LVH in Muhlenberg is the best. My wife, while visiting the hospital, left her bag at the hospital. She did not realize it until the time she reached home. The bag contained money and other important documents. She was very distraught. But the security guard at the hospital came to her rescue. He realized that she had forgotten the bag and kept if for safekeeping till somebody from my family went and picked it up. My wife went and picked it up. We are highly appreciative of the security guard. A big thank you to him

My husband was seen, treated, and released within 45 minutes!! The staff is efficient and very courteous. The doctor was par excellence. He was genuinely nice and very helpful. We are not from this place, so were apprehensive about the care my husband might get at this place. They addressed all our concerns, and we walked out of the door very satisfied. Extremely grateful to the night staff

Has to be the worst hospital that one can ever come across. I have lived in five states and have visited numerous hospitals in these states. Staff is very rude, horrible, and do not have the courtesy of answering your questions. Doctors are worse. I had an issue with the service provided and lodged an official complaint. A person claiming from the hospital called me and asked my concern. They said they would get back. Guess what - it has been nearly six months and I have still not received an answer from them. Horrible customer service.

My wife had an incredible pregnancy experience. The nurses at LVH-Muhlenberg were incredible. Took excellent care of my baby and my wife. They were encouraging, kind, and knowledgeable. Always ready to provide any sort of assistance that we required. LVH-Muhlenberg also offered numerous classes for expectant mothers and fathers. These classes helped in clearing many of our doubts. Thanks to the wonderful care, my wife had a hassle-free delivery. The room that we got was huge, nice, and most importantly, super clean. The surprise element was the hospital food. It was delicious and something totally unexpected

A friendly staff that is very sincere in treating their patients. They did not give me any chance to complain. I wish aftercare nurses were also bit friendlier. Make no mistake, they were great, but it just seemed that they were going through the motion

I feel care is good, but the billing is atrocious. I had a minor injury, and all the team did was apply some glue on the injury. The bill came to 3k, and the insurance is paying half of it. I never thought that I would be treated with one of the costliest glue in the world…Jesus, 3K for a dab of skin glue.
