I am the former Chief Financial Officer of El Centro Regional Medical Center. I brought my 1-year old son to the Emergency Room this past Spring for a fever and lethargy. The Emergency Room staff were not only completely unprofessional they appeared to not care about my son's health issues whatsoever.
We waited nearly an entire day and they still had no idea how to treat him.
They were unclean and failed to clean and disinfect the rooms when patients sneezed, vomited and exhibited contagious situations.
Also when I asked staff to help guide my wife and son to my office after they were finished once I identified myself as the facility's CFO, a nurse was heard saying completely unprofessional and disparaging things.
I brought this to the senior leadership the following week hoping my negative experience wound be addressed yet no one seemed to care and I never heard back on what would be done to correct.
In summary if this hospitals behavior toward senior leadership is indicative of how they treat YOU or your loved ones, I would look at Pioneers Memorial or perhaps go to Yuma or even San Diego.
Although this hospital puts on a good "front" that they care about the patients... They don't!
They care more about stealing your money and providing substandard healthcare. The CEO is used car salesman doing nothing more than taking the Imperial County through a healthcare snow job.
They will be out of money by October 2018 unless they are bailed out their affiliation with University of California San Diego.
Did not be fooled. ECRMC is s horrible organization from the top down and you and your loved ones will suffer as a result of you take them there. BEWARE!
