Should BJC Medical Center be sold to Restoration Healthcare of Tennessee for $7.1 million?
The office of Georgia attorney general Thurbert Baker wants to hear the opinions of Jackson and Banks county residents on that topic. It has scheduled a public hearing for Monday at 5:30 p.m. at East Jackson Comprehensive High School.
Within 30 days of the hearing, Baker must decide whether to allow the sale.
The purchase price is based upon an appraisal. By law, the agreement must be approved by the attorney general.
BJC needs to be closed! It cannot live down the reputation it has had for many years.
Dr. Keith Ash was the saving grace for BJC, but because of a greedy few, it is now operating in a worse condition than before. BJC truly lost someone that cared about the succcess of the hospital.
Now I drive to Athens for any treatment.
Do you not think it strange that all parties suing Dr. Ash have the same attorney? As a nurse myself
I find it very odd. I guess that is what class actions are about.
Rest assured that no one in my neighborhood will come to BJC I am sorry to see this happens but you get what you deserve.

I live in Commerce, and I currently refuse to use BJC; however, it would be nice to have an acceptable hostipal in the community. I think that having new ownership and management can help significantly toward resolving the current issues and moving toward the goal of having a good hospital we're all not afraid to use.
BJC also provides a lot of jobs for the community. We certainly don't need any more jobs to disappear.
Dr. Ash was a saving grace???

Dr Ash was an imbecile...he is the reason that no one trusts that hospital or its staff, and he was a horrible surgeon at that...thus the reason he is currently being sued by so many, regardless of the attorney!
