Capital Region Health was where my father was getting treated for his heart condition and it’d been a couple of days before they asked to transfer him to Adventist Healthcare. They claimed he needed to be treated at the earliest to avoid the risk of him having a heart attacks. The ambulance shifted him to Adventist in no time- gotta hand it to them, they really know their routes.

Despite the distance we reached fast and he was brought in to the ER at Adventist. It’d already been decided that he needed to have surgery so they didn’t waste a second. Everything happened efficiently- 2 doctors and a few surgeons took him into the operation theater and then 3 nurses joined soon after. This was pre surgery prep and I noticed they were all very careful but smooth. That’s what experienced surgeons look like..

But throughout the whole process I had only one thought going through my head. What if this goes wrong? I sat outside and was trying to distract myself when one of the doctors came out and explained what was going on and what the surgery would entail. I took the liberty of asking my questions to her and she was very nice about it and answered the questions with no hesitation or judgement. I even cried a little in front of her and she didn’t show any signs of discomfort. Guess she’s used to patients crying.

The nurses were very compassionate as well and even though I was constantly leaving the room to get a breath of fresh air they weren’t judgmental. I understand now how annoying I must’ve been to the other hospital staff, what with all my huffing and puffing and slamming of doors as I walked in and out and my constant pacing. But I tell you, not one person said anything about it. Very sweet and understanding fellows working here.

But the best part was when I saw the doc and the surgeon come outside and I was standing at a distance but they looked at me and smiled. That’s when I knew everything was okay! SO impressed by the work you guys do here, the staff is just amazing and I personally love this hospital. One of my colleague’s wife had a minor heart attack the other day and I suggested they go to Adventist.

Have to get catheterization done? Then Adventist is NOT the place to go- my poor wife has been suffering for months now and I made the mistake of bringing her here. Post the cardiac cath she has been in so much pain and the doctors are still trying to figure out what went wrong. I’ll tell you what-bringing her here!

Professional, amiable, and rather knowledgeable staff at Adventist Healthcare. Something that stunned me was the lack of professional hierarchy. A young doctor was getting a second opinion from the head nurse- the lack of rivalry between the two really amazed me because I’m not one for drama. My coming to Adventist was not premeditated but when they told me I had to get admitted, everything happened quickly. The receptionist, case management staff, doctors, nurses, and every other employee at this hospital was very warm and welcoming to me. The food was the only complaint I had but considering it’s a hospital.. not bad.
Best of luck,
Lucy.

Hospitals make me so nervous I can’t even explain it but luckily I didn’t have much to worry about Washington Adventist is a nice hospital with nice and accommodating staff no doubt about that
But if I have a complain it would be that sometimes they make you wait unnecessarily for really long stretches of time and other times it happens too fast that you don’t even have a minute to take it in
Apart from that it was pretty smooth sailing I had no issues as such and as soon as I got in I was at ease

I used to work at Adventist Healthcare so trust me I know what I’m talking about- this place is all about making money, they kick out patients without insurance (I’ve seen this myself) and treat people with good insurance like kings and queens.

Very annoyed by this hospital. Was pregnant and was seeing my OB at Adventist. All was going well until a week before delivery when I had to change my insurance company for whatever reason and note that right before the delivery no one is in a sound state of mind so after the delivery I noticed that I was getting a lot of hospital bills even though I was receiving help for postpartum and clearly someone going through that has her emotions all over the place.

I am also a single mother and don’t have any other help so it was extremely hard for me. I realized I had to hire a nanny temporarily to get all the bills figured out becaue I didn’t have that kind of money. Apparently the insurance company wasn’t going to cover it either. When I talked to the hospital about this they said it wasn’t their mess to clean up. Umm, okay. How about some compassion for a mother who just went through labor?? Never coming back..
