Maybe Baylor will send someone up to fix the elevators.

It means that Wise Regional is scared of the new hospital in Bridgeport.

It means that the area is now big enough for them. They don't add hospitals in towns that have a small population.

Looks like Wise Regional is projecting into the future. Affiliating with Baylor Medical is a good idea for many reasons.

xocheeta,

If the area is big enough for both hospitals why did WRHS sell-out to Baylor? Why not just keep operating as they have for the past 50 years? What has changed in the past year that forced WRHS to sell to Baylor?

Baylor hospitals border on criminal with their treatment of patients. My wife had a miscarriage at Baylor Grapevine and they treated her like a leper. I had to fetch bowls for her vomit and took care of her. The only thing the nurses did was tell me to keep her quiet -- in an emergency room no less. No assistance whatsoever.

It is fitting that WRHS has this affiliation now, as I have received the same treatment there, too.

I can tell you what it means from prior experience. We will be paying big city prices at our small city hospital. And all the doctors that sign on with the Baylor system will have to increase their prices to the levels that Baylor dictate.

No more discounts when the doctor knows you cannot afford more than a $50 office visit.

9:47...they didn't sell out. Obviously you didn't read. There was no sale of WRHS. They became an affiliate. Which would be a sound business decision in the hospital industry. The Baylor name carries an excellent reputation in the medical industry.

Maybe you should check into their mental health services, because you are retarded.

9:47...no one said that WRHS "sold" to Baylor...pay attention before you speak!

WHRS has not sold out to Baylor. "Affiliation" is a contractual arrangement which under which WHRS pays Baylor for certain services, including consultation and referral, and gets to use the Baylor name and logo. Baylor gets the cash payment, referral rights, and probably some right of first refusal if WHRS should choose to sell in the future. But Baylor Medical is NOT "buying" WHRS, or anything like that, at this time.

Generally speaking, being affiliated with the Baylor system is a good thing.

The Baylor name may carry an excellent reputation in the medical industry but, the Wise Regional name does not.

The problem is Wise Regional is still in control. So, all this means nothing. They think if they throw around the Baylor name it will make them look better. HAH!

Maybe.... you should check into their mental health services, because you are retarded.

And just so you know, I am not 9:47

Exercise, eat a well balanced diet, and stay a way from hospitals.

Maybe they will hire someone to fix broken bones instead of shipping the patient off to the metroplex

Hey 3:19 PM,

That's a true statement. However, what does it have to do with WRHS?

3:19...Boyd football will always be better than Decatur, Bridgeport, Paradise, Chico, and Alvord football as long as J.G. Cartwright is still in Boyd.

You can't argue that.

Newsflash! Decatur football just affiliated with the North Texas football program. Now they can display the Todd Dodge logo on their jerseys. It means Story is scared of the new talent emerging in Bridgeport. You heard it here first, folks!

10:39am... Buy-out or affiliate, it is really just a matter of semantics. The local hospital board and administrators cannot handle the new oversized hospital, so they are bring in help. I really can’t blame them. They pissed off half of the doctors in the county, and now they are trying to bring in someone to fix it.

Now I am off to the funny farm.
