I gave birth here by the recommendation of my ob versus going to the other hospital, as she thought this staff is more professional and better. The whole experience was AMAZING. The maturity ward is much nicer than what the video shows on their website, the rooms have all been updated and there is a nice spacious couch turned bed for your support person to sleep with plenty of storage and a beautiful HUGE window. The staff was so amazing I am so thankful for everything they did for me. They were wonderful people, truly wish I would've brought goodie bag to gift them with as I love them so much.
The hospital is a great place to go on a date! I especially enjoy the decor in the Hospice Ward!
I am shocked how these people could call themselves doctors.
The ER "doctors" do not understand the very basics -- they sent my wife home twice when she was experiencing excruciating pain in 2016. They refused to do an MRI on her saying it has radiations and would hurt the baby (she was 4 month pregnant). Are you kidding me? CT has radiation, but MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Image and it's the BEST alternative to CT because it's just a huge magnet -- perfect for pregnant women. My wife's OBG was out of the office for 3 days and they refuse to do anything until she's back. She came back shocked at the fact that they'd refuse to do an MRI on my wife and said that if we had went to Peoria, one would have been done on the first day. They gave her morphine for 3 straight days for her pain and that supposedly doesn't hurt the baby!? Turned out she had a severe pneumonia infection seen on the MRI. Had it been delayed further, the disease could have progressed further and both my wife and the baby could be in danger.
Then in 2017, I went in again after slipping and fell. They put skin glue on me and I was in and out in no more than 1 hour. They sent a $4000 bill to my insurance company, resulting in a $1500 bill for me. Seriously? They should just go rob a bank. To compare the costs, my wife had an emergency in New York City and had to stay in the hospital overnight and the bill was only $900! Seriously, is OSF kidding? Comparing the cost of living of NYC to here in Bloomington IL, you would expect the bill from NYC to be much bigger right? Despite being a "in network" hospital for my insurance, they certainly charge "out of network" rates and that's absolutely evil. They call themselves a catholic hospital but there's nothing catholic about them -- they don't care about you or anyone else!
I went in around 1230am. I was diagnosed with postpartum psychosis & manic bipolar 6months ago, it went away 3wks ago & came back 5 days ago pretty bad. I went into the ER told them exactly what’s happening & that I’ve been having constantly visions of hanging myself & I knew exactly how I will do it. The doctor told me to “drink some chamomile tea to relax.” Nurse came in to discharge me & left to get my papers. She never came back so I left without any one seeing me or saying anything to me
Emergency was busy but they need to check on you once in a while and let you know. My father in law was in there for 9 hr after he fell at his house. He was only seen twice and when he need cleaned up after a he wet himself no one would come to help. After we talked to a supervisor they did something.
He was the admitted to a room on 3 rd
floor. Sometime during the night
they moved him to intensive car and didn't let his wife know
