The staff has no clue on how to run this place. Jeffersons ferry is no longer with Mather Hospital ,due to lack of knowledge of runing the company. The CEO/CFO hide issues from a board until they spin out of control; Thus ruining the place.

Response: That is completely false. Mather Hospital is still sponsoring Jefferson's Ferry which is a financially sound, well run organization.
