Impassioned employees of Humboldt General Hospital (HGH) appeared at a special meeting of the Hospital Board of Trustees in defense of HGH Chief Executive Officer Jim Parrish. Perhaps the most contentious point made during the meeting was whether Parrish had truly resigned. The board was scheduled to review Parrish’s contract at the regularly scheduled meeting on Sept. 27. This item was tabled prior to the beginning of the meeting. Upon asking a board member why, the Sun was informed that Parrish had stated he would resign. However, at the time of the Oct. 17 meeting, Parrish had not yet turned in an official letter of resignation to the board.
