Second time in one year
Phoenix Catholic Healthcare West
St. Joseph Hospital
Bestowed Marketing Sociologist worst PR pracitces

In July, Phoenix's St. Joseph Hospital, part of the Catholic Healthcare (no such word) West organization, mixed the identity of two patients, one who died. For a week they continued the mix up to the family and the media.

Five months later Phoenix Catholic Bishop Thomas Olmsted pulled the hospital's "Catholic" standing after an alleged abortion was performed at the hospital.

The hospital has the same problem it did in July; its Chief Executive Officer Suzanne Pfister can not apologize and apparently has a problem with misandry. For a quarter of a century, St. Joseph's has had NO men in its public relations department.

Here's how the local newspaper reported the dispute between Bishop Olmsted and the hospital, "
The bishop wanted the hospital to give him more oversight of its practices to ensure it complies with Catholic health-care rules; provide education on those rules to medical staff; and acknowledge the bishop was correct in the dispute over what he deemed an abortion."

Sounds like Pfister had a problem meeting with the bishop. A true misandrist?

So, for the second time in a year, Marketing Sociologist points a finger of terrible, deplorable public relations practiced by St. Joseph Hospital in Phoenix.
