Current Employee notes...
Yes, you should have seen them all, the DRMC Executive suite, last night at Harlowes casino, wining and dining the doctors. It made me sick to look at them.
The biggest Baptist of them all, Sunday school teacher Ray Ray drinking in the casino at a DRMC sponsored event. What happened to the county not being allowed to pay for alcohol?
How does the hospital have the money to pay for a fancy shindig at Harlowes yesterday, when today they made us send staff home because of low census "flexing"?
Former Employee offers:
Allison Williams is simply a bitch. At least Florence has a few friends... Allison has none!
Alphe Wells is the biggest joke of all. He was hired as a token black at the board's direction. He ran off all of the competent staff he inherited from KD and spends his days polishing his fingernails and conversing with Ray via his blackberry.
Alphe is probably the biggest stooge Ray ever hired. He is not only incompetent, but he presents himself as a complete buffoon who knows nothing about human resources.
I agree with the writer above that Courtney Phillips is the only one with any scruples; however, Ray's power to corrupt is mighty strong! Woody White fled Greenville when he finally saw the depth of Ray's corruption and decided he wouldn't look good in stripes!
The physicians practice mess is real! I have friends who are knowledgeable of its finances and DPP is in deep trouble! Ray Humphreys is going to spend his way out of Greenville. Everything he owns is for sale including his house and hunting club membership. He will flee Greenville one day like a scalded dog and we will be left to clean up his mess... just like in Hattiesburg!
I vote we kick his ass out of here before he bankrupts DRMC and leaves the Delta with no viable healthcare. The entire administration needs to go... they are all Ray's peons who have no other interest than to protect their "outrageous" incomes!
Greenville needs to get off their asses and demand quality healthcare for the delta. DRMC is one of the biggest disgraces in the Delta! 4 million dollar ad campaign?... what a waste! It is like dressing a pig...it may be more pleasing to the eye, but at the end of the day, it is still a pig!
Sleeping Giant adds:
The sad part is, Ray does not realize the incompetence of the so called "administrators" he has surrounded himself with. Nor does he care to notice. It does not matter to him because he is not held accountable nor challenged.
As for DPP, Alyson Williams is the head idiot in charge. DPP has lost millions over the past several years. Physicians are employed at three times the national average. If exposed, these extreme overpayments would definitely border on Stark and Anti-Kickback law violations. These physicians have very little incentive to perform since most of there salaries are guaranteed.
Some people have business sense but Alyson Williams has none. As for the wine and dine, I am not surprised. As for religion, it is sad in business when religion is invoked to diminish the possibility of a decision being questioned.
How many times have we heard the announcement of stupid decision begin with, "Well, I have done a lot of praying about this and.......!" I believe God endowed some with the intelligence to make good business decisions without having to ask. I know Ray Humphreys and Alyson William are not of these.
To "sleeping Giant" Ditto, Ditto, Ditto..... were you and I at the same meeting or do these people always say- well I have prayed about this and it would be in the best interest in the hospital if we replaced your job with someone less competent-mmmmm- always beware of the wolf in sheep's clothing.....
Ray Humphreys in a casino... surely NOT... an upstanding deacon of the Baptist Church drinking and gambling in a den of inequity? Perhaps Ray had prayed about it and been directed to go forth and save the fallen souls of these misguided MDs? Huummm?
Ordinarily, I would suggest that the "Boards" be notified; however, I would bet that they were also present at the county sponsored shin-dig, lapping up the spoils of being "bought and paid for".
Lately, I have heard a great deal about the woes of Delta Physicians Practice. It seems that this LLC is where Ray hides much of the massive debt incurred through the outrageous salaries he has guaranteed physicians to come to Greenville.
These physicians get paid the same whether they are productive or not; while, the clinical and nonclinical staff of DRMC are sent home daily due to low census. Periods of low census are a reality in all health care settings and can be adjusted for through proactive, sound fiscal planning.
However, sending low paid workers home to offset the six figure incomes of MDs and Administrators is simply not good practice, not to mention a real morale-buster! It is no wonder their employees are fleeing by the day.
A successful, productive hospital has to have competent leadership and satisfied employees. DRMC has neither! I know of two types of employees at DRMC: those who dred going to their jobs and are vocal about it; and those who dred going to their jobs and are silenced by fear and intimidation from administration. It is sad that anyone has to work in a place they despise.
Like a former mafia leader, Ray's nickname should be "Teflon Ray" because nothing ever sticks to him. His "protective coating" is graft, corruption and bribery. As an added defense, Ray uses God's words and "prayer" to justify his self-serving deeds.
I predict that Ray Humphreys will disappear from Greenville overnight, like a passing storm front. We will awaken to the disaster and devastation that he will leave in his wake, and like all stunned victims, we will suffer and lament, "If only we had been warned..."
Take heed Greenville. The casualties of DRMC will be real; they will be numerous; and they will be among you all.
