I recently received information regarding KDMC from a pretty reliable resouce.(1) St. Joseph Hospital of Lexington is looking to buy KDMC,(2) KDMC is in so much trouble with the Medicare/Medicaid fraud (stemming from all those heart caths, etc)that they are struggling financially and the fallout from this has still not reached the bottom,(3) Fred Jackson is getting divorced and has already purchased another home in another state,(4) Dr. Paulus is getting divorced and may be going back to Texas Heart Institute,(5) more layoffs at the end of this month or possibly first of August. Has anyone else heard of these?
I have heard very much the same as you regarding 1 & 2. I also heard layoffs tomorrow. A friend was admitted today. He was put on a floor inappropriate for the reason he was admitted. When he asked why, they said they were filling every bed on the floor and going up a level at a time.

Just one of the many clerical employees at KDMC. Scared to go to work tomorrow. Rumors and whispers are that something big is happening tomorrow. Watch the news for updates...... The recent layoffs took a lot of clerical jobs and that is why now it takes so long to get a live person on the phone when you call....

When Fred took over as CEO, KDMC had 1,500 employees and was no where near the Medical Center that it is today. Today, there are 4,000 employees AFTER the lay offs. So fire a guy that has guided the creation of 2,500 jobs??? Hmm, most of the time that will get you re-elected... just saying.
Yeah you'd have to have 4000 people to manage and maintain that much realestate. Pretty buildings does not equal good care. How about asking the patients about their care? Or ask the understaffed overworked people who still work there this week how they feel the care they're able to provide? Is KDMC in the realestate and architectural business... or are they into saving lives and making our community healthy with good quality care??? Send Fred Jackson down the road talkin to himself...

A liaison last week and a person that worked in the health foundation today. Some employees were told they were looking at eliminating more in the future. Maybe a few at a time to not raise so much attention.

If paulus is leaving you know he is guilty as he'll for doing too many unneccessary procedures. Considering he endowed enough to get a building named after him, I he is leaving you know they are in deep shit.
Fred's house has been on the market for at least two years.
Paulus is going no where not to Texas and by the way he is from Vermont not Texas.He has saved many lives in this area and for people to turn on a man who helped build that hospital and bring those jobs in shame on you

I too am an employee of KDMC and have heard from a security guard himself that all of the security staff has to report to work tomorrow. Even those scheduled off. That tells us something right there. In a few hours we will know for sure.

I worked for KDMC for many years and finally left for a job that values their employees. KDMC is grasping at straws. While I was still there a few months ago, people were hired to come in and go through our charts/billing to see if we were missing anything that we could be billing for. I had to set down with one of those people and discuss what we bill for so they could determine if there was anything more I could charge patients/insurance companies for. I've never agreed with that. Many of those patients have to pay 20% of all those charges. I never tried to bill for any and everything because it's just wrong and KDMC can and should fold rather than do that to unsuspecting patients.
