Fort Mill area residents weigh in on PMC hospital ruling

April 2, 2014 

Fort Mill residents reacted Tuesday to an administrative law judge’s decision to give Piedmont Medical Center permission to build a hospital in the community.

“I’m just tired of the debate for years and years and years. I don’t really care who does what.” -

“I’m not a big fan of the decision. I’d much rather have CMC. I’ve had bad experiences with Piedmont Medical in Rock Hill.”

“I’m all for it. The closest hospital for me is over at that Carolina Medical Center, which is a nightmare.”

Julie Unger

“It’s good. It’ll be much more convenient than driving all the way to Rock Hill.”

Amber Melford

Fort Mill

“I feel terrible about that (decision). Piedmont doesn’t care about people. All they care about is dollar signs.”

Desiree Ciucas

Fort Mill

“It would be great. No matter what hospital they choose, Fort Mill can really benefit from its construction.”

Jereme Hines

Fort Mill

“It has been talked about for a long time and it will be exciting to finally see it up and running.”

Ocean Patterson

Fort Mill

“No one is ever born in Fort Mill. They are either born in Charlotte or from another place. So kids actually being from Fort Mill is amazing.”

Lisa Stevens

Fort Mill

“I think Piedmont stinks. They are just not a good system. Every PMC facility I’ve ever been to, it was just awful.”

Laura Ducsay

Fort Mill

“A hospital being so close by is great. It would benefit all of the Fort Mill Township.”
