Loss of Many Qualified Staff

Well, hoping to spark some conversation and at the same time get some answers posted...

As we know, in the past several years we have lost many valuable staff, some leaving by choice ( had enough, disgusted) and others via un-renewed contracts. ;The decision to not renew the contracts has been due to " high salary " and with the exception of Dr. ;Maronne, kept very low profile. I would like to know what are these high salaries?
What are the salaries of the current CMO, CMO assistant, CFO, and CEO?

If we have saved all these salaries ( no one was replaced), where is the money? We are still short on supplies, staff, space, etc etc.

How much more can we lose and still function?

The docs at  over worked, tired, and fear we may lose more if they have a place to go...

One patient report today arriving at the clinic at 8 am where she had an appointment and did not get seen until 3 pm.  Are we back full circle to poor service again all because of some administrative. _________________(fill in the blank, cannot find the words)
 

CMS and our USMLE physicians

i know a few years back we were cited for lack of US licensed physicians, and there was even a movement to no longer hire physicians non USLicensed, and to assist current physicians to get their US license.  Now, we have lost most of our USLicensed physicians and  I wonder,

1.  How many physicians at LBJ currently have a US locense

2.  Will this affect our Medicare standing?
