The hospital is a thing of the past. We might as well get use to it. They are losing a million dollars a month. The guy incharge see's the writing on the wall he has ask the board for a rasie and a better severance package. Go figure, Then you have the hospital in albany wanting to take it over. That would be a good thing for the avarage person here. Only trouble is no one here would have a say in it. A better thing. I encourage the local people to help albany get control. That really won't effect local doctors here they might holler a little, But that is just a show. Maybe after albany takes over you won't get shipped off to die.Maybe A little audit from the feds on the money flow their would help. Lets face somebody is running scared having the meetings in different places. Well good luck to the citizens of sumter county. God knows you will need it in the comming months. or years. After all you have a fine new court house. As sonn as figure out who left out the bricks and lord knows what else. The tax payers will be paying for that as well. Then the school board will hit you up again. The citizens sooner or later will have to have elections on everything. Powers that be will tell you that is not how it is. But guess what it can be.Now lets if this will get printed.

I totally agree with you on the hospital here in Sumter County, the head huncho makes over $200.000.00a year, something is wrong here, where is all the money that has been donated to start rebuilding???? has all the donated money gone to his SALARY????? and at the hospital, if a person (last name not smith or williams) or jones, if a person is 1 day late with a payment set up with the hospital, the citizens get sent to court for not paying... now, all the money the tax dollars from this county is raising, do we as the citizens get a break at the hospital???? hell, I would just settle for a little southern hospitality form the nurses at Sumter Regional. just to be even noticed that I am there would go along way. or just a little, hello, I will be right with you, would be fine also. most of the nurses really need a new attitude and a new face, because the face they have now is watching the knife in your back.sorry so grafic but this is the truth and many citizens know it and the nurses know it.so how much money do they need to keep up the with Albany???? we need Albany,,, we need new people here, we need new heads here, most of the citizens here want Albany to come and take over the hospital,

Albany/Phoebe just need to start over with all the personnel, starting with the personnel dept,if the girl in the personnel dept does not know you and you apply for a JOB, guess what??? you will not get called for an interview.emergency dept. nurses there, if they know you and if they do not like you, guess what??? you will wait to be seen for over 3 hours, they will ignore you, so lets see...... YES i agree, we need new people here in Americus. Sumter hospital, you better pay attention and stand up and be professional, because eyes are on you....

Oh Please, my experience at Phoebe was TERRIBLE. I would rather be admitted into Sumter Regional any day. The staff of Phoebe is terrible. The nurses had nasty attitudes, and the environmnet was not inviting. If Phoebe takes over Sumter Regional, not only would money be an issue, but also sanitation. If a person dies in the hospital or during the transporting process, they are called by God. Man has no control.

Sumter was just as bad, the old saying, is"you go in but you don't come out".....now, if a person in the hospital dies at Sumter, I am sorry, I disagree. The word is in Sumter, the docs, nurses did not take care of you.Where did all the money go to from DONATIONS????
