Saving Evangelical Community Hospital Patients Money on All Things Healthcare
feedback about Evangelical Community Hospital
This is a honest review and not bias to the several dozen one star reviews this hospital has. Sorry but only can give a one star as can't rate it any lower.
Writing on behalf of patient and under circumstances given, whether it was in order or not but never got to see a Dr in the ER only nurse. Knowing the extent of illness and very important medicine should have a full month's worth instead of partial and assume we can get the medicine from another clinic. It seems health was not priority here when they were fully aware that not only it may be difficult getting the medicine which is very important but was in high regard.
Waited 4 hours to be brought back to a room to be seen. Patient severity level was shortness of breathe and a rapid spreading infection. I believe the did not triage the patient correctly resulting in a malpractice law suit.
This is one of three superb hospitals within 30 miles of each other: Susquehanna Medical Center in Williamsport, Geisinger Regional Medical Center in Danville, and Evan. When my wife and I arrived here 50 years ago, there were 5 doctors in town who took turns working the emergence room for a week at the time. There are now 400 doctors in Lewisburg alone, all or most using Evan's facilities.
Evan is a medical campus with adjacent office facilities for most of the 400 doctors. The emergency room has been expanded four times since we've been here. First to expand the one bed in 1965 into sheet separated beds, the last time to increase the number of beds and separate them with walls.
The person who complained about waiting in the emergency room apparently doesn't understand triage. Evan is now expanding to provide single rooms for all its patients. The fourth multi-million dollar expansion in 54 years.
Evan has recently added an urgent care facility off campus but nearby.
Have an emergency? Stay clear from this money seeking giant. They could care less about you. Seeing a doctor is like seeing a unicorn. If you happen to see one of these unicorns, they are worthless or have no beside manner. One doctor performed a procedure on me without me knowing what she was going to do and what it was. Even though I entered the facility with obvious issues and gave them an alarming specimen of my problem. They were insistent on releasing me - especially after blacking out in the lobby and body color going lighter than pale. After a while, they talked to the “committee” of doctors and they stated I should be admitted. But, the care I received there was less than that in the ED. I could go further but its simpler to just say, stay away. They dont care about you, just your money. To them, you’re just a number.
On record, my medical problems were not resolved, I was given no medications, and they could not determine my cause of blood loss or blackout/loss of vision. But, I’m cleared to go home so I can enter another hospital.
Well, I will now be making the trip to Geisinger for all my medical services. I had a procedure done months ago, and promptly set up a payment plan to pay what I owed.
I've literally had to call every single month because I am not sent the monthly statement. Then I'll get a letter stating that if I don't pay, then I will be turned into collections. HOWEVER, every single month I call to let them know that I haven't received the invoice, and every time I'm told that they aren't sure why it doesn't send and that they're updating their systems, blah, blah, blah.
Okay, fine. I understand....the first, second, and even third time this happens. But as of this last month, we're up to SIX months where I've had to call billing and hear the same story of essentially why they can't figure out a simple payment plan/billing issue.
And top that off, insanely long wait times when you do actually need them, I strongly recommend using another hospital.
