It is easy for someone to spit out allegations when they see something they’ve determined to be wrong. Maybe someone has led them to believe they have been treated unfairly and they strike out to make it right and save their honor. The important thing is to be sure all the facts are truly factual. In the case of the doctors who have made allegations against the Moore County Hospital District board and CEO, there has been no evidence to validate those claims. Documentation has proven those allegations to be unwarranted. Regardless of the intention, these doctors’ allegations have affected everyone in our community.
In August the MCHD board heard the allegations during executive session, which is fitting, given that the allegations constituted a personnel issue. After listening to the physicians’ concerns, the board found no reason to act upon them. The board members were approved by the Moore County Commissioners based upon their proven commitment to contribute to the growth of the community. The board does not make arbitrary decisions that would have a negative impact on the hospital or the county. We trust them and their decisions. Their decision not to act on the physicians’ vote of no confidence in the hospital’s CEO tells us they found no merit in the allegations. The matter should have ended there.
