Dr. Hardison had a full page article this week in the Greenville Leader.
He left out or twisted a lot of facts in doing so.
#1. He sits on the board of Trover Health Systems. I believe that a board member of one hospital may not have the best interest for another hospital.

#2. Correct that 79% of admissions to MCH came from the Trover Doctors.
He failed to mention that overall the admissions are down from the clinic Doctors by almost 60%.

#3. Ask any local surgeon how many referrals they get from clinic Doctors. Long time local surgeon Dr. Shuttleworth said his referrals have gone from six per month to zero since the Trover buy out. The others have received none. Patients that have requested a local surgeon for test or procedure have been told they would have to get that set up on their own if not going to RMC.

#4. True the doctors here do not have admitting privileges to RMC. That is not how RMC works. RMC uses hospitalist Doctors within the hospital to admit patients. Even doctors from Madisonville do not admit their own patients.

#5. He can lie and twist facts all he wants to in a newspaper, but any one can get the records from the hospital and see what happened financially and patient wise starting the month after Trover bought the Doctors.

AMEN!!! I am so glad that the community does not have their head in the sand and see the clinic doctors for what they are.

His printing the twisted facts about the admissions to MCH is enough to show just how much they lie. Yes they admit most of the patients to MCH. But the number of admissions are less than half of what they were before Trover.

They admit most of the patients to MCH because the clinic accounts for the majority of the physicians in the county. Simple mathematics. The same could also be said that of the patients transferred to Trover, that they transfer the majority.

I think more people in the county now know what the Trover buy out has done to MCH. Hope it helps people understand if their Dr. wants them to go to RMC it's because the Dr. works for RMC.

Then maybe the Hospital should have let Trover take over when they wanted, that would have been Equality right.OH that's right they would have had to change over the board seats. And why did the CEO of the hospital leave the day after the Court let hospital tax die? Was it because he wasn't gonna get a raise? Do you think the board members do their jobs? Just want some answers!!

1. Trover Health Systems never wanted to buy MCH.
2. Most CEOs only stay 5 years. He took a bigger better job closer to his family.
3.Board has done a very good job keeping the doors open on a hospital that has patients with no insurance filling the ER 24/7. Especially lately have they done well when you considered that a hospital from another county's goal is to take all the paying patients and they have the local Doctors helping do it. It has been posted and said time after time. NO hospital can survive without patients. You can't have a patient without having a Doctor admit them. It's true most admissions come from the Trover Doctors. But the most important part was left out. Since the Trover buy out admissions are down from the Trover Doctors by almost 60%. Good old Dr.B left that litle point out. MCH has hired 2 new Doctors for in house admissions and 2 new Nurse Practitioners in the county. So they are doing all they can to combat the decreased admissions from the Trover group Drs.

The Drs. that work at RMC do, but the Drs.. outside of that group do not have to. A lot of them just let the hospitalist handle it. My point being that Dr.B was saying they can't admit patients to RMC. That's true, but he left out the point they don't have to the hospitalist on RMC staff does it for them.
