Location and Directions


I'm currently sitting in a room for a possible broken ankle. 7:55pm July 5th, 2018. I just watched a couple leave a room after being treated, and not even 5 minutes later, another patient walk in to be treated..... NO ONE WENT IN AND CLEANED THE ROOM BETWEEN THE TWO PATIENTS!!!! What kind of hospital is this??? I'll definitely be going to Catawba Valley Medical Center from now on for any issues with myself or my family! I have never been so disgusted! I'll be contacting anyone and everyone to let this be known, room number and all!!!! (2 weeks ago)

I would like to take the time and say THANK YOU to all the absolute wonderful doctors and nurses at FRYE REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER. I am well aware of plenty of horror stories that have happened but my friends that is anywhere you go. My Ninaw continuously bragged at how well she was treated and I witnessed the love and compassion first hand. From x-ray techs, lab workers, housekeeping, nurses, food service and doctors. We honesty did not meet anyone that made us feel uncomfortable. This type of care really helps ease the worrying family's while our loved one heals. (2 months ago)

My mother in law was admitted to the ER last PM at Frye for a broken hip. Everyone was kind, thoughtful and skilled. I am a nurse who works an hour away at a major medical center. The man at the front entry was very kind and helpful also. I found the waiting room quite comfortable. Parking facilities were nice and close. Might suggest some signage about the hospital near the major roads as we had no gps with us. Thanks. (4 months ago)

This past weekend we took our 9 year old daughter to the emergency room after she was injured in a basketball tournament. The level of care and the whole experience was bad. When we arrived at the ED with a screaming child holding her arm we were forced to stand in line behind a clearly 'non urgent' patient. An EMT standing nearby he felt so bad for her he took the initiative to have the triage nurse get him something to stabilize her arm and a wheel chair. We were taken back to what appeared to be the "quick" or not urgent ED area. It was at least 45 minutes or more before we were even seen. I went out to the desk to ask for a blanket where a lady was playing on her cell phone - I was told to go to the end of the hall to the blanket warmer and get my own!!! our room's curtain and door were left open by the staff and the patient next to us kept coming in and out asking about our treatment. Hello HIPAA?? My daughter's discharge instructions are practically blank nothing on the sling she was sent home, nothing on the meds she was told to take nothing about follow up etc. Plus even though I told them multiple times her PCP its UNKNOWN. If I ever need medical attention again in Hickory I'll drive to another hospital first. Not sure how they aren't shut down. (a month ago)

I had a traumatic experience at this hospital. First of all the cleaning staff took important papers off my bed which I was never able to get back. Very poor cleanliness on hall where I stayed, consisting of public seats that aren't cleaned, publicly used telephones that aren't cleaned and one patient threw up and it was just covered with paper towels until the cleaning staff could come. The lab technician did not know how to draw blood and did not have the proper set up for blood draw either. The Doctor was dishonest with me about my treatment. The food was disgusting. One day they served fermented cantalope. The snacks were very unhealthy and consisted mostly of white sugar. and flour. Sugar is a poison and should not be served as a snack in a hospital. It causes diabetes. There was not proper privacy either for most of the patients. Fry's corporate office is in Alabama. I am not surprised. It took me several months to recover from being hospitalized here. I would never go back. (2 months ago)
