I don't know why Virtua would do anything to deter patients away from ANY hospital, especially when the seem/act like it is too much trouble to take proper care of the patients who do trust them enough to come there on their own only to be treated like they invaded their (Vitrua's) space. I know to this day if my husband had been treated like he mattered on that dreadful day October 16, 2007 he'd still be alive. So Virtua stop trying to monopolize the health care field when CARE IS NOT WHAT REALLY MATTERS here. I experienced the same when my 79 year old mother went to your hospital 3/9/09. My experience with a local hometown hospital is one that not only will I go to or refer anyone else to.

I work at DHLC. This is pretty bad that Virtua has to do all of this mud-slinging and what not. They get more buisiness then we do and it seems like they want a monopoly on it all. At DHLC we havent had raises for close to two years and it hurts financially. Maybe if we win this suit we can actually start getting raises and continue to work here and serve the community. Hell, my youngest son is a patient here.

Sorry, but I used to frequent that hospital. A few months ago, I had to call Health Services to complain and they sent someone out.
They thought I was one of their drug pushers, asking for morphine. They discharged me, without seeing a doctor or running any tests.
I went over to another hospital and turned out I was passing kidney stones and needed an operation right away. Thanks, guys.
