This is a very small rural hospital, with a very small medical staff and very limited resources. The Doctor who I saw was very informative, thorough and knowledgable. I felt like I was in good hands! I only waited for 2 hours as opposed to the 6+ hours I would have waited at EAMC! That is the shortest wait I have EVER had at ANY emergency room, and I have lived in 3 different states, many cities/towns and I have visited several ER's in my lifetime for various reasons! I felt my wait-time at LMCH was reasonable considering there was only one RN and one Doctor treating 3 different patients and one of those patients had to be life flighted to Birmingham (without hesitation) because the Doctor was competent enough to know that the patient needed to go to a larger hospital...so you aren't dealing with ego's here! And, yes...they have a helicopter landing pad for major medical emergencies! Their genuine concern is doing the best they can do for their patients, with the limited resources that they have! I was very impressed and I left feeling better than when I first got there...I mean, after all, that is the reason for going to the ER to begin with, right?
The avatar (photo of the hospital) that someone decided to use is "stock" imagery and is not a photograph of the hospital...in fact, it's not a photo at all, it's a drawing! That photo never concerned me! I don't feel the image was used to "lure people in" deceptively! It is just a generic photograph used as an avatar...nothing more, nothing less! I took a photograph of the hospital, that I decided to share, for those who want to see what the hospital looks like!
NOTE: There is a pharmacy located in front of the hospital, though I do not recall the name of the pharmacy or the hours of operation?
