Actually, the rankings concerned the health of the citizens in the 88 counties, not the quality of the hospitals. The rate of morbid obesity was a significant factor, for example. People choose to cram themselves with their four favorite food groups: sugar, salt, grease, and alcohol. Add stupid, illegal, rampant drug use to that, and you find bad health behavior. Neither SOMC or KDMC can be held responsible for that behavior.

I hope KDMC keeps expanding in Portsmouth: more jobs and more trashy dump-houses demolished on Scioto Trail.

I'm not a fan of KDMC having had some bad experiences with them (other than the heart care part of the hospital) however, in a pinch I'll happily go to the new hospital rather than SOMC. That dump almost killed me back in the 90's over a simple asthma attack and did my next door neighbor in when she had gall bladder surgery (she was quite healthy otherwise and only 40 years old, so not exactly a high risk patient). I still will go to OLBH when I have a choice, but I'm glad that Portsmouth now at least has a chance for better health care.

Gary, where did you get this info? I'm having surgery there next week!!
WSAZ did not say the health care at SOMC is the worst in the state. Gary was confused. I saw the story on WSAZ,. It was about the state of the health of citizens. Had nothing to do ith any hospital.

I have been treated at both hospitals over the years and I prefer Kings Daughters. Several years ago I was in a car accident and had a major injury and SOMC sent me home, I could of died from it. I don't trust the ER doctors at SOMC because they are usually just passing through here onto bigger and better things.

I would take my chances at SOMC. Over the years, my family and I have been treated by both organizations and the care at SOMC by far outdoes the care at KDMC. Besides, SOMC helps out the community A LOT, through volunteering and donations thens of thousands of dollars to local charities. KDMC can care less!

<quoted text>Did you find that the SOMC ER guys spin you off to specialists (in town), that seems like it had noting to do with what you were there for in the first place? There's much more but that's enough for now.
You and I didn't go to medical school so we don't know the answer to that, but granted, it had everything to do why you went in the 1st place.

Does not matter if my surgeon is good and know what s/he is doing, just so s/he does the local playhouse every year and donates to the community, that will halp my medical needs. hah..........

Look at the people who don't get better and live longer in Ptown, not volunteerism, fruch peut..........putz.....

Take your chances, die early, less to worry about......hah....
Charity work is just a "plus" and not a contributing factor as to why I'd go there instead of KDMC. SOMC has state of the art equipment and up-to-date education for providers. No doctor, no hospital can save EVERYBODY. When it's your turn to go, it's your turn to go. If you're referring to medical errors that cause death, you're sadly mistaken. SOMC leads area hospitals in safety.

I'm not sure what being on their "dole" means, but anyway, if a person goes to the ER for neck and jaw pain, he/she can be referred to a heart specialist. For the layperson, it might not make sense. See where I'm going?

I guess you have good and bad doctors everywhere. I had surgery at SOMC and Riverside, never had anything left inside me, that I know of anyway. Good Luck to you with your surgery.
