Not surprised Chattanooga is against the use of a consultant...just like ya'll are against degree's and education. Besides, it's just healthcare.

No surprise that certain people love to waste money on consultants. A CEO can easily be hired without using consultants.

I agree with Salsa, consultants are a waste of money and Erlanger will probably hire from within and all that head hunter money is down the tubes.

The idea of using a consultant is to have an unbiased person with no personal agenda to find a CEO. The unfortunate truth is that many times the match does not work. Then the board of directors yell at the top of their collective voices how they are not responsible and how, had it been their choice, this person would not have been hired. The consultant already has been paid their half-million dollars or more and say, "It's your baby now, you rock it". The overall result: $500,000 gone, no one is held accountable for the debacle, and the consultant laughs all the way to the bank. Using a consultant for outside "talent"? Anyone remember Jimmy Dodson and what a great job he did for CPD? CPD is still recovering from this great outside choice.

If you think it's so easy Salsa, perhaps you should apply for position of Erlanger Trustee, since they managed to hire someone who "wrecked the hospital"...according to a current Trustee.
