I am really grateful to Emerson Hospital. I came into the E.R. with potential heart issues; I was immediately given an EKG, was taken into a room within...

My daughter recently was seen by Dr Goudie at Emerson's ER recently with an on-going issue. While Children's Hospital was helpful in the initial diagnosis, they gave little sense of importance to a recurrence. Even my daughter's own pediatrician had distanced herself from the situation by telling us she was just avoiding school and we needed to force her to go and not let the school send her home, even when she vomited in class. Her condition, which started 2 months ago & was initially treated well, had returned and had more recently persisted for over 10 days. Dr Goudie was terrific in communicating with our daughter who was in pain and very upset. Finally, someone took her situation very seriously! His bedside manner, diagnosis & treatment were all spot on as my daughter left feeling validated and more importantly, feel better. She improved tremendously when she started taking her new prescription and several days later she remains feeling well as we look forward to our appointment with a specialist.

First time at the ER with my 1 yr old today and everyone was so nice especially having a sick child. I’ve never had generous care from start to finish so it was very refreshing. My nurse, Kristin, was amazing so, THANK YOU.

10/10 we were just there for our second child birth and they were amazing. Our nurses Lilly and Karen were phenomenal. Could not have gone better.

Going to Emerson, even for an emergency is like going to the spa compared to other hospitals. The care is excellent, everything is beautifully updated, super clean and doesn't have that weird hospital smell. My daughter and I have been going there for everything since 2006 and we never had a bad experience. If hospitals intimidate you, make the drive to Emerson its well worth it
