Newton-Wellesley needs more parking!! Period!!!

A hospital is not good enough if the patients are not able to find a parking lot. I wasted nearly 15 minutes in a garage trying to find a place to park. I finally had to drop my wife at the driveway in the hope that I would join her very soon. I am off to another lot in hopes that I would be able to park my vehicle. Insanity.

If you ask me which the best hospital in Greater Boston is, then Newton-Wellesley Hospital would be my answer. I have had two surgeries here and so has my husband, and every surgery was a success and care topnotch. The doctors and nurses are caring and very attentive to the patient’s needs. The room is modern and very nice and clean.

The surprise is the food. The food provided at Newton-Wellesley Hospital is very fresh and of the best quality. The hospital serves the food room service style, and every order was delivered in less than 30 minutes. The cafeteria food is also good. It is better than any other hospital cafeteria food.

The best ER staff that I have come across - front desk, nurses, and doctor. Every single person was incredibly kind, very attentive, and highly efficient. I am pleased as punch with the way they treated my migraine. I had gone there on a Friday morning, and despite there being a good rush of patients, they took good care of me. Thank you

When I heard that this hospital is going to partner with Mass General, I hoped that it would pull up its quality of care several notches up. But was I wrong? Excellent care lasts only until you are in the ED. Make no mistake, the ED of this hospital is excellent, and I have no complaints about it. The whole picture changes when one gets admitted. The care is in complete contrast to what we get in the ER.

My husband was admitted to Newton Wellesley last year twice for a medical condition that needed continued observation and advanced care. However, the attention which he got was not only disjointed but also very inconsistent. The doctors and nurses did not show any concern for him. The whole thing felt as if one was going through motions. The care is haphazard and very, very, very slow. Sometimes, we thought that we would die before the nurse came to address our concern.

Inpatient care at Newton-Wellesley Hospital is the worst, and if given an option, then I would rather die at home than get treated inpatient at Newton-Wellesley
