So I can rest at ease that I will be cared for at the hospital should I need it?

I gotcha ;)

Can board members talk about private meetings? Something isn't adding up. Are you saying that it really isn't anonymous? I just want to know more about the hospital that I am choosing to use for my health care. If there is so much unsettled ness then maybe the staff are distracted by all of it and when I need care they won't provide me with good care. I'm lost?

They have been told in private conversations with employees!

It just seems like a lot of back handed talking. From what I had heard the board seemed pretty happy with her until this thread started bashing her. It all looks like the board listened to a anonymous thread and didn't want the bad publicity from it. But from reading the thread it looks like some of the unhappy board members are on here. How else would they have all this detail.

It has not been this site alone that former and current employees have expressed their concerns and frustration with the CEO. There have been conversations with board members, doctors and supervisors of AMH, and senior staff of Novant. This site has been used to inform the public of what has been occurring and hopefully to find strength in numbers. You, the public have the right to know what is happening in your hospital and to be a part of making a change for the better. If you don't or have never worked there you cannot see how it is being managed and maintained but the employees have been honest and straight forward enough to speak the truth and allow everyone to know the situation. Thank you to every person who had a hand in making this change, whether it be employees, board members, patients, or whomever. It was a just call.

From what everyone on here is saying it sounds like the board would choose to listen to a anonymous site and get rid of the CEO. If the board had issues with her before this thread started why wouldn't they come and say it. Instead of relying on the anonymous thread to do it. You all take the credit, but what credit is an anonymous site? Sounds like a crappy board that needs to be looked at. I haven't been in the county long but I have had to use the hospital several times. Sure not every experience is good but where I come from the bigger hospitals are great either. With that said, I have had good care at the hospital, especially in the ER.

She should have been fired like she has done to so many others, but at least there is a reason for her being fired unlike some of the others she fired, just because she didn't like them.

I thought the board has to sign confidentiality agreements. Are they allowed to discuss what happens in the board meetings?


Posted 9:20 am, 10/16/2019

Finnie, just admit it, you really don't know what is going down.
Also you have no clue about what the board can do.Go ahead ask
one of the members .****, Novant was just as glad
to get rid of her.

In this one, there are several of you


Posted 9:05 am, 10/16/2019

In almost any group discussion there is always a small minority who refuse to accept their irrelevance to the conversation at hand.

You're proving to be about as smart as most Carolina fans. The ceo doesn't work for the board. So the board can't fire the ceo or make the ceo do anything.


Posted 6:10 am, 10/16/2019

The board talked about firing her but there was a few who didn't want to be that confrontational. So they decided to give her the choice of how she was going to leave. This so-called retirement announcement is so she can get out without being publicly disgraced. But that ain't gonna happen. I'm gonna use Laura's favorite line - HERE'S THE DEAL. Everybody is gonna know she isn't leaving On her own. We will see to that. The board told the old fraud to pack up. Won't be long until the followers get the same treatment. Somebody wake the CNO up and tell her to make sure her resume is current.


Posted 5:34 am, 10/16/2019

This was not her choice. The board made this decision after months of investigations.Novant was informed of their decision that Her services were no longer needed. The board made 2 mistakes though, not doing it a long time ago and not outright firing her.


Posted 5:16 am, 10/16/2019

The old fraud is not leaving because she chose to. The board finally realized what was going on and told her she was out. She could resign, she could announce her retirement or she could get fired. To save face she chose retirement. Adios, Laura!! We won't miss you! Your little gang of followers will be next.


Posted 9:29 pm, 10/15/2019

I find it funny when someone that people have beef with announce their retirement it automatically means they are being ran off. It could mean that they have decided to retire and it is on their own accord. 👀🤷"♀️

Go home now

The CFO should be fired. The CNO should be fired. Terrible boss and is not knowledable about anything healthcare related
The infectious control fat brown tooth woman should be fired.
Party time is now over!

Those who have the proper insight into the last seven years all wish that the problem had been addressed sooner. But it's being addressed now. The Trustees (most of them, anyway) as well as Novant are coming to terms with what has been occurring and I believe you'll see both parties more engaged at least in the short term. This should help some of the turnover. Most of the Trustees want to see the hospital be the best it can, although the obstacles mentioned previously are going to be quite difficult to overcome.

jack rip her

The board is about as useless as tits on a boar hog. Does that help you people understand?
