Just back from a hernia repair at JoBrant. I’d give it, and the whole lead up to the operation - Reception, nurses, doctors, support...a solid 4.5. I’d give it a 5 but they didn’t have a USB plug on my brand new bed. :) I saw brand new facilities, better working environment and hard working , friendly people doing a great job. Please note that I was born in this hospital, have relied on it for my own family, and have had different experiences, which would have caused a solid 1 star...but alas. Yes, I’m still on the morphine as I type this, but I truly believe Jo Brant has made huge strides in the last decade...and more to come I hope. Well done!

My 85 year old wife has minor cognitive impairment and a fear of falling complex. She was admitted Sept 02 because she WOULD not stand due to lack of confidence with the worker would was having trouble getting her up. The so called health team at Joe Brant refused to listen to me and insisted she had something else and would not contact the family doctor to confirm After 4 weeks of negative test results and being kept basically bedridden she was deemed to have no medical reason to be in hospital. Now after 6 weeks she CANT get up without a 2 person assist. We now have to wait for a long term bed with a long waiting list. Joe Brant ruined our life. Don't go there!

We’ve been here for 3 hrs at the ER and not even a question asked, no dr. Staff is not friendly at all they treat patients like they are doing ya a favour and we pay their salaries with our taxes but is we don’t do anything they will continue with their bad service.

Terrible terrible hospital!!!! Paramedics brought my mom into this “ so called hospital” due to a severe seizure. Doctor didn’t know what he was talking about! Ran a few test and decided to discharge my mother while she was still incoherent and not mobile!! 2 hours later I had to bring her to another hospital due to high fever! Idiots! Your license should be revoked!

My husband had surgery at another hospital on August 1. Removal of cancer and ileostomy bag given. Went JB emerg 7 days later as he had a lot of pain. Couldn’t bring him to original hospital as the drive was to long for him to bear. They upped his pain killers, took a CT scan, observed for a day and then sent him home. Back at JB emerg this past Thursday. Pain was excruciating. They took another CT scan, upped his painkiller dosage and sent him home the same day. Brought him to OT emerg yesterday. Another CT scan taken. They immediately found a 30cm abscess. He’s in now having it drained and they are putting him on IV antibiotics. Not happy with JB’s bandaid department although I will say the nurses were amazing.

I worked at this hospital as an intern 10 years ago and I thought it was a terrible hospital because the staff's attitude was so appalling. Now that I am reading all these negative reviews here, it seems like nothing has changed! One time I was in the cafeteria and this man was telling his wife "Please get me out of here!".

I recently had a diseased kidney removed at Joseph Brant, which required a few days of inpatient care to recover enough to be able to go home. I've had previous stays in hospitals (although none in the past few decades) and I had been fearing and dreading my surgery date... this fear and dread was unnecessary. The surgical team was amazing, and they instilled in me such a feeling of comfort and safety. I knew I was in good hands. My inpatient room was beautiful, modern and clean, with an amazing panoramic view of the lake and the Burlington skyline. The nursing staff were lovely; friendly and attentive. I have never felt so well cared for during an extended hospital stay. At the push of a button I could speak directly with the nurse's desk via intercom, and if needed had a nurse at my side a minute later. This was a memorable experience, rather than one I would wish to forget. My sincere thanks to you all. My ONLY complaint... the food. This is not directly the fault of Joseph Brant, and certainly not the staff's fault; unlike the old days, hospitals no longer have their own kitchen and kitchen staff. I would rate their catering service a solid WTF out of 5. I of course wasn't expecting much following surgery (liquid diet at first) and I rather like bouillon and Jell-o, but I eagerly awaited my first solid food breakfast. My past hospital experiences have been meals that although not fancy, were nourishing and hearty. The trays I received were meager pickings, and what little there was on the tray was practically inedible. Healing requires nourishment. Somebody dropped the ball here. But the fare at the Cafe downstairs is superb, and there's also a Tim Horton's. I strongly suggest arranging to have a friend or family member fetch your meals for you, or bring them from home. But apart from that technicality, my rating for this wonderful hospital stands at 5/5. This experience has renewed my faith in Canadian health care.

I've been to Jo Brant for both gall bladder surgery and to the ER for a couple of issues. Yes, the ER was a long wait, but, well worth it. They are VERY thorough!
