I was here for an appointment and it was my first time visit to this hospital. And I was very pleased to see that the people who worked here were extraordinary; they were kind, compassionate, warm, friendly and at the same time, highly knowledgeable.
From the time I entered the facility, everybody was at their best self and greeted me in with a warm smile and made me seated and offered me water as well. The whole place is very welcoming because it is well-kept and hygienic.
I liked the services they offer here and would definitely come back if I have to.

Anybody who has the ability to see could have easily understood that I was in excruciating pain but the human who was at the reception desk of this hospital did not seemed to be moved by my pain at all. She made me wait for like 3 hours to give me a number and when I tried speaking to her about making the process fast for me, she refused to speak even a single word to me.
Why does this hospital even have an emergency department when they cant cater to any emergency situations in the first place. I don’t think anybody should even come her, especially not in emergency situations.

The hospital has managed to appoint gems in their labor and delivery ward, who are the most compassionate people I have ever met. They don’t treat you just like a token number and your value is much more than that. They treat you like a human being.
The staff have good knowledge about things and go about it in a meticulously planned manner. In my case, when I delivered my baby, they sent their nurses to my place in order to conduct a few tests, which helped me save my trips to the hospital. .

The ER of this hospital is a big joke. They do not have value for their time or ours. But once you get past the ER, things take a turn for the better. The doctors are nice and so are the nurses; all of them take care of you phenomenally well.
But when you go there, the ER can prove to be a pretty long wait for you. My husband took me there because of abdominal pain and I was made to sit there like a statue for almost 6 hours and I am not exaggerating about this. Till I was taken in, nobody had any clue in how much pain I was or what was causing it and none of them even bothered to take a second look at me although they passed by my side many a times.
So, if I have to be at the ER of this hospital, then I better choose another hospital that can serve me better and that too on time. Please do not make the mistake of stepping into the ER of Abington.

A few months back, I experienced a severe painful pressure around my heart region but it looked like a normal chest pain due to gas formation (and was later revealed as heart attack). I was brought in here by an ambulance and was immediately taken care of by the ER department before later transferring me to the cardiology department.
The ER guys handled the situation really well and I would say that day, if not for them, my life would have been at risk. I think I have been really fortunate to have those nurses look after me so well. all of them knew very well what needs to be done in a particular situation and even in the midst of their busy schedule, they seemed to care, always wore a smile as their most precious jewel and had time to be friends with patients like me.
I must say such nurses are an asset to the hospital and with me, the hospital has done a fantastic job by saving my life.
