Le Bonheur physicians meet with Methodist CEO, unsure they were heard


Angry about unilateral changes to their working agreement, more than 100 physicians at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital crowded into a meeting Wednesday, hoping to speak candidly to Methodist and UT leadership. People who attended say there was no acknowledgement that the changes made to the University Le Bonheur Pediatric Specialists group could have wide-ranging effects on the care children receive at the hospital. “Faculty cited specific examples of these effects and expressed frustration that they could have been avoided if pediatric faculty had been involved in the agreement formulation,” said Dr. Melody “I heard a lack of confidence in the Methodist leadership in that meeting,” she said, “but not the Le Bonheur leadership.”
