It never seems to amaze me about Mercy of Fort Smith. They have fired or let go 7-12 long term employees in the last year or two. They just let another long term employee go in the last couple of weeks. When will it end? I'm talking about employees that have been with St. Edwards 30 to 38 years of service. I know that my daughter in law works there and their health insurance is terrible compared to few years ago. They require you to see Mercy doctors to be covered under their plan. My grandson was sick and they had to take him to their walk-in clinic and on top of that had to pay a $50.00 co-pay. Sparks is a for profit hospital. Their employee insurance is a lot better. They pay 100% for all tests and when I go see my doctor which is with Cooper Clinic after we meet our $1000.00 deducible I pay NO co-pay and only $20..00 if we have not met our deductible. If you know any present employees ask them what Mercy as become in the last few years.
Mercy or Not. .
