My mother is in ICU and I have never seen such dedicated nurses AND Doctors. Gina has been amazing!! Tolerating my family day and night and caring for my mother as if she were her own. Dr Keene is the epitome of what a Dr should be and his compassion, bed side manner and honestly is without a doubt the best I’ve encountered in my ENTIRE life. Everyone is helpful and compassionate. Best ICU ever. I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so wonderful. (in the last week)

My wife's grandmother had a stroke and we chose Vassar after hearing good things about the facility. Well I now know that was all BS. Cause the care here is terrible. The nursing staff is semi efficient. But mostly inefficient. The first doctor had no bed side manner and a patently no clue to the severity of the stroke.. He told us to make funeral arrangements cause her life was over. My wife was instantly in tears. I started making phone calls to family and then the second doctor came in and said they were keeping her for several days to evaluate. An she would be seen by therapists for speech. physical etc. So we felt relieved a little comfort it would be a little bit to her admitted we ok with that and then six nurse changes an 8 hours later were still waiting. What a terrible hospital. (3 weeks ago)

If i could give it a BIG FAT ZERO i would! but you wouldn't be able to see my review then. Pore quality isnt the word! the nurses are rude.. "too many chiefs and not enough indians"... my mother was soo upset that she was crying. Do NOT Recommend.. Please for the sake of your sweet familys go elsewhere !! (in the last week)

This Hospital should be shut down due to incompetence and lack of cleanliness. I was brought in by ambulance in excruciating pain and was put on a stretcher in the hallway of their Emergency room. I wasn't seen by anyone for over an hour. My stretcher was right in front of their dirty laundry room. There was filth every where. Black mold on the floor, dirt, syringe parts, garbage pouring out of garbage in bathroom, urine cups with urine still in them totally disgusting. The sheets on my cot were dirty and they drew blood right there on a filthy stretcher. They were trying to take an EKG there where everyone could see you with your shirt up. Real COMPETENT! People coming to take you for tests couldn't find you so they are yelling out your name. After 4 1/2 hrs I was discharged with a diagnosis of gallstones and sludge. With the instructions see a surgeon and if the pain gets worse come back. 7 hours later still in excruciating pain I returned with my husband and put into a make shift emergency room that was a conference room. The care in there was hideous, a nurse took blood which the needle was in wrong, both of my veins were butchered. I went for a nuclear test for my gallbladder came back down was told by ER DR that my GI DR saw the pictures and was going to do a endoscopy to remove the blockage. The admitting DR said I was being admitted and endoscopy would be done 1st thing in the morning. Now GI DR comes over says I need my gallbladder removed and a surgeon would see me soon, I was admitted and had to sleep in the ER. with all the other sickness patients and filthy conditions. My IV they left in my arm was bleeding, no surgeon ever came to see me, he said maybe in the morning.... So they wouldn't let me out because of the stone blockage but no surgeon consult until the next day, sleep in the ER, I demanded to see the director of the ER she came in and of course tried to BE me it didn't work. I walked right of there in excruciating pain and all. I drove myself to Hudson Valley Hospital Center they noticed my veins in my arm and couldn't believe it, and in 4 hours was in surgery. I wouldn't bring my dog to Vassar Brothers. INCOMPETENT INCOMPETENT INCOMPETENT!!!!!!!! (4 months ago)

As a patient currently being treatedon south circle 4..Ellen the nurse should have her license revoked. She came on at 9am on 062618..tried to give me a med that was on hold. The next time i saw her was at 420pm when she tried once again to give me a med that was on hold. Gave me pain meds..i was due for meds again at 720pm. After pushing the call button, the tech called her and had no idea what she was talking about. At 740 i pushed the button again..the tech came..called Ellen again..i was told it was shift change. I pressed the call button again at 8pm same tech came back..by this time Ellen was gone for the day. Ellen needs to go work somewhere without human contact.Still in Vassar it is now 062718 9pm est. Shiftchange once again..nothing but problems. If u need a hospital try not to come to this one. (3 weeks ago)
