Having the opportunity to work at EHMC was a real game changer for me.
I worked in the special service department for over 5 years and it was the most rewarding experience of my life, not even an ounce of exaggeration in that claim.
I even had the chance to go to other hospitals such as St John’s providence and to be honest, I think EHMC beats every other medical practice in the state in every respect: be it cleanliness, be it the quality of medical care, or even as simple as the level of affection from a medical staff.
I would recommend this hospital to everyone and the ER services are great (just ask my mom, she raves about them).

Did anyone else feel like punching the parking security in his face? They have the dumbest rule of not waiting for even a second by the entrance for the patient. Mind you, it’s a HOSPITAL. With SICK people. We have to keep moving and turning back to enter the hospital again. My poor mother had to wait for 2 minutes before I picked her up and she was very weak. Not cool.

There are a few people I know I will end up regretting if I don’t mention in this review because they are godsends. Truly. The entire hospital and all the medical staff are exceptional. I have never received medical care that exceeded my expectations by such a large factor. From the rooms, to the food, to the doctors, to the care. Everything honestly felt like I was getting some sort of special treatment, though I can assure you, I was not. It is how every patient is treated in this practice, which is what makes it so great for a review.

Dr. Dimsdale, to say in particular, as she took care of me and was my primary physician. She is the most kind person I’ve met in my entire life. Not just that she takes the time to sit down with you and your family members, answering questions, calming down family members, and discussing potential treatments, she also gets your procedure done quicker. She makes sure that you don’t have to wait for long hours in a waiting room for test results or surgeries. Everything is taken care of, and above all, your family knows exactly what to expect. It’s almost like she knows what’s going to happen, which is why many people gravitate towards her. Amazing person and if I ever fall sick again, I know who I’m going to without a second thought.

Also, my father had to get admitted later on for a cardiological issue and they ran a few tests and procedures in a smooth manner. What really warms my heart is how they have signed cards next to each patient by each member of the care team. Not a single person missed out. I really found this a relief and my father was pleased by it too. It’s a great way to boost your confidence before a scary procedure like a surgery. My medical procedure was a year ago and my dad’s was only last month, so I can say that within 11 months, a lot has improved.

They have updated their rooms and the cafeteria food even tastes better. I know it sounds like a joke, but I'm absolutely serious. If you have the option to choose a hospital in NJ, I’d say go with Englewood 100%. This is the only place in the United States where I felt like healthcare was actually about “caring” for their patients. Truly amazing work, guys.

The service at the emergency room is surprisingly good. They are fast and efficient, and are super friendly. From the medical interns all the way up to attendings, I think they were all equally nice and approachable. What can I say, I’m not used to having good experiences at hospitals. But this one was great.

I see posts where people say that this practice is amazing, and I have only one thing to say. This place really is amazing, if what you’re looking for is torturous behavior. I have never been on the receiving end of any kind of bullying in my life but even I felt a little betrayed by the end of it. First of all, I came rushing to the ER (on my own by the way) at 2:30 in the morning because I felt a tightness in my chest which was unbearable. There was also this numb pain that radiated through my chest.

Fearing that it might have been a heart attack, I rushed to the hospital. I told them how I felt and they looked at me like I was lying. They asked me if I was in pain, and I said, yes, kind of. They asked me to fill out some form and asked me to wait. I’m sorry, but if I were having a heart attack, was I really supposed to be filling out forms then? The most ridiculous thing I’d ever heard of. While I waited, I felt slight pangs of pain in my chest again and looked around for a doctor or at least a nurse. No one. And the ER didn’t even look that rushed. After three whole hours, I finally got to see a doctor who said it was just gas and said I could leave. LIKE WHAT?

Very nice, friendly staff who will stay with you at all times, checking up on you every other minute and an attentive doctor who checked up on me every half hour. My condition got stabilized because of this safe environment, I’m so sure of that. Thank you all for your support, much appreciated.
