Location and Directions


We are very pleased with service we received at the hospital. My aunt had a hip replacement, and the nurses on the 4th floor was super nice to us. After the surgery my aunt was transfer to a private room so one of the family member was able to stay with her. The room was very clean. (3 weeks ago)

I didn't have any issues..... this is my second time staying at the hospital. The emergency room took good care and even busy made sure I was comfortable despite the reason for my visit. They did their scans, samples, and everything else professionally and explained everything. Once admitted, the nurses and staff from the 5th floor made my stay peasant as can be. You can't pick your roommates but the staff handled them in as professionally as possible.... I was glad to be discharged but not cause of the hospital because you miss stuff from home..... thank you to the staff at University Hospital for making my stay as like my first stay pleasurable.

This hospital has great staff, clean and ok security. After receiving your visitors pass I’d suggest the security officers to give directions to each visitors and not be a wise ass when questioned in regards to navigating to desired rooms or floors. People are there to visitor friends and family so be considerate. Night time is not a good time to visit patients here, as you’d have to use the emergency entrance (good luck finding your way “again” no direction by security). Overall I like this place and am not known to like hospitals period... (2 months ago)

Worst nursing staff ever encountered! God forbid you ask them to do their jobs! It takes hours to get even basic care, forget emergency care! Took my mother there for anxiety issues 3/11 and she was treated like a psychotic patient. Returned after the Ativan they gave her made her hallucinate, she was admitted, but never fed, no iv fluids, no fluids at ALL! Nurses couldn't be bothered to help her to the restroom, or change the iv port that had blown out and caused her hand to swell & bruise. No patient privacy at all, overheard nurses making fun of elderly patient that had an "accident" because they couldn't be bothered to get her to the restroom either. 2nd floor nurses were rude, uncaring, zero compassion. Patient comfort is last thing on their list, no warm blankets, phone didn't work, couldn't even bring her food or water in twelve hours! We checked her out AMA, because they were causing more harm than curing. (2 months ago)

I wouldn't say it's comfortable, nice and quiet since it's in the hood. Truthfully saying, it's a ghetto. BUT you get a lot of tests and correct diagnoses from doctors and nurses give extra attentions and care of you. Though make sure to have someone bring you food, their food isn't good. It's a polar opposite from Aventura ER, where you would get misdiagnosed, incorrect medicines and lack of attention from nurses there while it's beautiful and comfortable with big TV and premium cable.
