My family and myself have been patients at this hospital for years. My all time favorite story at this hospital was how they had to get my mom’s MRI brain scan. It was hilarious because this was the third hospital we’d taken her to to get this scan, she can be very tough to deal with.
So when we finally brought her here we told the doctor that she is extremely claustrophobic and will start yelling in the machine and banging her fists against the walls of the machine. Which was what happened in both hospitals before.
The doctor smiled politely and said, “not to worry” and indeed, that’s what happened. In less than an hour we saw our mother coming out of there with a smile on her face. The nurse came and told us that it finally happened.
That’s when my mom looked at us and said, “this is THE hospital.” We’ve been coming here ever since, it’s been at least 4 years and we have no intention of switching.

Poudre Valley has one of the best teams of medical staff I’ve seen in this state. They are all very attentive to your needs. If you ask them anything they will answer in a sweet tone. Never once did a staff member get agitated with me. I came here to give birth to baby Lulu and they recommended I get a C-section. All went perfectly fine.

They are very smart. Can easily wiggle out of an uncomfortable situation. Even if the mistake’s on them they will find a way to pin it on you. Never going back after the few encounters we have had.

  • Last year in June we came to Poudre Valley because my mother needed an oral surgery. It did not go well. They were rude to her and drilling her hard even though she mentioned she had horrible headaches because of the tooth. They didn’t explain the procedure to her. Just said she needed surgery and started drilling. She was crying in pain the whole time, the poor thing. When she came out she could barely move a muscle on her face and when the local anesthesia was slowly wearing off she told me that the dentist/surgeon was very rude. I went the following weekend and complained to the dentistry department, asking them to compensate for what had happened to my mother. They almost laughed in my face, that’s how much they humiliated me. Not cool.
  • My brother asked me to come with him for a check up at Poudre Valley and despite my experience the last time with my mother I didn’t refuse. He had gone through surgery a few weeks preceding that and needed someone reliable to drive him around. I refused to get out of my car. I waited for 2 hours and my brother wasn’t picking up his phone. When I went inside I noticed they’d convinced him that he needed surgery too. I was so surprised I ran towards his room and asked the doctor how they came to this conclusion. Someone who’d just had surgery. They claimed the surgery had caused some internal bleeding and he didn’t need surgery, he needed immediate attention through operation. WTF?
Needless to say they screwed up too and the internal bleeding that was previously not there is now very present. It’s been months that I’ve been trying to sue them but their lawyers are very experienced. Don’t know that I’m winning this but at least I’m not going down without a fight.

As the baby’s godfather I was in the hospital when she was born. My best friend was exhausted but so happy. I was exhausted too after waiting for 14 hours by her side and comforting her. By the end of it when she was asleep the nurses led me to a room that was empty and quiet and said I could sleep there. She came in 2 minutes later, peeked inside the room, checked if I’d fallen asleep and then put a cushy blanket on top of me. It’s the small gestures that count.

Get this straight: they don’t care about you, they care about your money.
They are so transparent about it too which is the funny part.
Like they will charge you $5000 just for visiting the er and having a 5 minute chat with the doctor shamelessly.
And then they don’t even prescribe medication, just ask you to take ibuprofen.
I literally had to come back 2 days later because the pain had gotten so much worse.
Of course got charged an additional $5000 just for visitation AGAIN and additional charge for the steroid. Will go bankrupt at this rate.

The er is jam packed. So when I had difficulty breathing when I woke up I tried everything before going to the hospital. But they were very fast with me. Didn’t wait, caregivers were great, prognosis was at the speed of light. Impressed by their work ethic and attitude towards patients.
