It’s a new year and a new name for Booneville Community Hospital. Effective January 1, 2014, Booneville Community Hospital becomes Mercy Hospital Booneville. Mercy has entered into a lease agreement... more with Booneville Community Hospital, Inc. that becomes official on New Year's Day. Mercy has managed the facility since October 2013.
“By being part of a larger system, we will work with the local team and commit the resources and expertise necessary to expand and enhance the delivery of care to the Booneville community,” said Ryan Gehrig, Mercy Hospital Fort Smith president. “Mercy’s goal is to make health care available close to home by bringing additional services and providers to the community.”
In addition to its faith-based values and reputation for excellence, Mercy brings to Booneville an array of resources that most community hospitals don’t have. These include an integrated supply chain that provides for value-based purchasing as well as important technology like an integrated electronic health record (EHR). An EHR makes patient information more readily available to physicians, which helps prevent unnecessary treatments and duplication of expensive tests. Mercy’s EHR will go-live in Booneville in June 2014.
Opened in 2008, the Booneville hospital includes 25 private patient rooms with a 24-hour emergency department. It offers an array of medical imaging services including x-ray, computerized tomography (CT), ultrasound and bone densitometry as well as laboratory services and specialty clinics.
Mercy Fort Smith already operates three critical access hospitals in Ozark, Paris and Waldron.
If I could give -5 stars I would we have been here for 4 hours and all they did is a X-ray no one checked on my daughter or anything claims that 5 emergancys came in and there has not been any one cme... more into the er that we have seen..... Def. Would not go to this place again even if my arm or leg was cut off.......... Do not go.....
I'm a veteran first and foremost, and if you have any experience with the VA it's like pulling teeth to get an appointment or see your primary care team for a health issue/concern.
I go to... more this hospital quite a bit because it's in my town and I don't have to travel an hour to a different facility. I also understand the craze of prescription abuse by some people.
To make a long story short, after a week of vommitting and serious pain on my right side, the nurse from my care team instructed me to go to the ER. First of all the staff like to gossip about the patients, they gather at the reception desk and laugh and giggle. I've witnessed on multiple occasions the DR. Was on Facebook scrolling through her timeline.
The wait times are ridiculous, the times I have gone I've been there for a minimum of four hours. Their go to excuse for taking so long is we're busy.
But here is the icing on the cake, I go there because I'm throwing up for a week, and have this incredible pain in my right side. After tests and radiation they tell me I have shingles, which I don't, then it's kidney stones but not the kind that cause pain. So taking a med for shingles a condition I don't have made my symptoms worse, so I go back and I'm literally in tears cause I'm hurting so bad and they gave me toradol which did nothing for me and I brought that to their attention, and the DR said and I quote "Due to a new state law we are longer equipped with narcotic pain medicine and we can no longer prescribe any narcotic pain medicine. Which is a lie, in addition to the nurse telling me that none of the Drs are emergency room physicians or trained as such.
So the next day I called and made a complaint about the staff, low and behold my wife just went there, and because I made a complaint they treated her like absolute garbage. So not only did I call and hurt miss Wilma feelings (the nurse in charge) I went and got my wife and hurt everyone's feelings who were working there, they said we're calling the police and I said ok I'll wait until they get here and they immediately got my wife her discharge papers.
So in closing if you value your life make this place your very last resort.
