Quality hospital care is an all too often, at the moment experience. Thankfully, my two stays here, I found exceptional care and a host of dedicated healthcare professionals. Both visits began via the Emergency Department. The area is sleek, clean, and immediate attention was provided. Tests were ordered and executed speedily, and bed transfer to the floor was not prolonged. Once admitted, excellent care was provided, and treatment was exceptional. Due to the brilliant efforts of the doctors, I was treated and by condition improved steadily. During my stay, I was visited by volunteers from the Hospital Foundation, Nutritionist, and Physical Therapist, among others. After a week, I was on my way home with greater insight into a diagnosed chronic illness and how to manage it. Regretfully, I failed to grasp how ill one can get quickly, and the Southampton Volunteer Ambulance transported me from town after I collapsed walking to my car. My second visit was just like the first — prompt attention and treatment and luckily, speedy discharge this time. While many think getting quality care only happens west of the Hamptons, I can attest, I received excellent care, treatment, and diagnosis and believe Southampton Hospital delivers exceptional healthcare consistently.
I look forward to one day being a volunteer here and not a patient.
