This is a review for a visit that I had in 2016. I have not visited the hospital after that as there was no need for it. In July 2016, I got my wife admitted here for delivery. The whole labor and delivery process was handled very professionally. The doctors and the nurses were exceptional, and they took excellent care of Pattie. All of our questions were answered with a smile.

Even after the birth of our princess, they took excellent care of both the mother and child. Pattie had to stay for three days due to a minor complication, which was handled very professionally. Everyone was patient, attentive, careful, and caring! If we plan to have another child, we know where to go for delivery. Thanks, Moses Taylor, for everything

I had just moved from Washington and had not set up my primary care. I visited Moses Taylor ER one evening after an unbearable pain in my lower back. The ER doctor and nurses were outstanding. They did not waste time doing unnecessary tests. The doctor ordered a scan, and even before the result was relayed, he told me that I might have kidney stones. The results showed the same. Appropriate treatment ensued, and I was back in my home after four hours.

Very happy with the way I was treated…

My daughter and her boyfriend had a terrible accident, and they were taken to this wretched ER by the ambulance. My daughter had shards of glass on her face and hands, and these idiots did not clean it at all. Her boyfriend broke his right hand and leg and required surgery. The surgery was completed, but they did not provide proper care instructions while discharging them. He even had to get crutches prescribed by other doctors. These idiots just forgot to prescribe it.

Complete incompetence…Better to visit another hospital than risking your life at this wretched dump!!!!

This is my regular hospital, and all my imaging and other tests are performed here. The staff is efficient, friendly, and helpful. The ER is also good, had been there once or twice, and received the best possible care I could get at that time. All in all, an excellent hospital to have in our vicinity. I would not hesitate to return nor hesitate in recommending this hospital to everyone
