Bob McCaig severs ties with St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital transition committee

Bob McCaig left no doubt Saturday read here airing his disgust on the arrogance and sense of entitlement exhibited by a few at the hospital.

And now, McCaig has tendered his resignation from the transition committee established at the hospital to deal with the $100 million expansion/refurbishment.

Here is a copy of McCaig’s letter to President and CEO Paul Collins, the board of governors and Allan Weatherall from the hospital foundation.


re: rehiring of Paul Collins, President and CEO

The news of the recent actions of the Board of Governors of the STEGH in the face of municipal opposition is deeply offensive. The sheer arrogance of
entitlement which controls the thinking of the Board of Governors of our hospital boggles the mind.

I have lost confidence in the Board: to me it would not matter if the incumbent President of the Hospital Corporation could walk on water; he should still resign.
Regardless of the reason I refuse to accept the concept of ‘double dipping’ in our society wherever it occurs. It is morally repugnant and I cannot continue to
serve on the transition committee.

It is with regret that I hereby tender my resignation.
