Highland’s CEO Shuffle

Gee, when those Cambio Consultants say, “turnaround team” they really mean it. It’s costing taxpayers three million two hundred thousand dollars to get this consultant team into the Medical Center to turn things around. Once in the door they turned around and hired more consultants, consultants to consultants, to fix John George, the psychiatric hospital. Next, they turned around and fired the entire executive staff. They then noted that there was a vacuum of leadership at the Medical Center. In an attempt to be helpful, they offered to hire their own staff as executives for a meager $720,000 a year. So Cambio’s Susan Crutchfield replaced Efton Hall as Interim Chief Executive Officer. Ms. Crutchfield’s only visible act as Interim Chief Executive Officer was to put out a memo. The memo confirmed that consultants had run over a Highland employee in the parking lot and pointed out that police had not cited anyone. For the record the consultants were backing up; not turning around when the accident occurred. Then exactly one week after CEO Hall’s surprise dismissal, Cambio announced the new Permanent Interim Chief Executive Officer, Michael Burroughs. Three CEOs in one week, I don’t know about everyone else, but I don’t feel like I’m getting my 3 or 4 millions dollars worth.

Hey,

Isn't that about a million dollars per CEO?
Too much money and too many CEOs for not enough
results. This does not look right to me.

Hey, what about the Trustee President Shuffle? Does it even matter?

the BOT meets on 5/24, and once again the agenda leads off with an item to change Board officers, meaning that Huen is still trying to dump Weinreb as prez.

Does he have the votes this time? Do we care?
