THE cash-strapped Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. has hired former KSPN reporter Jeannette Rocher to be its public relations officer.
CHC, Aguon said, needs to “relay our message most efficiently to the public.”
Rocher used to cover government agencies and community events for KSPN.
Now that they have a spokeswoman, Aguon said he hopes they can be more transparent to the people.
Aguon said the CEO had been bringing up with the board the need for someone who could help CHC reestablish better relationships with the public.
Then-CHC chief financial officer Esther Muna also believed that the hospital needed a public relations officer.
Before it became a public corporation, the Department of Public Health’s public information officer was Roxanne Diaz, now the corporation’s public health division director.
In a telephone interview last night, Rocher said there has been a lot of misinformation about issues facing the hospital.
She said hospital staffers themselves do not know what is going on and this is why CHC needs somebody to take care of its internal communications as well.
Rocher did not disclose her salary but said her position is funded by a federal grant.
She said she will also help in the public awareness campaigns of CHC’s Division of Public Health.
