MORE PROBLEMS FOR DANVILLE REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER

Danville Regional Medical Center (DRMC) was purchased by Nashville, TN based Lifepoint Hospitals, Inc. in 2005….and the problems have not stopped since! The last two years brought about a number of changes at the management level, including last week’s announced departure of the hospital’s fourth CEO since 2005. More importantly for hospital patients, DRMC was Virginia’s only hospital to receive a preliminary withdrawal of accreditation status by the Joint Commission.

Sadly, it appears Lifepoint’s biggest concern is not about providing excellent patient care but realizing a good return on its investment! Read this newspaper account.
