Had Dr. Robert Simon, John Stroger's personal doctor taken Mr. Stroger to the hospital that bears his name instead of Rush Medical Center, Mr. Stroger may still be waiting to be cared for and wouldn't be able to do a little hospital bed campaigning today.
We at the Hell Hole are glad to hear he's ok... and going "full steam ahead" with his campaign. I got the fax this morning from his campaign office.
Dr. Simon made the right call and rushed Mr. Stroger to Rush Medical Center. Who has time to wait for care at the county hospital when you got a campaign to run. That's why Dr. Simon makes the big bucks.
Blognotes: Dr. Simon makes $391,550 a year with the county government at John H. Stroger Hospital as Mr. Stroger's personal doctor. Why didn't Mr. Stroger go to Rush Medical Center be treated? Sure doesn't show confidence in his own ship.
