Location and Directions


Terrible! My sons head was bleeding all over the waiting room and upholstery and no one bothered to take him in the back for bandages at least. Never had anyone come clean it up either and the woman at the front desk have no idea what they’re doing. The snack machines DO NOT dispense any thing or refund your money and there was no phone number on the machine to complain to. Don’t bother going to the front desk either because it’s “not my responsibility” from what I was told. Do NOT go here. The quack behind an alley would be better. (a month ago)

The sole purpose of me giving this place one star is because I don’t have the option to rate it zero stars. I arrived at SOMC at around 125 130 am with my 2 week old newborn baby. The staff and nurse at the front desk were extremely helpful and got us in the back within 5 minutes. But when we got in the back we sat for an hour and even asked the nurse to find a doctor not once but twice due to the rash on my daughters face getting worse. After the mother of my child begged the nurse to get the doctor a second time she told us that he would see us whenever he can so we told her we were leaving and going to Jersey Shore the nurse then told us to “do what we had to do”. I will never come to this hospital ever again. (2 months ago)

This place is absolutely useless. Many hospital staff standing around doing nothing. It's taken 4.5 hours and counting to do much of nothing. No real diagnosis yet. Stool sample sits in the room for 30+ minutes with no action, disgusting. People in the hallway, neglected with no room to sit in. Unsure what could possibly take this long. To be fair, the doctor is very nice and personable. I feel bad for him, he could do better elsewhere. We had better care and attention at the atlanticare urgent care. Too bad they weren't equipped to solve the problem. Steer clear of this place if you can help it. Travel the extra time to another hospital if you can, you will get cared for quicker. Also, don't attempt to stay for an extended amount of time in your loved ones er room. The chair is uncomfortable. (2 weeks ago)

You should only go to this hosptial if you have no job, no life, all the time in the world because the staff here doesn’t care if you sit in the waiting room, recovery room, etc for 16 hours! Everyone takes there sweet time and the nurses are always standing around talking or sitting on their asses. Extremely inconvient. (a month ago)

I have been to the ER 3 times in the last 2 weeks. The first time I was submitted I give the visit 5 Stars because of the care and concern i received from Kim V. This employee is exemplary with the care and kindness that I was given. Kim is also smart and knowledgeable. I was also taken care of by Mary Kay whom was also kind and took care of me. My second visit however was the complete opposite. When I was discharged the nurse rushed through the halls with me in the wheel chair and having severe back pain did not help. She then dumped me by the revolving door and left. My back pain is so severe and I was in shock I was dumped like a piece of garbage by the revolving door. It sucks when you are treated like a piece of garbage and still have to pay for the ER visit. For my 3 visit I saw Kim V. and I was so relieved. I was also taken care of by Nurse Doyle. Also, good. But I just have to say that Kim V is the whole package and if not for her your Fast Track ER would really suck!!!! (5 months ago)
