Central Health (AGAIN) siphoning money away from indigent health care....

"Defend the poor and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and needy."
Psalm 82:3

Any time Central Health makes the news, it's never good.  Yesterday, we attended an event where a broad ideological cross section of Austinites highlighted their failure to provide services in Del Valle while continuing to subsidize the UT medical school and building lavish buildings for themselves.  Keep in mind, the alleged purpose of this entity is to provide "indigent health care."

  • Central Health has been stonewalling activists for 9 months.
  • Del Valle has paid for facilities that have never been built.
  • CH has a $200 million budget this year.
  • CH building expensive office buildings instead of Health Care facilities.
  • CH gets federal $$$, but Lloyd Doggett isn't doing anything.
    • Ditto Kirk Watson...and central health is his baby.
  • According to several people at the event, the current CH board is stacked with Kirk Watson cronies.
    • The homeless are getting a few crumbs tossed their way for political purposes.
    • CH is involved in all sorts of things outside their charter.
    • "We break the rules all the time in Travis County."
    • Accountability, accessibility, transparency.
