Saving Tristar Skyline Medical Center Patients Money on All Things Healthcare
feedback about Tristar Skyline Medical Center
Been here twice. The first time they literally saved my life. This time they are working on doing the same. I must say the emergency room is exceptional. When I was in the ambulance on the way to Skyline both times the ambulance was communicating with the hospital and the nursing staff and doctors were there to greet me at the door and had medications ready according to what I told the ambulance personnel and my medical records on file with TriStar Hospitals. I love this place if I have to receive medical care
I visited TriStar Skyline for a cut to my hand a couple months ago where I had five sutures administered. I was advised by both the person who administered the sutures and the individual who checked me out (in the presence of my wife) that I could obviously have the sutures removed wherever I chose to, but, if I returned to the Skyline facility, they would remove the sutures free of charge. Though the facility is out of my network, I chose to return to the facility to have the sutures removed, taking them at their word. I have subsequently received a bill for nearly $1,100 and have spent a significant amount of time since receiving this bill, disputing its legitimacy with the facility. If your preference is to do business with companies that bate their customers into spending $1,100 by promising not to charge them, please visit this facility. I am currently paying them for the administration of the sutures and am not opposed to paying for services rendered, just not when advised there will not be a charge for said services.
This facility is filthy... The care in the ER is horrible. The nurses are hanging out at the nursing station chatting, laughing, having a good old time while at least three of their patient family members stand in the hall waiting for a nurse to assist their love ones. I punched the button for a nurse to assist my mom with unhooking her monitors so she could go to the restroom . After waiting thirty minutes and a no show, I walked up to the nurses station and asked for assistance with my mom. I was told by a nurse who appeared to be very annoyed by me asking for help with my mom they would send her nurse in. Fifteen minutes later, still a no show and the nurses assist light is still on. I walked back to the nurses station and was told they would send her nurse in. Mind you, it’s several nurses sitting around chatting, available to assist, but wouldn’t. Finally, I unhooked everything myself (monitors going off like sirens), walked my very drowsy mother to the restroom (nurses watching), and not one single nurse attempted to help me with my mother. As we headed back to the room, I saw the nurse who initially checked on my mom. I asked if I should just hook the monitors back up and was told yes and advised she would be in shortly. Really!!! Sadly, an hour later, she was still a no show. I went back to the nursing station and asked about my mom results and was told their was a shift change at 6:00 a.m. and someone would be in shortly. If you have an emergency, I pray you are near a different facility.
I have going to Skyline Medical since they opened their doors. All of my physicians are there. From the time that I go through the doors, I feel at home there are always smiles from all of the employees.
Admissions for either Out-Patient to In-Patient Services, I have always had the best of service rendered to me. Pleasant, friendly people who care about me.
My physicians are great; Yes there sometimes a delay seeing them but I understand that all patients are different and have different needs and that can cause a delay for me. But, I would want the same treatment given to me if needed that day.
You may think that this post has been written by TriStar Medical. No, I am a 77 year old male that has medical problems just like you. I am just telling the truth about my visits to Skyline Medical. Skyline is not perfect in nature, but I will bet my bottom dollar that they do their very best at being perfect in their care of all sick and injuried persons, that come through their doors.
Truthfully, I am a retired Health Care professional of thirty plus years. I know what it takes to become a great hospital and Skyline was great when they opened their Doors.

My husband had a stroke and has been here at skyline 45 days. We have been on 4 of the 7 floors. We have met and had some of the most amazing individuals taking excellent care of us!! We cant thank them enough! for each and everyone who came into our room with a smile or took a few extra minutes out of a very busy day just to chat with us we thank you! To the ones we passed in the hall who smiled or had an encouraging word we are so grateful. May God bless each and everyone there.
