    Usually, when a business agency changes it’s name, it means they are either not doing too well financially, they are trying to escape from controversy, or they are trying to hide from something while attempting to deceive the public into thinking that something has changed…

    So, if you have a weak product, and are poorly perceived in the market, change the name! Business 101… Great idea, Matt!

    Since 75.42% of the SoHum public would not use and does not trust SHCHD with their medical needs 99% of the time, it does not really matter what the name of this mess is…

    So, get a “sports physical”, by all means.

    From my point of view, offering a “loss leader” usually will not pump up the business of a public agency, especially one which is so poorly operated in general.

    If you fall by Jerold Phelps Hospital, drop off a few comments, have a meeting with Matt Rees, and, hey, give them a large donation if you are so inclined! Your hospital needs public guidance, community input and participation, not a fully appointed board and business in secret…

    It’s tough to run these places, but the government is handing out more money these days to support these broken-down and pathetic little district hospitals.

    They can probably even afford Matt’s ridiculously oversized salary, for a few more weeks…

    I predict that nothing at all has changed at Jerold Phelps Hospital, besides the name.
