Beautiful grounds! Confusing layout inside
Call ahead or use their valet service because it is so confusing to find the clinic you need. This can make you late for appointments, and need to reschedule. I wish they had a map of their hospital online, so the clinics would be easier to find when their phone lines are busy. Maybe they don't post it for safety reasons?
But their grounds are so beautiful! A waterfall, creek, walking path, beautiful flowers and cacti - it's amazing! Fun to walk, even when you don't need to use the hospital. Their grounds are their saving point.
This nonprofit hospital cares about one thing--making a huge profit. If there were another hospital in this community I would certainly NOT go to Dixie Medical Center. Unfortunately, there is no choice. Therefore, Dixie Medical Center is a monopoly. Shouldn't it be regulated? Medicare and Medicaid offer some regulation. The people who have private insurance are taken to the cleaners.
I visited the emergency room at Dixie Medical Center in the first part of October. When I received the bill, I was shocked. Over $4300,00 for a brief visit by the doctor and a ct scan. But I am lucky because I have Medicare. Medicare reduced the bill to $863,00. So why was the original bill so high? Private insurance are willing to pay these ridiculous prices because their expenses become higher and thus they can increase their premiums. The hospital makes a huge profit and so does the insurance company. To get a better idea of the greed and corruption in our medical system, view the YouTube documentary, "Death by Medicine."
My experience was so much better at the ER than it was a few years ago. I have had severe condition for 8 years and it has been a struggle to get help in the past. However, I noticed this time they got it together and were helpful! My heart was beating faster and harder than normal and they got it stable and gave me a helpful diagnosis. A few years ago they just used an IV of codine that did not help with pain. I later found out I needed a nerve pain medication. I am so grateful for the administration and the medical workers this time around for making it a better experience and for the diagnosis they gave me. Thank you! I do still struggle with my health and immune system, but at least I have more answers,and they recommended me to a specialist. I am finally feeling like I am being helped and treated with respect to get over my chronic illness/severe nerve and muscle pain. Thank you! I had a follow up with a call from a nurse and talked with the hospital pharmacist who were both amazingly helpful and a joy to talk to. This was not done a few years ago and it is a nice touch to feel cared about when you are stable but still suffering after an E.R. visit. Please keep it up and well done! I will not hesitate to go back in the future.
My father is in ICU here. I can't sing enough praise for the ICU team! My father is currently unresponsive so we play classic rock for him and talk to him. We came back in on day 2 and his Nurse (Brian) has classic rock playing in the room for my father. Everyday the team of specialists that is working with my father meet with me and my sister and update us on everything. This facility provides top notch services! I can not thank them enough!!!
Best hospital I have ever seen. Great hospitality, friendly sweet people especially nurses.
