At a public meeting held by a state legislative committee on Oct. 20 in Fletcher, critics of Mission Health System's expansion plans released a recording in which the company's PR executive Janet Moore, in comments to a professional group, said that Mission does have a monopoly in the area and is the "500-pound gorilla" in the room. Today, Oct. 21, Mission announced that Moore has resigned and that her views "in no way represent the beliefs of Mission’s Board, Leadership, employees or physicians." The full release:
“Janet Moore’s comments at a recent presentation to a professional audience were ill-advised, and she apologizes. Ms. Moore has tendered her resignation and it has been accepted. The views reflected in that presentation in no way represent the beliefs of Mission’s Board, Leadership, employees or physicians. Mission remains committed to serving the residents of Western North Carolina with humility and respect.”
