Husband was admitted to the ER for possible heart attack. ER staff was wonderful. The absolute travesty was that what is supposed to be the best cardiovascular hospital in the area doesn't even have a cardiologist in house. We had to wait over 7 hours for an echocardiogram to be read by the on-call cardiologist. Absolutely ridiculous!! (2 months ago)

Very clean...very nice employee's I think it is the best hospital in WV.. café.... perfect..... great we walk down about 3 times a month to eat there.... (2 months ago)

My daughter was having stomach problems and we went to the emergency room. I know it's a city but seriously waiting for 6 hours to be seen is ridiculous. Then another 5 in the room. Unfortunately we had to go back in a couple of weeks for the same thing. Again another long wait. This time when she went back to the room we were only there about an hour because she has to be admitted. Once on the floor I could not ask for a better hospital. The nurses were all very helpful, not only to my daughter but also to me and my husband. Bravo to the dedicated nurses. (7 months ago)

I posted a review on CAMC general by mistake. I will try to copy it here where it belongs. My mom was there week before Halloween. Her first night her phone was stolen and the staff said it was probably mixed in with the laundry. Well, security told us phones are stolen ALL THE TIME! He also said that in all his time there he only saw 1 phone returned. Worse though, the different doctors involved did not seem to know what the others were doing. It was days of us being asked if tests were done, or telling us what the docs said was not ordered in the system. Suffice to say, s cluster. When a sleep study was not done, and we thought it had been, they offered to keep mom one more night. She refused! Thankfully she got well enough to go home, but i really hope she never has to go back there. (6 months ago)

I was taken very good care of here. Treated way better than I was at hospital in Mercer County where I live. (2 months ago)
