WEST MICHIGAN — West Michigan is home to 2 of only 4 hospitals in the state to receive perfect scores, according to a new ratings system.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) looked at Michigan’s 111 hospitals and judged them based on 64 criteria, some notable ones including re-admission rates, overuse of diagnostic testing, and complications after surgery. Four in the state were given perfect 5-star ratings.

In West Michigan, those hospitals were Holland Community Hospital in Holland and Oaklawn Hospital in Marshall.

Most hospitals in the state scored three-stars or less.

CMS is a federal agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

    I went to Holland hospital for a infection and four days later I had to be taken out in a wheelchair . They hurt me bad . They did not know what to do to help me. They caused me several more problems I had never had before. I left with the worst gout and constipated to the point of causing me a lot of pain. I left because I thought I would be left lying there to die. I was getting sicker every day. Went to spectrum in Zealand and in too hour’s I new what Holland hospital had done to me . And I new how they were going to fix it. It’s been almost a month and I am still not completely better. My advice is to never go to Holland they will just let you lay there waiting to see if you get better on your own. So what was a minor infection turned into a week in the hospital. Don’t believe there rating . If you want to die Holland hospital is the right place to go .I’ve been off work almost a month now. All caused by Holland hospital. Stay away from that place it’ll kill you.

    Oaklawn Hospital is as fine a AMA hospital as you’ll find in the USA today. Too bad they are in the business of making you sick so they can make millions killing you with chemo and other unnecessary treatments.

    Oaklawn serves poisoned pesticides as food and supports the theory that as long as they can make money from serving you shit and keeping you suffering, well, keep on trucking.

    Rob’s model of taking over the city government and turning the entire town into their money making campus at the expense of the rest of us is alive and well. Oaklawn has killed so many people with chemo and treatments that they know do not work.
