Longmont United Hospital does not care for its patients. There is an absolute breakdown of communication between doctors. This place is a classic case of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing. I was in this hospital for three days, and those were the worst days of my life. One doctor felt that I needed to stay for some more days, while another doctor thought that I was just taking up space and I do not have any issue and I can be discharged. My discharge got delayed by 24 hours as the fight between these two doctors intensified, and each refused to sign the discharge papers. I, finally, left AMA.

STAY AWAY from this hospital!!!

Not sure about others, but I have had a great hospital experience here. The nurses are the best part of this hospital. The doctors are good but have got stiff upper lip. I had a two-day stay here. I was pleased with the way these people treated me. I was not worried because I felt I was in safe hands. Everyone whom I interacted with was caring and very friendly. There was no rushing through things, and everything was explained in great detail.

Thanks, everyone for the efforts you put in to ensure I recovered well!!!

One can review this hospital into two parts. Pre-Centura and Post-Centura. Pre-Centura, this hospital was outstanding.

However, post the takeover, hospital care has deteriorated. The hospital has become money -centered operation. Healthcare is no longer a priority.

Making more money by fleecing the patients is the new motto of this hospital. They also lie with a straight poker face. They will quote ridiculously low prices before the service, and once the service is done away with, the billing amount increases outrageously. It is really disgusting, taking advantage of vulnerable people. This hospital is a bolt for the healthcare industry.

I have been getting treated at this hospital for the past six years, and so far I have not faced any situation which might have forced me to think of shifting my care to some other hospital. My treatment team has been great. They genuinely care for my well-being. The rooms are spotless and so is the entire hospital. I would continue seeking care at Longmont United Hospital

The nurses at Birthplace are incredible. They are out of this world. My wife delivered our princess here, and both the mother and our baby were provided outstanding care by the nurses! Very pleased

I gave birth to my child at Birthplace this past month. The nurses were great and took great care of my son. He had some complications and had to be in NICU for a few days. The NICU nurses were exceptional and kept us updated on everything. Junior was discharged from NICU after a few days. The doctors were also outstanding. They made it a point to come and check on the baby and me regularly.

Long story short, the best place to give birth. Highly recommended

Worst hospital around. I had to visit this hospital for complications related to diabetes, and I was not given proper care. The ER staff was worthless and did not offer appropriate care. I was shifted to the ICU where I received somewhat better care.

All the troubles started when I was shifted to the floor. The nurses completely ignored me. Or should I say forgot me? The housekeeping was also pathetic. They did not deem it necessary to clean my room and remove my dinner plate until the next day morning. The nurses were so careless that I went hungry for nearly 15 hours. When they finally realized I was there, they started acting too concerned.

I had enough of this negligence and asked the nurse to initiate the discharge process as I was not satisfied with the care. A doctor came and started sermonizing me about taking good care my health etc. I shut him up with one question. “Then why was I kept hungry for 15 hours even when you knew I was a diabetic.”

He signed the discharge papers quickly. I won’t be back here in my lifetime!!!
