First off, I had high hopes for this hospital. I applied to work here as a medical lab technologist when it first opened but decided to explore other hospitals (keep in mind I have a healthcare background here and don't speak ill of hospitals unless its justly deserved). My mother-in-law recently went here after she experience severe swelling and pain in her ankles and was barely able to walk. At first, the nurses were outright rude to her and my fiancée. Okay I understand you may have a bad day, but don't take it out on your patients. If I'm asked to be respectful in a hospital, I expect the SAME! After she got x-rays done (which was about 5 hours later) and no blood work she was seen by the physician. When asked why no bloodwork was done, the physician preceded to indicate that NO bloodwork is done for ER patients (an outright lie) and had the audacity to tell us that any bloodwork would take 2-3 weeks to get back and only when challenged did he say that bloodwork is done on in-patients only in-house. Right. So you're telling me a big hospital like this doesn't do bloodwork on its patients ESPECIALLY the ER?! I work as a lab technologist, don't try to play dumb with me and make me out to be incompetent. One of the biggest things though to irritate me further was that his "diagnosis" was based completely on a hunch and didn't like that we insisted on bloodwork (even a coag PT/PTT/D-Dimer would have been nice to rule out let's say DVT or embolism?). At that point, I didn't want to argue because it seriously wasn't worth it. All he could offer was minor painkillers (because she was a diabetic,and as not to impaired her decreased kidney function) and recommended 4-6 weeks of limited physical activity and only after we advised him that if she goes home WITHOUT BLOODWORK and ends up with seriously complications, we were going to hold him accountable for it. At the end, no reasonable answer was given and we were thoroughly disappointed and complained to the hospital the next day. Seriously I do not recommend this hospital for any type of emergency situation. Better off going to even a small hospital like Fergus, they are limited staff, but actually do baseline testing!

Horrible service .. horrible wait times.. if you get stuck in zone E you wait for hours. God forbid they should have more emergency doctors available. When u actually see one .. he may or may not be knowledgeable .. they did a few mistakes with my family .. we go there when its night or when we need an xray ..

I would opt out of this hospital if you are lucky enough to live close to another one. I was referred to the ER by a doctor with severe back and pelvis pain, with a request to have a chest X-RAY. The doctor was annoyed I came stating "we are not a cancer hospital". Heck, I had no idea I was suspected to have cancer? The doctor continuously claimed I was having abdomen pain, and even though I corrected her multiple times, she still wrote 'abdominal pain' on my chart. I was referred to an oncologist with no X-RAY and no pain medication. A week later, the oncology office they apparently referred me to had never even received my referral. After spending hours on the phone with different departments, I MYSELF had to let the medical records worker know that my referral was never received. Seems like a lot of work for a patient in severe pain (who also ISNT a Doctor)? DO NOT GO HERE IF IT'S AN EMERGENCY . DO NOT GO HERE

Most ignorant, disinterested staff who always look bored or irritated to deal with you. No communication between doctors, takes forever for a diagnosis if they can actually be bothered, staff that has no clue what they're doing but will happily be condescending about it. Awful, awful awful elder care. They seem more interested in hoping a patient gets better on their own or dies, since actually working inconveniences them from taking coffee breaks, goofing off and flirting with the cops and paramedics.

Very unpleasant experience. Unfriendly staff that did not communicate well and were not empathetic. After one hour and a half hour of waiting, the nurse cimmimented it's only been hour and a half, it could be another 3 hours. Walked out. Will go private
