Consultants are similar to prostitutes. You pay them enough money, and they'll say and do anything. They'll even say they love you! Over at El Camino Hospital, the consultants (prostitutes) say the Board is doing a great job. Take their opinion for what it's really worth. If I paid them a dollar more than the El Camino Hospital Board, they would say the exact opposite if I asked them to!

As a patient and taxpayer in the El Camino Hospital District, I find the editorial by Board Member Wes Alles to be quite offensive. The Board has shown many times that they do not take their fiduciary responsibilities seriously. Certainly Mr. Alles can't have forgotten already the lack of fiduciary responsibility shown by Board Member Ed Bough, MD with his competing heart scanner. How could Mr. Alles forget the actions of former CEO Lee Domanico who seemed to pick untested and unreliable products for the hospital based on whether those same companies gave him a position on their board payable with stock options? The past criminal activity of Board Member Mark O'Connor goes beyond the pale - multiple break ins at a physician's home and vandalizing and stealing his property. Offensive? You betcha!
