Location and Directions


My mother was recently in the ICU for extended medical care, and nurse Vicky was incredibly patient as she tended to my mothers needs that were quite extensive. Her calm care of my mom was comfort not only to me but to my mother as well- especially under difficult circumstances . Nursing is an incredibly demanding job and nurse Vicky was remarkable. In addition, we were fortunate to have Dr Leinager as well. As he came into the room, he asked my mom "How can I help you today?" I have never seen a doctor as engaging in patient care. We were lucky to have this team during this difficult time and we will never forget their care and compassion (2 weeks ago)

Several bad experiences at this hospital. On one occasion they sent my bill to the wrong address and then they send me a late notice. Another time they billed me for work that was never supposed to be done in the first place. On another occasion they couldn't find my son's vein when they were trying to draw blood. One doctor asked the other while poking my son with a needle "is that a vein or a tendon?". Meanwhile my son spent fifteen minutes screaming bloody murder while they failed to draw enough blood. Never again will I go here. I will stick to Penrose hospital from now on. (in the last week)

Do not go here if you need surgery, they will only treat you like a seeker. They won't review your records to find out what's wrong, they will withhold food, medicine and water well over 24 hours with no regard to your care. Over night surgery turned into 6am, in the morning, sometime before noon, 2pm, 230pm, then finally 6... No food since noon the day before, no water since 9pm. Surely someone would have enough insight to see that breakfast could have been served, medicine could have been dispensed breathing treatments could have been given. No, none of the above, just frequently dosed with fentanyl. Guarantee if we were related to the surgeon, the care would have been significantly better. (a month ago)

I had to stay at that hospital overnight with my home care client on the sixth floor. Most of the nurses were really nice. It's just this one nasty nurse that made this visit so unpleasant. If I knew her name, I would report her so fast. I don't know how anyone can work in this field and just be plain nasty. God bless her, He'll deal with her. (a week ago)

I have been miserable for three days. I was dreading going to this ER because of my previous experiences, but I felt like I was dying! This ER has improved DRAMATICALLY. wait time was down, and the whole thing flowed like a well-oiled machine. I wish I got all the names of everyone who helped me today, but thank you for taking such good care of me. Friendly nurses, AND they're AWESOME at their jobs?? Very rare, but I'm very grateful for everyone who helped me feel better. Also I have no bruising from my I.v. so that's super awesome! (3 months ago)
