For all the crap Myers had to deal with when he took over at Hamilton, he turned the bottom line around, improved quality and service. He signed Blue Cross, CIGNA, Aetna and has been upgrading facilities and equipment. We have been recruiting some great new docs and to my knowledge I haven't seen anyone thank the guy for all the crap he was put thru to get us here. No-one is perfect but yuh gotta admit with Erlanger, Hutcheson, Memorial having all the problems they've had we're doing pretty dang good.

Oh yeah, he's your savior. Keep believing in him right up to the point he burns you. That guy is poison and will most likely end up wearing an orange jumpsuit.

I agree that some of the layoffs are all about the almighty $$$$ These GREEDY GRINCHES do not care about the "awesome" nurses who treat their patients like their own families. Water seeks its own level!!! These decisions made by those in power have chosen to keep the employees who are rude,disspassionate and don't care who gets hurt as long as they save a dollar!! It is a sad time in the Healthcare Industry!!
