I have heard that the OB dept. will be moved to Laughlin. But that is all. Our healthcare has been sold out. We are in for a world of hurt in Greeneville.
It makes me sick. If you have been in the hospital lately, you know staff is very limited. The care is not the same. I guess we need to just pass by and go to Johnson City Medical Center. Is that what our town will have to do now?

I wanted to add, I have heard that a drug rehab and Physical Therapy dept. was going to be at the Takoma building so people would not have to go to nursing homes for therapy. I don't' think anyone knows what is really going to happen. The leaders from Johnson City know but they are not talking. I think they just do what ever they want when they want.

Dont worry presadunt Trump said we will all have the absolute best healthcare, the very best believe me, and the deduckables will be the lowest anyone has ever seen, ever.

Closing this hospital is a good thing, nobuddy liked it in the first place! Better to close the hospital and have great healthcare than to allow this disaster hospital to continue operating and everybuddy getting disaster health care.

Very few in Greeneville have insurance, so hospitals arenít a good business to be in around here, and republicans always prentend to pay for their own.
But hospitals know better when they are used as peopleís free healthcare.

I don't know what happen to Takoma, But if President and CEO was still Jack Wilson trust me Laughlin would still be Laughlin!!!!!!!!!! Jack always knew what was going on in the hospital. He never just sit in the office and not check to see if the job was being done. Chuck did not have a clue. I had head for a long time that Chuck would break Laughlin and he did. He is not a people person and did not care to be honest. Jack Wilson was a true leader. People respected him.
I don't know what Happen to Takoma. Was it leader ship?
Our care will never be the same. I hate this has happen but it can't be undone now.

oh ok, I had not heard about that, I had heard Greene Valley was going to support the Veterans. I had read that the VA was wanting Greene Valley for our Veterans because it was so close to J.C.

I guess if we want to get out of Summit we're going have to go to Newport or Morristown. Summit is sure ripping us off.

I agree!
People can't say they didn't see this coming; when corporations buy-up hospitals this happens in every state. But, no, it wasn't important then.

In a few years Laughlin WILL close also & we will be lucky if Johnson City hospital is still available OR we have to travel farther.

(Aren't they all owned NOW by the same Healthcare System?)

This is how different Ballard is to Laughlin... In October of last year I had an operation... I knew there was a remaining balance for the co-pay but never got a bill... then in February of 2018 had another MRI .... knew there was a co-payment due but never got a bill. In June needed another MRI and scheduled with Ballard - they called beforehand and asked for prepayment of this operation co-pay ($200) and if I would pay THAT DAY, they would give me a 10% discount. I asked about the other open bills and they said they have a special department working on "open invoices" as there are so many... yes - I got two bills for a total of $400 about two weeks later. BALLARD is about $$$$$... I guess Chuck Whitfield had enough money/cash not to worry about outstanding co-pays... Ballard wants their money NOW !

I went to JCMC ER. It was absolutely horrible. Sat for 6 hours. They took the druggies in first. The ones who were walking the hall laughing and on their cell phones. People were leaving They were so sick but got tired of setting there. JCMC is run by Ballad. So no different than Laughlin or Takoma.
