Sure. And, for some reason, the news coverage hasn't been too interested until now.

Weak, pathetic, but funny. Please do cotinue to post...

Seems you're implying that the people who have resigned from Murray County over the last year were doing so to avoid the 'disgrace of being fired'?

People also resign to avoid the disgrace of being fired.

You're a joke, but hey, whatever it takes to get you through the night.

A resignation is voluntary. People resign from positions all the time, when they have a better job, when they have health concerns, or when they've decided to move on.

Our culture and media rarely leans toward support of a CEO or Corporate leader. Once an accusation has been made it's guilty until proven innocent.

The lawsuit against MCMC is from a former employee who didn't like the fact that his work was questioned. He didn't lose his job and wasn't forced out, he also resigned (voluntarily), and now works for Avera. It sure is interesting that one of the main agendas that his supporters are pushing for is Avera purchasing the hospital.

How come this article didn't mention the overwhelming support Snow was getting?

If you had any reading comprehension, someone was given the chance to resign otherwise the ax was coming. Being given the opportunity to save face, or get the ax, it's all the same thing.

I just wonder who it is...

How was my comment biased? I stated facts.

MCMC has been an over-achiever for years, receiving national awards and consistently ranking among the top facilities in its category. I find it interesting that the people crying so loudly to 'Take back MCMC' are the ones causing the most long term damage to it's reputation.

Many patients that are not involved in controversy still love MCMC and greatly appreciate the care they receive from the amazing staff there.

Snow DID voluntarily give up a position with Sanford in order to become a Murray County employee.

There have been allegations online that he is corrupt and is trying to run the hospital into the ground, or sell for which there is absolutely no evidence to support.

Also, if you took the time to read the article headline you would have realized that no one is 'getting the ax'.

Gee, thanks for that completely unbiased post.

By the way, you couldn't possibly tell us who's getting the ax, could you? If it's Snow, is it for all those reasons you mentioned???

These attacks on MCMC leadership have gotten completely out of hand.

Much of Slayton isn't aware of the facts and are bandwagoning onto a witch hunt started by a few personal friends of former MCMC employees. Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation.

1. The hospital is not going broke. It's not unusual for a period of loss while investing in the future. Very normal for a critical access hospital. Because of Snow's leadership, the overall annual revenue hit over 17M in 2012. That's 3M more than when he started! 2.5M in add'l salaries! Cant't chalk that up to inflation!

2. We're only hearing about the bad No one is communicating all the great reports that come from patients. The ones that are grateful for all the new services, and the new facility that Snow pushed to build.

3. The hospital is not selling to Avera or Sanford. Snow pushed hard to keep MCMC independent, going so far as switching from Sanford payroll to become a Murray County Employee.
