Our county hospital board has let us down again.
According to a recent article in the Times they paid $208,000 to a recruiting firm to perform the search for a new hospital administrator.
Comparing that amount with the $23,000 that the city paid when searching for a city manager or the $30,000 that EPISD paid looking for a superintendent makes the hospital board look like fools.
Even more damning is that the new hospital administrator that the board hired was working right here in El Paso and was the obvious choice.
Our county commissioners need to quit planning how to spend their astronomical pay raises and put some people on the hospital board that will get things under control.
Instead they recently appointed the city’s former chief financial officer to the board. Remember what she did to us?
We deserve better
