I,m disappointed in our community hospital. Tenova Jefferson Co.
My sister-in-law was admitted to Jefferson Co. Tenova. I was in the cafeteria and overheard the two Engineering supervisors talking about how the hospital was going down the tubes since the new ceo and Tenova had took over and how it is all now about the money. So makes you wonder how the healthcare is if the employees are saying this. I would like to let Tenova know about these guys saying this.Its as if they wanted visitors to hear. It is a bad reflection on the hosp. Which we have always depended on. Which may be right. Is more of a chain operation now as opposed to in the past a community hosp.

My family usually goes to JMH however the last couple of times we have been there it has been terrible. My family member had been tsken to ER per ems. The staff in the ER was very rude and acted lke they had better things to do (playing on their cellphones and talking about the party they had last night, inapproprate for the severity). Anyway my family member was admitted said he had blood clots. They treated him and he went home. two weeks later he was in ER in Knoxville with some severe anemia (6 pints given)and a Heart attack.

Tenova is the worst place you could ever choose if going in a Hospital,
All they are interested in is the money and if someone doesn't have ins. they (unlike other hospitals) they won't waste their time helping anyone to get on Tenncare.

This I know to be true because I had a family member that went thru that,
They demanded $15,000 up front to get in the hospital and then $1,900 for a Biospy,
All they could do was tell him what he didn't have but couldn't tell him his problem,
He went back to his Family DR. and he found it was his Heart which they never bothered to even check,
But the next day after leaving Hospital they called wanting more money.

This Hospital is in Knoxville close to Turkey Creek.

Every word of this is true and I consider them to be nothing but "TRASH"

Tenova bought out St. Mary's,Then changed the name to 'Mercy Hspital', Then to 'Tenova'(i think at one time it was 'Tennova'),
Now they are fixing to change it again,don't know what yet but you tell me why......
Is it because they are so Crooked they have to keep changing their name ?

If anyone believes Jefferson Memorial hospital is a "good" place to be treated, then you must be nuts. Don't let the little sign fool you; they do NOT do pediatrics, gastroenterology, orthopaedics or cardiology there. Sure, they MIGHT have a GI lab, or a cardiologist there, a couple of times, during the week, but don't think they'll actually admit you if you had something legit going on.

Additionally, within the past week, or so, they stopped doing ANY surgery, there. Mark my word... unless something drastic happens, within 5-10 years, that band aid station will be closed.
