Financially Moving in the Right Direction 5/12/2011
Okanogan Douglas Hospital Board members told those in attendance at Monday’s meeting that, despite a period of upheaval, things are moving in the right direction at the financially troubled facility. The turmoil of the last year has included the resignation of the Hospital’s CEO, the naming of Sandy Sylvester as his replacement, a reduction in staff the equivalent of 14 positions and pressure to pay off warrants that were issued by the county treasurer.

As part of cost savings measures, the hospital has reduced the hours of their business office to 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The board also passed a resolution changing the board meetings to the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month at 4 p.m.
