I recently had a knee surgery at Community regional and didn’t know the hospital very well so when my knee started draining fluid late last night, I freaked and called my PCP. He was unavailable, so I called up Community Regional and they asked me to come in right away. They took really good care of me and it wasn’t just because the surgery was performed there. Other patients feel the same way, ALL the staff members are very affectionate and kind. Not one bitter soul here, I like it!

I don’t know how anyone finds their way while walking through the halls at Community Regional. I have been here about three times now, each time for my dad’s surgery, and each time I get lost. It’s about time they considered my suggestion of including more signage so that people like me can navigate their way correctly for a change. And I’m actually really good with directions. That’s enough to say how much they really need them.

The good part, though, is that people are very helpful. In a previous hospital, they had something called a floor assistant or something (never heard that profession before) but over here, all you need ask are the nurses or receptionists. They are all friendly people who will gladly help you. This is the only upside to the place, otherwise, it’s a very average hospital. Also, because of the confusion, I’ve never felt safe enough to stay overnight.

The ER could use some extra help. I don’t know why but the receptionist at the ER seems to be really depressed in life, she keeps bringing it up into every conversation she has with patients. But clearly it is reflecting in her work because she literally SKIPPED my name- so I ended up waiting for an hour longer than I had to, and after I reminded her, I had to wait for another 45 minutes to get that fixed. Ignorance is the last thing one should expect from an ER. Disappointed.

My history with his hospital is hilarious. Almost like I was destined to keep coming back here. (I swear I’m not usually this dramatic). But hear me out: the first time I heard about this hospital from my best friend, she told me it was the ideal spot to give birth. Of course back then, I didn’t even have a boyfriend, let alone the idea of giving birth. But when I found myself hyperventilating late one night with a high fever, I rushed myself to the Community Regional ER. It wasn’t the best way to start off my experience with this hospital. Guess first impressions really do count.

Anyway, I was asked to wait at the waiting area in the ER and it was rather crowded. An old, sweaty man was sitting next to me and kept falling onto my shoulder while dozing off. I waited for more than 45 minutes before going back to the reception counter and asking them when my turn would arrive. They said on average it took about 2-3 hours of waiting per patient on a typical Wednesday night. I was shocked. Even though I’d waited for 45 minutes, I stormed out after picking up a fight with the rude receptionist.

Ended up going to another hospital and waiting for 2 hours before getting to see a doctor. Never told anyone that story lol. But funnily enough, I had to come back to this hospital years later when I got pregnant with my first child and my best friend booked an appointment to check out the L&D department at CRH. At first, when I heard that, I laughed. Almost like I was sure I wasn’t going to like it but decided to check it out anyway- it was free after all.

But once we got there and I met my potential OB, I fell in love with the practice. Everything was so neat and clean, the people here were nothing like the ER staff, everyone I met was very friendly and all smiles. In short, it did look like the ideal place to give birth. So I stuck with it. And I’m glad I did because it was a smooth delivery in a beautiful, spacious room. Recommend the L&D unit alone, not the ER at CRH.

Best. Service. Ever. I would know; this was my third time delivering in this hospital and DAAAAMN. My OB is by far the best badass OB/GYN there is in this country. Despite the level of complicated your pregnancy might be, Dr. Ley-Ley has got your back. But it’s not just her, this hospital is amazing.
There is this serene, calming aura as soon as you enter (it’s kind of eerie sometimes how calm it is in here). But it’s ideal for giving birth, so no complaints from me. My sister in law also gave birth here last week and had a hoot.

I don’t like people who bond with patients. It's just so darn unprofessional. I'm a medical professional myself and I know how dangerous that can be- for both the patient and the doctor/nurse. Your job is to cure the patient, NOT bond over outfits.
I was admitted temporarily in this shared room with another woman, probably in her mid-40s.

As I tried to get some sleep, I was awoken by the chattering away of 2 loud ladies, one of which was the patient, and the other was a nurse. Apparently they’d bonded over some outfit the patient came in, and this conversation went on for a good 30 minutes. I really tried to hold it in but finally asked them to shut up and stop disturbing patients.

Even though I later apologized for my rude outburst, I felt it was my responsibility to call the nurse out on her bullshit. She doesn’t get paid by the medical practice to make nice with the patients, but to do her job diligently, which she clearly wasn’t doing.

I never thought I’d see the day where I was complimenting cafeteria food, but hey, community regional will help change your mind. I’m talking actual homemade entrees and they are amazing. They make it on site, so you know that it’s nothing harmful. Also the fact that you're buying food from a hospital (because they wouldn’t want you to fall sick on account of them). But more than that, the prices are what caught my attention. It actually allows you to heap your own entrees. It might be a little downscale to load up on cheap food, but hey, it’s good quality. I’m just a frugal person.

I have given birth twice, both were C-sections and both were at this hospital. Have had 2 other surgical procedures done here apart from the births, and that was why I chose this hospital for my birthing surgeries. The surgeons are very professional and knowledgeable. The anesthesiologists here are amaze unlike other hospitals. The nurses are very helpful and sweet.
