FMHS is crying because Reid Hospital wants to expand their facilities here.Well to the Board and Director of FMHS,get with the world of competition that the rest of all other businesses have to face.I would suggest the Board and the Directors and other management take a pay cut,and try to bring in better services and doctors.Take care of what you got or lose it.

When the medical profession becomes a competitive business, we're all in trouble. Is it such a sick world that hospitals have to fight for business? Fayette county is such a depressed area, how do they figure to make any money off of our sick? Oh, I know, it's all that medicaid and medicare handouts we get down here.

Puzzling to say the least.
Stay local

It would be nice to stay local for specialt
y care instead of being referred to Indianapolis for things not offered at Fayette... And this would mean more jobs and a boost for the local economy.

This is where you are wrong, Reid Hospital is a "for profit" hospital. They do turn people away who can not afford to pay. Fayette is a "non-profit" and must take a certain number of patients who can't pay. This is why FRHS is calling foul, they feel that they will end up with only the ones that can't pay while Reid takes all the one that can pay(insurance).

I stand corrected. But, then, again, our wonderful re-elected President is gonna force us all to have insurance. What then?

Fayette Memorial Hospital has the perfect location and has the ties to the community. Has been part of our community for years!! Again like everything else the board and ceo became corrupt and now we got what we got. Go back to serving the community and let the nurses be nurses that care and dr's be dr's the doctor people.....oops guess that not going to happen for got about Obama care and the corruption with the hospital board and executives. So sad.....such a great community!!

People despise Fatal Memorial for all the goings on in the past; and yes, there has been a bunch of it. You have made your bed so shouldn't you have to lay in it? You have let people die who could not pay; you have been guilty of malpractice over the years. I think their will be quite a few who will say the same thing.

This is why you cannot compete with Reid, people are sick of your A**! Just say'n!

OMG!!!! We sure as heck wouldn't want our working poor citizens to have HEALTH INSURANCE, now would we???!!!! That would be a TRAVESTY!!!! God forbid the working poor (which is most of those working in C-ville) be able to see physicians, not just the ER. God forbid they be able to get their maintenance medications!!!! We don't want that!!!

You are sick and cruel Doctor Ah Oh.

I think Fayette Memorial made a major mistake when they made it where you no longer see your doctor, but you see whoever is working at the time.

Harp all you want, Obamanator. It's one thing to tackle the healthcare system to lower the costs and another thing to FORCE people to pay a FINE if they don't have it. The 'HAVES' will still get the best care while the 'HAVE NOTS' will still get whatever is left. Obama is only fixing up the blacks, latinos and aids carriers.

All I got to say is when our goverment officals start to pick and choose and take a protectionest attitude our little town will never start to grow again. I dont know what they are afraid of this hospital will plug along as it has forever.

FRHS does not want the county to rezone property on east hy.44 so Reid Hospital can build a new office complex to house mor Doctors.

Reid is not that great of a hospital either,but I guess compared to FRHS, it has more physicians and nurses...and much more specialists.
We did have some good doctors here...and there are a couple of them left..but the incompetent Board and the lousy Administration chased off all the good nurses and dotors.
Now with Dr.Jag Patel leaving, the floors would be pretty empty.

Before spouting your stupidity you might want to do some research. Reid Memorial is a NOT FOR PROFIT hospital.

http://www.reidhospital.org/index.cfm...

Today, Reid Hospital boasts numerous national accreditations and is a not-for-profit 207-bed regional referral medical center serving east central Indiana and west central Ohio. Reid's service area is home to about 280,000 people and includes five Indiana and two Ohio counties.
Reid Hospital is accredited by the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP), the Indiana State Department of Health, Medicare/Medicaid, American Association of Blood Banks, and the American College of Surgeons Community Cancer Program.

Once again the illiterate and ignorant of this city have nothing better to do then collect their welfare and government handouts and spew disinformation on Topix. Fayette Memorial *FRHS* allowed David Brandon to run the facility into the ground and walk away with a few MILLION dollars that he and his wife Peggy had stolen from scamming the Brookville Clinic. No chargers were filed because he had information that several of the hospital board members had also lined their pockets and he threatened to take the entire board down with with. The Fayette Memorial Foundation once had millions of dollars in it and Brandon and the board raided it and then left it with barely any money in the accounts.

Anyone that objected in upper management that questioned the ethics of Brandon was made to either resigned or was fired. Now Brandon is doing the same crap in a hospital in Iowa. The best thing that could happen is that FRHS to be taken over by St. V's and Reid Memorial allowed to open a larger facility here in Fayette County.

FRHS is a dump and it is all thanks to the adminstration running that place.they treat thier employees like dirt and I hope they close the shit hole down remember this is a small community and if you screw over a employee they will tell everyone they know and all thier family and friends and everyone will go somewhere else for their health care needs so they cut thier on throats by doing this.I will never give frhs a dime of my money i go to Reid or 44 i welcome Ried here if frhs did a good job they would not have to worry about Ried taking thier bussiness but they are a joke from the nurses to the doctors to the slop the dietary dept serves.
