LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Lee County leaders met today to discuss what's next for the medical helicopter program.
The big news of the day is the release of an interim report by the County Clerk's office, which is auditing the MEDSTAR program. The conclusions in the report are highly critical of what happened, blaming fighting among the senior management and bad decisions in the Division of Public Safety. The report goes on to say not sharing information with colleagues led to dysfunction, which led to the grounding of MEDSTAR.
Commisioners are encouraged, in the report, to hire very strong managers in the future to prevent the program from hiring a private company to restart the air ambulance program.
