My elderly mother suffers from dementia and is an aspiration risk. She was complaining of pain in her left shoulder for long, but we felt she might be referring about a shoulder surgery that she had years ago. But when she continued with it, we decided to take her to the ER. The hospital staff was excellent. They treated her with absolute dignity and respect. The nurses and the doctor had excellent bedside manners. She was requested to undergo an x-ray which revealed that she had popped her shoulder out. The doctor was very careful when she manipulated the shoulder back into place. These guys have earned my ultimate respect. I would recommend visiting this hospital.

St. Mary’s hospital is the best hospital in Waterbury area hands down. I was admitted there with a severe illness whose source was not clear. The doctors at this hospital were able to discover the source of my repeated fevers. They took excellent care of me, and I was reassured that I was in safe hands. After a three-day stay at the hospital, I was out, completely cured. My family and I have been to other hospitals in the Waterbury area, and we did not get proper care. However, at St. Mary’s it is a completely different picture. I believe it is because the doctors are patient enough to hear from you. Secondly, the staff is not overworked. Overworked staff can compromise healthcare. Overall, a good place for getting treated

I was down with severe left-sided chest pain and had no clue which was the best hospital in the area. My colleagues advised me to visit this hospital. I visited the hospital on Friday and was surprised to see the rush of patients in the emergency department. I waited for my turn very patiently, and it came after three hours (too long in my view). I was finally seen and diagnosed accurately. That took care of my anger for waiting too long. However, I did not know this was the tip of the iceberg. I again visited this hospital on Sunday due to recurrent pain. There were hardly two patients in front of me. Despite that, I was made to wait for nearly three hours. Finally, I could not tolerate it any longer and asked how long before my turn. They said pretty soon. I waited for an hour more and then left without getting care. If they do not value my time, then I would take my business elsewhere.

A very special thanks to the entire staff who took very good care of me. I had to undergo physical therapy after recovering from an accident. The physical therapist was excellent, and the team which helped the therapist was also excellent. They were kind yet very firm when it came to treatment. I cannot recall the name of the staff members, but a big thanks to the entire team. You have made my life bearable. Thank you very much

St. Mary’s Hospital is a complete disgrace to the community of hospitals. The hospital stinks. It is not clean. The employees are very rude, and it does not look like they are even qualified to work as nurses or doctors. I was offended by a nurse who told me on my face that there is too much rush and it would be better if I left and sought care elsewhere. That sealed the issue. I walked out and have decided to never set my foot again in St. Mary’s.
