Georgia Board of Regents proposes $19.8 million for new facility at Albany State University September 17, 2014
What should not be forgotten about all of this is the fact that the taxpayers of Albany and Dougherty county a on the hook for 195 million dollars for the bonds being floated for the purchase of Palmyra hospital. Aside that Mr. Rosenberg is beholden to Wernick, he should address how paying triple the value of Palmyra and the potential lease to PPHS is supposed to help SOWEGA and promote business when health care cost already are deterring business from coming to Albany. What do you think a monopoly of healthcare will do for SOWEGA? I know, put nails in the coffin and bury us. Albany is dead compliments of 30 plus years of mayoral incompetence, corruption, city government corruption, and 20 years of PPHS greed and corruption.
To recall Wernick all one needs is an honest hospital authority. The hospital authority could terminate the lease agreement on the principal that PPHS was supposed to provide low cost healthcare and since they don't it is grounds for terminate the hospital lease to PPHS.
Of course facts are ignored such as the gross conspiracy to break federal and state law. When Joel, HCA execs, PPHS and ppmh boards along with the hospital authority purchased Palmyra Hospital a public hearing was required to occur before said transaction which means the transaction occurred illegally and all individuals involved were complicit to violate the laws of the state of georgia while in conspiracy to avoid being subject to federal law.
Aside from the obvious double and triple chargin, why did Joel Wernick receive an interest free loan on his house. Why does our local charitable hospital have Loudermilk sitting as chairman of a debt collecting corporation suing patients whom are forced to pay Phoebe 252 percent markup bills.
They state quality care, but blood borne infections are through the roof, the hospital has a bed bug infection and numerous procedures like open heart surgeries have outcomes below national average.
Joel and the PPHS leadership has enriched themselves at the consequence of the tax payers and citizens of SOWEGa.
