After 18 years in Memphis, 5 in Nashville and 11 years in the Atlanta area, I can honestly say I've never seen any hospital with the excellent quality patient care of ECM.
My parents had to move to Memphis in their last years, and you cannot imagine the poor quality of healthcare--which deteriorated greatly with TennCare. I have no idea what frustrations their doctors face (with such a poor support staff), and I have no idea why they're practicing there.
I'm pulling for the new management @ ECM, but am especially pulling for their employees. I just don't know how such a new corporation can pull off their challenges unless they have other profitable hospitals to offset losses @ ECM--much less coming up with the funds to build new facilities.
