All of the HCA facilities were sold to a subsidary of HCA, I think the name was Life Point Medical. It has been over a month since it was announced in the paper but no other word regarding how or what changes, if any, will take place at these facilities.
No, the nurses are not bouncing between CAMC and the other facilities as much anymore.
Putnum General was in the group that was sold. This is the one in Teays Valley. Very small, very busy, and many staffing issues.
Ohio has several openings listed on many web sites. It does seem that pay and benefits get better just a short distance into Ohio. Some nurses were driving to facilities around Columbus, Cincinnati, and areas in between for per diem jobs, but I do not know if that will continue with the high price of gasoline.
There are several rumors that Thomas Memorial is in trouble and may freeze hiring and overtime as much as possible. Don't really know more.
