Excela Health Westmoreland Regional Hospital: "I am on this site trying to find an alternative to Excela Westmoreland. I am in need of a hospital in the near future and refuse to go to the closest monopoly of Excela due to their long wait time, inefficiency, poor patient care and no continuity of care. \r\nI was forced to wait in a hallway, triaged there-forget HIAPPA- charged for a narcotic that was not given, and released without a ride home. \r\nNot the best care for for two herniated disks, one that they overlooked.

Lansdale Hospital: "On Wednesday October 28th, 2015 I rushed myself to the emergency room in full blown asthmatic discomfort. I was greeted by patient services; not the friendliest. Later the triage nurse who then escorted me to the emergency room where the staff was impeccable. Albeit however, Dr. Penner was probably the amazingly, caring and compassionate and knowledgeable doctor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.\r\n\r\n Awesome bedside manners, medication knowledge, and well informed in medicine. Dr. Penner is truly an asset! I truly appreciated your time and wisdom. I felt safe and well informed and reassured upon my discharge. This type of service goes along way!\r\n\r\nThank you Gary Penner for your kindness, but mostly the time you gave.\r\n\r\n\r\nMs. DeGraffenreidt\r\nLansdale" - Ruth

Milton S Hershey Medical Center: "Worst experience ever! Daughter is 3 months old, was scheduled for liver biopsy at 8am. After them sending us to wrong place in hospital 5 times we were finally in right place come 10am..there was a nurse that flirted w my fiance right in front of my face. Then after her biopsy they discharged us. Were 2hrs from the hospital needless to say. We got home and guess what 2 voice mails and a cop at our house later saying we were never to be discharged!!! Back to Hershey hospital we went. Unfortunately our daughter needed her IV back in so they took,not joking 8times till they finally got her IV in correct! One nurse suggested an ic in her head, what makes them think if they cant do it in her arms, legs and feet id dare let them stick IV in her head! They left her room a mess with everything they used as far as trash and were laughing while poking our daughter and missing.then we were told 3-5days for biopsy results, 6days later still no results yet it even looked at" - Charity
