The diamond in the rough for hospitals- Eskenai health 100%. Back me up here, peeps. This has got to be the ONLY hospital that comes to mind when it comes to trauma centers. Okay before that, LOL I didn’t know Eskenai was earlier called Wishard- my boyfriend used to work there. Anyway the location of this hospital is 1. Very convenient for me, it’s on my way to work so coming here has never been an issue for me. 2. Very peaceful location- the landscape surrounding it is very calming and doesn’t look like a hospital and 3.

There’s plenty of natural sunlight that comes into the hospital from outside so kudos to the architects. Not only is the trauma center great but their burn unit is very efficient. I would say for a teaching hospital this place does a great job at including students in patient-care teams. And they slide in just fine. The doctors or mentors are professional and take good care of the patients and teach the students to do the same. Heard one of the doctors explaining to an intern that patient care always comes first.

Top notch care received at Eskenai health. Was here on a short business trip. Was not mentally prepard to go to the er anywhere. But glad it was here. They accommodated and welcomed me in a unique manner. Not like other hospitals I’ve been to. Doctors will talk to you during rounds in a friendly manner. You can ask them anything too.

Unlike the usual downtown hospitals Eskenai health is unusually clean. They have good staff members who provide excellent service. On time appointments, wont have to wait for too long. Sometimes when the hospital is full there might be a delay of a few minutes but that’s the extent of it. My 7 pm appointment got pushed to 730 max on a horribly rushed day. It’s not just me but my entire family that has been taken care of by Eskenai health. For example my mother who took a bad fall last month was brought here immediately because we knew she was in good hands.

Plus she’s only comfortable in so many hospitals.. Her arm was shattered.. all kinds of fractures in one arm alone. She had to have surgery done on her but again this was not a concern for any of us. My father has also had surgery done on him in this very hospital and two of the physicians were his classmates. So we always feel comfortable here. Another big misconception about this hospital is that it is very unorganized.

Read that review long ago about this hospital and wondered how anyone got that impression about this hospital. If anything it is one of the better hospitals in terms of organizational skills. You will get all your hospital bills and medical records mailed to you efficiently with no mix ups. They are very careful while handling documents, I know because I spoke to two of them who were handling my mother’s broken arm and I needed them to mail the docs to me.

Nice, clean hospital with great supporting staff. It’s not about the money for them otherwise they wouldn’t be sacrificing their social lives for this. Was only here as inpatient for 4 days but had a good time. Don’t know if I recommend the er it’s too crowded 24x7 and you’ll have to wait for long hours.

You should try the Women’s center of excellence. Indianapolis has so many hospitals, a lot of them are shitty. It’s hard to find which one works best for you but WCE has always been on top of my list. The best thing about them is how much they respect patients. Also their families. Their condition and suggestions are taken seriously, their queries are not left unanswered. The staff actually makes an effort to get involved and answer whatever questions need clarity. Even the experienced doctors. It’s not about hierarchy here. Even though the wait periods are not short the staff members always make it a point to apologize to the patient if they have to wait for much longer than they are told. Whether it’s the receptionist, a nurse or your physician, always good to know that they value your time just as much as you value theirs.

So. Freaking. Horrible. Words cannot describe my frustration towards this s**thole of a hospital. Not one staff member is attentive, everyone is busy passing along the goss. And I’m including dotors in this ..which is the sad part. They will come to your room will be taking your vitals while talkin to nurses.

Someone assured me that the wait time at this hospital is the least in Indianapolis.
Don’t know why I bother listening to people, it was worse than the previous hospital I’d gone to that made me wait for 4 hours for a freaking appointment!!!
Medical staff have no regard for human life, will literally just act like you’re invisible and go on with their lives.
It’s sad.

Monsters that work here. Don’t care about anything but themselves. Even when nurses, staff comes into room to check up on patients they will talk amongst themselves. No one maintains cleanliness. A doctor that saw another patient came into my room without cleaning his hands. How disgusting.
