"If you build it they will come!" OK, how are you going to staff it?

I have a specialist here who came from Beth Israel, her biggest problem is getting competent staff!

From my experience yes and no. I got to the room quicker but not medical care. I will go to Leesburg if there is a next time.

I am not surprised about the staffing issue. I see allot of bad attitudes and lack of responsiveness in a number of medical offices in TV. The exception seems to be the professional, courteous and able staff. Luckily I found a couple.

I thought it was interesting that at Mayo they have 28 operating rooms and do about 100 surgeries a day.

Are you referring to travel time being too much? For some parts of the Villages the travel time to Leesburg Regional is about the same as TVH. In fact in some parts of the Villages I think it would be an easy 5 min less to Leesburg.

But if you are on Medicare and using The Villages Health then if you get admitted a The Villages Hospital a Villages Health doctor will be managing your care instead of one of the hospitalists. That worked out pretty well for my wife.

My wife's trips to The Villages ER have all gone well with prompt attention and admittance to the hospital. We'd go there again.

Perhaps I should have used the term "closest hospital".

I agree, my wife was also very sick and was told to sit and wait, for over 4 hours. NEVER AGAIN this ER should be closed!

Now there's a real bright idea----37,984 ER visits that will now go WHERE??? A certified stroke center in our backyard servicing an aging population---yep, just close it. 2 cath labs performing 5000+ procedures/year---yeah, who needs THAT????
Oh, and right now at 7 PM in high season the ER wait is 35 minutes.

Please have just an inkling of what you are talking about before spouting nonsense.

And just for the record, I'm not all that impressed with the ER either----but we need it so let's fix it.

ER Dr.s are contract Dr.s who only work there one or two days a week. They will never see you again do don't care. Husband came i via ambulance, ER Dr. ran a blood test and told us he was fine and to go home. Problem was he literally couldn't move. His muscles weren't working. Dr. couldn't care less said to carry him out. I refused to even try and called our Dr. who talked to the hospital and he was admitted. He had sepsis and died in Hospice 4 days later. I will never go there. ER is terrible. Upstairs is fine, but not ER. Go there at your own risk.

"They will never see you again don't care." Your remark is offensive and clearly so wrong. I happen to have ER personnel in my family. ER personnel are the people who keep you alive and stabilize you until further medical help can be provided.

You have obviously had a traumatic experience, but please do not label everyone in that category.
