Mixed reviews. The hospital outside of the new ER is dated and small. Nursing was good. The doctor was adequate. The employees in the cafetaria were offensive. Brought the issue up with hospital adminstrator, Geraldo Lyons, who I met in the hallway. My wife and I were shocked literally by his response. We signed out my mother out AMA and went to Holy Cross down the street.
