Well, today was one for the books. The short version is: I lost my job.
The long version is as follows. The hospital has been overseen by a court receiver since long before I got there. He called me in this afternoon, after the CEO had literally fled the scene. He told me they had decided to take HR in a new direction.
He said I did great at what they hired me for--getting them through negotiations and dealing with the unions--but they want to focus on more administrative HR stuff now. Okay, so let's review that piece of things.
When I got there, they couldn't even find a lot of the personnel files. Months later, when we had our Joint Commission survey, everything was in order, and HR got a perfect score.
My guess is that they're going to do with my position what they have done with a lot of others at the hospital lately. They're going to bring in a relative or crony of the CEO. Okay, so be it.
The loveliest part of this was that the receiver told me around 3:30pm and said I had to clear out my office today. Thanks for all the time to clear out! Geez!
I had to be out today, he said, because the new guy will be coming in tomorrow! This just reeks of another nepotistic move on their part. Well, so be it.
So does anyone on Long Island or in NYC need an HR Director? I've got lots of experience and a law degree! :)
