Hospital Issues that have been
Several of the editorials have raised
questions about the hospital issue. We want to know when the
Hospital Committee will be meeting and where. We’ll let you
know when we do find out. One thing that everyone needs to realize
is the fact that the Jasper County Board of Commissioners is
NOT a party to the contract with Oconee Regional Hospital.
The BOC is not legally obligated to pay anything to the hospital.
Oconee (ORH) and Jasper Health Services (JHS) signed the contract in
1999 and again in 2004. Under this contract Oconee pays JHS
one dollar ($1.00) a year. We have gotten other
information, including the financial statements for the hospital,
that will be available for your inspection at the next TWG meeting.
