Oops. Not the Times Standard, but North Coast Journal. Thanks to the NCJ for reporting what we need to know about our local hospital.
Pooh on Times Standard for being in the pocket of the Corporate Sisters and not being their for your public. Not a word about any of this.
Congratulations to Times Standard for finally reporting the negative news about St. Joseph's hospital. I was wondering what level of conspiracy was going on.
St. Joseph is a part of a large out-of-Humboldt religious megacorporation. Patients are units and products, and the workers are cogs in the big machine. They pay no local taxes, siphon off profits for the Orange County headquarters, and then toss some crumbs locally to the groups that serve them.
Take the easy drive to Redding, Santa Rosa, or Davis for health care from a busier center with more equipment, experience, and priority for patients. Even Mad River is a more sensible/less expensive choice with the same doctors, and the dollars stay local.
