Huntsville Memorial Hospital is a wonderful hospital that takes really good care of its patients. We were greeted by a great staff at the information desk who helped us fill out forms and we were later ushered into the ER. When the ER visit finished very quickly, we decided to go to the cafeteria. What amazed us was that every employee, literally every employee, had a smile on their faces; be its medical team, cafeteria, information desk, and even gift shop. This is rarely seen in any major hospital. It reassured us that we were in safe hands.

Thrice I have visited the Huntsville Memorial Hospital outpatient surgery department. Each time I was treated very well. The nurses, lab technicians, and doctors were very great. They explained to me in detail what was my injury and how they are planning to address it and what the surgery entailed. It was a very good experience each time. The medical team while being very professional was friendly, cheerful and had an ever-present smile on their faces.

The only thing which sort of takes the sheen off of the hospital is the aggressive nature of getting their payments. If they can mellow down a little bit, then this hospital would truly be the best hospital in the neighborhood.

In March, my husband was rushed to the Huntsville Memorial Hospital (HMH) Emergency Room with an ever-increasing abdominal pain. The “great” staff at HMH diagnosed him as having constipation, and he was discharged home with a bottle of laxative. The pain did not relent even after three days, and he was sent to HMH to get scanned for suspected gall stones, which unfortunately was confirmed. The doctors recommended surgery, and we agreed to it. However, an alert doctor, on a repeat CAT scan, noticed a pancreatic mass and immediately stopped the surgery. They suggested us to visit Houston since they felt it could be cancer. Fortunately, it just turned out to be an infection.

Huntsville Memorial Hospital ER was useless and very expensive. The only credit I can give to them is getting an alert surgeon who noticed the mass and took a quick decision. Apart from that, this hospital does not deserve any credit. I would not be recommending this hospital to anyone.

Huntsville Memorial Hospital offers excellent inpatient services. My mother was a patient on HMH’s third floor, and we received the best care we could imagine. The care she got on this floor was excellent. Every single staff member starting from housekeeping staff to CNAs, nurses, charge nurses, were professional and very friendly. They answered every single question of ours, even if it was a very dumb question. They not only ensured that my mother understood everything, but they also made sure I understood it and answered whatever questions I had.

One can say that I am regular at Huntsville Memorial Hospital since this is the nearest hospital to my home. I have got numerous tests done, visited the ER many times and was even admitted twice or thrice to the inpatient department. During all these visits, I have found the staff to be very knowledgeable, very concerned and extremely professional. My most recent visit was two days back after I got hit by a baseball bat. The ER visit was very quick, and I was taken care of by an excellent team. I would recommend visiting Huntsville Memorial Hospital for all the medical needs.

This review is for an incident that happened a few months back, but it still hurts me. I had gone to the Huntsville Memorial Hospital ER at around 10:00 pm with severe back pain after a fall. I was taken in quickly and asked to wait for the doctor. I waited till 5:00 am in the near-deserted ER hoping that somebody would come. I even had a nap there. Finally, I could not stand the pain anymore and went in search of the nurse and asked her why the doctor did not come. She was surprised and went and checked with the doctor. His reply, “I forgot.” That was the last straw, and I left AMA. I do not recommend going to this piece of garbage.

The Huntsville Memorial Hospital is fairly clean, and it is the only positive point of this ridiculous hospital. I was forced to wait for nearly three hours in a deserted ER with a broken radial bone on my left arm as well as a fractured wrist. I still did not understand what the entire ER staff was doing when they had a patient who was literally crying in pain. Please go elsewhere. These guys do not care for their patients.

Huntsville Memorial Hospital has taken rapid strides in terms of improving their services. Now that includes not only patient care but also the food that is being served here. When I first visited HMH, the food was atrocious and was unfit for human consumption, at least in my mind. Last week, I visited the hospital with a friend and had a quick bite here. The food quality has improved a lot. They deserve a shout out.

The personnel is kind, friendly, and ensure that you are comfortable and it does not matter to them whether you are inpatient or outpatient. They always treat you well.

I had visited HMH for getting my medical records to take it for an appointment. When I got the records, I was shocked. My age was 31, and I had a smoking history of nearly 15 years. Funny, because I am 41 and have never touched cigarette or cigar in my life. I was lucky that I caught the mistake because it could have screwed my diagnosis and my insurance would not have touched even with a barge pole. When I pointed it out, the staff was very rude. I said that I needed it to be corrected and these buggers told me that it would take some more days. Great. It screwed up my appointment. However, I persisted and got the records corrected.

Huntsville Memorial Hospital ER is one of the worst in the country. The staff seemed very rushed. I had once gone there to address a wound on the leg, but I did not receive any satisfactory treatment. A few months back, my wife was in this ER after a three-vehicle collision. These idiots sent her home with a diagnosis of "bruised ribs." When the pain did not recede, we went to another hospital where scans showed four broken ribs and two displaced vertebrae. Please avoid going to this hospital lest you want to be misdiagnosed and end up with some serious health issue.
