It was his brainchild to have a new hospital BUILT - not to actually design and build it himself. Are you the designated defend-the-hospital person on this site??
no sir smartazz I'm not, I'm not defending anything. Just stating the engineering facts.

You're right - there's a smartass in the conversation - I'm just not sure we agree who it is. The engineering facts weren't a part of my comment - just the fact that, as the Chief Executive of the hospital, he was the person primarily responsible for the idea of building the hospital, justifying its feasibility and selling the idea to members of the Board, arranging financing, approving concepts for plans, and on and on and on. I wasn't implying - and nobody expects - a hospital administrator to know anything about construction.

Look at the name who started this thread Rupert mcelvain. Rupert mcelvain has to do with a famous historical stock market transaction. What doctor in town has a MBA and alway discussing money? Dr. Michael Jones with Enclave Family Healthcare.

Dr. Jones is mad at the hospital because he left the hospital to start his own over the top business and it's not going the way he thought it would.

Wow. I thought those with a medical degree education would be very mature and not paticipate in such childish acts.

I wonder the real reason he no longer has privileges at the hospital?

Thats a lie. Most of the local doctors do have privilege there and take advantage of them.
So is that why patients can go for 24 hours or more before being seen by the doctors they are assigned to? Kind of hard to have faith in someone's medical abilities when they don't even bother speaking with you, the patient, or the patient's family.

The hospital wants to own every doctor and medical institution in town and does everything in their power to ruin those that don't come on board. Organized crime at its finest.

Doctor you are assigned to? Your own primary care doctor should be the one overseeing your care so its up to him to come see you. The doctors are given privlidges but the hospital doesnt dictate when they see you. If you chose to let a hospitalist see you and you are not satusfied then find a primary care doc.

When I was sick in OMHS, I was seen daily by a bunch of doctors I didn't even know. I didn't ask for them and didn't see the need for them. Most of them just stopped by for a minute or two, as if only to have a record of having visited me.

In addition to what was making me sick, they also said I had other medical problems. But those problems were very minor, and not at all the kind of thing you would go to a hospital for. Nevertheless, I got lots of unrequested treatment and doctor visits for them.

You should speak to your doctor about that because the primary doctor will ask for consults for other various problems you have. You may not have requested it but your doctor did. Ordering consults is very very common even if you dont ask for it.

Yes - very common indeed. It's one doctor helping his friend fleece the system by asking him to "consult" - he sticks his head in your door, asks if your okay, and then bills you handsomely for it. In turn, he asks your doctor to consult his patients - it's a viscous circle that enriches doctors with little effort on their part while our healthcare system continues to bankrupt the nation.

There has to be a valid concern to order a consult and it has to be documented in the chart. It may be something small but it has to be a valid reason

The hospital is on time, under budget and in strong financial shape. Barber is retiring at the end of July because he is 69 years old. The hospital opens June 1. If you think it is sinking then you best move from the area because the foundation is designed to be the best in the Commonwealth.
Rumors are what folks throw out when they don't know or care about facts and data.

I know for a fact that the new hospital had serious problems when they were first doing the steel framing. You can find an article about it in the WKU newspaper and on their online journal. Not to mention it was a topic several people had called in about on the evening talk show on the AM radio talk channel after it happened. Apparently a they have had problems with sinkholes and a large pile of steel fell into one of the holes along with an excavator. They spent a long time trying to get the excavator out with no results so they just backfilled it in. Now there is a million dollars of steel and an excavator buried under the hospital. The newspaper said that passersby on the road reported seing water spewing from a hole as if it were under pressure. So you wonder where the "rumours" come from? And as for the workers who claim to "know". Probably not. Most of them are too busy busting there asses on their projects to worry about everything that goes on there. So COULD the hospital be sinking? Gee I dont know. You'd have to ask the genius that decided to put a multimillion dollar hospital on top of a swamp and downwind from a sewage treatment plant. HMMMM.
