University of Washington Medical Center is one of the nation's leading academic medical centers, which provides highly specialized medical care in areas such as cardiology, high-risk pregnancy and neonatal... more intensive care, oncology, orthopedics and organ transplantation.
My review is on the working here. I come here every now and then picking up patients and transporting them to someone else. The buildings are ridiculously big and sometimes confusing. The Front desk help... more is very friendly and very good at knowing which way to go if you are lost.
I have been to a few floors here and they are usually always friendly, kind, and actually caring towards the patients. A lot of the nurses joke around with the patients and have the patients smiling such a beautiful smile. It is good to know how caring they can be no matter how stressful the job.
Don't get me wrong, some of them can be cocky and it is annoying. But that does come with the job of having to do with peoples lives in your hands. But that only happens every now and then when someone is really really stressed. Which is usually Met By an apology. (very rarely has that happened.)
The parking is ridiculously horrible. There needs to be away to park a lot better in the front of the building. Or they need to at least figure out how to monitor it a lot more closely. So far my experiences here have been good. I've heard many great things about UW and what they do. I hope they get even more workers you continue to do a good job from what I have seen and experienced so far. My rating is a four because I have luckily been blessed with being healthy so have not needed to use the actual hospital. Also because the parking is terrible. Other than that very good hospital.
