What's going on at AMMC. I hear a lot of our surgeons and drs are being fired. Among those Dr. Schecter, Dr. Branch and several others. Does anyone know anything about this?
really?

Hey Sappy Girl, you do realize people can leave a job own their own? They don't have to wait around to be fired.

4 were fired. They used every tactic possible to get rid of them...sham investigations, bad billing, you name it. These are great surgeons. Getting ready for merger with St. B's?

Has anyone noticed the new sign on 49S before getting to new GCT. Coming in 2013 NEW AMMC &St. Bernards partners in new medical clinic.
AMMC makes no money off these doc's that have been let go, they were paid 100% by the patient's and insurances nothing went to the hostipal...so they will bring in different doc's that will contract thru the hostipal that would be my theory anyway.
Exactly

Its common knowledge if AMMC isn't making a ton of money they will bring in other Dr's to allow them to.
Letting go of the fact they are losing great Dr's in the process. It's a political thing as with most all cases. NEA will soon be here and be a much better deal and give better choices for patients in some aspects locally. No one was fired, but AMMC will sure fire want to save face either
way.

They got rid of Dr. Schecter - he was one of the four docs- and now he's with NEA! Doubt NEA would take him if he wasn't going to make money for them. Some hospitals actually do want good docs.

The newspaper said the doctors from the clinic where Kemp, Shotts, Williams are will be moving there along with some specialists from St Bernards. St Bernards own the clinic they are in now anyway.

Williams is an royal pain in the butt and a d@mn quack. He has the nerve to bad mouth his patients right outside the room, and hardly pays any attention to his patients. And I wasn't there for "drugs" I was there for a sinus infection, and heard him saying some nasty things about the patient that had been there before me, and about me because I had just switched over from Hendrix to that clinic because of my insurance. He didn't even bother checking me out. He just had the nurse do it. Came in, asked two whole questions, and then griped that he had to write a script for antibiotics.

As far as Kemp and Shotts are concerned I have never had a problem with them. They have always been nice, spent time checking us out to make sure they were making the right diagnoses, and had good bedside manner, and been friendly towards my family. Also the two females who work in the night clinic at that office are ANGELS!!! I can't remember their names (I know one is a pretty blonde girl), but we have had to take my two year old for night appointments before and she was VERY patient and through with him even though he fought her hard lol (he does not like anyone looking in his mouth, was very sick and extremely cranky).
