Ask Ray Humphrey's how many of KDH Hospital employees he promised would be employed and are now employed at DRMC or the "West Campus?" What happened to the contract employees? None were hired and they went elsewhere. I cannot find even 6 full time employees of KDH that ended up keeping a job within DRMC's system.
The rest went to Bolivar County, Chicot County and Home Heath or just stayed home like my wife. We lost over $50,000 in income for the last 3 years. Humphrey's lied to the KDH staff and to the DDT.

Many lies were told to both sides during the merger of the two hospitals. Ray stated that "consultants" had been hired to interview all personnel in "duplicate" positions and that they would select the most qualified. What a joke! There were no "consultants"; only Ray's spies who he had hand picked to dupe the public into believing his conquest was in the best interest of health care.
Actually, Ray bought a lot of talent when he purchased KDH... excellent nurses and business professionals who all knew what it takes to run a safe and profitable hospital. But...did Ray welcome them into the fold and seek their advice and direction for the failing DRMC? NO! He systematically set out to destroy the careers of anyone who had been a supporter of KDH.
Three years later, scores of jobs and (in Bill's case alone) over $150,000 in wages have been lost to Greenville residents whose jobs were ended by the hands of this tyrant. Adjoining counties revel as OUR nurses and allied health professionals choose $4.00 gas over autocracy!
To be honest, Ray has no dog left in this fight... and perhaps no fight at all. He has conquered his most hated competitor, David Fuller (KDH CEO), demoralized and humiliated the staff of both hospitals and ruined a once thriving health care community. HE is the victor; however, there are very few "spoils" left to reap. A prudent man would offer his resignation in the face of his obvious public defeat. An astute leader would heed the waring signs of ultimate change and bow out gracefully.
Ultimately, Ray's resignation will either be offered... or demanded. For now Ray, it is your choice.
