I don’t like hospitals; in fact I detest them with every fiber of my being. However, I do feel the need to write about this one in particular, this is the University of Mississippi Medical Center in
. I was born here and so were my mother, and many other members of my family. I have seen too much of this place recently and I feel the need to write about it in hopes that it will appease the powers that be so that the universe rights itself and no one in my life has to enter through it’s doors for a reason other than employment.

So let the appeasement begin.
UMMC is one of the best hospitals in the state of
, and it is probably the only hospital that I trust. While it isn’t perfect as most hospitals aren’t, but it is a bit different than most others in the area in that it is a teaching hospital. This means that it is not run solely for profit, so it is one of the few hospitals that will work with you and offer reasonably attainable financial aid if you can not afford normal care. (You see the fact that the American Healthcare system is a for-profit industry is something I find morbid and frightening… but that is a rant I’m not going to get into.) This hospital is the only level-1 trauma center in the state of Mississippi and has been the hospital of choice in my family for generations. Mississippi
I have seen a lot of this hospital recently, as my mother has been in and out of it since March. It has been a long ordeal and we still have a long way to go, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
