Which leadership team? The one Ray deems "senior leadership". That would include Allyson Williams, Mazie Whalen, Alphe Wells, and Florence Jones. It's time to clean house. And if you want to scrutinize salaries, check theirs out.
Additionally, during Ray's tenure there have been numerous high dollar jobs created which amount to nothing. They are definitely non-revenue generating jobs. Another place we need to check the books! I know for a fact that reports concerning finances change with the wind. One minute you might be told you are ok with your volume and then poof you are a losing player for DRMC and you no longer have a job.
The "senior leadership" team is comprised of Ray's personally hand-picked "yes-men/women". All of the above mentioned "leaders" make well over six figures and have from 4 to 14 people below them to do the actual work defined in their job descriptions.
Other than Allyson Williams, all are black... a "token" pre-requisite mandated by board members. Undoubtedly, the biggest joke among these team members is Alphe Wells, Human Resources Director. From the beginning, he has had no respect from DRMC employees or the community at large as a professional.
Other than being black, Alphe Wells is completely unqualified for his position. He is one of the "coke-sipping" club members who spends each day keeping Ray informed of other employee's transgressions via his "Black-berry". It is almost impossible to hear the name "Alphe" included in a sentence that does not also include the word, "joke".
Allyson Williams is an intelligent woman, but a power monger. She wants Ray's job so bad she can taste it. Allyson's problem is that as a "bedfellow" of Ray, she has lost all respectability and trust. She has been "bought and paid for" by Ray and thus her career in Greenville has ended.
Mazie Whalen and Florence Jones... both are very knowledgeable and respected registered nurses who have simply risen to the level of their incompetence. A good nurse does not a leader make! Like all members of the "senior leadership" team, their allegiance has been swayed by money. Given a six figure income, even the Devil becomes defensible!
No, Ray is not alone in his unyielding attempt to maintain power at any cost... he has several "team" members who will surely tumble when he falls. None will be missed and we shall once again have the opportunity to have quality health care in Greenville. We need to make it happen!
