If I could put a 0 I would! This hospital put me through a run around! They didn't care my daughter was breached at all now they try to charge me with 2000 dollars and it went up to 4000 dollars because... more they were to lazy to look up my medical information! DO NOT GO HERE! They will do their best to rip you off
Please beware whittier hospital emergency room does not employ any of the doctors. So regardless of your insurance and/or the the hospital being in your network you will get a large bill from the Doctor... more who helped you. For example, In my case I confirmed with my insurance and with the hospital that they were covered by my insurance and in my network. Unfortunately what they don't tell you is that they don't employ the doctors so they are not covered. My insurance paid for the hospital and all the additional services but would not cover the Doctor. Now, I have to pay the Doctor over a thousand dollars for my visit where he saw me for maybe 10 minutes. I also called the doctor office and they do not negotiate at all. So unfortunately even If take all the proper precautions It makes no difference. Stay away unless you have no choice.
Friendly staff and friendly nurse. Props to nurse Alison. Security at the front checks you in and gives you a wrist band. FREE PARKING WITH VALIDATION. Came here for my grandma she had surgery. They made... more sure my grandma was comfortable and well hydrated. My grandpa stayed with her during the night so the nurse was VERY accommodating to bring a rollout bed for him to sleep next to her. My grandma didn't eat for a long time due to surgery so nurse helped bring a dinner menu for her (with diabetic jello dessert) which she said very VERY TASTY. As a restaurant reviewer, I am going to post a picture of their food :) I feel hospital food can be underrated but I feel that this hospital was very helpful and attentive to my grandma's needs. Thank you.
