Local Hospital

Looks like our corporate hospital has become part of a larger corporation. More shareholders to make happy. Believe me folks, this hospital's administration puts profits and its shareholders before its patients and staff consistently. If you don't believe it, call and ask for a price list of common procedures and then call a neighboring, non-profit hospital in another county and compare. You will be absolutely shocked and appalled at the fleecing that residents of Bulloch county are being subjected to. Outrageous prices for sub-par healthcare.

I could not agree less.

I have only the highest regard for the staff, facilities and the care provided by EGRMC.

Prior to her death a few weeks ago my wife had been admitted a number of times, mostly through Emergency, and had always received only the very best of care. Although her treatment was highly demanding, the competency of the nursing staff was never in doubt while at the same time there was always a smile and words of comfort. It takes a special kind of person to do such a job, and I feel so grateful that they are available when we really need them.

I am sure that the care she received extended her life, including the quality of her life, significantly. There were no “outrageous prices” and certainly no “sub-par healthcare” that I was aware of.

Since it became a private business EGRMC has greatly improved its services, as well as its standards of care, accommodation and medical equipment (and yes, even the food is good, the chef comes around twice a day to offer choices to the patient before lunch and dinner).

I would say that from the in-patient’s standpoint the facilities at the EGRMC are superior to those of Memorial Health in Savannah, and Statesboro is very lucky to have such an ever improving medical center.

The purpose of medical care transparency is to allow the user (patient) to decide what hospital to use and what price they are willing to pay for services. Had you called other hospitals before going to your local hospital you could have compared prices in advance and chosen the hospital you wanted to perform the service. It is not the hospital's fault. You made the choice. You were willing to pay the price.

Passin, glad your expreience with EGRMC was positive. I have had both positive and negative experiences - both through ER admittance. In one case the nursing care was very good; in the other it was only marginally better than totally unacceptable. Unless I'm going to die before I can get to Savannah, I will not voluntarily be an in-patient at EGRMC again.

What is it with Doctors?
August 14, 2007
I admire Doctors for the dedication and hard work it takes to get through school. I work in healthcare, so I choose to remain anonymous while I vent. Doctors do work hard for their degree, no doubt, but why would a person go to school for all of those years ...
