10/11 Q&A NOTES - MEMORIAL HOSPITAL / Current & 2012 Ballot

Posted 10-26-2011 at 05:50 AM by LoriCorl

Colo Spgs friends, here are our Q&A NOTES from my 2-hour Q&A/Discussion (Tue, Oct 11). Do share with friends/family/neighbors/coworkers - many of us are confused, 1 week left before Nov 1 ballot due.

Great questions from neighbors/friends and responses are in PDF attachment. I'm certain EVERYONE will find questions that have been on their minds! (EX: Why Change if it ain't Broke?, November Ballot (voting Yes/No? - see 10/15 email), Why the rush?, Current Financial situation?, PERA?, what say do we have?, TRICARE?, Non-Profit vs For-Profit?, Why Non-Profit?, Public Accountability?, Why lease?, Sales proceeds?, confusing ads?, how to get involved? Memorial History, City owned?)

  • Memorialís History/Background
  • Why do we need to change Memorial? Itís been working fineóthe care is good and itís been successful.
  • If the laws are the issue, why not just change them?
  • There is a November ballot measure related to Memorial. What is this? How does it relate?
  • What is Memorialís current financial situation?
  • What about PERA?
  • Whatís the difference between a nonprofit and a for-profit hospital?
  • Why did the Citizensí Commission recommend that Memorial become a local nonprofit?
  • If Memorial were to become a nonprofit, what kind of public accountability would they have?
  • Why a lease? Why not a sale to a for-profit or a conversion to a nonprofit?
  • Could money from a lease or sale be used to support the City?
  • Iíve heard that this is all just a ploy to line the pockets of Memorial executives. Didnít they get bonuses in the recent past?
  • Why the rush?
  • Where do I find more information on the current Task Force/Request for Proposal terms and process?
  • Iím hearing ads criticizing the Task Force process for reviewing responses from the RFP process. Whoís behind these?
  • How do I get involved?

Thanks, LoriC
