Doesn’t HIPPA apply here- how is it that you can find random people in the hallway discussing your medical condition? I’m not a private person or anything but really.. there’s a reason such laws are in place.I was born with a rare blood disease and ever since I feel like every hospital I go to people take the liberty of coming up to me and pretend like I’m some sort of a freak of nature.I remember in the previous university hospital that I went to I had an intern come up to me and ask me if she could write a paper on me. If only she was the first person to say that to my face…The hospital is not too shabby though, not going to complain about the efficiency with which the doctors carry out their medical responsibilities. They take good care of ya…

Got a hernia after working out 2 days ago and it hurt like hell. I was told that chestnut hill hospital – which is right around the corner for me- provides excellent health care. My sister told me this years ago when she gave birth there. I being a hospital hater never tried it out.. until 2 days ago. They are great. The service is insane.. they actually come up to you and ask you if you need anything to ease the discomfort.

From what I’ve read on online reviews people have to wait in long queues sometimes in the cold. So compared to what I had in mind, it was a lot better. I had to wait in a spacious, clean room for the doctor to come see me. She joined me in 15 minutes and they did all the examining and testing. I was in and out in less than 2 hours- again, very unexpected. The prescription was given and I felt better in no time. Thank you for your service.

Where is the option to rate it “no stars?” Cuz that’s how bad it was. How it is still up and running is beyond me, what with all the useless people working at it. So many lawsuits filed against them still they manage to stand tall. When I fell from a flight of stairs last year they wrapped up the wound and discharged me. I found out later on that there was internal bleeding, ofcourse by going to another hospital. Sued them.. and yet somehow they managed to win. Vicious lawyers on their side. So it’s better not to go here.

Attentive staff. Remember coming here years ago when I used to live in Philadelphia, now moved out so it’s been years.. but the same old attitude towards patients. They renovated the place it looks a lot nicer now. There’s a whole new wing added to the left side and its super clean.

The only quality hospital in all of Philly that I can count on. My baby boy is 2 years old now and for the first time ever he’s been having fevers consistently- almost every other weekend. He had this condition as soon as he was born and he had to stay at the hospital for a few weeks before coming home for the first time. I was freaking out and since my husband is out of town I knew I had to take him to his birth place- Chestnut Hill. Our pediatrician also works here, so that explains why this is basically a shrine for us. But what I like about them is that we don’t get special treatment.

Yeah, I don’t like that some people just expect royalty treatment in a hospital just because they’ve been going there for long… it’s like, so what? At chestnut hill it’s like you get to go in when it’s your time. You can make an appointment if you are on a time crunch but otherwise you’ll have to wait a little. Still, the pediatrics department (and ER department) is amazing!!!

It’s the only hospital I’ve seen where they care a little too much for the patients- some say that’s unnecessary but any extra love for my baby is justified. He’s also familiar with a lot of the faces from the hospital and recognizes our pediatrician quite well so we wouldn’t dream of changing to a different hospital. Of course for an OCD person like me it appeals to me that this hospital is basically spotless. And trust me I’ve done some sneaking around and checked their closets too (shhh!) Great hospital.

Nursing assistants are the backbone to this hospital they do everything from running around and getting you medicine to caring for you. And they treat you with utmost love and care just like a mother would treat you .Very satisfied with my experience here , was only there for 3 days , still loved it.
