I've been observing District Hospitals in California (48), and other states e.g.,
Washington, Idaho, Montana, No & So Dakota, Texas, Minnesota, etc., with publicly
elected boards with revenue from taxpayers - who hire the CEO (Chief Executive
Officer) to manage the hospital. In California it appears the
CEOs (Control Elected Officials) are managing the elected boards and the (COS Chief of Staff) Medical Executive to keep costs down for the CEO's year-end

think tank in Norway evaluating, comparing and contrasting systems. I've stood up
for what is right for Consumers only to find Consumers not engaged locally to help
me with holding their local hospital district and CEO accountable. Corruption at
this hospital is very deep, and I chose not to run for another four years as I
decided I will do more for Consumers in another way. Knowledge is power and I now
