Some bad experience at the nicu unit. It depends on the shifts. The later night nurses seem nicer and respectful. The Sunday nurse's forget about it. They are rude loud lazy and disrespectful. Had breast milk for my son that my wife forgot to bring in so I rang the bell and all snooty like she says only two people at a time and i say I know I just wanted to give her the breast milk. .so she say oh ok I wait and wait no one comes. So I call the hospital and they transfer me to the same lazy chic. And she says I went to the door and um like um you um weren't like there or something. I said yeah i went to the lobby to go sit down. Oh well do you want me to come and get the um breast milk um or like um or meet you in the hall or um something.... I thought this place was top notch wow oh wow!!! (3 weeks ago)

This place has the worst service. I had an 8 am appointment. At 11:30 I left after not being seen yet. A patient with an 8:30 appointment was in and out before I was called. Another patient with an 8am appointment arrived after 10:30 and was still called in before me. Other times that I've been to this place it was the same experience. I think they should respect the time of their patients. (3 weeks ago)

This hospital is amazing! I am thankful for all the good services and wonderful staff. The Doctor and nurses are the best. I love my father very much and I thank you from my hear for everything you did for him! Thank God for people like you! Hugs to all of you from my family. (5 months ago)

Worked there and in 30 years in the medical field in various fields, in numerous hospitals, this place by far is the most unethical, filthy facility I've experienced. From the OR to the floors. The care at this facility is below the national avg, infection rates are through the roof. But inspecting agencies are tipped off to protect the facility from unethical findings and health and safety code violations from rusty, dirty surgical instruments to mold in the OR, to inexperienced techs who not only don't have a clue what they're doing but do NOT care for the patient. This facility should be SHUT down COMPLETELY. The Staff is rude, incompetent, their cell phones and breaks are their priority. Again in my 30 years, this is by far, without exaggeration the most filthy hospital I've ever worked in. (a month ago)
