The ER staff handled the admittance procedure, so I went directly by ambulance to a pre-assigned room.

The other thing that worked better at Ocala Regional was getting OUT of the hospital. My last time at TVRH I had to wait hours for the specialist and hospitalist to sign the discharge papers. I was by-passed for lunch because I was "scheduled for release any minute". At 7 pm the hospitalist finally signed the paperwork. At Ocala Regional the discharge was done promptly during the day.

In my opinion, part of the problem at TVRH ER with patients waiting for a room is the inability of patients occupying rooms to get discharged.

The only downside of going to Ocala was the recommended followup was with an Ocala doctor rather than my regular doctor in TV.

I just went to the Summerfield ER on Sat with an injury to my ribs. Saw a dr, had xrays (only a muscle pull) and was discharged in an hour. Very professional operation.

It is 441 Urgent Care. Just like the highway number. Yes, they are very good. I like the 441 Urgent Care at Colony the best.

[QUOTE=NotGolfer;1615785]This is something I wish I'd written down but didn't. I know there are "urgent cares and then there are urgent cares" in our area. I've gone to Paramount in the past but it seems that someone mentioned there is one that's affiliated with TVRH. Is that correct?? I thought I'd read somewhere that
Response, from Brawney123

At this time, I can only tell you my experience. The Villages Hospital on 441, Spanish Springs, the Emergency Room is the most &%$%&&*(((( up place imaginable. They almost killed my wife and then at the place they call the hospital, had her for 6 days and it was the most DISORGANIZED AND terrible event medically we can imagine.
There is another emergency care on 466 east near Rolling Acres road. There is the Hospital in Leesburg. Will know more later, but WOULD NOT GO TO THE VILLAGES HOSPITAL, IN SPANISH SPRINGS, ON 441. 411 Urgent care on Old Camp road, near Sumter landing is OK. Check them out and get their hours and be prepared because when it is an emergency, then you need to go and not be confused. Another item, the EMT units do not come out first, they use FIRST RESPONDERS,!!!!!! THE FIRE DEPT. We are so disgusted with so much of this unknown crap and poorly defined and lack of qualified people. in the loop. On this site, you can private message to me, to talk more.

The first responders, the Fire Department.... those are the paramedics...... more highly trained than EMTs. That is why they respond first..... they triage the patient and determine the next course of action

Guess you didn't read ALL of my comments here. I was asking about Urgent Care facilities BUT had my answer so everyone following is giving more their opinions (which wasn't asked for). PLUS I can tell you that in the past I have experienced both an ambulance ride/ER here in T.V. I've also been a patient in the hospital. I'm sorry you didn't have a great experience BUT I did. I just had an app't with a new dr. the other day, whose from NYC. The comment from them was "You will find this in about every hospital facility throughout the country!" After I told her the "general concensus made on local social media (NOT mine). I agree....having lived in a couple of place up north. You'll keep hearing the "good, the bad and the ugly" depending on the individual.
