Check out all the good news going on over at Ascend Health…   http://www.bizjournals.com/boston/blog/startups/2012/06/polaris-venture-partners-reports-10x.html

Today I also stumbled upon this little gem of a website that you really must read about another Ascend health facility that I have not focused on much since it’s unfamiliar to me.  In particular, look at the comments section and note the similarities between the things said on my blog and what these people say about this facility:

In particular, note this doctor’s comment (reprinted in its entirety, and without any editing, but I’m putting certain parts in RED for emphasis).

“I’m a doc that has worked for companies like this one. First: don’t believe *everything* you read above, BUT believe a lot of it. Second: When you hear “It’s all about the money,” you can be sure that is correct when you are talking about administration. If the staff wanted to make money, they would have picked different careers. The trick is figuring out if the company has a balance between profit to stay open/relevant and providing high quality care. When you hear how miserable the staff is at a place like this (search the net for staff satisfaction scores), you can be sure that the place doesn’t have a decent balance. If they treat the staff like rubbish, they will have rubbish for staff…So Third: look at the history of the corporate leadership. They’ve built several low-quality profit machines and sold them quickly. Do you want those guys directing your program?”

Sing it Nelly…. “Haaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy… it MUST da Money!”
