?Commentary . . . Reflections, Observations, and Expectations PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 30 December 2008 00:00
?    I have to say up front that I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions.  I don’t have anything against them but the practice of making such promises to myself simply because an arbitrary calendar date rolls around seems wrought with potential for me to disappoint myself.  I would prefer to set goals for myself rather than make promises to myself.
      I know that may be a distinction without a difference; in my twisted way of thinking a goal involves strategies whereas a resolution can lead to all sorts of self imposed guilt and disappointment as well as shortsighted rationalization.
    I do, however, see benefit in assessing progress toward goals and the setting of new goals at this time of year based on every changing conditions.  Some of these changed conditions have been of my own making while others have been totally out of my control.

?    In an abbreviated public meeting following an extended executive session, the Washington County Memorial Hospital (WCMH) Board of Directors received still more disappointing financial information.  According to Chief Financial Officer, Patricia Ellison, WCMH lost over $228,000 in the month of November and a total of $1.6 million, year-to-date.  The financial report was accepted and approved by the Board without question or discussion.
    In other business, the Board heard from WCMH Chief Executive Officer, Randy Lindauer, about efforts and progress in recruiting Family Practice Physicians and Pediatrics Physicians.  According to Lindauer, negotiations are going well with several doctors and it is expected that some sort of formal announcements are forthcoming after the first of the year.
    The Board also appoint three of its own members as representatives to a committee charged with negotiating a binding affiliation agreement with Saint Vincent Hospital of Indianapolis.  In addition to members of the WCMH Board, members of the Washington County Council and the Washington County Board of Commissioners will also serve on the negotiating committee.  Formal negotiations between the two hospitals are set to begin in January.
    With no further business to discuss, the Board adjourned until its next regularly scheduled meeting on January 29.
