St. Joseph Hospital is not a nonprofit Catholic Hospital. Period.

They are the antithesis of non-profit. My friend had to undergo a total hip replacement as it was bone-on-bone and she was in intense pain. Added to it was the fact she was recently bereaved, and her insurance had expired. Talk of a triple whammy. We had learned that St. Joseph does donate its facility for people who are in desperate need of surgery but cannot afford complicated and costly surgeries.

Feeling happy, we decided to meet a surgeon who would agree to do the surgery, and we were lucky to get a nice surgeon who offered to do it, provided we got the facility.

Feeling very positive, we applied to St. Joseph. We were very hopeful as we had met all the criteria. However, the day before yesterday, we received a letter from St Joseph stating that my friend was planning to undergo elective surgery and it was not a real emergency. Not only us, but even the surgeon was also left stunned by the reply.

Who the bloody #$%^ would want to replace their hips for fun. I would not. Would You? It seems the idiots who run the hospital does not know the meaning of and difference between elective and emergency. From them, the real emergency might be when her legs fall off or when she is completely bedridden. Elective, my foot. Completely outraged.

My father was recently admitted to this hospital. This happened while the rest of the family had been out of town. Our neighbor called us and said that my dad had suffered a fall and he got my dad admitted to CHI St. Joseph. We got worried and contacted the hospital for updates and to inform them that we were on our way. The lady who answered the call had a cool and calming voice and the way she spoke instantly put us at ease. She volunteered to get the status and said she would call back within ten minutes. She called back in five and told that my dad was okay but had to undergo surgery to address a fracture. We reached the hospital late at night. However, even this late, they allowed me to see my father and said that the surgery was successful and he would be fit and fine in a month or two. Highly impressed. Everyone whom we interacted with was extremely considerate and helpful. My dad was discharged after a week. I highly recommend this great hospital. Great service

My daughter had a T&A (Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy) performed at CHI St. Joseph. Excellent staff. Professional, accommodating and very courteous. Every step was explained in layman's terms, right from anesthesia to post-op and recovery. The procedure was done very quickly. My daughter was provided with excellent aftercare. Personal, heartfelt thanks. CHI St. Joseph rocks!

Worst hospital…would never step into this hospital again. I had gone to the ER for a perceived heart attack. The staff was very rude to me. The front desk receptionist kept on cutting my sentence and made fun of me. The doctor, a nice lady, diagnosed me with stress anxiety and prescribed me anxiolytics. The torture did not end there…these idiots wrongly coded me and I ended up with a bill of $5,000. I was coded as a trauma patient! I tried to call the billing department but was not able to get through initially. I got through after the third attempt but did not receive a satisfactory answer for their mistake. They said it was my mistake and I was wasting my time, and they won’t be changing the bill. I'd rather die but won’t enter this building

Most disrespectful nurses ever. This used to be a top-tier hospital but has been destroyed by some of the most filthy, illiterate, and absolutely disgusting staff. I have also heard stories and witnessed how HIPPA has been flagrantly violated on a repeated basis. Not sure why are they not shut down.

My wife was transferred to CHI St. Joseph from another ER due to certain complications. While the ER was great, but they had their limitations and transferred her care to CHI St. Joseph. Though annoyed a bit at first, I decided to ahead and am very happy that I listened to them. The quality of care was awesome. Everyone was friendly, caring and highly considerate. Excellent doctors, nurses, and staff!!!!
