Nurses and care staff are wonderful!!!!!! They actually made my stay pleasant. Words cannot express how great they were. However, there is a flip side....the admissions staff was horrible. Not friendly, they were too busy eating to pay attention to the patient. I was terrified when I left the pre op appointment thinking this was the absolute worst experience I have ever encountered in a hospital. It was so bad I almost cancelled my surgery. If I had not been in so much pain I would have cancelled it. Luckily, the entire staff I had contact with on the day of surgery and during my recovery was great. I could not have asked for better care. I highly suggest terminating the admissions staff and hiring people that want to work and care about the patients. A hospital stay is so stressful and first impressions are so important to the patient. My first impression of Jackson Hospital sucked.....So my rating of this hospital is - Pre Op appointment and Admissions 0 stars - Surgery (including pre op staff on day of surgery), nursing and care staff +5 stars

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.
