DOTHAN:    You would think after some 80 lay off's at Southeast Alabama Medical Center AKA Southeast Health they could afford beds.

But according to information, from reliable sources within the bowels of SAMC AKA Southeast Health CEO Rick Sutton's command and control, beds are not important purchases.

WAIT...with the name change of SAMC AKA Southeast Health, did their mission change? 

OK...time for seriousness...

(1) Emergency responders have said enough is enough... DO NOT page at 2 AM to tell Southeast Alabama Medical Center AKA Southeast Health is on diversion. We are volunteers and those pages wake us up. The emergency responders say they get woke up enough. Wait until they are preparing to transport and then tell them Southeast Alabama Medical Center AKA Southeast Health is on diversion.

(2) Emergency responder have said enough is enough...DO NOT page that Southeast Alabama Medical Center AKA Southeast Health is OFF diversion. The volunteers are again woke up enough as it is. Wait until they have a patient.

The reason for 1 and 2 is because Southeast Alabama Medical Center AKA Southeast Health is constantly on/off, on/off diversion. It takes a full time person just to figure out of they are on/off diversion.


Of course Southeast Alabama Medical Center AKA Southeast Health Chief Executive Officer Rick Sutton is to much of a coward to answer questions.

So do not expect him to answer my questions. And the board, well Winding Road is straighter then most of their backbones...not all of them but most of them!

So do not expect a "honest" answer from the Chief Executive Coward of SAMC AKA Southeast Health Rick Sutton...

But recently in BMU ( Behavioral Medicine Unit ) they ( Sutton ) has apparently not purchased enough beds for the patients. This is only a hospital where patients lay in the beds.

So one patient refused to be on the floor. That patient left.

Only for police-fire and local EMS to be called where the patient attempted suicide and is reported to have slit their wrists.

However Chief Executive Coward of SAMC AKA Southeast Health Rick Sutton has spent a reported $ 1.2 to $ 1.7 million dollars on signs and rebranding the hospital. He has gotten Chic-Fil-A and located it in the heart unit ( yes, fried food in the heart unit ). Reported to have bought new TV's for the hospital.

But the mission is serving patients ( before Chief Executive Coward Rick Sutton appeared ) but hard to have patients with no beds.

Of course, I can not verify my information. The reason is...Rick Sutton who came to Dothan from out of town is the Chief Executive Coward and not man enough to face me  - face to face and answer questions. Because I am not like others - I know when he is lying and will verify his answers.

But my information is from reliable sources within the confines of the Chief Executive Coward's domain and on good authority.

Check me out and see if my information is correct.


I know that no one at SAMC AKA Southeast Health would apologize to you. I am sorry each of you are having to endure the frustrations when help is needed. But until someone at SAMC AKA Southeast Health grows a spine and stops being a coward the problems will not be fixed.

I realize your frustrations. All I can do is report. The Chief Executive Coward will not comment and all the leaders have their heads in the sand. WAIT...sorry I said leaders.


And they want to bring in someone from out of town. No one who was raised in Dothan and attended Dothan City Schools is smart enough to be a leader. Just fact tomorrow at 10 AM...
