Tuesday, November 10, 2015 should have some interesting things happening.
The agenda for our county hospital’s board meeting has these items on it:
10. Receive a presentation from Dr. Annabi and other members of the Mcdical Staff regarding leadership at UMC.
11. Discuss and take appropriate action with respect to appointment of a Transition Committee to oversee the process to identify a successor to Jantes N. Valenti, President and Chief Executive Officer.
12. Discuss and take appropriate action with respect to appointment of a Nominating Committec to oversee the recruitment and selection of individuals to serve on the Board of Directors for the Bl I’aso Children’s Hospital.
VivaValenti.com has not produced a landslide of support for our hospital administrator. I wonder if anyone actually thought it could.
Item 12 is interesting at several levels. Nominating is the process of proposing someone for a position. Since the committee will evidently “oversee the recruitment and selection of individuals” it is actually a selection committee. They are trying to hide the nature of the committee by giving it a misleading name.
The executive session agenda has the main event of the board meeting:
17. Discuss and deliberate regarding the Annual Evaluation of Mr. Jamcs N. Valenti, President and CEO, pursuant to Texas Government Code $55 1.074.
With all of the opprobrium relating to the hospital this year, my personal belief is that he should not get another dime.
I don’t have much hope that the right thing will happen.
We deserve better
