An email was delivered to employees of Northern Inyo Hospital today, and a terse press was was issued by Northern Inyo Hospital:

It reads: “The Board of Northern Inyo Healthcare District and its CEO have agreed to make the following statement:

Ms. Alexander-Lane’s employment as the Chief Executive Officer of Northern Inyo Healthcare District has ended effective immediately.

The Board thanks her for her contributions over the last eighteen months and wishes her well in her future career.

The District and Ms. Alexander-Lane have agreed to make no further statement regarding her employment and the ending of her employment.”

The Northern Inyo Healthcare District Board of Directors has appointed Dr. Kevin Flanigan as the interim Chief Executive Officer.

Alexander-Lane was hired in January, 2014 and attended her first board meeting in April of last year.

The past few months have seen many tense Northern Inyo Hospital Board meetings, with employees and members of the public critical of Alexander-Lane’s management style.

Nurses at Northern Inyo Hospital formed a union earlier this year, and there’s a pending lawsuit against Mammoth Hospital, which opened an office in Bishop.

Regarding the sudden and unexplained departures of Mono CAO Leddy, Fair Director Symons, and now NIH CEO Alexander-Lane, We, the People, need to remember at election time the following admonition, found in the first section of the Brown Act, which governs the boards of their employing entities: “The people of… Read more »

I wonder how much this immediate resignation cost NIH. I’m sure that Ms. Alexander Lane received a large settlement and it is likely that this is a pattern of behavior on her part. Hopefully the board has learned some lessons and that these lessons will not come at a cost… Read more »

The public has the right to know what transpired.

Agreed! The taxpayers fund most of the hospital through the property assessment they levied within the Hospital District 10 years ago, we should know more.

Actually, we don’t have a right to know why people quit their jobs? Most company’s only verify if they really worked there. Unless you sign a release.

Thanks Erik, but I may have added words, or taken their words out of context some what. Sorry if I did folks. They didn’t really say they want to know whY she quit. And the tax payers probably do have a right to no what their money was spent on.

Can we please seriously look at merging with Mammoth Hospital District? Also Tonopah needs help, maybe we can setup a clinic there tied to Bishop.

Let’s see how happy everyone is when they have to raise the costs to patients yet again to make those overworked and underpaid nurses even more money. Bully tactics win.

Ickity, I have a family member that works for a hospital and he had to take out basically a house loan just to pay for his degree/schooling. I know another person working all her free time at Bishop Hospital and going to school for nursing. She is half done and… Read more »

So can the nurses start watching YouTube videos, texting friends, and uploading pics to Facebook again? I hope so; the moral was getting kinda low!

It’s strange that a quick internet search for this individual shows that she “abruptly resigns” from almost all her previous positions and hasn’t stayed in a single position for longer than 5 years. That should have said something to NIH hiring panel back in 2014…I know morale is in the… Read more »
