Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC) is the community’s health care safety net – in more ways than one. County residents with no medical coverage or ability to pay can get needed care, but SCVMC... more is also the “safety net” for every resident of our community because of the high-quality, specialized services provided. Treatment for emergency medical care, trauma, burns and rehabilitation are just a few of the specialized treatments provided – in some cases the only such treatment in the region.
I was brought here by ambulance due to a DVT in my right leg and a PE. Aside from a couple of exceptions, the staff have all treated Me with the courtesy and respect that I deserve as a human being. People... more complain about long wait times, etc. You have to remember, SCVMC is classified as a County Hospital. Ergo, you WILL see more patients in the ER, and experience longer wait times.
The care I've received here so far has been outstanding. And I would recommend this place to anyone needing top-notch care.
(Special thanks to Doctor Wang, 3 Surgical floor for going, what I believe to be, above and beyond the call. Much appreciated Doctor Wang)
