This hospital had a good reputation when it was owned by the city. Quality of care has been in steady decline since it was privatized in the 80's.
It is now common knowledge amongst many, if not most, of the locals in the surrounding area, that this is a "last resort" for healthcare, especially the E.R., which has attained legendary notoriety.
Kalamazoo offers better choices for quality healthcare.
This hospital should only be a first aid clinic. Don't go there if your elderly. Once brought my grandfather in with possible stroke. The told us to go to the waiting room. No sense of urgency was given to my grandfather whatsoever. So we left call 911 and had then go to Bronson hospital in Kalamazoo. There should be an option for no stars at all.
I had a very good experience with this hospital when I was stuck up there for three days. There was a very caring staff and I had a very good doctor. They treated me the way I wanted to be treated, gave me directions regarding my condition while I was staying there and I followed their advise which helped me get better and out of the hospital sooner. If I had to go to the hospital again, I would hope it would be with them because they treated me so well
I will never go back to sturgis hospital ER again unless I'm physically forced too. The last time I was there all I wanted was a cat scan and the Dr was very rude and not just to me but to all the patience that were in thier. The house supervisor had to come down it was that bad. I will die at home before I will go back to that ER again. That DR has no business being a doctor he needs to lose his license and hopefully he got in trouble that day and will be dismissed from that hospital. He had me in tears.

If you can go somewhere else, go there. I wouldn't recommend this hospital.
