Monsour: Where people go to die.

If you’ve watched the news at all or read any print media, you’ve likely heard of the recent and past troubles of Monsour Medical in Jeannette.

It’s all pretty boring: super mad financial difficulties, poor performance, State gave them a license to operate under certain terms like they can’t perform surgery, forcing them to close down, blah blah blah.

Burghers? My friends and I used to joke that Monsour is where people go to die. In fact, if you are in an accident and you hear the paramedic say in any terms that you will be heading to Monsour, you might as well bend over and kiss your mangled ass goodbye, because the light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer and there is no hope for you my friend.

Monsour had less than 20 patients prior to the limited license. And they have 270 employees.

The building looks like it would fall apart in a strong breeze. When the emergency services changed, they couldn’t get a new sign so it basically looks like they just taped over part of the sign. It’s been that way for years. The parking lot looks like mud. I’m pretty sure the doctors that work there drive Jeep Cherokees circa 1981 and I bet the hospital just echoes with the brrrrrings of rotary phones.

Close that place down, dudes. For real. Then burn it.

UPDATE: Because it made me laugh, I wanted to be sure you all read Julie Gong‘s comment:

“I live close to Monsour and if I had no legs and my brain was leaking out of my head and I was on the ground infront of it I would try to crawl to another hospital.”

Awesome.

    I live close to Monsour and if I had no legs and my brain was leaking out of my head and I was on the ground infront of it I would try to crawl to another hospital.

    The sad part is that I’m friends with the daughter of the one time owner of that hospital. Great perks but they are a crazy family.
