Let me guess, the "M" stands for "Morons"?
Let me preface these remarks by telling you that my criticism here is not directed toward the talented physicians there or the Methodist Church, which I assume is still in some way affiliated with this hospital. The clueless marketing and public relations department definitely doesn't consult with Jesus before they make decisions, and these remarks are directed toward them.
The group of second-rate professional communicators that came up with this confusing, silly marketing campaign was the same group of clowns that told me I "wasn't a good fit for the team," right before I was let go in 2006.
If the best professional communicator on your staff isn't a good fit for your team, what does that say about your team?
Your team sucks. Seriously.
Here's what the organization's own vice president (an honest, God-fearing man that obviously had his head pulled out of his ass) had to say:
I was told by two different journalists covering health during that period that I was "the best public relations person in the Texas Medical Center."
I didn't even seek out employment there. They created a position and called me, presumably because of the quality of my work at Baylor College of Medicine. There I earned three professional awards in a two-year period.
While employed at this particular hospital system, I received an unsolicited call from someone with the City of Houston that felt I'd make a good candidate for a vice president position at Houston Metro.
The difference between practicing medicine and leading it is making good decisions, and trust me, you folks sent the wrong person out the back door. It's time my blog reflected that. You no-count fruitloops couldn't lead your ass out of a paper bag.
Morons. Leading Medicine.
