Any opinions on the quality of this hospital and staff? Considering seeing a surgeon there, but depends on the doc and hospital. Don't know much about either!

My personal experience was not good there. They also have an awful reputation with the locals. Having said that I pretty much always hear bad things from locals about the hospitals in their areas.

In our area we have access to 3 hospitals, from a 30 mile drive to a 70 mile drive.

If you ask around, one of the three will assure you don't leave alive, and the same facility gets top marks from another reviewer.

I've done a few stays at one of them, and there were good points and bad points, however I don't put any confidence in most reviews.

Thankfully none of my family has needed to go to the hospital in the 2+ years I've been here, but I'm sorry to say that like the previous poster I've heard bad things from the locals.

Also I talked to some folks who are recent arrivals like us, and they had a terrible experience there last year with their child nearly dying because they didn't diagnose him properly (he was then sent to Little Rock and recovered).

I've heard good things about Baxter Regional in Mountain Home; I actually accompanied someone to an appointment there and it all looked very clean and modern, staff were all pleasant and professional, etc. So depending where you are located that might be worth looking into.

Baxter is one of the facilities for us, and I've had nothing but good things happen with some of the Drs. I use over there.

There are some good places to grab lunch in Mountain Home also.
