Trigg looking out for community health

As a senior citizen, living on a fixed income, I worry about the impact of Sutter Health’s conduct on our health and our community. I learned recently that our District Attorney Dale Trigg is preparing subpoenas so that he can investigate possible illegal activity that came to light in the Hussey vs. Sutter lawsuit. I commend Mr. Trigg for looking out for all of us. This could be a turning point in our community’s effort to stop Sutter’s plans, which include the ongoing threat of Sutter taking hospital ownership out of Del Norte County and downsizing our hospital to Critical Access status.

Meager projections another Sutter ploy proven false

The Del Norte County Board of Supervisors and (Crescent) City Council issued a joint resolution (2015-055) supporting the (Del Norte) Healthcare District’s efforts to ensure high quality health care in our region. www.co.del-norte.ca.us/departments/board-of-supervisors

One section in the resolution jumped out at me. It said the Camden Group study’s reports regarding profitability, numbers of in-patients and the need for Critical Access designation at Sutter Coast Hospital “have proven not accurate.”

Questions Sutter still hasn’t answered

To Scott Feller, Dr. Warren Rehwaldt, and Mojgan “Mosh” Arshi:

You are Del Norte County residents who were appointed to the Sutter Coast Hospital Board of Directors by Sutter Health. We all know that your hospital board meetings are closed to the public and that Sutter Coast will not release its meeting minutes. In November 2011, your board voted to transfer hospital ownership out of Del Norte County to a Sutter Health controlled corporation in San Francisco, over the objection of Chief of Staff Dr. Kevin Caldwell. Sutter Coast Hospital is locally owned. Sutter Health is contracted to manage the hospital, not to steal it from us, for nothing in return.

Exec’s arrogance shows why we need alternative to Sutter

Oh my gosh. Is this gentleman for real? Does Mr. (Mitch) Hanna think that all of Del Norte County is composed of ignorant, uninformed, uneducated, disinterested people?

His arrogance and attitude are infinitely offensive and telling. He reflects the attitude and behaviors of Sutter Health and reinforces the absolute necessity for Del Norte to go elsewhere for health care. Now is the time to request Asante and others to please, please, please consider establishing themselves within our community.

Hanna shouldn’t work against district

After Sutter CEO Mitch Hanna’s vile Coastal Voices article, Mrs. (Beverly) Hussey wrote her response in her own Coastal Voices. She asked Sutter Health and Sutter Coast Hospital to make the sealed court documents available to the public, public

officials including the DA Dale Trigg, and the Triplicate so we all have the truth about Sutter and the way Sutter does business.

I support the DA to subpoena the documents. Now, while Mr. Hanna ignores this request, the CEO has moved on to attacking and criticizing the elected officials of the Del Norte Healthcare District. Mr. Hanna would be much better served working with the district and focusing on bringing in doctors that the community needs.

Sutter a fake charity enriching executives

This is in response to the Dec. 2 Coastal Voices editorial written by Mr. (Mitch) Hanna, who has attacked someone who opposes Sutter corporation plan.

Mrs. (Beverly) Hussey is a kindhearted elderly lady. who fought bravely to honor the wishes of her late husband, who donated the land for Sutter Coast to build a locally owned hospital.

Fetal tissue, mercury and more in our shots

Let me get this straight. Obama lets every Tom, Dick and Harry over our southern border without a health check, no ID check, no nothing. Then he loads them up in buses and distributes them all across the country.

No one really knows how many because they ran the press off and blackened the windows on the buses, and it’s Americans’ fault that there are 26 cases of measles. Oh please.

Our only recourse is to press Sutter to be open

Now that the Hussey vs. Sutter Coast Hospital lawsuit has settled, we can no longer rely on Mrs. Hussey to stop Sutter from downsizing and taking hospital ownership out of Del Norte County. If we want better local healthcare, at a more reasonable price, we need to keep asking Sutter to come forward, open its books and meeting records, and start being open and honest with our community.

Compassion for others beats self-pity any day; life is good

Wanted to say that last Sunday after church, I stopped to check mail at the post office.  There on the floor at the far left corner was waking up, a homeless man, having slept a while there.  It just happened I had been thinking on a Christmas story where I had written about what seemed a homeless man visiting a home just as Christmas Day arrived, and how he got to come in and “visit” as he warmed up from the cold.

Sewer rate changes just another way to get more money from citizens

I see where a new water/sewer rate structure is being proposed with larger charges based upon the amount of water each household uses during each billing period. At first glance that may seem fair, at least until you realize that you are being billed extra for water that never goes down the sewer.

Water used for cooking, drinking, gardening, decorative bird baths and ponds, childrens toys, even car washing, never goes into the sewer, yet you would pay extra for that water and the sewer.

Union: DHSS staff dedicated, hard-working, compassionate

This is in response to the Dec. 7 article “Homeless’ Breakfast Club 2.5 Months Strong.”

Besides being an employee of Del Norte County Health & Human Services (DHHS), I am also president of the Miscellaneous/Professional employee’s union, DNCEA SEIU 1021. It is as union representative that I write in support of DHSS employees.

Unfortunately your article and DHHS director, Ms. Pierson, painted a negative view of DHHS workers, one that the union disagrees with.
