I've seen a series of advertisements (both on the PO website and in my mailbox) for the Fulton County Medical Center that use images of unhealthy, morbidly obese employees.

Are these folks supposed to reflect the quality of healthcare than I can expect from FCM?

Hard to believe - we live in an area where obesity is a major problem, yet these disgusting pigs are supposed to be the "face" of healthcare?

Why not go for the full "Fulton County Effect" -- and show the fat employees smoking cigarettes?

Are there NO healthcare workers at FCM that aren't morbidly obese?

Poeple have to trust these employees with their lives - how on earth can these fat slobs be used as representatives of a health care institution???

They don't want you to feel out of place when you waddle your fat ass through the doors.

If someone enters their institution, arent they just happy to be saved by these employees...obviously, the patients are more unhealthy or they wouldnt be patients. The fatties are insured and working...

Are you such a slim exciting person that you can point your finger? Remember when you are pointing 1 finger at someone there are 4 fingers pointing back at you..... Just because someone has a weight problem does not mean they do no know to take wonderful care of someone who is a patient. I have been in at least 3 hospitals, many persons taking care of me. All of them wonderful people, some of them larger than me, some much smaller than me, I don't give a spit about their size, only how much they take care of me. Myself, I was an EMT for 20 years, my size had nothing to do with how well I handled a patient, I have a relative in the nursing position, she is NOT obese.....Are you yourself such a shinning example how someone should look that you can put yourself in their place and do the jobs that they do???????

You missed the point.

Its about using unhealthy, morbidly obese people as advertising mascots for a healthcare business.

Thats like using Charlie Sheen to advertise abstinence.

you are as full of shit as a Christmas Turkey. Why would they use slim provocative women as the ones working at that facility? That Hospital is a wonderful place to go when you kneed help. They are very caring, they do not look down on anyone, they make you very comfortable, Try it sometime. Regardless of what you might think of them or their advertisement they are all caring people, me I don't give a fig what they gook like, I or my loved ones only care of how they treat me/us. I live 19 miles from this Hospital, I live 27 miles from CHB. So were would I care to go.

Ah - who said anything about provocative?(is this how fat people see normal healthy people?)

It's simple - The ad campaign would be more successful if they used healthy-looking people to promote their business of...health care.

Doesnt that make sense?

How can I expect a person take care of me - if they can't even take care of themselves?

Just because someone is overweight, does not make them unhealthy. There are overweight people who are healthier than normal sized people (whatever normal means).

I guarantee the 300 pounder they used in this ad was FAR from healthy in any sense of the word...we're talking morbid obesity here - not just a chubby or big butt.

You should always trust people who like big butts. They cannot lie!

I feel sorry for you "tapas" evidently you were NEVER a patient in my care!!!!!! or your fingers would not have typed such a shitty message. I like people even people like you. THIS is what I was taught from a very young age. I was raised among Doctors, Nurses, Judges, Lawyers, Representatives, Senators, AND Funeral Directors. So, watch your mouth!!!!!
