We could not be happier than this. Dr. Jessica Clark performed my wife’s surgery at the Wellington Regional Medical Center. My wife is not your “ideal patient” as she has allergies which can turn serious at the drop of a hat, she is afraid of needles, and there are few meds which she cannot stay away from at all. The medical staff went through everything and double-checked things. They also contacted her doctor and also included her inputs. The staff explained to us in great detail what they intended to do and how it could alleviate her life. My wife was nervous on the day of surgery, but the staff handled that issue also very well. After surgery, she was shifted to a room, and the nurses and other support services made sure that her needs were attended to without delay. Thank you all for the wonderful care provided to my wife. All of you would always be in our prayers

Stay away for this dump. There is absolutely no care here. I was in for surgery. They asked me to take all the precautions that were supposed to be taken before surgery. An hour before surgery, the surgeon comes and says that he could not do the surgery and that I should see another surgeon. The GI comes in after that and says I have a bacterial infection and wanted to conduct some test. The test comes back negative, and five minutes later, the attending comes and says I am free to go…

I was like, what the FK are you saying. I have been on a liquid diet for pretty much 24 hours, and I cannot keep solid food down, and yet I am being discharged. The attending had only one word for it…Yes. These bozos did not listen to me and discharged me. Two days later, I was in another hospital ICU.

Please do not seek care here!!!!!

Underwent an outpatient surgery at WRMC. Was treated exceptionally well. The quality of care was super. The nurses and the surgeon were great. They explained everything in detail and also various pros and cons. The only blip in the entire wonderful experience was the absence of the valet parking attendant. I wanted to use the services, and he was not in his place. I told the staff about it, and they also had no clue about where he was. I think WRMC should not employ people who are least bothered about doing their duty

Wellington Regional Medical Center sucks big time. The staff has the worst bedside manner one could ever come across. The nurses and the doctors do not have compassion for their patients. These people do not know how to even speak with patients. They speak very rudely and talk down their patients. For them, all those who come with pain are drug addicts. Even on the floor, the situation is the same. Simple basic things for them is a big burden for them, and they roll their eyes when one asks for something. Pathetic!!!!

WRMC is running a big scam. They are ready to charge you for the services they do not provide. My wife wanted a particular test, which was ordered by her GP. Jessie inquired with these guys first, and they said they do the test. Jessie sets up a schedule and goes the hospital on the appointment date. The nurse comes and takes the vitals and then goes. After that, she is kept waiting for nearly two hours after which a nurse comes and says that WRMC does no conduct the particular test that she wanted, and they are sorry for that. The real twist comes when the bill comes. The b*****ds charged her over $500 for services rendered. The service which she got was her vitals being checked.

Stay away from WRMC. They only care about your money and not you.

Excellent hospital. I delivered my second child here. The wonderful team of doctors, nurses, as well as other staff members, ensured that my birthing experience was something which I would remember for a long time. Especially grateful to my nurse Kim in the L&D department. She's an angel!! The doctor was also on-call. I would definitely recommend this hospital to all the mothers-to-be

Superb…Fantastic….Awesome...

I am running out of superlatives to explain the care that I got here. I had come to the ER in severe pain and doubling over. The staff took me in very quickly and after a five-minute wait was taken back to the room. The doctor was beside me in seconds. He ordered a test and then suggested emergency surgery. The staff made all the arrangements in a jiffy, and then I was being wheeled into surgery in less than an hour. The surgery is conducted successfully, and I am shifted to the room where I stay for five days. During the time spent in the hospital, the medical staff and the service staff took excellent care of me. A great hospital stay.
