I need a quick primer.....on the one hand Essent is criticized for being money grubbers, putting the almighty dollar ahead of patient care. Then, when the hospitals show losses, they are criticized for not making a profit.
I am quite sure you can reconcile these apparently opposing conclusions.
Guess they're doing a poor job of money-grubbing?
Actually, the two opinions are not mutually exclusive. A hospital can be fiscally responsible, without covertly spying on staff. It's all in the how.
It can monitor the orders so as to have justification for tests run, rather than rejections. It can set specific goals...rather than wavering in the wind...and invest its employees in the process.
Essent jumped in with both feet, not just discounting suggestions, but ignoring them entirely. "We're from Nashville, and you poor hicks ought to worship at our feet." Well, the feet have been proven to be of clay.
Obviously, strategic plans have to change, with the change in the top. But, beware boys and girls: the shifting sands might get you...or possibly the red ink....
