The change in our hospital came when Ardent bought in. I do believe in wise money management, but not at the price of good pt. care.
I was very pleased with UT until Ardent bought in to our system. It has been very sad to see an outstanding hospital, become a place that so many great nurses were let go. The pt. care has suffered.
ProsA small part of U T is still State.
ConsThere is no longer job security.
