Choctaw General Hospital is a new hospital in Butler, Alabama, that opened in April, 2012. The 25-bed critical-access facility is a division of Rush Health Systems and will provide needed healthcare options... more for the people of Choctaw County and the surrounding areas.
This is a bullet wound and Band-Aid hospital, meaning, if you need patching up, it will more than suffice. If it's life or death, keep driving to Meridian or Mobile. My mother went with a severe case... more of what was later diagnosed with pneumonia. The ER doctor on call told her she had the common cold and she would be better within 7-10 days. He told her there was nothing he could do for her. She was having trouble breathing all night, so she went to the doctor in the morning (this ER trip was on a Sunday night) and her pulse oxygen level was in the 80's and she was extremely ill. The problem with this hospital is that it is a remote outpost in a tiny town. Doctor's get shuffled about and shipped in on call from Mobile, Birmingham...you never know what quality of healthcare you are going to get. There are some great nurses, but it's a gamble using this hospital for anything life-threatening, and a dangerous one at that.
