Location and Directions


We have been here often and the staff has always been kind and courteous. Attentive and considerate. Today we had Theresa, Alyssa (love her), Jeff, there are others whose names I didn't get. My uncle is over 90 and they always feed him good, keep him comfortable and meet as many of his needs as possible. (2 months ago)

This is actually a pretty good hospital. It's not the absolute best on earth, like one of the fancy university associated teaching hospitals. But the medical team especially ICU are just as good as pretty much anywhere else. Reading through the reviews it looks like the vast majority of 1 star ratings are from people who "think" they werent catered to by the ER staff. Most likely because your average person doesn't have a clue about how triage works. Also because your average person thinks they're the most important person on earth and that the entire staff should be falling over backwards to rush them to surgery because they're bleeding a little. It is what it is, but it makes online reviews for hospitals completely useless. (a month ago)

By far the worst experience ive ever had. Im literally still sitting here in the waiting room, its been over 4 hours. Im here for a possible clot in my lung. Pretty serious... they couldnt care at all. Im about to leave as im writing this. Don't come here unless you want to gamble your life in the waiting room. Charge nurse teresa is a real piece of work as well. NEVER AGAIN. (3 months ago)

no communication with the patient whatsoever. The nurse asked me basic questions and left. the doctor comes in, makes some observations and leaves WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING. They end up giving me 3 unnecessary tests that I could have proven didn't need to be done had they asked me some simple questions regarding what they were testing... staff doesn't seem to care at all acted like they hated working there. whole 5 hour experience was a COMPLETE waste of time. will be avoiding this sad excuse of a hospital at all costs.

I'm here now so far considering leaving but feeling awful. They took me to see the triage nurse. I left my nephew in the waiting room. Someone invited him back then the triage nurse start asking confidential questions that only share on a need to know basic. Some close family, close friends and medical staff. Stuff that's important I had to hold back because someone took upon themselves to not respect my privacy. (8 months ago)
