It must be known. When a Doctor, One man builds a hospital and accomplishes his dream. It's a great thing. Especially when it claims that you go from the door to the Doc in 31 minutes! Faster than most? Yes! Seems like a great policy and a great investment right? For the most part yes.

Plus side for investors. The $$$!
Gilbert Hospital - E.R. is not contracted with most if any of the insurance companies.

This means when they submitt payment to insurance companies. The insurance companies then pay the premium. Not 30-50 cents on the dollar like they pay most hospitals. 100% is definatley better! More proffit!!!

Some patients as well as actual full time employees with the option of full benefits and a Hopital that matches 401K and other investments 6% to the employees 4%. WOW! In todays market that's either suicide or a very clever way to show great investments and positive change in revenue.Who could ask for more?

The scam by local patients and FT employees is simple but Highly ILLEGAL!
you go to the hosp. "For treatment." You get treated then they start the billing proccess. Simple done every day throughout the world.
They submitt to such agencies like Blue Cross Blue Shield.
THE INSURANCE COMPANY PAYS THE PATIENT NOT THE HOSPITOL!
Why? No contract! Maybe this should be revised.
Hoping that honesty will prevail! Look at the world right now. Foreclosures and gas prices through the roof. Even people that are honest most of the time have been Keeping the "ready for this"? Sometimes $3000.00 to $30, 000.00 Checks! Holy cow! From the insurance companies. Supposed to be for the hospital. Made to the patient?Even these well paid employees!
Patients and employees have been cashing the checks and keeping the money!

Is this the new scam of AZ? Or is it a poorly run business? Why is it that the C.E.O. Mr. D. Wanger and The Famous self made intellegent man Dr. Johns are the last to know? Usually you might refer to the term. To many chiefs and not enough indians? The chiefs of choice in this case the many, many directors. Why so many? Are they quallified? Who verifies this and thier certifications? H.R. " That has no H.R. Degree." Who hires these employees?
Is this the way all hospitals are run?

You may also be inclined to know that there is :
NO BACK GOUND CHECKS DONE ON F/T EMPLOYEES! NO DRUG SCREEN! OH NO!!!

HR? HUMAN RESOURCES? WHO IS THE H. R. DEPARTMENT?
WHO CHECKS THESE EMPLOYEES OUT?
WHO'S RUNNING THE SHOW?
IS THE MONEY GOING INTO RUNNING A COMPITANT HOSPITAL/BUSINESS
OR IS IT BEING USED TO COVER UP MISTAKES?
OR COULD IT BE BEING USED TO FUND THE OTHER HOPEFULL DREAM HOSPITALS OF ONE MAN. THAT IF HE'S NOT CAREFULL IT MAY SOON BECOME A FANTASY.

Who am I? You my ask. I'm one of the unlucky few that got to sit and wait not once but twice. In the most awkward places for a patient to wait. I sat and waited and listened. Then made some calls and did a little research. I'm a smoker as well as quite a few employees. I learned even more, when the gossiping ring when out to smoke and so did I. While I was waiting.

Yes I was also approched in refference to investing in a share or two of the hospital.

Before you invest! Do your research! Or drop by and have a smoke. It was some of the best research I ever did! The hospital might want to do something about the smoking. I've never been waiting and went out to have a smoke with the same person that was attending to me and my family. "After the cigarette of course"

Sorry, Gilbert E.R. Hospital. I just call them as I see them.

Untill you discover that things may be a little backwards.

Before you go slandering a good hospital's name, perhaps you should go through schooling and perfect your grammar. With as many spelling and grammar mistakes in this article, I am very surprised anyone would ask you to invest in any company, good or bad!

As an employee in the insurance billing side of the medical field (not a Gilbert ER, I assure you, I am not being bias in any way), I know many insurance companies, especially Blue Cross Blue Shield as named in this article, pay the patient instead of the hospital, and it is the patient's responsibility to forward that payment to the hospital to pay off their debt. If the patient refuses to forward such payment, their account goes to collections and eventually against their credit. There is no "scandal", that is just the way things work!

Background checks are ran on all employees, as are drug tests at all hospitals, including Gilbert ER.

As for smoking, currently most medical facilities in Maricopa county are implementing a tobacco screening which would reduce benefit costs for employees proving to be tobacco free (a plus to both employee and patient); And, as always, all hospitals apply the "Wash in, Wash out" rule stating you are to wash before and after seeing a patient.

Next time you go about writing awful reviews, spell check and research are two very important factors.

I used to work at that ER and like many others nurses, left before it went sour on my own. No background check and no drug screen was ever done on any employees until recently. Many doctors are not safe. I would not let most of them touch me and the ones I would no longer work there and left a long time ago. Management that is there is not qualified and I would not trust a single one. Good luck making it out alive.
