Member for Murray Helen Dalton is calling for answers, following the second resignation of a general manager at Griffith Base Hospital in two years.
Last week, the Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) announced Greg Brylski would be moving on from his position at the hospital.
A similar announcement was made in February 2019, when Dr Elizabeth Harford resigned from the same position.
Mrs Dalton has expressed her dismay at the news of the resignation, which she said is becoming an all too familar sight at the hospital.

"He's just one person out of a few who have either resigned or been sacked, so we're wondering what's going on," she said. "We've got a number of people who are leaving. If they were happy, they would be working in that hospital."
Mrs Dalton said she has had a number of calls from concerned members of the community, who are wondering what is going on.
She said it is vital there is a consistent and stable workforce at the hospital and questioned why workers are resigning or being sacked.
"Here we will have a brand new hospital, but at the rate we're going we'll have no staff," she said.
According to Mrs Dalton, there should be more community involvement with the running of the hospital, and she suggested the creation of a hospital board featuring some relevant and skilled members of the local community.
"It's our hospital, it's our money and we'd like to have our say."

As well as the loss of staff, there are community concerns surrounding what services will be offered at the hospital once a major redevelopment project concludes, including hopes that it will see the return of a locally run kitchen and laundry at the site.
In particular, Mrs Dalton called for the development of a mental health unit to combat the high suicide rates in the region.
There is a parliamentary inquiry into regional health set to take place this year, and Mrs Dalton encouraged any residents with concerns to make a submission on her website before the deadline on Friday, January 15.
Speaking to The Area News, the MLHD said information on what will happen in the wake of Mr Brylski's resignation will be revealed in the future.
