Do not know what to do? Are you bored to death? Then I have a solution for you. Visit St. Joe in Bellingham. You can waste hours and hours waiting for non-existent care. I had the misfortune of visiting this dump for an infected toe. On the last count, I have been waiting for nearly eight hours just to see a specialist who was supposed to come seven hours back. Every time I ask the nurse for an update, I get a completely different answer. I should have got my picnic basket to while away time.

Absolutely ridiculous!!!! If you do not have the people, then shut it down. Why are you hellbent on wasting others time? My time and money are also important for me…would wait for 15 minutes more and then push off.

St. Joseph in Bellingham took very good care of me. The place was very welcoming. The nurses, aides, doctors, support staff, as well as the guards, were excellent. Their attitude showed that they genuinely cared for their patients. They were gracious enough to smile and greet me whenever I met them. The ER team is out of this world. My other doctors are also here, and all of them are also wonderful. See no reason to seek care at any other hospital

A very positive hospital experience. I rushed to this place with my sister after she suffered a stroke. The ER team was quick to attend to her, and before long, she was being cared for by multiple people. My sister stayed here for a week, and we are very pleased with the service we got here. Every person we interacted during the stay here were friendly, supportive, very professional, and walked that extra mile to ensure that my sister did not face any trouble while getting care here. Everybody was outstanding. Thank you
