Location and Directions


At the beginning of 2018, in the middle of a bad bout with the Flu, I had a sudden perforation in my duodenum and was rushed to Forbes' Emergency Room. They took care of me quickly and my diagnosis was made within an hour or so - in the middle of a Flu epidemic. Since the perforation was deep in my gut with lots of large arteries with no active infection (I was very lucky), they decided to admit me and keep me on IV antibiotics to see it the problem would heal. I spent 11 days there without eating or drinking anything (until the last two days) and the perforation healed itself. During those 11 days, the nurses who took care of me were amazing. Even though the hospital was utterly overflowing with Flu patients, the nurses responded to my needs as if I was their only patient. In over 60 years, I had never spent more than a day in any hospital and the only way I kept from going insane was through the kindness and attentiveness of the Forbes Nurses. Thank you all!

Posting this on part of my recent stay on the 4th floor- Labor & Delivery. I really can’t say enough about the staff in L&D. They are without a doubt AMAZING!!! Each and every person working there, made my husband and I feel great about having chose this hospital for the birth of our son. Every hard working nurse, the doctors, the lactation consultants, even the dietary staff were all exceptional and we are grateful for their kindness. Highly recommended for anybody wanting to have the best experience possible as far as the birth of your baby, and a team dedicated to doing everything they can for you. Thank you! (4 months ago)

I was treated good. My medical issue needed an eye doctor. They don't have one. (2 weeks ago)

Rooms are terrible only a curtain separating them. Person screaming in the next room, this is NOT a restful environment for patients. I can hear every word the doctor and staff say in the next room. Is this not a HIPA violation? Waiting over 24 hours to see a doctor is unacceptable in a hospital. Nurses are unfriendly and rough. Like many others I wish I could give this place a zero.

Never fun to go to hospital. But they made the experience as good as it could be and gave good care. (4 months ago)
