I was just a Pennstate Hershey labor and delivery ward with my wife. The took great care of my wife and my unborn son. They also took get care of me as the father. They were very helpful when it came to providing food credit so I could eat while I stayed there. We had a blast! (a month ago)

They want to talk about how they care about their staff and patients. They boast about their rewards they get for being such an excellent hospital. Did you know that nurses don’t really get any discounts when they go to a doctor??? Really?? They are in the works of fixing that in 2018. They care nothing except for the dollar like any business. Don’t let the advertisements fool you!!!! (a month ago)

First off, let me say, I love all of my doctors at Hershey- they are wonderful. I'm sure it is the hospital policies that make everyone miserable- doctors, nurses, patients, staff, and families. My mother was hospitalized last week. Nurses (especially Jill on the 6th floor) treated her horribly and when I spoke up about it, they had security called because they said I "threatened" them. This is the threat: my mom told me she would repay me after she got out of the hospital for all the candy I was bringing her (I wasn't going to accept any repayment for the candy) but I jokingly told my mom, "Don't worry- I know where you live!" Jill, the charge nurse, overheard me say that and thought it was directed at her and that I was going to come to her house to hurt her. A nurse whom I had just met, and didn't even know the last name of, thinks I know where she lives. Talk about ridiculous and paranoid. Jill quickly called security on me. I was escorted out by two security guards on Saturday, June 23, 2018 and was told not to come back to Hershey Medical Center and if I did I would be arrested by Derry Township Police for criminal trespass. It is Tuesday, and I still am not allowed back by hospital secuirty. I have several severe medical issues myself and I'm afraid to go to their ER if I have a problem for fear of being arrested. (But with the care in the ER, you should just stay home anyhow). So Hershey Medical Center likes to keep families separated when they need each other the most. I'm in tears right now because I haven't been allowed to see my elderly, sick mom in days. And they call this a place of healing. It is more like a jail. (3 weeks ago)

The radiology department is amazing! I had taken my 4 year old daughter there for an MRI with sedation. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by the very friendly receptionist, she was very pleasant and so kind to my daughter, telling her how pretty she was, showing her her pencil with a fuzzy smiley face on it. Then we went back to get her ready for her test. The nurses were so warm and friendly to my daughter and me. We got her dressed in her gown and then another nurse came over and let her pick some stickers to decorate her gas mask and then she let her pick out a scented lip balm to make the inside of her mask smell goid to help her relax and go to sleep. Then the anesthesiologist came in and was very nice and told us what was going on and he told my daughter Annie too what was going on, then the radiologist technician came and in and explained what he was going to do. Then the nurses and I took her over to get sedated and the doctor told me to put the mask over her face to start and then he took over and she was out. It kind of made me feel like a team member helping with my child. After that, the one nurse told us to go down to the cafeteria and eat a bite or get some coffee and come back in an hour and then not too long after that we would be able to see her. So we did so and came back and not too long after we were able to see my Annie, she was still a little out but we sat with her a bit gave her some juice and crackers and then we were done. Before we left the nurses let her pick a toy from a toy box, let her keep the adorable pillow case that was on her pillow And asked Annie if she wanted to take her sticker decorated gas mask home with her, which she said no.lol. This radiology department s staff was amazing! A bunch of highly devoted caring team players. I never felt more better putting my daughter's care in these people's hands. Thank You All !

I'm not pleased with the mechanical clinical experience but generally the doctors are good so it's the experience you need then you go here. I find industrialed medicine leaves a lot to be desired though. (3 weeks ago)
