Large Turnout for Putnam County Memorial Hospital Board Meeting

The Putnam County Memorial Hospital board Monday evening had a large crowd following the recent news of layoffs and rumors of financial trouble. The group of concerned citizens didn’t have any questions for the board. They say they just wanted to attend to better understand what is going on with the hospital. Prior to announcing the 20 or so layoffs, the hospital’s board of trustees accepted the resignations of CEO Cindy Cummings and COO Jerry Cummings. The board says they have no plans to begin a search for new leaders, and members are closely looking at all of the hospital’s financials.
