They filed my insurance wrong and I’ve got bills running out my ears. Spoke with them and they corrected the error, but still getting bills from 20 different people. Been going on 4 months and I’ve spent hours on the phone trying to tell all these people to resubmit to insurance. Uab shows the insurance good and only owing 50 deductible then they tell everybody else no insurance... grrrr (a month ago)

I was transferred to Med West from Princeton after being in their ICU for a month and a half. Being a patient on the 5th floor was a blessing. I can not recall any rude behavior from the care team and they were very responsive to my needs and understood my condition and limitations from being unconscious for a month. The food was very good and tasted homemade. The only issue I had was that it took several days for the tech to come to my room and get my meal order. The smiles were genuine and the atmosphere was comfortably positive. My PT & OT pushed me just enough to want to keep progressing. Last but not least here and Princeton are the only two hospitals I have been in that actually updated the white boards in your room so that you knew who was who. Thank you for everything 5th floor ya’ll are Rockstars!!! 🙏🤙👍👏 (2 weeks ago)

I came to the Er sunday for chest pain. They took blood and did a chest xray. They said everything looked good. They gave me pain pills and sent me home. Today is 3/1/18 I'm back in they Er at 7:45am took me to the back right away. Its now 9:06am and i still haven't seen the Dr. The nurse. Came and took blood and still. No Dr. I told them my pain was a level 10 no damn Dr. I'm not back in this Er for norhing but I'm ready to walk out and go to Princeton. This dont make no sense. Oh yes I'm writing this while in rm 101 waiting to see a Damn Dr. Yes i do have insurance Bcbs. (2 months ago)

Nov 2018 my mom was very sick with Pneumonia and dangerously low potassium levels and I was notified by her Dr at 11:30 pm, that I needed to get her to an ER quickly. Two days prior to this she had just been discharged from a 1 week stay at another hospital, and had not had a good experience in their ER Dept, so I decided to take her to the Medical West freestanding ER in Hoover. Everyone there, from start to finish, were wonderful and took great care of my mom. I was very impressed with this ER and so happy it is so close to my Moms house. The ER Dr. explained that she needed to be readmitted to the hospital to get IV potassium in her quickly. I decided to have an ambulance take her to Medical West Hospital in Bessemer. I work in a hospital in Atlanta and did not know which hospitals here in B’ham, were good and which were bad, so after agreeing to have her transferred there, I decided to check the reviews.....I thought I would die! I have never read so many bad/negative reviews! I was I am by myself at 2:00 AM, having my 79 yr old mother transferred by ambulance to a hospital that has nothing but horrible reviews written about them! I was hysterical, what in the world had I done, sending my mom to this place.The ambulance was already transferring her, so there was nothing I could do, but pray, and pray I did! Needless to say, we ended up having the best experience I have ever had at a hospital. Every single person, from the staff bringing in her meals, to the cleaning staff, the techs,the nurses and the Drs! Could not believe the care my mother received! They were all fabulous! We were so surprised by the care she got at this hospital, especially after reading all the horrible reviews. The only thing that was not perfect in our stay was, the size of the hospital room, and the hospital is very old and needs alot of updating. I spent the night in the room with my mom, and there was barely room for the chair that I slept in. The tiniest room I have ever seen in a hospital. Way too small...the ambulance stretcher could barely get into the room to get my mom into the bed. Other than that our care was amazing and I truly thank each one of the staff for taking such good care of my mom. I hope this hospital has taken all those bad reviews and used them to make this a great hospital for good. (4 months ago)

Terrible place. Charges 5 times more than anywhere else without explaining charges. I never would have let them do anything if I had known they would charge that amount. (4 months ago)
