The head of Cook County’s public health system has hired a new top-level executive who resigned last year from a public hospital in Dallas that the federal government determined was a “serious threat to patient health and safety.”
Dr. John Jay Shannon was hired to a new $400,000-a-year post that includes overseeing operations at Stroger Hospital and ensuring quality and patient safety throughout the Health and Hospitals System as part of a reorganization.
While making the plan public Wednesday, Dr. Ramanathan Raju, CEO of the nearly $1 billion-a-year health system, defended hiring Shannon as chief of clinical integration.
“I am convinced (Shannon) is the right person for the job at Cook County,” Raju told the Tribune editorial board. “So that’s why I hired him to come help here in Cook County.”

This Dr. Raju has been a headache ever since the Cook County Health & Hospitals System Board brought him in from New York and shoved him down Toni Preckwinkle's throat over her objections. And now he's bringing in this guy with his Dallas baggage. Great. Preckwinkle needs to find a way to get him and his imported team out and get her own team of health managers installed.

$400k a year for someone who is a public menace? Seems about right for Chicago... Glad that joke won't be supervising over anything medical in nature. Oh, wait...

So, still no new hiring of MORE COPS to quell nigger crime? Thanks Crook County... Thanks...

I think Shaved is secretly a nice guy. He is promoting that Lisa A. Tortorello book again on his blog.

He comes off as a bad ass calling out the niggers and spics and Democrats but in his heart, he is a softy and a caring soul...

What a fucking joke. One or more of our corrupt politicians have a stinger in to hire this worthless prick. $400,000 a year for WHAT? No wonder this county is fucking broke. Obama only makes $400,000 a year as president. Jesus!!!

The connection between Raju and Shannon will eventually come to light.

We'll probably learn they were smoking each others' cocks in college.

And then we'll all be asking "Did anyone really think anything in Cook County was on the up & up?"

No one in the Chicago area or Illinois for that matter to fit the requirements?

Hey, Raju, go fuc*k yourself and your masters can go to Hell. Go get your shine box because that is all you are qualified to do.

You could come out of retirement. I think its safe to say people on this blog enjoyed your humor. If not thanks for all the laughs.

Dr. Shannon worked as an administrator at Crook County Hospital for 10 years before going to Dallas to destroy their hospital. So the doctor has plenty of Crook County connections for his new job. The Chicago Way.

Anyone who thinks Preckwinkle could do a better job in hiring can refer themselves to Mr. Masters---head of Homeland Security for the county---JOKE.
