Location and Directions


My daughter was having lots of pain in her right hip so we went first to an urgent care, and we went in immediately. Then we went to an Emergent care, where we had to wait for hours. She was in much pain, and sitting in an uncomfortable waiting room chair was not very helpful. Once we got in she got an X-Ray blood tests and hours of sleepless waiting. They called ahead to the hospital and got a room. We drove to the hospital and entered through the garage. The place was basically empty and a t first we were worried that wouldn't be able to find it, but the sign were actually very helpful. The nurses showed nothing but kind and helpful attitudes(They switched from night shift to day shift while we were there) The doctors did what they had to do and did not stretch it out. The only bad thing was it was her hip, and so she was required to move her pants down a little, and there were like 6 doctors in the room! Maybe a little privacy would be nice! After her stay a man wheeled her out to the garage. Overall her stay was amazing ( Although the hospital food was.... We expected that coming in, its kind of a famous cliche that hospital food is not very good)! The kindness showed to us by the staff here at this hospital was amazing. Thank you to the wonderful people who work there, and showed kindness throughout the night, even at 2 A.M.(Even waking up a sleepy eleven year old to take her vitals, they tried their absolute hardest to make it as comfortable as she could be) Thank you to the peds department at Ellis Hospital.

My father's final days were spent in this spectacular facility. All staff were attentive to not only the patients needs, but to our family's needs. If there could be 6 stars, I would rate it a 6. Thank you for treating everyone with dignity. (4 months ago)

I was on the verge of committing suicide, i admited myself to their mental health facility and recieved nothing but lies. They held me there and told me i would see someone in the morning about getting on meds, that never happend. Then before i left they scheduled me for another evaluation after evaluating me twice, and told me that i would then receive my medication. I called today and they told me i would have to wait 30 day before seeing anyone. When the whole point of me staying at the hospital was to get me "quick treatment" which i never recieved. I was not allowed to leave my room, the staff did not care that i was not eating or sleeping, and even lied to my mom and said i rested well and ate well. They payed absolutely no attention to me or anyone else that was there with me. If your in the area and need hospitalization, i would recommend driving far away from this place (a month ago)

Have been waiting for 3 hours to be seen at emergency room with toddler who needs stitches. Others have been waiting for 5, 6, 8 hours. Several people have left without treatment. A 90-year old woman finally left with her family because they had been here for hours, unseen.This place is a mess. Learn how to fast track and staff properly. (5 months ago)

I will never go the Ellis ER again. Older woman at the check-in desk was extremely rude and mean to not only myself but to my fiance, the elderly couple in front of us in line and ANOTHER patient waiting to be seen. Nothing like being heartless in the emergency department.. which I know can be a stressful job but to treat patients as if they are stupid and a bother to her is unreal and extremely unprofessional. If you do not need to go there and can the extra time go to St. Peter's Hospital! (in the last week)
