Danville Regional Medical Center (DRMC) was purchased by Nashville, TN based Lifepoint Hospitals, Inc. in 2005….and problems soon followed. The first couple of years brought about a number of changes at the management level, including the departure of four hospital CEOs in just a short time. More importantly for hospital patients, DRMC was Virginia’s only hospital to receive a preliminary withdrawal of accreditation status by the Joint Commission.

Well, lets fast forward to today. How are things at DRMC? Are the wait times in the Emergency Department reasonable? Are patients receiving good nursing care while awaiting or recovering from surgery?

I encourage our many readers from the Martinsville – Danville region to share their experiences and impressions.
