Get rid of Pacer.!!!! Get a company that knows what they are doing.

We were better off with the old stinky hospital than the group that runs it now.

Love it Pacer agree's to Knox provisions,isn't that in the original agreement,yet Knox has not seen a dime.

How could Pacer sell 40% of hospital when they only leased.? Shouldn't the county have received the 1.2 mil instead of Pacer.

Under the lease agreement Pacer defaulted.

If the county cannot afford to keep up the hospital and pacer hasn't been keeping to the previous agreement, why can't they just sell it to a company that actually do something with it??

Pacer needs to go!!! This company owes so much money to Knox Co. they will never be able to pay it back, they have not paid taxes, rent, nothing but 1 days earnings out of a month!!!
How will the County know if all the money gets deposited into Commercial Bank? They already have proof of employees from the hospital and the Billing Co. writing blank checks and mailing them to Miami.
Why did it take the Judge Exec. so long to act when they robbed the hospital blind for 3 years?Why do they think they can trust Pacer now?
The county needs to sell it to someone because Pacer isn't capable and the county sure isn't.

I agree but Knox Cty had better do a search to make sure a new company is not owned by Pacer,since they have so many companies by different names.
I want to see our old employee's back at Knox Hospital,they were fired because they were not brown noser's as the company wanted.
Lets see if our county does anything to make Pacer bleed RED.

Aren't we also to receive $750,000 for them defaulting on not paying as they were suppost to.?

Looking forward to gettin a real ER room and staff.

How many companies does Pacer own now? I lost count after the 5th one:) which ones are not licensed to do business in the State of KY? I think that one was Pacer Health of KY.
I hope that Pacer and it's followers (brown nosers) gets the boot.
I know that a few of employees of the hospital and the Brick Mtn Billing were fired because they refused to brown nose and stood their ground. I want to be there when they are packing up their crap and heading out. I may offer to help them, then again, No I wouldn't!!!

Pacer is a large company that bailed the hospital out or have you people forgotten that! That is what Pacer Health does, rescues hospitals that are in trouble. The employees that work for Pacer and not KCH will not be going anywhere. As for brown nosing, if it gets you raises and favors then yes I will brown nose or whatever else I need to do to keep my job and get more money. No employees that were terminated or layed off will get to come back, those people have been replaced with employees that Pacer hired. A person needs to have goals and do what it takes to achieve those goals. You people need to get over it and join the real world!

Oh I agree Pacer bailed knox out-OUT of local jobs-local income-county money (which would pave our rds.)lots of greenback.
You brown nosers will go even if its takes a county vote for you to get the HELL out of Dodge.(dodge that)
J.M.does not own the the hospital nor does pacer We the citizens of KNOX COUNTY DO.!!!!
There may be a few posting here but beleive this there is power in numbers.
What about the state if necessary they will be involved.
A contract with knox county takes more than trying to fool us.It means crossing of the T and dotting of the I.
Pacer has screwed up big time ask any hillbillie when it comes time we all know where our kick A-- boots are.
WATCH AND SEE.

Dang I've heard this before. You keep your nose in someones a** for so long you might get blind sided. Why in the world would a person admit to being a brown noser? Do you know how gross that is?

Just so you know, not all the people that were laid off have been replaced. example: there is still no security! now tell me,how safe is that??
and I know of some others that have not been replaced.

Why were some laid off and replaced. I thought if a person gets laid off, a new person couldn't be hired to replace them. Or is one of things were Pacer makes its own laws and hopes that know one complaines?

A person who has been laid off should be called back if that position is reinstated. I doubt if anyone would complain since the working environment at the hospital and BMB is so horrible. Yes, this is an example of how Pacer Health ignores the law.

They can change the name of the title and its totally legal! You people are envious and jealous that we are moving up the coorperate ladder. If we want an employee gone then they are gone, its called at will employment. For those who are challenging Pacer's decisions, you won't win so give it up. The owner is a lawyer for you idiots that don't know.

The school he graduated from, who he voted for in the presidental election, Why he got "booed" at a miami football game, why his many business's failed and his tax evasions scams. So yes us "idiots" do know, how much do you actually know Brown Noser? Are they paying you to stay on topics on company time? You are a Loser!!!

Who are you to call any of us idiots,we know more of whats going on than you think.

At the same time you brown nose rs some times can't even go to the bank your check will not clear.
That is what brown nose rs get. work sucking up to some one and no pay for maybe 3-4 weeks.Then low and behold guess what your not brown nosing enough you lose your job.Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
The only job security you have is your nose.

Time will tell. Do you plan on moving from Knox County when you have no job to go to at Pacer.?
Florida or New Jersey. Your accent may not fit in Idiots.
