I do not know whether I should laugh or cry while doing this review. I will leave it to the readers.

Last Monday, my son fell from his bike and hurt himself badly. My wife took him to the nearest ER, and that turned out to be Salem Hospital. She called me up while I was at work, and I decided to leave everything and rush back. She called me at 12:45 pm and said that she had been taken in and they were waiting for the doctor. I felt happy and thought the hospital is great and very efficient. I drive into the Salem Hospital parking at 3:30 pm and call my wife hoping to pick them up. She says there is a rush and she has not yet been seen by the doctor. I thought it was okay.
I go to the reception and ask for the waiting room where my family was. The receptionist gives me a blank look. She just could not recollect which room my family was in.

Thank God I am a calm person lest would have been facing a trial for homicide. I finally called my wife and asked her to come to the main reception so that I could meet them and go to the room.

Absolute joke of an ER.

I went to the Salem Hospital ER with my girlfriend after she crashed her dirt bike and hurt herself very badly. Have to say this was the best ER experience. The doctor and nurses were friendly, and we spent only two hours in the ER and this including the waiting period, imaging, getting medications and driving out of the hospital parking. We were mentally prepared to wait for hours, but this was a pleasant surprise. Thanks to the wonderful care, my girlfriend is recovering very fast. I will not hesitate to revisit this hospital if the need arises. Highly Recommend Salem Hospital.

This review is for an incident that happened in January 2019.

We had moved to this place from Texas hardly a week ago when I fell sick. Being new to the place, I was directed to Salem Hospital. I went there, but the treatment was not up to the mark. The medical staff had absolutely no idea about what was ailing me and did not have a clue on how to treat me. I decided to seek better treatment elsewhere and thank God I did. Went to another hospital where they not only treated me well but thanks to their care, the illness has never recurred.

Salem Hospital should employ knowledgeable doctors and not quacks who just come to warm the chair and collect their checks. Absolutely worst experience

Quite a dated review but had visited Salem Hospital a few days back and old memories got rekindled.

My mother had suffered a heart attack, and we took her to Stayton first, where they advised us to take her to Salem. The best advice ever. She was treated by a wonderful doctor called Dr. Fanous, (could not catch her first name). She did an amazing job! She was very calm and talked very lovingly with my mother. One could see that my mother’s stress was melting away. Dr. Fanous was able to get from her what had happened and how she planned to treat her. Her ability to communicate was amazing. Dr. Fanous was compassionate, smart, and humble. She helped in providing continuity of care after my mother underwent surgery for a triple bypass. I would never forget that incident. Dr. Fanous wherever you are, thanks!! Ultimate respect

I have heard horror stories about Salem Hospital ER and was even warned against going there. So imagine my plight when I was rushed to Salem Hospital ER after ending up in a ten-car pileup. I am glad that it was nothing like what I had heard. The hospital staff was very courteous, warm, friendly and highly professional. Everybody, right from the nurse who checked me in, to the technician who imaged me to the doctor who signed the discharge papers, everybody was great. Everyone treated me with respect. The nurses showed compassion. They kept me informed, and doctors were willing to listen to me. Thumbs up for the excellent care.
