Stop upgrading your "band-aid" factory and pay your employees. Try having a reputation for good doctors, nurses and other staff instead of your outward appearance.

You contradicted yourself....You can't call it a "band aid factory" and expect investments by the hospital into certain areas. Plus this is seeking funding, not putting up funding. I would love to find a funding source to pay my employees but it doesn't know what does exist? funding sources for aesthetic improvements. Why would they not try for grants that would upgrade their facilities? doesn't make any sense. Plus if it is just a band aid factory, Maybe they should just shut their doors and put all those people out of work?

Say it isn't so, Joe! Delta? OMG! Hospital Authority how could you fall for this?!? Why was it not made public that the Hospital had fallen for the Delta line of bull? Is it not a PUBLIC hospital? We had a right to know this. How much have they spent so far? We know all about Delta from our hometown. If you do a little searching on Google you will too. Our new governor and just about every other Republican with some influence in Harrisburg has spoken out on Delta. No coincidence that the first two letters are D-E. Did our Hospital Authority do their homework? If the hospital is going to get any state grants with Delta you can rest assured that there will be plenty siphoned off the top before the taxpayer money ever gets to serving the public. Geesh!

Charles Cole Memorial Hospital is a very good hospital. I have had experience with Physicians,Nurses,administration,
Therapist and the Star front line employees-Nursing Assistants, Housekeeping, Maintanence and Dietary staff and I have found them to be caring,generous,diligent,and experienced. I would recommend this facility to anyone ! This facility is is like an undiscovered diamond---you have no idea how fortunate you are to have such a fine facility!! Instead of always putting it down and finding fault--why not do something constructive, like support it and find the good in it! Remember the saying," you don't know what you got till it's gone? Well, It would be a sad day if CCMH-Charles Cole Memorial Hospital every closes!!
Find the good points and support a fine group of people!

I too was unaware that Charles Cole had signed on with Delta.
Believe me, I know all about Delta.
Delta is all about Delta when it comes to its devotion to public projects.
Who sold the hospital on Delta and why was it so hush-hush.
I think I know some of the players already.
Can we get untangled from that contract now that the Democrats are out of power.
I hope this Hospital Authority is not a bunch of yes-men.

This story is symbolic of what wrong at Charles Cole. The board of directors meets in private and no public input or scrutiny. The hospital authority also has no public input or scrutiny. I did a web search on Delta after seeing the comment above. Governor Corbett and the other Republicans who are taking control of the pendulum of power in Harrisburg do not look too kindly on Delta, especially after Delta was being paid by the Democratic leadership as a consultant to the Democrats. I wish Charles Cole would have done their homework on this. How much money has been paid to Delta? The people have the right to know.

Where has the news media been on this Charles Cole/Delta connection? I miss the good local news reporting where the reporters actually asked questions and dug up the news and held people accountable.
