A group of local leaders issued a report based on input from residents that listed systemic problems at Transylvania Regional Hospital. Owner HCA Healthcare Inc. disputes the claims.
My wife sustained a severe fracture of her femur just below the hip joint on 3 FEB. She was taken to Transylvania Regional Hospital's Emergency Department, where she received timely, compassionate, and professional care. She had very involved surgery to stabilize the fracture. The Orthopedic Surgeon communicated with me very well and did a fine job repairing the injuries and getting her on the lengthy road to recovery. The Med/Surg floor was her home for the next 3 weeks... and they treated her like she was at home. The level of care she received was on par with any other hospital we have been served by.
I have also been served by various departments of the hospital and have enjoyed the same professional, competent, and caring level of service in every encounter.
Would be interesting to know who bought HCA long before HCA bought Mission. Hint: Private Equity investment companies. And you know what they're famous for.
As to the facial surgery, you got lucky being forced to go to SC. surgery in general in Asheville has problems. But I have gotten excellent care at Transylvania Hospital myself. And the people I have known who went there did too. But I do think itd be a better idea for the community to buy it back. Not sure how it got outside of county control.
I have first hand experience attending with family, in person, regarding the care and staff at Mission -Transylvania. Surgery, radiology, ED, TCU and follow up with Mission doctors. In all matters the care received from the givers has been excellent. From treating MRSA, cellulitis, pneumonia, pre-op, orthopedic operations, and post op all the care received has been excellent. I have documentation to support what I say.
Documentation is necessary when alleging a patient has received sub-standard care as it is in stating care was standard or above standard.
Mission -Transylvania serves all of Transylvania County not just the residents within the city limits.
Keep fighting Maureen! You’re right
