TLC Network: Interim choice is smart move

December 2, 2013

In the early 1990s, many associated with WCA Hospital in Jamestown were none too pleased when John Galati left the organization. At that time, WCA was going through major administrative changes....

CEO change, changes noting if the same board that got LSH in this fix remains together "noting changes if noting changes " CEO change is just window dressing, till present board can find a way to complete the plan to close, in the mean time false rumors of chapter 11, new buyer etc. will be circulated, can you say "smoke screen" we though JD was smart enough to see this, then again maybe not

the current bod answers to hamot. look at the members and advisers. or you can't, lerhsny took down their web site. the 4 advisers are hamot employees. rhoads (we all know him), steve danch (cfo of hamot), james firorenzo (president of hamot), and val jackson (director of regional buisness development of hamot). lerhsny did not want Mr Galiti but are allowing it because they believe it is too late. they are currently trying to move the closing date up. everyone needs to contact the state doh, state attorney general and all of our elected officials

The current BoD is responsible for Lakeshore's financial difficulties, period. They hired and kept the CEO responsible for the billing issues at Lakeshore, which is and was their largest issue, until it was too late. They quite simply weren't getting paid properly or timely for services rendered.

Replacing the entire Bd of Directors, as they are the ones ultimately responsible for the current poor operating situation and financials, is the only move which will change the course of the TLC situation. The fact the same cast of characters -- the Board -- chose the interim CEO doesnt change a thing.

It keeps it the same: poor.

Mr Borrello upped his offer to 15 million which was also rejected by lersny. because of the non-compete clause? probably. Mr Borrellos' intentions are to keep as many services as possible operating but we have to get out from under lerhsny to do that because they don't want that at all. they want it closed to increase brook's buisness as well as hamots. they are too blind to see that isn't happening no matter the outcome of all this. i for one will never step foot in brooks again non will my family.

One question: where is LERHSNY on the purchase offer by Anthony Borrello? It would appear when one sorts through the BS coming from Mr. Galati and everyone else involved that they aren't considering any such offer. From Day 1 of this fiasco there has been talk of a "non-compete" clause. Quite simply, if the owners of Lakeshore sell it, they have no further concerns as to what happens to it or what it becomes or how it's run, do they? I haven't seen one remark from anyone associated with the management of Lakeshore that would even hint at anything resembling a regular hospital existing when this is all said and done.
