Hagan asks Forum Health trustees to divulge details on bids for system

Probably too little, too late but you have to give Hagen some credit for trying. At least the board chairman is finally identified. Now how about the other 20 names? If the board wasn't ashamed of the decisions they've been making they wouldn't be trying to hide their identities. Actions DO speak louder than words people.

Union expects objections to Forum Health plan to pay former CEO

On another message board a writer hit the nail on the head. Where are the true investigative reporters? Why isn't the media doing everything in their power to identify the individuals behind these lousy decisions? If this was happening in a big city with a big newspaper the names of each board member involved with Forum health would have been published a long time ago. Don't you think we have the right as residents of Trumbull County and users of these hospitals to know who is making these recommendations to the court? Give us thoroughly reporting and let us decide if the board is acting in the community's best interest or not. We can then let our voice be known by supporting those board members businesses or not!

Union leader upset with Forum Health pay proposal for Buzz Pishkur

Would the Vindicator publish the names of Forum Health's board members so the community knows who are making these dumb decisions? I think the residents have a right to know who these people are.

Union leader upset with Forum Health pay proposal for Buzz Pishkur

Maybe the time has come for the unions to join forces with the physicians and formally go on record with the lenders against such a stupid expensive request. Come on people. Wake up. This isn't some game. We're talking about thousands of people's lives. Tell Buzz to take his expert advice some place else. Forum doesn't need him or want him.

Pishkur would be paid $9,000 weekly as a Forum Health consultant

Forum's Board should all be fired tonight for having the nerve to even ask the court to approve $9K/week for an inexperienced, unproven, totally incompetent person. What a slap in the face to everyone trying to survive the lousy leadership that we've had to deal with lately.
Lenders, union leaders, physicians and all employees need to express their outrage immediately to everyone before it is too late. Hopefully the judge that hears this request will be wise enough to deny it.
