NOMC disappointment

We can't report it if we don't know it. On the other hand, to what lengths can we go to get information, and what is our responsibility? Today's example is the closing of the North Oakland Medical Centers in Pontiac. Obviously, lots was going on behind the scenes that wasn't reported until it was too late for the community to do anything about it. Didn't Hospital Chief Executive Officer John Graham have an obligation to tell the public he had taken a new position in Saginaw? Didn't he or the board have an obligation to alert citizens that all was not well? Seven days in a row we called Graham's office seeking information and he did not respond. Who knows what might have happened if the public had been given more information sooner?
