There are fewer and fewer choices of hospital in Brooklyn due to closure or consolidation. Having tried all of them for various reasons, I can honestly say Maimonides is the best. They have a great attention to detail and a whole host of really good doctors associated with the hospital who are on call to come and consult about your condition. It is one of the best hospitals in the whole of the US as well for the treatment of heart conditions, which is what I have. Their cardiac ICU is amazing. The only downside is the emergency room is usually full to overflowing, and getting a bed / room if you have to be admitted can be a really long wait. But with such a large catchment area with so many elderly people to care for, this is understandable. I have never had cause to complain about any of their bills or report them to the insurance company for inappropriate charges. Everyone is very professional and takes pride in their work. Weekends can be a bit weird because it is an Orthodox hospital, so if you go in on a Friday, don't expect anything to get done until Monday afternoon at the earliest. But a hospital is a place to rest and be cared for, so while it is not as nice as being in your own home, be a patient patient and do what has to be done to get better. All of my family use this hospital as well, it is so much better than Lutheran or Methodist, so if you have a choice, look for Maimonides doctors and get any procedures done at the hospital.
