I heard on the radio the hospital is in dept about 1.5 million dollars. What is going on with that place? I think it's time for the county to do something.

It's not up to the county. any business can survive only if people pay their DM bills it's not a charity network.

What is the county suppose to do? If Baxley doesn't have a hospital we will all be in a mess. How long will it take to get you to an emergency dept if your having a heart attack or in a bad accident with injuries. Have you went to one of the larger surrounding hospitals lately for any type of care? If so you were asked for money up front before any procedure was performed on you or your family. No money, no service. Maybe that's what Appling needs to do. You know that old saying about you don't miss something until it's gone, well a huge financial impact for this county depends on this hospital staying open to provide jobs and also for future businesses to come to Baxley. Lets all pay our medical bills and the support the hospital.

The county is helping the hospital get the money it needs to pay the bills and stay open. So for your question what can the county do? It can do a lot shot term to keep the doors open after all it is a county hospital not a private one.

replace the board members and the hospital managers, and put people in office that know how to run the place, and stop using employees tax money to pay for things. the 1.5 million due is from taxes taken out and not paid in to IRS. It's not only people not paying their bills.

I agree with stone16, but also this is what you get when you hire and orderly (D.S.) to run a hospital. Yes ppl, don't forget he was an orderly and maybe a nurse at one time. Now, he's just a puppet! I think its time for an independent audit and an indictment from the grand jury.

Sounds like someone should consider a career change. I hear WM is hiring. They make everyone pay. That should make you really happy. Go for it, man. That Wal-Mart Greeter job has your name written all over it. Hell, put me down for a reference. You don't even have to smile at the "non-Americans" if you don't want to. As a matter of fact, don't smile at all. That way, you will have plenty of energy left when you get home to get on your fancy little computer and get on Topix and show everyone what a Mastermind you are. Geeze, have you even called Obama and let him know that "ppl need to getsome type of insurance so their bills will be paid"? I think you just might be one of the greatest thinkers currently residing on planet Earth.

if they sent everyone back where they belonged we would all be in a hell of a mess... this country was built by immagrints, we came here and took this country from native americans by force, who are we to say that no one else is welcome here... i agree that everyone who lives here should have to pay taxes but it isnt fair to make anyone leave, wether they be mexican or chinese or any other nationality... you think the pilgrims had "green cards" when they came here? i dont think so... they came, decided they wanted to stay and no one made them leave... who are we to do that to immagrints today? and i dont think that "mexicans" are the only ones who dont pay their bills, there are a lot of trashy americans out there that do the same thing... i am white and i dont personally know anyone who is mexican or foreign BUT what i know of them is they work hard and are trying to make their place in their place in this country... im sure there are a few (like in all races) that are trashy, but, hey, thats everywhere... theres no need to be racist because the hospital is mismanaged...

That is awful to say about the mexicans that are here. They work a lot harder than a lot of other races.

i hear that, offended... people seem to forget the fact that they are people too and i`d be willing to bet anything i owned that the people who are saying that call themselves "christians" and go to church every sunday... they sit there and pretend they are holy and right with God, but they sit down at the computer and bash people who are different from themselves (forgetting the fact that God made Mexicans, as well as themselves), teach their kids to be racists and bigots, but then they go right back to church...

I have to agree with at least some of what Stone16 is saying. Those of us who have insurance, also have some kind of copay. Which stops us from running to the emergency room every time one of our kids coughs or has a fever. But some of these people are up there once a week! Just yesterday, someone I know took their kid up there for a fever and a sore throat. Not even any terrible symptoms. Something you could treat at home, but why do that when you can go to the ER for free? Get all the meds you want for FREE? It's not at all just Mexicans. Like whites, some of them are lazy and some are hardworking. Same for any nationality. It's the SORRY people who are milking the system, white, black, hispanic, whatever. THAT'S the problem.
