Boot McDonald’s Out of Vanderbilt Hospital

Since 1995 I have been making visits to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville.  I have also had an extended stay at this hospital when my son was ill.  I have never understood why an excellent hospital committed to healing and long-term health has a fast-food chain on site.  It’s almost comparable to a drug-rehab letting dealers set up deals in the rehab lobby.

I applaud Parkland Hospital in Dallas on removing McDonald’s from it’s campus.   You can read about this change as reported by The Dallas Morning News.   I believe in a free society individuals should be able to make personal choices on their food intake, but having a fast food chain avaiable for a captive audience of sick people seems very anti-productive.

    I agree completely. That’s why I love that Centennial Hospital in Nashville has a Subway, as well as other choices, so that you at least feel like healthier choice options, without it being just Hospital food. Just my 2 cents!

    C ya tonight!
