When I was a kid Centinela was one of the best hospitals on our block. But now that I come back here with my 10 year old I realize how much its changed. More like hospitals everywhere else are adapting to the technology change of late but somehow Centinela lags. And it shows in its performance as well.

Clearly the employees are not thrilled to work here either it’s a very sad vibe when you enter. My daughter is 10 years old and she needs a heart transplant. I know what you’re thinking.. why bring her to this hospital if you don’t believe in it? But here’s the thing. I did used to believe in it so when I talked to a friend who said I should go to Centinela, I didn’t think about it. If only I knew what a horrible decision that was going to be.

My daughter had some unnecessary complications arise because of this dumb ass hospital. They claimed she would need a blood transfusion even though she didn’t and then they tried to turn it around on me and make it seem like I misheard. But I wasn’t letting it go, I told them I would sue them if anything were to happen. To which they responded, but nothing happened so let’s not overreact. Oh I’m sorry it’s just that she’s my only daughter and YOU ARE A BUNCH OF IDIOTS!

Staff is helpful, friendly and supportive. Been here only once before and ever since it has improved. A lot has changed it looks bigger although dingier. But had no issues with the hospital. In fact so far everything has been going perfect- nurses, doctors are very witty and knowledgeable.

A hospital that respects you and treats you well shows in the patient’s recovery. My father who had a massive heart surgery was showing no signs of progress until he was shifted to Centinela. At first I was angry at the hospital for making him move around like that when he should be resting. But honestly the kind of treatment he got from Centinela was just insane. A good insane of course…

At Valley Presbyterian the doctors and srugeons were good but they didn’t have great people skills. Like if one of them saw me cry in the hallway they would probably walk the other way or just pretend like they didn’t see me. So many awkward glances I’ve received at this hospital that I was glad we shifted. But at the same time I was nervous how it was going to be at a new hospital. Especially since the surgery happened at Presbyterian I figured it wasn’t a good sign that he was being shifted to another hospital.

They weren’t the ones that operated on him after all. But I was very wrong. The people at Centinela really showed me what humanity and compassion looked like. Not just my father but all of us were treated equally well. They would give us quick recaps on what had happened and let us in on what was going to happen next .and rest assured they didn’t have to tell us, after all it is recovery. But the fact that they want us to be a part of it is what really made us want to write this review.

The entire family approves of Centinela and have agreed that if anything like this happens to any one of us we will come back here. Also my dad is looking better now hasn’t fully recovered just as yet but he’ll get there. Thanks to the amazing team of doctors at Centinela I can finally go back home and sleep in peace.

Don’t like parking at centinela they have increased the parking rates from 6 to 12 dollars an hour. Just scamming off patients. Talked ot one of the staff members who said they also have to pay 12 dollars to park!!!! What a disgrace this is to think that it’s a hospital simply robbing off their own employees and patients. Very disappointed.

Sign up for the worst health care of your life at this hospital. The nurses are cruel and will poke you every other hour for “vitals”- how it changes every hour is beyond me btw. They will talk back to you, bark at you- all with no reservations.

Almost like they think they’re the best hospital in town and they don’t care about their reputation taking a hit. Clearly they don’t because no one likes this hospital anymore. Not even the old people.

I gave a nurse a good piece of my mind when she stuck an IV needle in my arm and just walked out of the room because someone called her- HELLO? I called her incompetent and she rolled her eyes at me.

Strange thing is you won’t see single doctor here only nurses PAs RNs NPs….when you ask where doctors are they say they will be here in hour but never come. My son admitted for 3 days and we still see no doctor only NP was in charge.
