The Hopkins County Memorial Hospital Board voted at give all current employees of the Hospital District a 2% raise retroactive to October 1, 2014 at a meeting Monday night. The idea came from board member Joe Bob Burgin.
Financial officer Donna Wallace told the board December was a good month for revenue. She added both the clinic and hospital met budget.
The board also helped CEO Michael McAndrew in a quest to accomplish two things that are not easy to do: find a Program Director for the hospital’s planned graduate medical education program and find a neurologist. The board approved contracts for both that will help McAndrew in his negotiations on both fronts.
The board also called a May 9 Board Election. Two seats are up this time. Incumbents are Dr. Suzanne Thomas Bankston and Dr. David Black. Filing begins Wednesday and will run through February 27.
