What's the scoop on Arizona Regional Medical Center?

  1. Just got an interview as a new ASU grad, but I've heard a nasty little rumor that they have trouble paying their employees. Anyone know anything good or bad?

    I'm not sure how accurate it is but I read some recent employee feedback online about that. They're mostly physician owned. Looking at financial stats for 2011 below, they don't seem to be doing very well financially for being a 'for profit' hospital .

    That's good news!

    It'll probably re-open after a large hospital chain buys it for pennies on the dollar. It won't be Arizona Regional Medical Center. It's tough times for hospitals but management probably also made plenty of bonehead business decisions.
