Ran by dishonest, back stabbing individuals

Many (Former Employee) - Fairfield, TX - May 28, 2019

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed

Some good people were discharged by company “just because” they had another they wanted employed, administration and some supervisors are very dishonest, non caring and just seem to be there for a paycheck. The pay is much lower compared to surrounding areas and raises are very rare. The company steadily going downhill and they do not appreciate their employees. HR and most managers are very rude and make it known they “run the show”. They do not value their employees. Insurance is very expensive. They tend to fire or “let go” good employees who have invested many years of loyalty. Beware, fake backstabbing administration and managers!

Pros

Cant think of anything

Cons

Low pay, expensive medical benefits, lacking leadership

Board of Freestone Medical Center doubles taxes to keep doors open

FAIRFIELD, TX — Taxpayers in Fairfield got answers from their local hospital board about why the board wants to almost double the taxes residents pay to keep their medical center open.

A May referendum gave the Freestone Medical Center Board of Directors authority to raise the tax, which will cost the average taxpayer with a $100,000 home an extra $98 a year. Board members explained the community cannot afford the cost, in money and lives, of shutting the hospital down.

James Bonner came to the Freestone Medical Center Thursday night looking for answers. He wanted to know why the Freestone Medical Center Board of Directors decided to double the taxes he pays for the health care center.

"It's a business that needs to make a profit, and the taxpayers should not have to pay to keep this thing totally running," said Bonner.

Members of the Board of Directors told Central Texas News Now they agree, in principle, but they know if they want to keep this hospital open they need everyone in and around Fairfield to have some "skin in the game."

”If you lose this facility, what you're going to find is, we're going to lose a lot of citizens, and I don't want that for our people here in this county," said Freestone Medical Center Board Chairman George Robinson.

Robinson said he's seen what's happened in Rockdale, Cameron and other communities that lost their hospitals, and then lost people to long ambulance wait times and sometimes longer trips to a trauma center that can handle their injuries.

It's begun to happen all over Texas and around the country.

Freestone Medical Center CEO John Yeary and his staff hit the ground running when the hospital district board took over, cutting expenses. In fact, Yeary and his crew cut one million dollars in expenses in just this past year.

Meantime, the board says it only wants a tax hike to 21 cents, not the 25 cents they could get, all to make sure the Freestone Medical Center can stay in the life-saving game.

"I promise you, if I'm still affiliated with this board, and I have been since 1999, once we get to where we're back in the black, and we do have some cash reserves in the event of an emergency, I will commit that we will lower those taxes back down," promised Robinson.

And with that promise made, Bonner made his own promise.

"We want the hospital there, but we can't be taxed to death," said Bonner.

Bonner also added if the hospital expects payment at the time of service, taxpayers keeping the hospital afloat deserve a similar deal.

Fairfield Hospital now Freestone Medical Center

The Fairfield Hospital District Board announced their new hospital, Freestone Medical Center, effective Jan. 1, 2017.

 

"We have completed the careful transition of our hospital to the District, with the assistance of Community Hospital Consulting (CHC Consulting), and are proud to introduce Freestone Medical Center to our community," said FHD Chair George Robinson.

"We have a new name and the same great service. Patient care is still our top priority," said Stace Holland, who became Freestone Medical Center CEO on Dec. 19, 2016. Holland, a seasoned hospital executive leader, has recently been part of the CHC Consulting operations team managing Morehouse General Hospital, Bastrop, La., and prior, served as CEO of Pineville Community Hospital, Pineville, Ky.

"On behalf of the Board, the hospital and our community, we are very excited to have the hospital under local control with management support from CHC Consulting," Holland added. CHC Consulting is the management and consulting arm of Community Hospital Corporation of Plano, Texas. The management agreement was approved by the FHD board in September of 2016.

"This is a very strategic step toward preserving and improving healthcare services for the people we serve, today and for the future," Robinson added. The hospital also has an affiliation agreement with Baylor Scott & White Health for advisory and educational services. Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Hillcrest in Waco is the closest Baylor Scott & White medical center to Freestone Medical Center.

Freestone Medical Center provides healthcare services to residents of Fairfield and neighboring East Texas communities, including Buffalo, Jewett, Mexia, Streetman, Teague, Wortham, and beyond.
