My sister Andrea ended up at Desert Regional Medical Center after suffering traumatic brain injury while driving in Palm Springs about 360 miles from Marana, AZ, where we reside. We have been here for nearly 20 days and are being transferred to the trauma rehabilitation center. During our stay here, I've met every single person who works in the hospital. We could not be happier with the way these lovely folks have treated my sister. Nurses, doctors, phycologists, neurologists, security guards, even the coffee guy. You name a person, and they are excellent. What is fantastic is that everybody is on the same page here. No wonder Andrea has shown remarkable progress at this excellent place.

Personally, it was quite a shock when I heard the accident, and I am still coming to terms with it. If it were not the amazing sunset and sunrise views, the helpful nature of the staff and the lovely local homely food, I would have surely broken down and lost it.

I pray to God that nobody finds themselves with a loved one here. However, if they do, then you can stay at lodging provided by the hospital called Hanson House, about 200 feet away. The place has a very relaxed and calm atmosphere, is very clean and is extremely cheap. Thank you, DRMC, for taking good care of Andrea. Very satisfied. I would recommend this hospital to my friends and family

These are one lazy bunch of people. I had to visit the hospital about ten days ago with severe left-sided chest pain. Though I was taken in immediately and triaged, they made me wait for nearly four hours before a doctor came to see me. He saw me and prescribed some meds (luckily no heart attack). They took another hour before they gave me the meds and discharge papers. In short, spent five hours for a “five-minute” consultation…

Gave birth to a lovely girl at DRMC last month. I was under the care of a lovely nurse called Vicki in the L&D unit. She was outstanding! Couldn't have got a better nurse for my care. Also, a special Thank you to the ever helpful Dr. James Park for attending to me very quickly. There could not have been any better doctor than him to bring my peaches to this world. The on-call doctor, Dr. Nahar, was also excellent. This is my first, and if I am going to deliver again, then it would be at DRMC. A 10/10 for the wonderful effort by the staff. Thank you very much
