My family had to go to the ER at this hospital twice.. We had horrible experiences both times. Despite that the hospital is only a couple of minutes from our house, we will not come to ST. Anthony's North again. It's embarrassing and a shame that this hospital cannot get the nursing and doctors staff to get together. It's a beautiful new building and we were excited to have a nice facility so near by.
The first time we took my son to the ER, we were not impressed. We were there for over 8 hours and we ended up walking away without answers. We thought it was just a bad day at in the ER, however the second time we went there with my husband's broken collarbone injury, we were shocked at the level of service and incompetence from the staff.
I would say that it is worth considering a different option if you are considering visiting the ER here. Our family will drive the extra couple of miles to a different hospital, we surely will not come back.
