My mom stayed at this hospital in East Chicago, IN. The nursing staff and cna's was great can't complain one bit about them, however the Discharge and Case Manager Jenn gave us the worst experience ever. I would never refer anybody to this facility, only because Jenn would give them bad information for checking out, nothing was done properly, wasted time, work pay and gas because of this lady. Jenn had my mother checked out way to early and now she have to do out patient surgery that won't be monitored by nursing staff, I have to watch her now and make sure she don't bleed out. Her medicine was not ready, so she had to go home without all of her medicine. This was the worst experience ever, thanks, to Jenn
Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
