Holy cow!

This is incredible. St. Barnabas is an amazing hospital. The hospital is manned by some of the most caring and very attentive nurses and doctors. But what makes St. Barnabas outstanding is the Cooperman Family Pavilion. It is unreal. The waiting area on the 1st floor gives you a feeling of being in an ultra-luxurious cocktail lounge. It even has a grand piano! The pavilion has very clean restrooms. You also have charging boxes and outlets. A bonus – you have Starbucks just below. With these facilities, what can be a very anxious and stressful wait for your loved one could turn out to be a fun-filled and relaxed wait!

Thank you, Mr. Cooperman. You sure have made our wait worthwhile

Labor & Delivery staff at St. Barnabas is outstanding. They are professional, caring, and highly knowledgeable. Thanks to these wonderful people, my delivery experience was great. One of the nurses also came in very early to check on my child and me. The only problem with this hospital is that the room which we get is dependent on the number of deliveries that happens in the hospital. If the deliveries are more, then it becomes a little bit difficult to get a room. However, when we get a room, it is very large, clean, and nice. My husband and I are very happy with the experience that we have got at this place. Highly recommended for all those moms who are about to give birth and looking for a hospital that would give them a pleasant delivery experience!

I do not care about what others say, but for me, St. Barnabas is the best hospital in the entire Essex County. The staff is wonderful, caring, highly professional, and very knowledgeable. The staff treats every patient equally and always makes an effort to make a patient feel welcome and comfortable no matter the size of the injury. For them, the patient is a priority and not their money. These guys even give a call after some days to see how you are doing

Horrible, horrible experience!!!

My wife delivered at St. Barnabas back in December. There are not enough words or phrases in the English language to describe how awful our experience was. The staff, by and large, is good, but some nurses are very horrible. Lack of quality care resulted in my child end up spending nearly a week in NICU. Thanks to the stupid staff, I am now paying ridiculous amounts as charges towards NICU; completely avoidable charges. I tried contacting the supervisor, the head nurse, even sent a mail to the head of the hospital, but did not get any proper response from them.

Avoid St. Barnabas like the plague!

My father had a sudden onset of severe pain in his back, a score of 10/10. We called the ER and were asked to come in ASAP. We reached the hospital, and my dad was taken in almost immediately, and then the wait started. He was asked to sit in a very uncomfortable chair despite the staff knowing that he has back pain. The wait extended to nearly three hours. Finally, my patience ran out, and I took him to a nearby hospital where he was attended to very quickly.
