Hospital cut backs and savings

Posted on Fri, Mar 2, 2012 at 10:06 AM

So I heard on the radio today that our hospital health authority hired an outsource company to make recommendations towards cost savings. They recommended to outsource laundry services as it would save tax payers money. The hospitals response was that they were not going to outsource that service. WTF?? Did they not hear the part that it would save tax payers money? This is insane to me. I would really like to know their reason why they are not taking the recommendations of the company they paid 100k for their professional opinions. So let’s continue to pay people probably anywhere from 15 to 20 bucks (if not more) an hour to do laundry and maybe they will go on strike too and demand more money. Those people could go work for the outsource company so it wouldn’t be lost jobs. I would like an explanation as to why this recommendation is being declined on behalf of the tax payers! Is this health authority looking out for the taxpayer?? I think not. —Sick of These Authorities Making Poor Decisions with My Tax Money
