We have been to both for about 3-4 days each and found both to be very nice. The food at Tacoma was better but I wouldn't say either hospital was bad. We enjoyed both as much as you can enjoy a hospital stay.

We have been to both. I would never go back to Takoma, especially for the treatment of a child. We had a bad experience there that required a trip to Johnson City Hospital by ambulance. It was a nightmare. I have also heard several other people who have reported bad experiences there. We have also had a bad ER doctor at Laughlin, but it was more of a personality thing. The care was fine.

If I could make it to JC, I certainly prefer them to either of the local hospitals, mostly because our local hospitals do not have a variety of specialty doctors on hand, but if you show up at their door they cannot by law turn you away even if they don't have the doctor you really need. Instead, they take you into ER, medicate you to the point that you can't function, then call an ambulance to transfer you to JC (more than $1,000). In my opinion, it's a real sham and a shame.

I have never EVER gone to any division of Takoma (Urgent Care, Women's Center, Industricare) but what they didn't screw up the insurance and billing. Every time I've gone, I've had to fight for months with phone calls and letters to get the mess they created straightened out. And they'll turn their own mistakes over to a collection agency in a heartbeat just to get out of dealing with it. They even tried to charge me for a pre-employment physical ordered by a company where I wasn't even hired yet! I've never had problems like this at my personal doctor's office or at Laughlin. They've got some serious accounting problems at Tacoma and I will avoid them like the plague in the future because of it.

I had the same experience with Laughlin. They wouldn't give me the results of my stress test after a heart attack until I paid a 200 dollar bill that I never received. They'll let you die without a down payment and a contract.

They found I had an inoperable brain tumor and gave me 6 months to live. I told them I didn't have enough money to pay my bill so they gave me another 6 months...

When you are unconscience or in a coma, does it really matter?

Perhaps you are confused. I don't know what you are talking about. Read carefully...... I said the last time that I was at Laughlin ER it was dirty, fillthy, nasty. It is the truth. I don't care if you like it or not! I posted it only on here. I don't know where the WJHL thing is coming from. I seek no attention, but I do have the right to state my oppinion. I think you need to grow up, you are the one that has a problem with it.:/ I think you have me confused with someone else. P.S. I have seen first hand that your grammar sucks.

Not only do you have a grammar problem, you also have a problem understanding. I don't have a problem with the hospital itself. I recently had surgery at Laughlin, which went great. I did have a problem with how NASTY the ER was. I'm a great person sweet cheeks! ;) You wouldn't be so offended if you didn't know it was the truth. I say take an English class, take a debate class, gain some class yourself, learn how to talk to people, and get your facts straight. Ladies and Gents, this is what is taking care of you when you go to Laughlin!!! Really, you sound like a 7 year old that has behavior challenges.:/ Bahahaha!....and you told me to grow up. Pshhhh!:D
