There remain three items which link Sequoia Hospital with the Sequoia Healthcare District:
1. the EBIDA profit sharing arrangement whereby the District is essentially a shareholder in the hospital. That constitutes a financial instrument which can be sold, just as a share of stock.
2. the inclusion of two District Directors on the Sequoia Hospital Board of Directors. I have addressed this apparent conflict of interest in my prior post.
3. the Nurses Education Program which is discussed in another topic. Web Link and will be on the Sequoia Healthcare District's agenda at their Feb. 6, 2013 boardmeeting.
Following is an e-mail I sent on 12/31/2012 to Glenna Vaskelis, President of Sequoia Hospital regarding their Board of Directors:
"Glenna, while viewing your website, I found your Community Benefit Report very informative. Web Link
Of particular interest, was the message from you and Art Faro, Board Chair, Sequoia Hospital Board of Directors. I then searched your website for mention and listing of your Board of Directors. Iím sure it must be there, but I could not find it.
Perhaps you can provide me with a link to that information.
Jack Hickey, Elected Director, Sequoia Healthcare District"
I am awaiting a response.
