Great? Do they pay property tax on the hospital property? Or do we loose taxes now that the hospital owns it??
Hummmm, Non-profit status. Let us not forget that in Tuolumne County if you are a non-profit, you can have no money to purchase, expand, construct, etc. HOW can this be?? Different strokes for different folks????
This is the primary reason that Andy's closed.
He we go another traffic mess, as it is not bad enough?
this article was making me happy untill i read they were going to demolish the building.
why can't existing buildings do?
it just seems like such a waste and also more junk in our landfills.
I have heard rumors that nothing is going to happen until Greenley road is widened at Mono way, which means moving/ eliminating the Chevron building and the car wash.
Wow, listen to all of you complaining about the hospital! Some day one of you may be a patient there, and if they expand into the Andy's lot so they can have more beds available, maybe they wont have to ship you out because they are full! Right now, there are many days when a patient spends hours or a whole night in the ER, or gets transferred out only because all their beds are full. The only way to make more beds available is to move other services out to make space. Give them a break for once.
Great! Just what they need more of a monopoly
in the county. What we need is for another hospital
to open and give them some competition.
To top self. This is not The top reason Andys closed. How can you refuse a 26 million buy out? Good for Steve Anderson.
WOW why don't we get a NEW hospital? I will never go there again. I am out of the county all the way. Also if they are non profit, then how can they purchase more buildings? Great question SOS! Yes I agree the traffic will be a lot worse there, feel for all of you who have to travel that road. another good question Mickey. Do they pay property taxes on all there properties? If NO then who does?
In Tuolumne County, seniors out number all other age groups per capita & this move is in lock-step w/its demographics. This county has such a large retirement community, it rivals the states of Florida & Arizona.
I wasn't happy w/the closure of Tuolumne General & even less happy w/the only hospital in town forcing its dogma upon all who enter; I believe in the separation of church & Band-Aids. Yet being the largest employer in town apparently allows for a lot of influence- and it seems to help when you cater to the largest majority of citizens as well.
If I were a betting woman, I'd bet it won't be long before neighboring businesses "close" and/or relocate and Sonora Regional's top hat will own all the hotels on Park Place.
"the only hospital in town forcing its dogma upon all who enter"
Of all the lies I've heard about SRMC, this has to be the biggest. Good grief.
Ya not a fan of the hospital!!!
nothing but whinning. no real reason to complain. just needing to whine. another hospital in a county of what? 15 thousand, or so. who pays for that non profit? all of you complaining about the current hospital? andy's made out like a bandit, and the hospital expands alittle, so what. maybe there will be a special ward for whinners, because thats all i see posted here. i'm hoping it puts another 100 people to work.
It's pretty simple really. If you don't like SRMC, by all means, don't go there. I know plenty of folks who would rather pay the 40 bucks or whatever it is per month so they can get medi-flighted elsewhere. I, however, can't afford it sooo......yea I too get to go to the hospital/church, as do many of us. Some of the services don't work for us and others do. Yep, welcome to Earth.
I agree with Goose. Been to SRMC many times and NEVER had any form of dogma forced upon me or any other family member.
Ok, so they are moving existing services there to make more room for patient care. Its spreading out, not taking over. What should the county build there instead, another McDonalds? The comments are silly. To say this is the primary reason Andy's closed is rediculous. There are always posters who say "I would never go there"...well send them your name and they can post it at the door. When you need emergency care, they can refer you to your "never go there" post. Fruity...I am sure the existing building can't stay because it was a hardware store NOT a place to care for sick people. Good grief.
The fact is, Goose, on every wall of that hospital is a plaque that states their religious decree; Sonora Regional is owned & operated by the Seventh Day Adventist.
Please do not call me a liar.
@Mairalargo.......So they have plaques stating some of their religious beliefs on the wall. So what? They own the place! They can do what they want! And they do NOT force their beliefs on patients or staff. I personally know physicians at SRMC that are gay and/or atheists. They hire the best physicians they can find regardless of their beliefs (or non-beliefs)or if their lifestyles are not in accord with the Seventh Day Adventist church. They are simply trying to provide the best medical service to the community that they can. I only wish that the people who are happy with the treatment that they received at SRMC would speak up as loudly as the whiners and complainers.
tho i think it was a bad move to close the county hospital down, and i am sure the current hospital had a hand in that, my real beef was with how many new buildings get built here when there are so many empty ones around.
but i'm all about re-using stuff...recylcing, i cringe when ever i think about or see a show on how much waste we human are producing everyday...espeically the hospital, all i was saying is why couldn't they just convert the already existing building.
why is tearing down and starting over cheaper? that has to do with our society that has become all about everything being made to be disposable.
i have a BIG issue with that mentality.
The fact is, mairalargo, you made an untrue statement. Now, you can take that how ever you chose, but in my book, it's a lie.
Where's the impact report? Imagine what the added traffic will do to the already messed up intersection. I'm not even sure if there are any sidewalks or wheelchair accessible routes to there. Are they just going to add another bus stop, right next to all the others?
I have been at SRMC numerous times and HAVE never had their religious views forced on me. For those of you who prefer going out of county - nothing is stopping you. Just hope you don't have an immediate emergency.
I thought we all wanted more jobs for the area - additional facilities will obviously create more jobs - so stop ALL THE WHINING! And if Steve Anderson sold his property for $100 million - is that any of your business? And I AM SURE a hardware store converts nicely into a cancer center......great real!
And, one last thing, I am sure someone will post that Obama and the illegals have something to do with expansion!
As a long time, and atheist, employee of this hospital I find the assertion that we "force our dogma' a bunch of baloney.
Even as an employee, I've never had any dogma forced on me. The beliefs people have (patient or employee) are theirs and provide much comfort. The hospital Chaplain is a vital and essential part of our patient care team.
I'm not an administrator, manager, supervisor, Doctor, or Nurse or anything like that.. just an employee... and I like it. I'm grateful for the job, and the opportunity to live in this community.
Bottom line, you're responsible for your own healthcare, not anyone else.. so, if you feel like you need to seek healthcare elsewhere, do it.
