Berkshire Medical Center and Canyon Ranch are partnering to offer "wellness programs" to help the "low income and medicall underserved" We all know that it just means more advertising to say about how great they think they are????? Do they think we are stupid? We all know that the emperor is not wearing any clothes.

who cares why they are doing it if you ended up feeling better. Anybody with an illness would gladly let them get press if the quality of their life was better.

BMC is a money vacuuming machine. When you see them advertising wellness programs read between the lines. Everything they do is about money. They may help you with your sickness or they may not. But either way they will pick your pockets for every nickel they can get out of it.

If BMC bought the funeral home across the street they could own you from birth to grave. Put in a tunnel and they could sneak their mistakes right over. If they buy NA hospital they will have an official monopoly.

Dear Carbon-Hellen,

When I wrote my opinion about Berkshire Health-Canyon Ranch partnering, I was outlining the obvious hypocrisy of the entire idea..More marketing, more hype, more well-polished deceit....

Honestly, I cannot imagine either any of the prominent individuals touting this "new benefit" of their "brainstorming "to receive primary care at CHP Neighborhood Health Center. That would be the ultimate photo opportunity, wouldn't it?

Bring on socialized medicine and get rid of the marketing people in all of the hospitals - Berkshire, North Adams, Baystate, Southwest Vermont, Albany Med, St Peter's, Ellis Hospital, Brigham and Women's, MGH, etc. The number of poor people in Berkshire County without primary care providers is astounding, and I would imagine that neighboring Columbia, Albany, and Rensselaer counties in NY and Hamden and Franklin counties in MA have the same problems.

I don't mind paying higher taxes if the money goes to help people who need services, but these "executive marketing directors" and "service line administrators" should be next in line for replacenent by voice recognition and computer-assisted technology.....as they are huge financial drains on these institutions and have absolutely NOTHING to offer the clinicians or the patients.
