I’m not sure what all the bickering is about Baptist hospital in Columbus. Dad has pneumonia and has been checked in for a couple days. He is fine, just got sick all of a sudden. Mom was at Baptist during her terminal cancer/emphysema battle last year. I recall her Mom being put at Baptist way back when even and I would come visit her.
I would visit Dad at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville when he had some surgery years ago. That’s supposed to be the gold standard. I would visit Mom at Birmingham’s hospital, which is where many people from Columbus go for serious medical care and Mom went too. But she needed care in town and Baptist took great care of her.
Every time I experienced great care being administered at Baptist. From the cancer therapy room to all the nurses, everyone has been happy and wanting to help. Emergency rooms are first class in my view. I can call the nurses and doctors. They may be slow at times, who isn’t these days, and maybe there aren’t many specialists in town, but what is there now is pretty darn good I think.
And the supporting medical doctors (Dr. Rosenblatt and Dr. Overstreet) and pharmacist’s at Robert’s Apothecary in town are great too. Everyone is approachable and returns calls. That’s been my experience.
