I am interested in your opinions as to the care and service given by various area hospitals.

My husband's family has (for some reason no one can remember) always gone to Methodist, and yet during the last two family hospitalizations the care has just not been there. (There were routine 45-minute waits for water or medication, and a couple of waits that were over an hour--and we're talking medication that was truly, desperately needed by patients that were temporarily bedridden.)

I am not interested in bashing the good doctors, nurses and staff (who may very well just be overworked), but I think it's my responsibility to avoid poor care in the future if I can.

So, what hospital has been best in your experience, and why exactly do you think so?

For outpatient surgery, MASH can not be beat. Methodist Ambulatory Surgical Center. Both my son and I had surgery there this year, and our care was wonderful.

My daughter had her tonsils and adenoids out at North Central Baptist and it was a very good experience. They were very attentive to her and I stayed in her room overnight so I saw firsthand the level of care.

I spent 6 days at St. Luke's last month for surgery and it was without a doubt a great experience. I had no problem with waits for meds or if I called the nurse for something. The response was prompt and courteous... even when I needed help in the middle of the night. I was even fantastically surprised to find out about the food. I thought for sure I would need family and friends to smuggle food from outside in but the food was actually top notch. Not great food but it was good and I ate it all.

St. Luke's was great and after having my surgery there I can honestly say the most difficult thing about my surgery is the rehab!

A big thanks to anyone and everyone who works at St. Luke's!
