Comments on: Are turnkey hospitals possible? Grow your own Thu, 26 Mar 2015 12:32:24 +0000 hourly 1 By: klk Wed, 27 Oct 2010 04:18:13 +0000 ORI has not performed up to expectation on this project.

Ask any nurse or doctor. I am tired of the free advertising ORI gives itself, while they have been complete mismanagers of the project.

Where is the media? Where are the tough questions? A lot of money was thrown at this hospital, and it appears to be failing at the moment, lay offs, etc.

For things to change, there is going to need to be accountability.

Areas which are developing still have existing health care systems,developed locally, based on need and local resources. Patterns of referral, insurance reimbursements, and family socio economic status all play unique rolls which need to be considered.
People in the developing world are not usually as fortunate to have access to many of the services we take for granted in the USA. Not all the “best” services which exist in the USA can be plopped into the developing world, and certainly not the typical management style.
