|At Parkland yesterday, more new executives, more information about their pay, and still more controversy|
|Parkland surprised everyone—including Fred|
Cerise—with the announcement of a new interim
CFO Mark Erath from Geisinger Medical Center in
Danville, PA. CEOs hate surprises like this one.
So how hard is it to write one's name on a piece of paper these days? Does the timing of this very coincidental announcement sound strange to you?
As we have predicted all along, the devil may be in the details of the contract which Cerise and his lawyers may still be hammering out with Parkland and their legal staff, especially over his compensation package and guarantees he wants in place before he starts work.
The biggest question may be: Is a million dollars a year enough for Cerise to take on the daunting challenges and risks that lie ahead in leading such an embattled and discredited hospital system such as Parkland?
