Poor cleanliness. This hospital is probably unsafe, and chances of getting hospital-acquired infections are high here. The nurses and housekeeping staff also are not too bothered about cleanliness.

I was admitted to the floor, and my regimen included injections, IV, and other drugs. The nurse who is in charge very coolly brings the medical supplies to my bedside, opens it and leaves the trash behind. My wife counted six to seven used IV caps under the bed, and this was two days after I was admitted. Even worse was the used IV bags left in the sink, which made it unusable for our purposes. The doctor was good, but sadly, that is the only good thing about this hospital. Recommend going to some other hospital if you want proper quality care in a neat hospital.

Both of our children were born here. The staff is amazing. There is hardly anything that would make us hate them. They are exceptional in their service, super friendly, very understanding, and attentive. The birth center is a peaceful oasis which is nestled at the backside amidst lots and lots of trees. One almost feels that they are at a private hospital when they reach the birthing center. Cannot stop singing paeans of this wonderful place.

My wife delivered our munchkin at this hospital in November of last year. If memory serves me right, she was under the care of an exceptionally brilliant doctor called Dr. Anita Tiwari. She and her team were extraordinary. Thanks to their wonderful efforts, my wife’s birthing experience was smoother, calmer, and a lot easier than one could have imagined. Things moved seamlessly, and every single member of the team knew what they were doing. If they are still there, then I would highly recommend them if you are planning to give birth at NW Hospital

This was my first visit to NW Hospital. My doctor had referred me to this place for my surgery. I was initially not too keen about it because it did not “meet my standards.” But since my insurance had this hospital in its coverage, I thought why not, let’s go for it.

This is not your fancy hospital, but looks can be deceiving. This is by far, one of the best hospitals in the region, and I got an excellent response at this place. The biggest point that makes NW the best is the fact that the medical team not only communicate within themselves, but they also interact with the patient and their loved ones. At every step of the surgery, both my wife and I knew what was going to happen. The care which I got even for such a routine surgery was amazing. We have decided to seek medical care at this hospital for our entire family henceforth

Northwest Hospital is not the best out there, simply because the doctors are either tone deaf or dumbos or quacks. I visited the emergency room following a flare-up of hives and told them very clearly that I had meds for hives at home, and these were not working. What does the doctor do—prescribe the same meds at a lower dosage…I was still shaking my head while leaving the hospital. I was not able to decide whether I said something wrong or he heard it wrong. The worst part – he is not ready to listen or even see the prescription for meds. Stay away from this hospital.
