This is a wonderful, modern facility which has caring nurses and skilled doctors and no wonder this is one of the best hospitals in this part of the woods. I am not sure about other departments, but the Pediatric ER rocks and steals a march over all other departs. The maternity ward is also world class, but the Pediatric ER is the best.

Chilton Hospital has turned into a shit show. The quality of service at the ER facility has seen a rapid decline. The facility jumps into action only if you are on the verge of death, not before. I am not surprised that the hospital’s advertisements do not contain wordings “fast ER VISIT” anymore.

My son had a fall from his bike and got lacerations on his knees. Additionally, he passed out for a few fleeting seconds. We rushed him to the ER where it took a physician nearly three hours to look at him and tell there was no need of any stitches. Three hours???? I can understand the delay if the ER had many patients, but when we went, there was hardly anybody in the ER room. Even after we told the doctor that our son had passed out, there were no orders for either an MRI or CT.

It is due to this sloppy work that Urgent Care Centers are popping up all over the place. These locations not only see you promptly; they are also clean and have friendly and professional staff. The icing on the cake – no billing hassles.

I visited this shithole for kidney stones. I was in severe pain for nearly a week and had reached a stage where morphine was no longer working. I visited the ER hoping that they would increase the dosage while waiting for it to pass out. I get a scan and show it to the doctor, who very coolly says, “Well you have three stones, and we need to get them out.” Duh!! As if I did not know that. She asked me to wait for some time…which invariably turns to a six-hour wait and they finally come and say, “ Sorry, but your stones are an inch long, and we do not have the equipment to blast it out.” Had I not be in severe pain, I would have been in court, being tried for homicide.

While in the ER, two nurses came to fix an IV line. Guess what, neither of them knew how to fix it. Come on, you are nurses, and they even had a machine that exposed the veins under infra-red lighting. It just made my horrible day even worse.

A sincere request to everyone, please do not come here. I wouldn't come again after my harrowing experience here.

Please stay away from this hospital! It is one of the worst hospitals I have encountered in my life, and I have visited many hospitals as part of my job. The hospital is disorganized. Compassion and empathy for the patients and their family members are utterly lacking in this hospital.

I have read a few posters saying Chilton is bad and other things, but my experience at this hospital was not short of great. My father was rushed to the Chilton with a ruptured appendix. Everybody, right from the nurses’ aides to nurses to the MD, was very professional and promptly attended to my father. They were very helpful and extremely attentive! Very conscientious of his needs.

Thank You!!

My family and I and my extended family have been regulars here. Whenever there is an emergency or any medical need, we head to Chilton, where we are promptly taken care of, and off we go with our lives. Yes, there are a few bad apples, but generally speaking, the hospital has some wonderful and highly professional staff.

A few months back, one afternoon my father started experiencing some left-sided chest pains. We first went to an Urgent Care center which directed us to go to the nearest emergency room. My dad was wheeled into Chilton. The staff and the doctors were attentive, professional and compassionate. Within minutes of arriving, they took an EKG, and at one point I was able to count eight workers who were monitoring my dad and doing various tests. It was revealed that he had a minor stroke.

The MDs quickly started the treatment and after a day of observation gave all clear to my dad. I must say that I am not only highly impressed, but also very grateful. I would highly recommend this hospital for all the medical requirements.
