If even a modicum of respect or care was shown towards the patients I would’ve considered staying here, but no, that was hardly the case. Just another classic example of a hospital that is waiting to drain your wallet to the last penny. Disgusting place. My sister got a knee cap replacement here 5 months ago and even though it felt alright at the time, she started complaining about it hurting days after. When we went back to the hospital to find out what the surgeon had to say about it, he said sometimes it took some time to settle in and it’ll take some getting used to.

We took his word for it and my poor sister found it difficult to walk (especially climb stairs). She couldn’t take it after a few more weeks so we then went to Mercy hospital, just to get a second opinion. Turns out they’d not fixed it currently into the socket or something- basically they’d screwed up. And the worst part? The doctor deduced that from a simple X-ray. So you’re telling me that a hospital 1. Messed up your surgery and then 2. Didn’t have the decency to check on it, see if it was in the right place then 3. Pretended like it was just a natural process to feel like it was misplaced and 4. Didn’t even bother calling and checking up later on to see if in fact the patient felt uncomfortable again. Shocked to my very core. I couldn’t believe it.

Thankfully the doctors at Mercy Hospital are very efficient, they didn’t waste any time and asked my sister to get it corrected. After that she felt 10x better and said this was how she was supposed to feel after the surgery at Wheeling but that was not the case. We went back after this , back to Wheeling and launched an official complaint about the surgeon who ruined two months of my sister’s life. He doesn’t deserve to be performing surgery on other human beings. My sister suffered enough, I don’t want anyone else having to suffer because of him. Waiting to see what the board decides.

One of my fav hospitals even though I’ve always been faithful to CAMC memorial the minute I switched to Wheeling I knew it was for the better. Back at CAMC I was wrongly diagnosed and had that corrected at Wheeling. If they didn’t catch it in the nick of time God knows where I would be today. Spent a few days recovering at this hospital and had a nice time. Very peaceful hospital not too noisy and you get private, spacious rooms. Enough space for family to visit and the hours are lenient. Perfect.

Glad Wheeling decided to take my husband as a patient- he has a rare form of blood cancer (not leukemia) and we’d been trying multiple hospitals to see where we could get in. Wheeling was actually our 3rd preference (based on the list given to us by our family physician).

Were nervous how they were going to go about treating my husband but I was very pleased. Even though there were some minor issues I had with two of the night shift nurses everything else was just dandy.

From day one they were very comfortable with us, the cancer specialists were very affectionate and they started acting like family. Within a week they knew all about our family and had met most of our family members.

It truly did start feeling like family get togethers after that when all of us would gather at the hospital. One of the best places to take your loved ones because you’re guaranteed they are in safe hands. Love Wheeling.

If you want a good hospital with decent quality health care I would suggest driving out of Wheeling- Pittsburgh has a lot of good options. Trust me I made the mistake of choosing proximity over quality and am now suffering. Ended up having to go back and forth from the hospital to my home for weeks on end because Wheeling hospital screwed my hip so bad and refused to take any responsibility for it. Not even worth fighting over, just leaving.

From what I’ve seen so far (and from personal experience ) I think it’s safe to say don’t get hip/knee/shoulder replacements done here. I had a shoulder replacement last month and it had to be fixed up later. What’s the point?

A decently run hospital in the state, not too terrible but there’s definitely room for improvement. The pediatrics department is a bit of a joke, though. The ER is not half bad but needs to be run with much more precision. The triage system needs to be monitored and hopefully improved upon. Don’t know about any other departments yet and don’t think I’ll be going back. With the way they treated my daughter who is 6, I am debating to complain to the board of directors of Wheeling. Let’s see
