Hosptials reflect the community. It's a shame that this hospital sometimes reflects the conservative redneck side more. A phelbotomist who forces her views against same-sex marriage to a male patient with HIV. Community groups that try to punish drug abusers by refusing to provide housing assistance. Wellness and prevention programs that excludes certain community members. The hospital is desperately trying to change all this and it shows. It is still a busy hospital and not as clean as it should be. The one thing that drives this hospital is the expertise from nearby Stanford.

When you call them to make an appointment wait time is very long especially if you have less free minutes in your phone plane :( Otherwise doctors, nurses and other staff is really nice. I find most of them very helpful. Once or twice I was lost in corridors and even I didn't ask for help their staff realize I need help and they ask me what I am looking for and guide me to right directions, I never seen in other hospital. If one don't have insurance they help you to find resources. I like Santa Clara Valley Medical center very much!
