Location and Directions


The best experience in hospitals Courteous personnel in general. I have been there several times in the past few years. I took my father and I have been myself 4 times in the past 3 years. They have excellent doctors with excellent bed side manners and very good personnel from nurse aids, nurses, technicians and doctors, everything including big, clean rooms with big windows and nice views. Oh, I was forgetting the emergency room with a very good service once you are inside but way too busy. Too many people for a small emergency room. Thanks God Homestead finally got a good hospital but our population is growing to fast to soon. We just need another hospital as good as this one. (3 weeks ago)

9 hours in the waiting room. We came in at 11:30 pm and didn't leave until 9:30am the next day. A PA named PAULINA DOMINGUEZ wrote that I "left against medical advise" and that she PERSONALLY tried to convince me to stay which is a complete LIE. She wrote that I left at 3:49am when I was getting an ultrasound that THEY ordered! I kept asking what we were waiting for after the ultrasound and the staff at the lobby were rude and told me I had to keep waiting without giving a good explanation. Come to find out when I spoke to other staff that they had DISCHARGED me even though I was given nothing for my pain and no one had spoken to me about the results. All they did was take blood and do an ultrasound, it should not have taken 10 hours!! The people working overnight are INCOMPETENT and UNPROFESSIONAL (in the last week)

1 star is not even the right star... It is definitely 0!! I went there with my 3 months old daughter. She had diarrhea mixed with blood. We waited for 5 hours to be seen!! Yes, 5 hours!! I had to change everything on her every time she pooped because the diaper would just not hold it :-( my husband had to run home to get some more clothing for her. After 5 hours of waiting they finally got us in. By that time she had a rash already for all the poop she did. Back in Boston, the doctor told me she was allergic to milk protein and told me to cut everything... so I did. However, I did eat a cake that didn't say it had milk on it, and I thought that it made her sick. I told the doctor at Baptist Hospital and he told me that is not true... that nothing that I would eat would go to her by breastfeeding her. My husband questioned him, she can drink alcohol and than breastfeed the baby? He said YES!!!! Anyhow... it took them another 3 hours to let us go, and at the end the "doctor" said the results of the exams would come back only on Monday! It was Friday and she had BLOOD on her poop! And he also wrote on the papers that the reason of the visit was the rash!! On Saturday morning there was more blood... we went to Children's Hospital in Miami. They took us in immediately because she was just 3 MONTHS OLD! They did the exams and the results were back in 1 HOUR!!! She had salmonella :-( and could have died!! The doctors think that she got it by having someone touching her with duty hands because she was only on breastfeeding. Anyways, I can not even think what could have happen to her if we didn't go to the Children's Hospital. Don't go there. Drive a little if you can... at the end the ride will be worth it.

On Oct 21, 2017 I was admitted for Diverticulitis and a few days later I had to have major surgery. I will forever be grateful to the entire staff that took care of me. This was the biggest most life changing experience I’ve had in my life & for the most part the nurses were so loving, attentitive and professional. Anyone I talk to I tell them about my experience because they truly made a difference in my life. I’ve been back to the ER at least once a month since November 2017 & I’ve never waited over 30 minutes. They are really trying to get patients in and out based on the severity of the visit which is why we are placed in the room while awaiting our results so that the next person can be treated. I am very happy with this Hospital and each time I go I feel comfortable. I have Obamacare nothing extravagant & I wasn’t treated poorly. I’ll be forever grateful to this hospital and to GOD for saving my life. (2 months ago)

Best Hospital I have been to in years. I had Bronchitis. They did all kind of work ups on me. I am allergic to quite a bit. The give me the correct meds. Everyone that I had to see in the different departments we're a 5 star. Very helpful. I highly recommend this emergency room. They have there stuff together... (4 months ago)
