I wouldn't go there and my last surgery was just across the bridge with a local surgeon.

To many stories going around to know what's true or not. But I do know that 2 departments, housekeeping and laundry will have changes. First they were told they would no longer be employees by omhs. Their jobs would be contracted out by a company in Louisville. They will not have a laundry department. It will be shipped in daily. The employees will be offered other positions. After years of service, they may or may not have a full time position. I have known several that in the last 6show months have lost their jobs. Many have been there 102 plus years. To cut those that have topped out on benefits, just to save a buck. One of the big wheels, Joe Taylor, is behind most if this. They do not care about the people. Its all about the buck. The day before it opens, I hope a tornado comes and blows it in the next county ....

That's people that has been there 10 plus years. Have lost their jobs. As for mr barber, true he is 68. But he made a great deal of money getting this started and his wife left months ago to find a new house to move. There has been way to much over budget spent, and it will cost them in the future. Or should I say, cost us.......

That would be super smart for a tornado to come and have nowhere to treat the injured. Sounds like u care tons about people yourself. Nobody has lost their job. At the very most they would be put on priority placement and temp in the HR office until a suitable position is found. I know this because it happened to me. You dont just get laid off at the hospital and for that matter to get fired takes some real effort. Some were offered early retirement and accepted. There us no laundry department at the new location because of the cost and the chemicals that go into the ground much like you have at a dry cleaners.
you people are funny

And the windows have had to be fixed or replaced multiple times because of it. If you think you know something is fine. But don't call people idiots when you don't know for a fact!
the hospital is not sinking. If you had any idea how much went into making sure 400% that its wouldn't budge you would know. It's virtually impossible for it to sink the way they designed the footings. The ground would basically have to become liquid and f that happens the hospital sinking will be the least of our worries. You people are worse than an old ladies sewing circle.

Yes, I indeed find it an odd time to leave. Yes, he is well into retirement age, but for a project that was his brainchild from start to finish, and that is this close to completion, it just seems to be a very odd time to leave. Kinda like running 475 miles of a 500 mile race and then packing it in. You'd think he'd have a personal interest in seeing it over the finish line.

It was hardly HIS brainchild. He's a moron and wouldn't know where to begin in any construction practices.

They built the hospital on wet sand so it's not hard to believe there are foundation issues.

Wonder why the cover up from our lack rag newspaper

That's not a very nice thing to say. 102 years seems a little exaggerated.

It's funny how they pushed the old housekeeping and laundry bosses out that had been there 15 and 20+ years to bring in some wack a** contractors out they have shorted their housekeepers out so much that they've overloaded them and they are quitting and retiring seems all to suspicious to me it is all about the money so the hospital won't have to pay the insurance and benefits if this contracted company takes over housekeeping. As for where they came from it isn't Louisville it was Colorado and joe Taylor was behind this whole mess. Cutting housekeeping makes the hospital look horrible next time u go in there look closer to how many cob webs are in that mf

no actually they didn't. You are just showing you lack of knowledge (no offense) on the subject. The footings aren't even what stabilizes the hospital walls. It's built on basically 4000 grout filled pylons that are over 200 ft deep each. Which is why I said the ground could turn to mush and it still really wouldn't even effect the stability. Think of it as almost like an oil rig in the ocean, you know how they are on big stilt looking pylons? That's basically like the new hospital except its not ocean water, it's wet loose sandstone. You are correct it's basically built on wet sand, however that sand is in no way supporting any of the load.

It was his brainchild to have a new hospital BUILT - not to actually design and build it himself. Are you the designated defend-the-hospital person on this site??

Um its the laundry that will be shipped in...linens gowns etc. there will still be plenty of housekeepers to do cleaning. Cob webs are the least of the problem with the old building.

Alicia, either u work there and don't care, or u don't know crap. They will get rid of u on a dime. I was an employee at the old mercy hospital. When they merged I had worked there 18 years. I and many others were offered crap. I was offered a part time job. Just so those SOB 's.... didn't have to pay my benefits. Many were treated like crap after spending half our lives there. If they can save a dime they will find a way to get rid of u. Ask almost any one that worked at the real MERCY HOSPITAL. They will tell u what u want to hear til its time for u to go....
