Just like many have commented on over and over here on Topix, the St. Louis Post has an article about Southeast and St. Frances competing with each other and how much higher the medical bills are compared to those in the St. Louis area. It is a great read and you can track it down on the Post wedsite. Southeast and St. Frances and almost all the medical doctors in this area should be ashamed. And, I mean DEEPLY ashamed. Inferior care at higher prices, that is what you get in Cape.

Which hospital(s) in St. Louis are preferred? Barnes Jewish is a teaching hospital. I don't want a student doing hip or back surgery on me.
Question: Why are the two hospitals expanding their services into surrounding areas when they can't succeed with good patient care, etc. in Cape?

The Highest Power! A Top 100 Hospital! The Best Baby Deliverers in the World! The Best Weight Loss Institute in the World! Stephen and Jeannie had a vision, this is it. Congrats SFMC

Highest power made more money than SE but only gave 0.2 million more in charity care? Plus they spent 4times more in advertising than in charity care. SE's advertising to charity care comparison was nearly flush. This kind of blows SFMC's higher power-christian perspective doesn't it?

Why are the payments which patients owe SE sent to Barnes instead of SE?

SFMC pays so much better,but the patient to nurse ratio & management isn't the best...Financially I would have to choose to be employed with SFMC,but prefer Southeast. Currently considering putting income aside & choosing the better option!

Lots of former SFMC fed up with the money grubbing program. Working at SE and happy.

Read on and see how much Drury Southwest and Rust communications receives in advertising monies--it pays well to be on the board of SFMC

If you read the statements of the SFMC CEO it's hard to believe SFMC is a non-profit organization. I hope the authorities take notice. Seems like an abuse of this priveledge.

Seriously, look at how much both advertise. Billboards, TV , Radio and Internet. Look at the opulent landscaping and facility erection spurts these places both do.

Meanwhile a trip to the ER for a couple of stitches for your childs scraped knee costs thousands of dollars, that is utterly ridiculous.

People losing their homes to pay for medical bills, often futile after bad outcomes and they are building waterfalls in ditches. Explain this.

Is anyone really surprised at this Cape Girardeau
"Good ol Boy" network? I'm not. I'm really sick of this non profit Catholic bullshit. Just heard a radio ad for ND HS today. The hospital flies a advertising executive in from out of state each wk to work here. We must have some incompetent folks in MO since they cann't find anyone locally or in St. Louis to do the work. What a waste of money. Making my BP go up just thinking about it.

Another Good ol Boys news flash from KFVS.
Just turned on KFVS and lo and behold, major sessions of Sucking Up and trying to hide the truth of the newspaper article. If they or the Missourian were worth there salt they should have researched and broke this news. First commercial then was from SFMC Wait both get major revenue from both hospitals. Wouldn't want to piss them off would we?

SFMC and their CEO should be ground zero for the Presidents healthcare reform initiative. If ever there was an abuse of the publics trust and nonprofit exemption this would be it.

Would be nice if Rust Communications or KFVS would do a follow up on the article in the Sunday St. Louis Post--but most likely they both will lay low-really low.
