WORST run ER that you can ever go to. I have nothing more to say – it is ridiculous.

I went to the ER after sustaining a fall with subsequent road rash, whiplash, and a fractured ankle. My wife rushes me to the St. Luke’s, hoping that I would be seen soon. Guess what, nobody saw me for nearly three hours, and I was not given any pain meds. The worst part is that since there were limited rooms, they kept on wheeling me in and out in between imaging. Finally, after nine hours, a doctor sees me and orders appropriate treatment. Fast forward to last week. I go there for follow-up imaging armed with doctor’s orders.

What do these bozos do? Take me through the ER. Why? Because that will help them raise nearly $1000 in MCEP bill! I HAD a doctor’s orders with me!!

Please avoid this dump like the plague!!!

I had a wonderful birthing experience here. My child was delivered here. Staff was very caring and attentive. We got a clean room, and the food served was also excellent. My husband and I are super happy with the entire experience.

This review is for an incident that happened a few months back.

I had gone to St Luke's hospital for a blood transfusion. Never faced such stupidity in my entire life. The ER doctor was super busy and might have seen me for 30 seconds. The RN comes and tries to set up the transfusion. The fact that she had no clue as to how to insert a needle was clear when she started poking my hand to find a vein. The phlebotomist was no better. They were finally successful, and the transfusion commenced. There was more drama before the transfusion. A nurse came and told me that there might be some delay because blood for the transfusion has not yet arrived. I was shocked and asked why this was not told earlier. She had no answer to that. Finally, the transfusion started, and thankfully, the whole process went off without any more drama or problems.

A few days later, I hear the news that there was a death at St. Luke’s during blood transfusion after wrong blood type was transfused….Not stepping back again

Not sure about other departments, but outpatient is good. The registration was a breeze. The staff was very attentive. Extremely caring. The pre-op, surgical, and post-op nurses were great. They were highly professional and helped me through the process. Great experience.

My son was admitted to the St. Luke’s ICU for some time. He was treated well there. The nurses were compassionate, sweet, and thorough. They explained the disease in detail and made sure we understood everything. The doctors were excellent. They were compassionate and to the point. There was no BS. They treated us with empathy. Sadly, this hospital does not deserve a lot of negative attention that it gets. I have no hesitation in returning or recommending this hospital to everybody

Highly pleased with the wonderful experience that I got at St. Luke’s. I had gone there after a kitchen accident where a slip resulted in a heavy wok falling on my leg and some scrapes and a cut on the forehead while trying to recover for the slip. This happened at 8:00 PM, and my husband rushed me to the ER. I was seen very quickly. The PA was beside me in a matter of seconds. The wounds were dressed, and an x-ray was ordered. It showed nothing serious, just a contusion of the ankle bone. The whole visit might have lasted for four hours, which included registration, evaluation, and imaging, waiting for the results, and filling the script at the pharmacy. Would return
