I spent a week at the Baptist Health in Louisville KY. In the one week that I was there, these people changed my bed only once. I saw the cleaning lady maybe once. Thanks to the “excellent cleanliness,” I had to receive treatment for rashes. I had expected much better treatment from such a large hospital. The medical care was good, and the doctors were to the point. But no medicines are enough if there is a complete lack of hygiene in the room. I won't visit again.

I had a wonderful experience at this place. The doctor was a good gentleman who had excellent bedside manners. He knew how to interact with a 10-year-old and how to calm him down. The nurses and the front desk, and the techs were also superb and took great care of my child. The doctor was able to evaluate him while talking and have to say; he did an excellent job. Thanks to the exceptional care, my son is on the mend. Thanks

Baptist Health in Louisville, KY, is a great hospital. It is set on a large area and also has the facility of Life Flight Helicopter. The ER team is great; very compassionate, friendly, helpful, highly knowledgeable, and competent. They would walk the extra mile if it would help in making the patient well again. My friend was rushed here through the LifeFlight, taken to the ER and then transferred to ICU, where she spent nearly a week. Great care
