Absolutely hideous Hospital. If you want genuine care from real doctors, then better head off to Florence. Do not come here. You will get nothing but incompetence. My insurance takes this hospital, so I have to bear with the doctors and nurses here. I have been visiting this shithole for some time now, and I am yet to come across people whom I can call competent. I have no clue how this hospital is even allowed to operate.

A veterinary hospital would be cleaner and offer better care than this dump. They cannot get simple things correct. I went in with rigors and high fever. The doctors and nurses, for some reason, were intent on declaring me a drug addict. They took an x-ray, did urine and blood tests, and were pissed off when I came clean. The only test and scans they did not do was a strep test and scans for pain in the stomach.

When they realized that things were not going their way, they discharged me without any meds. I ended up visiting Walker Baptist located in Jasper, where tests confirmed I had aggressive pneumonia and needed immediate attention.

I strongly recommend using any hospital except this dump.

This is a very small hospital. They are understaffed most of the times, but that does not take away excellent care that the doctors and nurses offer. They are very hardworking and do not hesitate to do that little extra if it does help in improving your health. I was admitted to the ICU for some days, and the nurses were genuinely concerned about me. They were attentive to my needs and ensured that I was fully recovered by the time I was out of this hospital.

Russellville Hospital is a small town hospital staffed by some of the most amazing doctors and nurses that I have come across. The quality of care is good, and the standards are close to some of the big hospitals that dot the country.

Doctors at Russellville Hospital do care for their patients. It is a small hospital, and any comparison to big hospitals is unfair. With the limited resources that they have, they are doing an exceptional job. I am thrilled with the wonderful care I received here, and I do not think I would be going anywhere else for any of my medical needs
