Hospital board looks for new member

The Rockdale Hospital District board of directors is searching for a new member.

Directors met Tuesday at Richards Memorial Hospital and learned longtime member Larry Jackson has moved from Rockdale and has resigned from the board.

Also, former member Mike Vance has returned to serve in the position left vacant by the recent resignation of Dr. John M. Weed III.

Directors went into a lengthy executive session with Phil Ellett, Blackhawk CEO to discuss a number of issues involving the company which operates RMH.

Those issues are believed to have included recent layoffs of between 15 to 20 percent throughout the Blackhawk system, including Richards Memorial, outstanding balances due local vendors, funding and indigent care.
