PHC Doomsday

Dear Editor,

If the following scenario takes place, there should be hell to pay:

This past week several cars were parked in the Peninsula Hospital lot signaling to some remembrances of the once vital health institution that had the west end’s backs. To skeptics, however, the hoard of autos signaled vultures hovering over and picking through the assets of PHC for anything of value that they can own for the bid of a few cents on the dollar, a coup for them.

Who knows the inventory better than Medisys and Revival? Who brought the hospital to doom? Who should unquestionably be outlawed from the bankruptcy sale as they were ‘in charge’ when the ship was sinking (the former) and when it sank (the latter)? Will banning Medisys and Revival from bidding on the spoils ever happen?

Not only should Medisys be banned from the sale, anyone representing them as their surrogate or proxy must also be disqualified from picking our hospital’s carcass clean. That would be the just scenario in the best possible of worlds.

In this world, the bankruptcy ‘whore,’ er, trustee Lori Lapin Jones, would most likely settle for anything that would put the finishing touches on the torch job she was commissioned to do to: throw the last shovelful of dirt on the hospital at cyber speed and collect her half million dollar + salary.

Why should Medisys and Revival be excluded from cashing in on PHC’s bankruptcy? It is the least that should be done to show our na├»ve neighbors and their kiddies that business isn’t as heartless, corrupt and cutthroat as it actually is.
