Exclusive: Hospital Authority Board passed over 90+ extremely qualified candidates to select Ray Reynolds as CEO (Resume's included)

10 May 2013 at 12:50:40 PM

In August of 2011 when the new CEO was hired at the Glen Rose Medical Center by the Somervell County Hospital Authority, I decided to get copies of all the resume's of folks that applied for the job because everyone knew who they were going to pick even before the job was posted so I thought let's do a comparison of the person chosen versus those who applied in regards to education.

This was not a priority for me at the time so I did the open records request and after I received the records on CD, I put the CD on a shelf. I have now pulled it off the shelf since this seems like an appropriate time and uploaded ALL the resume's of folks that applied, any blacked out areas (or lack thereof) were done by the Hospital Authority, they are posted as received. There are so many that they were done in batches, here are the links to the resume's, recomendation letters, and an outline of degrees on those who applied for ease of comparison:

Now think about ALL the extremely qualified people that were passed over for this very important position. If the hospital district and the new property tax is approved (you can still vote against it on Saturday the 11th, sample ballot and voting infomration here) then these same people on the current hospital authority board who made this decision will be in charge until the election and you know they will choose the same status quo again when it comes to selecting the CEO. A reminder that the choice the hospital authority board made last time (Ray Reynolds who has NO degrees in healthcare) was so much better in their opinion than the rest of the folks on this list that they had to keep Gary Marks on the payroll for another 9 months therefore paying two CEO's at once for 3/4 of a year...all with our tax dollars!

Incidentally, per Larry Shaw, one of the main reasons Reynolds was hired was because the board wanted someone from Somervell County... but Reynolds lived in Stephenville and didn't move here till months later.
