I had a good experience as far as staff being good to me... Especially in the surgery department.. it took a long time to get meds etc if you asked for them..that's the only thing that bothered me was they were slow to help..but it didn't make me mad or anythingi I just figured they were busy..I would definitely be a patient there again.

I have been taking my mother here for years, I would not take her anyplace else the staff is great with her as well as our family when we are there. We are confident in the care and treatment she gets while in the hospital here. My mom has spent alot of time in the hospital as well as a lot of time in ICU. When we do have to leave her to go to work or home to rest they are very good at updating us they call with any changes and are always nice enough and patient enough to answer our calls with any questions even if it is just to ease our minds so we can rest. We are blessed to have such a great hospital and such an amazing team of care givers so close to home. Thank you staff of St Joe east we truly appreciate all you do for our family. (5 months ago)

My mother went to the hospital for a CT scan after she was told by them that her appendix was inflamed and inlarged, and could be at the point that it could burst. She had already been in severe pain for almost a week and still was at the times of this visit. After the CT scan, she had to wait five hours in a waiting room and when they asked the lady at the desk how much longer, she only said "I don't know, I'm back here by myself." Then finally they waited for thirty more minutes for the doctor to tell her that they had accidentally mixed up her scans with another patient and told her that it was probably hernias. They didn't even really confirm if it was hernias or not. They said will call you on Monday, and sent her home with nothing to help with the pain or any assurance of what was really wrong with her. Just a "it's probably hernias." I would never recommend this hospital to anyone. The care and diligence they supposedly have here is horrid. Do not go here if you think that they are going to take care of you, because they will more than likely leave you for another five hours to decide if they have they even have your name right.

Unfortunately I broke my nose and the nearest emergency was here at St Joseph Hospital, 30 minutes in waiting hall,then 3 hours sitting at the room inside just waiting for the doctor,then they send me out to take the X-ray,hey guys I went there because I thought you gonna set right my nose canals,but not,they gave me out papers and told me Hey you broke nose,we can't do anything. What?? I knew it. Very awful experience with service. Now I got two bills over $2000. Thank you ((( (3 months ago)

I would like to take a few minutes to thank everyone who took care of me. I went in for outpatient surgery on October 6th. Everyone from the registration process you the nurses were outstanding. Angie was the nurse who took care of me most of the time, and she is AMAZING!! She handed me off to the nurse who took me to surgery (I think his name was Cameron) who was awesome and made me feel relaxed while taking me to surgery. I couldn't have asked for a better hospital staff to be overseeing me. You guys work great as a team, and have great people skills which really makes a difference. Thank you for all you did for me.
