Covenant Medical Staff Votes "No Confidence" In Administration

Related Story: Covenant Administration Responds To Vote of "No Confidence"

NewsChannel 11 has learned of a dispute between employees and management of Covenant Health System. We have confirmed reports that medical staffers held a vote of "no confidence" Thursday night. 

They feel like Covenant management has made major decisions that affect patients without any input from doctors and nurses. They say the new children's hospital, which is vacant, and the soon-to-be-built emergency room at 98th and Slide are two examples. 

The medical staffers also feel like they were not allowed to have input on the recent negotiations between Covenant and Blue Cross.
