What's going to happen to all the loyal employees when the consolidation takes place? I don't see tons of earth being moved, and the reason for the main business of the hospital being at the South Campus was the facility's size: More OR suites, more rooms, larger ER. If we all move to the North, how is everyone going to fit, especially after redesignating part of it to the "Heart Center"?Probably the same way they handled 'right-sizing' before. So, you will see less agency personnel and the rest will come out of staff.
What will they do to accomidate the ER traffic? Rack 'em and Stack 'em. An ER is a losing proposition anyway. Why make them want to come? You want the insured for high billable procedures, not self-pay/no-pay ER visits. Hence, the Cardiac Center for Excellence .
