feedback about Alexian Brothers Medical Center 1
I had the worst experience at this hospital. Everything went wrong. I delivered a baby here in January of 2019. Anesthesia was terrible, physician was terrible, nursing staff was terrible. (except Susie on the mother and baby recovery unit), management was terrible when I told them about the issues I had experienced. Food was good. Terrible medical care. If you have the choice, if your hospital visit can be prepared and planned please consider my experience while determining which facility to deliver your baby at. Specific details include being told I had a miscarriage incorrectly! Then being told that was not true, I am still pregnant, the baby does have a heart beat, "it was a lab error", not getting a spinal when I asked for one, not having my pain managed after the c section, and inappropriate comments from nurses about my birthing preferences.
Only come here if you are dying and have no choice. Then expect an ER services bill, an ER doctor bill, radiology bill, then a bill from a company that "analyzes" the radiology services. Maybe more depending on your level of need. Seriously, the place is a joke, they attempt to deceive the public and appear to be a religious place, but they find many ways to bill you into debt that makes you question their practices as the Bible warns against oppressing the poor. And you cant simply ask how much something will be. No. You go in and walk out not knowing what tsunami is heading toward your mailbox full of bills. Oh and this is after insurance.
This is strictly a community based medical center you should come for minor readily solved issues , major more complex issues you should go to Advocate Lutheran General which is a Level 1 trauma tertiary hospital with medical school affiliations.The ER is a magnet for individuals with psychiatric issues as the behavorial hospital is quarter block to the east. As for billing issues file a medical Chapter 13 bankruptsy which pays the bills and sometimes actually boosts your credit scores
I haven't gotten to the room yet, but the cafeteria is filthy at 3 p.m., as are lobbies and halls. I fully expect to get the automated "please contact us" response that everyone else has gotten. EDIT: 7 months later, still no response.
They took very good care of me i haven't felt this good in a long time..Thanks for everything.Oh and I miss the cute nurses.
