Thanks to our hospital's current CEO and board we have lost one of our most valued physicians, Dr. Stout. We have lost several other fine doctors as well. Dr. Langer "CEO" believes these doctors are easily replaced and he is right. Just wait and see what will replace them. Your CRMC HOSPITAL BOARD let this happen.
yeahright

Lmao US medical schools pail in comparison to most of those "foreign" medical schools. That's why so many AMERICAN students are getting their medical training in Europe.

Those foreign schools are attended by foreigners, so if that is what you want there you go. The US students attending those schools is because of there low MCAT scores.

I am so disappointed in the care our patients recieve when they go to the ER.Nothing rarely gets done for these folks.They end up going to another ER and lots of times they have been misdiagnosed.I have started sending our patients else where when there is a need for an ER visit.Also,I have stopped referring to orthopedics down there unless the patient requests to go there.

Munich University in Germany, Kyoto University in Japan, Karolinska in Sweden. These are all excellent medical schools that are comparable to (and in some areas, exceed) medical schools at Harvard and Yale so yeah. There's a reason that some people choose to go to medical school abroad and it has very little to do with not being good enough to get into one stateside. In fact, it's usually HARDER to get into schools in Japan and across Europe because most of them have much stricter admission requirements.

Most of your foreign docs are out of India and places like that. How many docs have a British accent in Cookeville. None.

My whole point is that we are losing a physician of the highest caliber. There are many great med schools outside the US. There are also some good foreign born docs working in our community. There are not many doctors who return to there home towns to practice. Especially one as gifted as Dr. Stout.

The leadership at crmc always has and always will be the problem. Linda Crawford should have been removed years ago.

CRMC is a business and that is all it is. I have heard Dr. Langer believes doctors are easily replaced from very reliable sources. There have also been some procedures performed outside of the hospital (ie. Tennessee Heart) that is costing the hospital money, according to the new leadership. The solution of course is to move all of those procedures to the hospital and OF COURSE increase the charges and boost that income. When quality personnel are leaving, all in a short period of time, there are serious problems! In the end we lose! CRMC is a business and that is all it is.

What about the so called leader David Phillips from the surgery dept. He has tried to screw half the female employees and screw over the others.

I just read an article On healthcareix.com where Langer states he envisions the Hospital partcipating in acquisitions, mergers, and joint ventures. Sounds like the guy hired by our crmc board of directors is wanting to sell the hospital and head back to New York with a giant paycheck.
WOW Really

You must be confused. The patients receive great care in the ER. Maybe they didn't get the pain killers they wanted or more likely you wanted..... but to say that things rarely get done shows your ignorance. The patients receive the exam and tests required and physicians and staff can not help if the patient refuses tests or admission. Not everything can be diagnosed in the ER. The ER is meant for acute or life threatening issues not to act as the primary providers. If you are working at a nursing home then maybe you should try calling the hospital staff and giving a report about what is going on with your "patients" and then maybe read the papers when the patient is sent back. Or better yet why don't you use your skills? If you are at a doctor's office then maybe you could consider not griping about sending patients to a higher level care since you seem to not be able to help them. No need in tossing your opinion in to patients care just because you have your underwear in a wad.
Amazing that you can be so opinionated on things you do not even know about......

Dr. Lenhart, who has been with the hospital for 17 years, is also leaving. It had something to do with the hospital buying TN Heart - same as Dr. Stout.
