with how long the folks who run the paper have been in town and if they owe anything (money or otherwise) to the reigning royalty in Quanah. Topix stinks, but it's a free way to voice opinions in a place where only the opinion of a select few matters. I guess the other options are nailing flyers to telephone poles. Or wait, we could have them dropped from a plane over Quanah.

Any guesses about when the bank will call the note that's making paychecks clear the bank?
Oh man

you have got to be kidding me! Carol is the new administrator? She isn't even a good nurse! How the h*ll did this happen? Was she hand picked by Nail? She has absolutely NO qualifications! OMG

Think Deborah Brownlow would be great. She is very honest and people can't push her around. And for education, she has a Masters in business administration!

Yeah, I may post on topix under a screen name but only because folks around here don't take constructive criticism very well. For instance, try stating ur opinion on facebook and u will have people that u thought were ur friends write u off. Pathetic. I use topix because it gives me an opportunity to blow off steam without actually killing someone. LOL! It is a good place to air ur rage.

You know, it really irks me that Mr. Scott Nail receives the salary that he does. I doubt any job in Quanah is "worth" what we, as the hospital distict, pay him. Why? I don't really know how his salary was determined, but it was entirely ridiculous...and this is what we get in return?We are in a mess and he leaves...but he is going to be a consultant for several months. If he wants to leave, let him leave and save that money and use if for our hospital. We need our hospital for emergencies...but I agree with most of you..we don't need Scott Nail. By reading the QTC articles about the hospital board meetings, I had the perception that the hospital was making money...enough to pursue a nursing home, remodeling the ER...and look at the rehab center...lots of money was spent remodeling that building. About the home health, all I ever see is the employees outside smoking. I don't know when they do their work seeing patients. In my opinion, we have a mess, and I don't know how we are going to get out of it. Someone smarter than me is going to have to be in charge.
And, our city streets and water mains...both are such big jokes. People can tear up a car or lose a kid in some of the potholes in our little town. It is pathetic that we actually pay someone and give him a new pickup to ride around in when our streets are in such bad shape...and we never know when we are going to be without water...just saying my opinion. Quanah is my home and I love the people here; I just wish things could get straightened out. And what about all the buildings downtown that were bought by one man..thought we were going to have some "culture" brought here. Hasn't happened yet. Good idea, though. I would go.

i doubt that any of you just found out about nails salary or the shape the hospital is in.this mess isnt entirely nails fault because any one of us in his position would have manipulated the system to build a bigger egg for our kids future.the people to blame are the hospital board as well as the man in the mirror who voted for the current board.now that maybe your eyes have been open you need to understand that many others are manipulating the system as well.we have a sheriffs election and a commissioners election coming up so you can either make a well needed change or you can put your head back into the sand.

U r absolutely correct. We have all had a chance to make changes and the election turnouts are shameful. It is no wonder the good candidates will no longer toss their hat into the ring. We have let them down and just assumed that our vote wouldn't make any difference in the outcome. We have just buries our heads and backsides in the sand. LET'S MAKE CHANGES NOW AND GET OUR BUTTS OUT AND VOTE COME ELECTION DAY. I would like to continue to live here because this is my home. No more Scott Nails, no more Mance Nelsons, and no more bankrupt commissioners. Let's do it. Now is our chance.
no more
