the food here is greeaaaatttttt the cafeteria has a WIDE variety of food. best place to go even just for a lunch break at work. many many departments for an elderly. inspiring for young adults being that the medical workers are young and clean looking. very big and is almost like a museum.

My friend was there after suffering a cardiac arrest and 2 heart attacks,he passed away, the attention he received in the intensive care unit was unbelievable. They were very attentive and he had no family but they updated us on his condition. I want to thank the doctors and nurses who took care of him in his last. days.God bless you all. My friend name was Robert reichele. (a month ago)

After hearing all of the bad things about this place, I desperately did not want it to be true and came in here with an open mind. To make a long story short, a family member of mine had to come to this hospital because the Chicago EMS refused to bring her to our main hospital. Very frustrating rule and I tried to fight it the best I could because my family member has a very complex medical history and cannot go to a low rate hospital. Anyways, let's begin. She was admitted to the ER and had very low blood pressure because she didn't eat that morning. Her vitals were so low that they refused to send her to Evanston. They crammed us in a small ER room where we waited for hours. The nurse who attended to us was also training someone else which is very unnerving when you are in the ER. The ER doctor was less then helpful, he didn't know what to do with my mom and sent her up to the ICU. In the ICU she was not seen by doctors, instead two physician assistants who were equally clueless. It was a very frustrating experience. I was actually happy to go to the ICU as I thought it would be better care then the ER but I was disappointed. The rooms were not much bigger and I did not feel confident in the care she was given. She had several labs done which were eventually sent to our main hospital, but they wouldn't even consider them valid...which says a lot. I understand the way this hospital works and know that it is not the best. But it really needs to be improved. I feel bad for people who depend on this hospital to provide care. There really needs to be something done, hire actual doctors for starters. (5 months ago)

Agree completely with the reviewer who praised the medical staff while stating that the billing and accounts receivable needs work. I had emergency surgeries at St Francis and was there for several weeks as well as readmission later. I cannot speak highly enough of the doctors, nurses, and pct’s. The care I received was excellent from the ER on. The billing and accounts receivable department not so much. Defintely needs work on the admin end but the medical care was greatly appreciated.

The er staff was awesome! My concern is the type of certification is needed to become a pct at this hospital. Not one but 2 different pct who were assigned my mother were not knowledgeable in how to move a patient with how had partial paralysis. They both refer to my mom as not wanted to turn over. Then one of the techs said oh she knows she can't! Really.. so you like to hurt her feelings. Mid changing my mom she picks her ip phone and argues about another patient super loud. So know i know that patients in 3052 only needs an escort to the restroom... why why why why. Do we need to hear this. The topper of my one star is my mom has fidgeting hand and when a nurse or pct approach her bed, they literally tell her DONT TOUCH ME! No compassion, which can tell you exactly how they feel about their work. (a month ago)
