To the Editor:
Centegra Hospital McHenry, formerly Northern Illinois Medical Center, in the past year or so is not the hospital that I volunteered at from 2002 through 2012. I still might be there if not for an accident in our family that changed my ability to continue on a scheduled basis.
Today, it is losing top nurses through their choice or Centegra’s choice. Employees are despondent. Why? Top echelon, outrageous salaries from the top down need to be examined. I still keep in touch with several people there. The morale and expertise is not anything like it used to be. NIMC needs salary readjustments on all levels and a rejuvenation of attitude.
The community needs to get involved to bring this once great hospital back to the high morale and standards it was once known for.
