Details:

I am not from the Girard area - I walked in and was seen by the staff immediately after they got my information. I was put in a room and the staff started working on me - drawing blood, putting in an IV catheter - I was having a CT done of my head probably within 30 minutes of getting into the room. The staff was phenomenal - very helpful! The head nurse treated me like I was her daughter. I couldn’t have asked for a better ER experience (with the exception of not having to go). I received a bill within a week and called to give them my insurance information because I didn’t have my insurance card with me at the time and they didn’t give me any problems. Very impressed with the hospital!!!
