This was my first visit to Union Hospital, and it was a trip worth remembering. I went a Thursday evening, and there was hardly anybody in the hospital. The staff was very relaxed and took me in and then back to the doctor in double quick time. The doctor came and talked with me, cracked a few jokes all the while trying to diagnose my problem. Finally, after talking for nearly 15 minutes, she ordered a blood test, which turned out to be normal. She was very friendly and had excellent bedside manners. She also answered all my questions. After about 45 minutes, I was walking out of the hospital, a completely satisfied person

Visit to the Union Hospital Emergency Room was a pleasant experience. We had visited the ER on Wednesday morning after my wife complained that she was not able to feel our baby. Despite it being full, there was a good flow of patients, and we were seen in a pretty reasonable time. The RN was very friendly and reassured my wife that everything was alright. The doctor came and ordered a scan which showed the baby was fine. The doctor also gave us tips on being good parents and how to care for an unborn child. Mind you, he was not an OBGYN doctor. We were relaxed after we heard everything was okay. Thanks to the wonderful ER staff for taking good care of us

I had taken my wife to this ER after we ended up in an accident and she was badly injured. She was taken in quickly, but then made to wait for nearly two hours. It might not have been an issue if there was a rush or if she was okay. There was no rush, and she was dripping blood from multiple lacerations on her face and few deep cuts on her hand. A few nurses walked by, but nobody gave any attention to us. The doctor finally saw us. She cleaned the wounds and then put butterfly bandages. I am no doctor, but the wounds that my wife had were deep enough to warrant stitches. I had to take her elsewhere where she received good care and yes, stitches for her wounds.
