Pam Mason 3 months ago on Mayo reaching out

Loved the Mayo Clinic! Blood taken in the morning for work up, and results often available that afternoon. Doctors are always polite, professional and extremely smart. A new health plan now allows me to go back to them next year and I can't wait!

Pam Mason 3 months ago on Concerns about MHA, RCEF, RCEA, SLE University backers

Phoenix Business Journal March 18, 2015

........MHA owns the hospital and the land, and has been leasing the hospital to Franklin, Tennessee-based Community Health Systems Inc. (NYSE: CYH). But that 18-year lease agreement expires on July 31, said Sanja Long, CEO of MHA. "They've provided good care here," she said. "It's not a matter of complaints with the current tenant." The small Payson hospital was suffering financially when Community Health Systems took over 18 years ago, she said. "They came in and helped get the hospital back on track and invested in the facility," she said. But now that that lease is set to expire this summer, she said the MHA board figured it was time to see what's best for Payson overall. As part of the Banner acquisition, a new foundation will be created. Part of its mission will be to help Payson bring a four-year university to the area, she said.

Thank you all for sharing the information you have been able to uncover.

Quoting what Pat wrote "Pat Randall 2 days, 23 hours ago "Why shouldn't the residents be informed of what is going on? We are going to be taxed for a lot of things. Roads, water, more police, fire fighters and on and on. We should have been able to vote before any of what has been done with out any information given to us" If that happens then would that not be taxation without representation?

Maybe the next step would be to present what has been uncovered to the major daily newspaper in Phoenix ..... I believe they do investigative reporting!!

I completely agree with Mr. Hamric and yes it can be a pain to itemize however, it is necessary when dealing with public funds. Supposing someone goes to Home Depot or Wal-Mart and just turns in a credit card receipt. How would we know that the public money was not spent on some additional items for personal use or card holders own business? We wouldn't. It is a sad state of affairs that just a few worms will ruin it for the vast majority of honest citizens placed in a position of trust. Fraud does happen and rules need to be in place to protect the public purse.

Everyone being reimbursed from public funds needs to submit an itemized receipt, no if and or buts. It is too easy to rip of the public, as some of us have witnessed.
