Dean Smith is right! He is not Dr Charles Jones! He is PA charles! His feelings are hurt and he is trying to hurt the hospital. His actions affect almost everyone in the county! People are employees, family or friends of employees, or patients at one time or another. We can't stand by and let him and a couple of cronies continue to wreck havoc!

Sounds like the board better get it together. There is a major breech in their circle. Looks like everything is coming full circle.


Posted 2:12 pm, 11/20/2019

Agree, but he is on two boards that are doing crap jobs.


Posted 12:45 pm, 11/20/2019

Smitty, you're the last person that needs to be on the board. You don't even have a clue how the board works


Posted 12:03 pm, 11/20/2019

He was not let go though was he? Why is it if a person retires it is because they are mad or forced to do so? My parents retired because they were old enough and wanted to. Most people are the same way. Nothing says after you retire you have to stop working completely either. I can about guarantee that none of the board members or Dr. Jones for that matter are posting on this site.

You clowns stop dead in your tracks----now look at how many employees have already left the hospital. Entire departments have lost all their employees and some even two times over and you arm chair quarter backs think more will leave because of a post or two claiming that more will leave. Wake up and look back.

You would have to be quite "touched" to believe Dr Jones would even have time to post on this site.

He is a disgruntled former employee. He wasn't happy when she brought in the ER company to staff the ER. Guess they didn't want to pay him like a doctor since he was just a PA. Then he was mad that his wife got replaced. So they "retired" but yet she keeps working there. I was in the ER the other day when she was working. None of this started until he got put on the board. Sounds like he has been talking bad ever since. So I would say that he is a disgruntled former employee that can't just "retire" and stay with the school board. We all know how "well" of a job they are doing. They are losing teachers all the time. Looks like a common denominator me to.

July, I can not see CB doing this either. I believe this is a disgruntled former employee that was let go. They can not get over it. From talking to current employees they think the same thing.

Knowmore I agree. But let's get back to old Deans post. No one thought you were Charles Jones. Dr. Jones would not do something like this to his hospital. He would not have all this negative posting to bash something his family has been apart of for generations, no matter the possible need for change. I think reason was meant to name Charles B Jones. It's time the board takes a few look at each other.


Posted 10:07 am, 11/20/2019

Splendiferous is right! Dean Smith needs to go! The hospital board needs to support the employees not try to get rid of them. What kind of board wants truly dedicated and skilled employees to leave the hospital and the ciunty? It is time to look at the board and the people posting negative comments and derogatory remarks aimed at specific employees. Some making these remarks ARE former employees! These people DO NOT need to be on the board of directors!

The only people here who are upset the old fraud is leaving are her little gang of followers because they know what's coming for them. The rest of us are thrilled. Getting her out of here will keep what good employees are left. The atmosphere is already so much better. No I'm not Charles Jones and I'm not on the board but I need to be. If I was on there the old fraud would of been gone long before now.


Posted 8:09 am, 11/20/2019

The way I hear it is that DeanSmith is going to run off some good employees. All because he got his feelings hurt. It's totally personal for him and the hospital will suffer for it. The hospital will lose some valuable people that are dedicated to the organization and yes it will move on. But can you replace the dedication of those employees with new ones that aren't as dedicated. DeanSmith is a problem and I'm afraid that the rest of the board will not realize that until it has lost valued employees.

20 plus resumes from employees from Ashe have been received at a neighboring facility in the last couple of weeks. Doesn't sound very stable to me.


Posted 9:13 pm, 11/19/2019

DeanSmith - Charles - You of all people should be supportive of hospital employees and not be sinking to the level of name calling. "The minute you think you have the right to belittle others because you think you are better than them is the same minute you have proven you're worse." You worked at the hospital for many years. The people you refer to as "toe lickers" are your co-workers - your neighbors - supposedly your friends. Why would you stoop to treat people in this manner? As a board member, you signed a confidentiality agreement. Do you think "anonymous" posting negates that agreement? Why don't you direct your time and efforts toward positive, supportive posts. Let the hospital employees know that their board members respect and appreciate them. Stop trying to tear everyone down. It does not make you look any better.

Yes, Dean is speaking the truth. Everyone is smiling, breathing, and looking forward to a less stressful working environment. The quiet on here speaks for itself.


Posted 12:51 pm, 11/19/2019

The mass evacuation of employees stopped as soon as we found out the old fraud was out of here. So things are MORE stable now that she's leaving. She and her followers created the unstable atmosphere.


Posted 3:31 pm, 11/18/2019

There is a large number of people trying to get out of Ashe. Not just her inner circle, but many others as well. Yes, you may have ousted a huge problem but created a very unstable environment. Hopefully it is only temporary.


Posted 10:54 am, 11/16/2019

After reading through this thread it is apparent that the problem at the hospital extends way past the CEO...


Posted 9:56 am, 11/16/2019

The old fraud was given the choice of resigning, retiring or being terminated. End of story. Let's just say I'm in a position to know. She never owned the house in jefferson landing. She rented it. All signs point to her being out of here by the middle of december. I can't wait for her little toe lickers to follow.

Does the board care
