    So what is your point? St. Frannie's has a new CEO. There was nothing special or unusual in the article you cited.

    (St. Frannie's School of Nursing grad, here. Those nuns were always tight with a buck, and tough as nails.)
    Perhaps there is a point I missed in my "just woke up" fog, but I don't get it oramar.

    Could you help us out?

    Every time a hospital in this area gets a new CEO the post-gazette runs an article saying what a great guy or gal this person happens to be. In somecases these people actually do turn out to be good at what they do. There has has been a few cases where some of them have turned out to be bad CEOs or out and out crooks. Just ask anyone who has worked for AGH in past ten years. This person was hired to get this institution out of financial trouble. There will be changes made, no doubt about it. My friends and family who work at St Francis are currently quite happy with their jobs. I just hope they will continue to be happy even with the inevitable changes. The point is, good luck you will need it.

    I have read a lot of your post thisnurse, tried to guess where you work from what you describe. Truth is it sounds like all the places I have ever been.

    The hospital where I work made itself into a health system and took over 3 other hospitals several years ago. Morale at the other 3 was good until then. They closed one (after swearing they wouldn't) and took the low morale personnel practices they used at my facility and ruined good morale at the other 2 hospitals. What is it, the more money you make a year the less common sense you have? Guess they never heard that you get more with honey than vinegar.
    Hope the changes are positive for those at the facility Oramar!
