What's more newsworthy than another person distancing themself from Byron Brown, is the title of Donna Brown's new position at ECMC. From today's Buffalo News:
At ECMC, she will serve as director of patient satisfaction and cultural awareness, a new executive-level position created to improve patient services at the Buffalo hospital.
Everyone is hurting financially. Teachers are being laid off. Businesses are closing. Yet our tax dollars will go to improve cultural awareness at ECMC? Are they serious?
"Donna is a perfect fit," said Jody L. Lomeo, ECMC's chief executive officer, "because she'll have the clout to reach into all corners of our operation and collaborate with doctors, nurses and staff to create an atmosphere of patient appreciation and diversity that becomes a national standard."
Well, when you put it that way. When I go to get antibiotics, the one thing I'm looking for is a climate of patient appreciation and diversity. No replacement for Brown has been named but one person's name keeps being thrown into the mix...
