Careful, Strib. You don't want Rahm Emmanuel up in your grille, do you? I never thought anyone could make Allina look good, but Accretive, my hat is off to you--you've done it!

Letting a vendor make hiring/firing decisions? Offspring of board members employed by Accretive, while board members also had stock in Accretive? This was a total abdication of management by Fairview administration. And everybody in leadership still has their jobs?

Here is a thought, stop spending money on consultants like a teenager with daddy's credit card. That should save SOME of the money you are worried about collecting.

Thanks once again to the best AG Minnesota has ever had. She has our back on main street. Keep up the good work for all Minnesotan's.

maybe Fairview should be checking it's own management starting at the top?

"Let's face it, sometimes when people are in crisis the last thing they are thinking about [is] the cost," ...... When 22% of the health care dollar goes to paper shufflers while other industrialized nations are are 3-7%, I had hoped the Obama Care really could have made a difference but in the end it will be just a sad other blotted government program.

It's situations like this - as well as issues with ethical complaints against surgeon Dr. David Polly - that make me glad that I no longer work for Fairview. Eustis and the rest of the senior management are driven by money, not philanthropic will and patient care, as they like to claim.

In regards to patient care, I was terminated from the University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview because I had the nerve to ask the entity safety officer about some concerns I had regarding issues that the surgical department management team wasn't addressing, i.e. people in street clothes being allowed into sterile areas that required surgical attire (hospital laundered scrubs and hair restraints.)
