Hospital leaders doing best they can

Published 9:55am Saturday, September 15, 2012

Dear editor:

I am an employee at Chilton Medical Center, and I want to reassure everyone that we are doing the best that we can to provide excellent quality care to our patients.

We all have a passion for healthcare or we would not be here. Yes, we have hit a rough spot in the road, but I have faith that God will bring us through this. With today’s economy and our government, the healthcare industry is on a slope. It has just hit us harder because we are a rural hospital.

There have been several action plans discussed and ready to take place, and there is a step-by-step process to move forward with this. It may take some time with all the legalities, but it can be done.

We continue to need the positive support of our community and our employees. We all need to stay positive, and we shall have a positive outcome. God will see us through this.

There are many rumors out there that are not true. Some I have questioned myself and found out the truth. It doesn’t hurt to ask. Don’t believe everything that you hear. We still have our jobs and are here to care for our community. We put patient care first and ourselves last. Tough times don’t last, but tough people do.

Stephanie Dennis, Clanton
