some of the things people experience by trying to
use that ?. I'm not certain what most refer to it as.(i know some may say they saved a life)
but its the continual stories told of how that place is a ..... story after story after story.
just you ask around and you'll hear them for yourself.
Why ? and they charge " so very too much !
it take years to build a good rep. i often wonder why they are scorned by so many . Why is the collection part a good efficienc working effort , yet the other not so .

Yep, Harris Hospital sucks alright. Wait until they send their collection agency after you when you had paid your bill the day you seen them and you try to tell the collection agency and they say your lieing, then you call Harris's and they say they will take care of it and don't until 2 months later and 100 calls from the collection agency later. That was really a blast.

I made a payment arrangement with them and even Paid my bill off early and they still had a collection agency calling and calling even after unpaid them off the nurses and doctors are much better than they were a few years ago while in the hospital I was treated really well it's the accounts department that is lacking in customer service and we are the customer after all

All hospitals expect to get paid for services rendered. Harris is not a free clinic. If you were to go to any other facility they too are making payment arrangements with their patients as they come through the ER.. All hospitals these days have other company's managing there accounts so if you missed a payment 3 months in a role you too will be turned over to a collection agency. When you go to Walmart do you walk in a take what u need and pay later I think not.. If we didn't have a hospital then Newport would have no industry for others to have a jOb. Think about that..

Well I guess you are the smartest person on earth and just know everything. Hospitals do get paid for their services and other hospitals do not turn you over to a collection agency when your bill HAS ALREADY BEEN PAID IN FULL. NOT LATE OR NOT MISSED PAYMENTS BUT PAID IN FULL AT TIME OF SERVICE. It is a first aid station that should be shut down.

Infrastructure is vital for Newport. The hospital is one large part of necessary services needed for acommunity to survive. Newport does not stand a chance for growth without hospitals or schools or police. Instead of bashing why not become part of the solution.

Well said. Because so many crackhead, drug addicts come through the er and drive up the cost for the rest of us. If they didn't charge and demand payment, they would go out of business. Is the Hospital perfect? No, if you go to Batesville, Searcy or Little Rock, they have the same complaints as Newport. It is human's working, and with all humans there are errors. Be thankful you have a hospital to maybe save your life and get you to a bigger hospital. If you go get gas, they expect a payment, if you go to walmart, they expect a payment. So what is different about a hospital expecting payment?

Why do you think Newport Hospital went under? I would think because everyone wanted free healthcare. Or maybe Harris was a better hospital and more people went there. If it had really been the better Hospital, it would still be up and running.

Speaking from experience, as I was born there, it is a top notch medical facility. I can say, with certainty, that I was ushered from the womb successfully, given proof by my being here and typing this very comment. I am pretty sure that at some point a monument will be erected to commemorate my birth and it will be added to the national registry of historic places. Thank you Harris Hospital for blessing the world with my presence!

antibotic reactions are not that rare. My wife had taken Keflex many times, and then one day she had a bad reaction. Had to take her straight to hospital.I had a bad reaction to penicillin reaction after taking it all my life. We didn't blame the doctor. It happens at all hospitals.
