feedback about Summit Pacific Medical Center-Swing Bed Unit
I love this medical center! I love that it is more than a hospital and has brought critical primary care services to the community, including naturopathic physicians, pediatrics, and urgent care. I love that there will be a wellness center in 2019 that will have more healthcare providers, as well as space for community cooking lessons, more physical therapy space, as well as ways to engage the whole family in wellness. There will be a climbing wall, a playground, an outdoor adult fitness area, as well as a fitness trail. I love their focus on helping make the community healthier while still providing essential health care services.
So this review is not about the doctor because we adore Dr Hutton. This is about being told to reschedule twice.the first appt we were on time for and they failed to tell us they scheduled us with the mccleary clinic. So we got ready to go there and they told us to call in the am and reschedule with Hutton. We called and they scheduled us for that afternoon. I ended up with a flat tire and so I called to make sure they could still see us. She said yes and gave me the address...THE WRONG ADDRESS!! So I end up at a business at the wrong address and they were able to give me the correct address. I get there, tell them what happened, please get us in he's been running a fever for a week...sorry irs over 5 minutes, you'll have to reschedule! Are you kidding me. I'm willing to wait, just get him seen. Oh so sorry, the nurse said you'll have to reschedule. If I didn't like Hutton so much I would have told them exactly what I thought. I know I was 8 minutes late, but take the circumstances, the sick baby, and use a brain, not a rule. Rules are made to be broken with exceptions.
The best E.R. & Urgent Care & Primary Care and Physical Therapy
Critical access hospitals like Summitt Pacific are like Urgent Care Clinics on steroids and not your typical local community hospital that provides emergency general surgeries, orthopedic or pediatric physician staffed services, including hospitalists. The Emergency Room patient is triaged and placed in either an ambulance for ground or air transport which delays the surgery, extends the patient’s discomfort or risk for greater harm, separates the family from their loved ones, and adds tremendous costs to the patient for the transport. This is what distinguishes them from fully staffed acute care hospitals with experienced inpatient care. Critical access hospitals provide a tremendous benefit to rural communities but not the full acute care inpatient hospital services.
Let’s be honest, our government dollars on healthcare are out of control. Expanding the outpatient clinics and services at a critical access hospital that pulls federal, state, and local healthcare dollars away from the local community hospitals just up the road is wasteful.
Community support of the Grays Harbor Health Care System is vital to all residents for sustainability and growth. Let’s learn to create a healthier, more collaborative, and engaged community by working together and not against each other. Grays Harbor County residents deserve better from our county, city, and hospital district leaders. We’re in this together!
My mother was a patient here several times and always had good compassionate care. Thank You!
