As part of my work, I have been to many hospitals, and based on whatever I see, I think Grays Harbor is the safest place to send my family for medical care. Across the country, community hospitals are finding it difficult to survive because they have to serve a lot of people who do not have insurance and various other factors.

Coming to Grays Harbor, this hospital is clean and offers various critical services to the local community. Trust me, whenever you need them, they would be beside you.

Many people make a big hue and cry about not getting proper attention or high bills or not having a fancy lobby. To all those people, I would humbly request writing to the local congressman for increased funding and also to the insurance carrier to bring down the high charges. If this hospital closes down, then one would have to drive to Olympia for getting good care, and that is not an option for many people in need of emergency care but lack insurance...

Had a wonderful hospital experience at Grays Harbor Community Hospital radiology department. I had a very quick and efficient check-in. I was called for my exam within 10 minutes of the appointment time. The tech who was assisted by her intern was very capable and also kind. Thanks to the presence of a bathroom in the department, I did not have to change into a gown during the first part of the scan. I just had to take a few steps before I could use the bathroom. Once I emptied, these capable technicians completed the second part of the ultrasound scan in quick time. I was on my way in an hour. My sister-in-law also underwent an exam a few days ago, and she was also singing praises about this facility. I am happy that we have such a wonderful hospital in our neighborhood

The ER visit at Grays Harbor was quick. My wife and I went there early in the morning. They took great care of my wife, ordered blood work, and took chest x-rays and conducted a few other tests, and we were on our way home. Everything was completed under four hours. During the whole time, the nurses and their assistants kept on updating me about her progress.

I have seen many reviews in various forums, including yelp which disses the hospital, but these can’t be far from the truth. This is a top-notch hospital. Yes, it does not have facilities like those in many ultra-posh for-profit hospitals, but it does have an excellent staff who is ready to help others. I would always recommend this hospital for minor emergencies and medical needs.

This hospital just sucks. The place is not clean, and the wait time is terrible. If you ask me, this hospital should be shuttered. Those who love themselves and their family should take their care to Olympia.

As always, it is the billing department which destroys the reputation of a hospital. I had visited the ER and might have spent under an hour with the doctor and got one shot, and I get a bill of $1,300 – that's after the insurance had paid $2,735.5. It would have cost me much less had I gone to any other place. I went to meet the "patient advocate" regarding this. The so-called advocate graciously acknowledged the bill is expensive, but said it is high because a certain percentage of the local populace gets free care. So according to Grays Harbor Community Hospital, if you have income and seek treatment here, then you are bound to be screwed. Could not believe it!!!
