Making Like a Tree....2/16


Funny, as it was pointed out to me numerous times, how one day the Duck is being 'frog marched' to the door, with Essent saying the coup d'├ętat was now...and the next day, he has a month to pack his pencils....

Now....


To ensure a smooth transition of the hospital’s leadership, Dux will remain at PRMC until Oct. 1. At that time, current chief operating officer Bill Porter will assume the position of interim CEO.
...and then....


“He is telling his employees now,” Fox told The Paris News shortly before 10 a.m. today.

Bill Porter, PRMC’s current chief operating officer, will begin serving as interim CEO immediately.
Whoever writes the releases ought to learn the meaning and value of consistency.... Of course we hicks can't remember one day to the next, so why bother???
My question would be: Why, with all that time and effort to build a reputation in health care would a CEO of a hospital bail? ...and for an undisclosed endeavor???

Well, looks like Duckboy will be adding to his ever-expanding resume. He's just like the rest of the Essent hacks- never stay long in any one place.

If you expect me to weep for his departure, don't hold your breath...

What- you dare question the tactics of Essent Healthcare? How dare you- you, you, that's what you are!!

(it's a joke, folks- doesn't bother me a bit that Duck is flying south for the winter- or wherever his kind goes........long as he isn't here. But I'm just a dumb employee-what do I know?)

Here's Duckboy's latest update:

Sez he's available as an interim CEO. Hmm, sounds like locum tenens or agency work. Well, why not- with the high number of temp nurses and physicians at PRMC, that seems to fit his MO.

I pray to God he never comes here, even as a tourist.
