I didn’t know that this was part of Holy redeemer health system but good for them. One of the nicest hospitals I’ve been to with a luxurious 242 bed system. Rooms are nice and spacious you won’t have any complains there. They have close to 500 doctors alone and plenty morning and night shift working nurses. All in all I’d give it a 4.8 star rating for their diligence, honesty, and overall compatibility. They also have good rehab programs and home health services available if you ever need to check that out. Good luck!

Surgeons are butchers: will cut you open even when it’s not necessary. I came in for a simple medical checkup and in less than 24 hours they were cutting me open, looking for something that wasn’t even there. Don’t trust them. The hospital aesthetic is also not so pleasing. It looks very run down.

Don’t like the way they treated wife when she was brought here to er section a few days ago because of a horrific allergic reaction. She’s allergic to a bunch of things so we are still unsure of what caused the reaction. But after a morning walk on a hill we came back and she had difficulty breathing. She said she felt like her throat was closing up.

We ignored it and we got dressed for work. By the time we were leaving her throat had swollen and she was coughing while trying to catch her breath. It was a pretty scary sight, so we didn’t wait for another second. Drove her to Holy Redeemer’s er and even though it wasn’t close and there was a shit tonne of traffic, we made it on time.

I told the receptionist that my wife was having a horrible allergic reaction and they could see it too, she was standing right next to me. At this point her face had taken on a light shade of blue. Clearly she was not lying when she said her throat was closing up. You won’t believe this, but the first thing the receptionist asked was, “name and insurance?”

Are you freaking kidding me there’s a woman here who looks like she’s going to explode and all you care about is the insurance? Was so disgusted by this. After I gave the details I had to sit and fill out forms. I asked them in the meantime if they could take her inside but she shot a dirty look in my direction.

My poor wife clung onto me like her life depended on it and waited for 15 whole minutes before they called her name. I was so surprised at this behavior. After they got her admitted I decided to give a piece of my mind to these dumbwits. I ran into a case manager and explained this to him. How they’d basically valued the insurance over my wife’s life.

We all know allergic reactions. Anaphylactic shock is not a joke. The fact that she could’ve died was not clear to them. After I spoke my mind the case manager, who was clearly waiting for me to finish said, “We saw her. She didn’t look as bad as other patients.” So then there has to be a problem with their triage system because I was with my wife the whole time, I KNOW that was an emergency.

I’m not the only one in my family with an affinity towards efficient medical care, my teenage daughter recently enrolled into nursing school and is doing well. One of the best hospitals I’ve worked in, some of the best doctors I’ve worked with. The weird doctor-nurse relationship you see at other medical practices, you won’t find that here. From patients that have come here I know that the paperwork gets processed fast and diagnostically speaking, this hospital is amazing.

Have been coming to Holy Redeemer for 3 years now ever since I moved to Pennsylvania. Have a few thoughts: first of all try improving upon the parking lot, please. I am sure this is not just a request from me but everyone who has ever been a patient here. It’s not possible to drop off a patient at the entrance and just leave. And rather, where do we park if all the parking space is taken up by the medical staff? Pssh.

Brought this up once with one of the surgeons at this hospital and he just nodded with me and agreed that it was a problem. But still no progress on this. When it comes to cleanliness I couldn’t with a clear conscience say that I liked it here. It’s not filthy, you can’t see garbage lying about but there is this weird smell. And it’s not just one day. It’s every day. The employees can’t even tell the difference at this point. It’s like blood+febreeze+iron. Ugh.

Never again, that’s all I’ll say. For someone who was taken to the “emergency” room the staff didn’t seem up to the task. They work slowly, take their sweet time to come tend to the sickly patients no matter the rush. The nurses just back them up with their disgusting cover stories but whatever. All I know is, never again.
