Why is CMC opening a clinic in Monterey while the clinic in Crab Orchard is closing?(30+ miles and in another county verses 10 miles and in this county).Why?

I am so mad about this. I don't understand it for sure. This a BIG mistake on CMC's part. but nothing us little pee ants can do about it.

i dont know what the hell theyre thinking. why did the close crab orchard? the worst thing is that employees of the hospital have to find things out in the news and on topix. they dont even have the decentcy to send out a memo or anything about theyre decision and why

Maybe there is a greater need in Monterey.

It would seem the doctors and hospital in Cookeville could meet the needs in that area much better than CMC. There has to be some other reason.

Probably true, but maybe the Cookeville hospital isn't willing to do it.

Cookeville hospital is covered up with patients from Crossville,,CMC knows they are losing MONEY when people go to Cookeville or Oak Ridge, But the reason for that is, Sorry Doctors and treatment at CMC. Anyway the Clinics GET GOVT MONEY,,, Do I have to say anything else.ITS ALL ABOUT GREED FOR DOLLARS. Notice the EMPTY FLOORS at CMC. Lights turned out on an entire floor at CMC means PEOPLE WENT TO COOKEVILLE

I just think it is a disgrace to close a needed clinic (recently remodeled) and turn around and open one over 30 miles away. It doesn't make sense - Does it?

You may not give a damn now, but if you happen to need medical care I bet you will. It is a waste of money to close one clinic and turn right around and open another one not even in this county. WHY ARE THEY CLOSING THE CRAB ORCHARD CLINIC IF THERE'S MONEY TO OPEN AND STAFF A CLINIC IN MONTEREY?

The doctor that is going to staff it probably lives closer to Monterey. Dr.Lively was at Crab Orchard for a while. Who was the dr. that took her place there could be many reasons as to why they are leaving Crab Orchard. Cheaper rent for the building. More patients in Monterey who knows its their choice to open it were they want. I am sure they have a reason that suits them. Alot of things don't make sense anymore this just something else added to the list.

Dr. Joseph was the Dr who took lively place and she is going to the Crossville office. This is a bunch of crap! I called the hospital and complained. I know it did no good but I felt a little better.

This is a huge mistake. I love Dr. J and ALL of her staff. You will never meet nicer people!

it will be a nurse practioner, Chris Hicks, and Sara Coleman Lpn. Larry Reed, the retired doctor from Phys. associates will be the supervising doctor. It was in the paper. The Cnp and Lpn work the main clinic now.

reckon they had to hire an interpreter? Monterey has a latino ratio of 98.5%, so it might be hard to take care of someone you can't understand? Hey, an open job, anybody speak spanish?
