If I hear We've only just begun again, I am going to run off the road and put myself out of my misery. PMC is a good band aid station. Its not like there finding a cure of cancer or treating rare diseases. but they are better than Mayo Clinic, John Hopkins and the Cleveland Clinic. I'm waiting for them to do a face transplant. Maybe they can start with Juanita and Walter.

Juanita. Do you seriously believe that the people of pike county buy into your shit???
Come on!! And I know you have mike Patrick or someone else in IT reading topix. How do I know?? Because I am actually higher in the food chain than your everyday kitchen worker or housekeeper and I see you and that so called Dr Johnson, Terrance, Walter, Pam and all the other admin staff nearly everyday. I love my job because of my employees and freinds but you all make me sick. Stop worrying about stupid shit and do more for patients. Stop lying to everyone and trying to make us something we aren't. Pikeville is a speck on the map. We will never ever be a Mayo clinic.

Yes, but in this rural area just making it to the playoffs is reason to celebrate.

walter seen that the mayo clinic was #2 on the list and since thats where he goes to get dr there he thought it said pikeville medical center he was confused its about time walt that you give your employees a raise instead of all these bounus because once we get maxed on our hourly pay we do receive a bounus right you take care of your nurse's so why dont you drop a dime on your people like in housekeeping or kitchen worker's even maintenance worker's they work just as hard but we dont have the education but we deserve more money since we ONLY JUST BEGUN

The employees of Pikeville are spoiled, the hospital could be incredible if they had employees that truly cared about their jobs. They are ten deep in each position and need to have a reality check. I would fire 30% and make everyone do their job.

I do not understand the logic here. Not even in the top 200 does not sound like making it to the playoffs.

PMC is a deathtrap. They give morphine to anyone who says they are in pain upon entrance, give you some pepto bismol, an aspirin, and a band-aid and send you home, if they do not kill you first with botched routine medical procedure. PMC is just like everything else in this area: shiny on the outside, rotten and broken apart inside.

In fact PMC is so good there rankings have an averake percentage score of 25%

http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals/pikev...

If you were sick would you want to be treated by a hospital who cannot get even half-way to being the best? They barely break a quarter of the way. This means 75% of all hospitals in the country are better. That is pretty dismal.

National Hospital of the Year by American Alliance of Healthcare Providers is complete BS. First of all this is an award that is applied for and is not even publicly posted and the only source for this information is the Pikeville Medical Center. From what I have seen in the few articles that can actually be found, several hospitals claimed to be number one, two, or three on this list.

Best places to work in Kentucky? I'll bet it is. A job where you do not even have to be half-way there to anything that could be called excellence.

The local newspapers have been reporting lies based only on what the staff of the hospital in question have been telling them. No one is saying PMC is the best except for PMC.
