Putnam County Board Of Health Clashes With Putnam County Homecare And Hospice

4/19/19 – 5:13 A.M.

The Putnam County Board of Health recently seated several new members, but that hasn’t settled contention in the ranks. The Putnam County Sentinel reports a nearly four-hour meeting Thursday highlighted some deep divides between the board and the administrators of Putnam County Homecare and Hospice.

The newspaper says much of the meeting focused on whether Homecare and Hospice can create its own supervising board. The two sides also clashed over the organizational hierarchy. Health board president Matthew Herman says a flow chart that lists Homecare and Hospice on the same level as the Health Commissioner is flawed.

The organizations are also at odds about when and where to meet. After much back and forth the board tabled that issue.
