This hospital ROCKS!!!! I had met with an automobile accident after I fell unconscious on the wheel resulting in me ending up in a ditch and leaving my care totaled. Thanks to Almighty, I was alone in the car.

Long story short, the ambulance brought me to the St. Thomas More and the doctors here did an excellent patching job. Once patched up, they ran tests to determine why I fell unconscious in the first place. The answer left me shocked. I was suffering from a cardiac condition, and I needed a pacemaker if there was any hope of staying alive. These folks transferred my care to Penrose for the pacemaker.

If not for the thoughtful doctors and nurses, I would not have known about the heart condition and may have even died in my sleep. Thank you, fellas. You save my life.

The ER is the best in a 100-mile radius. I had to be rushed here after a severe stomach pain which turned out to be an acute appendicitis attack. The level of care which I received at this hospital was mind-blowing. The check-in was quick and the wait time was very reasonable. The ER doctor also contacted the surgeon, and before I knew, I was being operated upon for appendicitis. The operation was successful and one-day stay later, I am on my way. The best possible care that I could have ever got

I do not know how incompetent people are allowed to provide care to patients. I had to visit this hospital three times because I was misdiagnosed and this was the only hospital which could provide emergency care. I went in with backache, and I was diagnosed with muscle tear when it was just a muscle pull. The second time, I had a high fever and was throwing up, and I was misdiagnosed again.

The last straw was yesterday. I had to rush here after a severe stomach pain. Guess what, I was diagnosed with stomach cramps when it was stone…

I have had enough. I am shifting my care to Penrose.

I was admitted to the hospital for stomach flu and fever, and I was shocked to see how the nurses behaved. They were very busy and never responded to the call button. The nurses also do not have any shame in discussing patient details with each other. They were very rude and did not like being interrupted when they were busy with everything except patient care. I was lucky that my ailment subsided and I was able to get out of this place alive.

Girlfriend had an unexpected medical issue, and we had to rush here. We are from Nebraska and had approached this hospital with hesitation. But the care which Sheena got here was amazing. The hospital provided Sheena the best care. We are delighted with the care that Sheena got here. Thank you all
