A Strong Hospital conspiracy? I knew it. No insurance, you're not going home?
Strong's version of patient-dumping?

I don't know, maybe it's due to 3rd-world medical care in U.S. urban hospital emergency rooms.

Either way, if I'm transported against my will, take me to Unity or dump me along side the road. At least I won't linger for 3 weeks, then die anyway. And getting dumped along side the road would be a lot cheaper -$75 plus $25 surcharge for a Carcass Removal Crew compared to tens of thousands billed from Strong.

Isn't that redundant?

Unfortunately, those huge unpaid bills rung up at Strong are ultimately paid for by other patients (proportionately). Or it becomes a total loss, and they dun the person for the rest of their life, eventually getting a court judgement (lien) against him/her.

The State of NY mandates by law that you can't be turned away from an ED, even though there is not a chance you can pay. I'm sure the ambulance companies get stiffed, too.

It could be redundant. I thought Unity was Parkridge nenamed. Correct me if I'm wrong. On the other hand, everything is relative. How does Unity (Parkridge) compare with hospitals in Fairport?

We don't have any hospitals here. We use healers (I don't think they're licensed) if we're really sick, otherwise the local Rite Aid for medical advice. They spend our tax dollars on the overpaid police force and festivals.

Healers would be my 1st choice, but in a pinch, you can't go wrong with Rite Aid!

<quoted text>I hate hospitals and don't care much for doctors, that being said Unity saved my butt(sorry Rhonda) twice in the last two years. Good hospital, great staff, food sucks, but a hospital where you can walk out of unlike others in the city.
Twice we could have be ridden of you....SOB! That place needs to be shut down immediately!

If strong did their job, the Rochester murder rate would be cut in have.
This statement points to how muddled you are. Really? Unbelievable.

We get booked for murder because Strong doesn't do their job well, and heal critically injured gunshot victims. Pathetic.

The torch for "Village Idiot" has been handed off to you.

Mercy Flight opened a ground ambulance in Batavia because the town of Batavia couldn't afford the union workers.
They might end up in Rochester now.
