That mostly nonsense quote alone from Ryba is just code for more money down the drain. Neither practice medicine or treat patients. They just walk off with huge paychecks.

You nailed it, Ed. That quote is a textbook example of using lots of important sounding words that taken together have no meaning whatsoever.

In plain English, the best way Zdeblick could reduce costs would be to give his boss about a 75% pay cut, and cut the inflated salaries of everyone else who contributes nothing to patient care.

El Camino AGAIN with the usual Blah Blah Blah rhetoric. Used to be that good people were hired to work hard and EXPECTED to do a great job. We have to receive a birth announcement every time the hospital sneezes. Wish they would focus on taking care of illness instead of their business plan. That WORK should be for the CEO and the COO.

We receive a birth announcement every time the hospital sneezes because the ex-editor of the Voice is now the director of media relations at El Camino Hospital.

So much for objective journalism.
