Over the past few months I have read articles written in the opinion section concerning Cuyuna Regional Medical Center.

This has compelled me to sum up my thoughts about what has been said. At the February board meeting, my intent for speaking as I did was for the need for awareness to board members of what is said to employees that may not be written on paper in the disciplinary process. I stated facts about what was said to me - no false mud-slinging.

I have spoken to two board members individually about the disciplinary process I went through. One member said they would look into the process, which needs to include the employee's input as to how they were treated and their work environment.

I am a customer of CRMC and am very pleased with the care I have received, including physicians and all of the staff that make CRMC great. There have been articles written, however, that are one-sided and lack global perspective. CRMC gets its reputation by the collaborative efforts of physicians and staff working together. If one part of this team is not being treated in a fair way, it will threaten the integrity of the team.

In closing, I would like to express my gratitude to former patients, friends and employees for the overwhelming support you have given me.
