They claimed that our father was in hospice care. The ICU left a tube in his nose that was not discovered for three days which caused him horrendous suffering in addition to the pneumonia he had. They took three hours to get his pain meds at one point while he struggled horribly.they claim to have hospice/palliative care but the doctor who supposedly runs this program was never mentioned. My sister who is an inter Elise said the way this was handled is a disgrace. We don't want anyone else to have to go through what we and our loved one suffered. The staff did not seem to care in the least both before and after he died. The nurse even told us they were calling the funeral service then they didn't do it. Turns out that we were suppose to do it. We went to the nurse to ask what was taking so long. She then told us she was wrong but she never came to the room to tell us that she hadn't called and that we were supposed to do it. We intend to hold the hospital to task for the most appalling, insensitive "treatment" in an end of life situation imaginable. We are sick about this.

In November of 2011 I went to the emergency room with a stomach ache-a residual effect of severe stomach pain from the night before. The doctor was an Indian man and his last name began with an "S"...don't have the paperwork in front of me. I had ultra sound done and when I inquired if there was anything there to be concerned about his response was, and I quote, " We're not very good at figuring these things out, you'll have to go see a doctor." What they are good at is charging astronomical fees! He was an arrogant, obnoxious idiot. It's been bothering since I went there...I still want to report him.

This was the worst experience I have ever had in a hospital. The day prior to my procedure, I called to get the time. I was told they didn't have that yet and they would call me later. I did get a call later, inquiring about my medical history but the woman did not have the time and I was told I would receive another call. I never received the call. At 7am the following morning I called again and was told to be there by 7:30am. I told her it was impossible. She called me back a few minutes later and said 3:30 pm. I arrived at 3pm and inquired about the schedule and was told "everything is on time." at 3:30 I was taken into the prep room and sat in the bed for over 3 hours before my procedure took place. I was approached by an anesthesiologist who stated he heard I requested him and reviewed my chart stating I was allergic to versed. I stated I did not request him and did not know what versed was. I am now very uncomfortable. When my physician arrived he told me he spoke to the hospital the prior day to let them know his schedule and he did not know why they requested I come in so early. I had my procedure, the physician and nurse were great and the anesthesia was fine. After the surgery I asked the anesthesiologist what he used and his answer to me was "the good stuff." I personally found the reply insulting. Regardless of how good the medical service is in this hospital the support staff will surely discourage patients from returning. I know I would not return or recommend this facility to anyone I know.

Construction underway for new patient wing and surgery center--expected to be completed in 2010. Present facilites are very clean and maintained--though parts of the facility are somewhat dated. Except for emergency room staff--the doctors are all in private practice with privileges. Kind and attentive Magnet award winning nursing staff. Diagnostic services staffers (x-ray, MRI, hematology etc.) also very kind and good. Overall staff morale appears good and hospital management strives to maintain high quality services. Meals are pretty good with plenty of popular items to pick from on the menu. Good care received in the emergency room, and on 3rd floor east.

Don't believe it when they say they have palliative/hospice care. My father-in-law was tortured and died horribly. It was a traumatic situation that even the intervention of our whole family could not prevent. It was disgusting, cruel and unforgivable.
