Ok what is better spending money on doctors or building wings to the medical center? Lets use common sense.
A recent open records request reveals that the 2012 wage for the CEO (Vanek) is $61.90/hr; the assistant director, $50.25/hr. These hourly are up 3% from 2011.
The average number of inpatients (patients in the hospital) daily is 5.7. The Lavaca County Hospital District's hospital is a 25-bed facility.
For 2012, the employees of the district (137 FTE) received a 3% increase in group insurance. All insurance premiums for the employees is paid for by the district--I mean by the taxpayers of the district.
The district is in the process of rennovating and adding to the existing facility to the tune of $4,72,005.40. Did the district give the voters of the district an oppotunity to vote on this--NO! The costs will be paid via a loan--a kind of line-of-credit account. The interest rate of this account is unknown at this time.
Need to find a doctor that has his patients in mind instead of money. If the doctor is in it for the money why is he in Halletsville? I miss the old days of the doctor making a house visit. Think back! Do you remember those days........
I have always received substandard quality of care at the Lavaca County Medical Center. I believe what Dr. Powell has said. I know for a fact that hospital runs on skeleton crews because it is not cost effective to hire enough staff. The state really needs to look at that hospital!
