    How can Heather Negrotto be on a board where she is on staff and her sister works at JPH also?

    • Pat Says:

      Because the practitioner must be employed at the hospital.

      • Questioned Says:

        So what your telling me is that Jim Fannin worded “his” bill to include practitioners that work at the same place where they are employed? Fannin does not even like nurse practitioners. I believe the bill was meant to have another provider.

    Maybe just maybe we are on the way to having a real hospital for Jackson parish. It’s time.

    • Questioned Says:

      I think your right, all of the new board members really know how a hospital needs to be run!

    This is very satisfactorily written. The blog post was informative to elocutionists who exactly possess a good value for articles. We looking forward for even more of the same. He has described each and everything very well and briefly.
