It was very busy that day but everything went like clockwork. I did not have to wait long to go back for my procedure. Nurses always had time to answer my questions – good sense of team work.
Pekin Hospital always serves very good food. It is hard to please everyone, but you do an excellent job!
My Dad worked for years in the surgery department of another hospital, and he came to your ER with cardiac issues. My concern was that we might need to transfer him to that hospital, but his care at Pekin was absolutely outstanding and I never had any desire to move Dad. I think when people do an outstanding job, it's important to make sure Administration knows that.
Our nurse was great! She was very friendly, with genuine concern. I did not have a copy of my current medical card, but the registration person told me I already had one on file. She looked it up and printed it for me!
This visit has changed my mind considerably about Pekin Hospital and the way things are run there today. It's the people that make a difference, and you can be proud of the staff you have.
Everyone was kind and considerate. They were very helpful with the directions about what I should do when I get home.
I am an RN and have worked in other facilities including those in Peoria, but I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality and professionalism of the Physical Therapy staff. They had handouts with directions written for me – not all hospitals do this. A very good experience.
I moved to Washington from Pekin, and I still drive to Dr. Hunter’s office because I really like her and trust her.
Doctor was great and made conversation with us while we were there.
Everyone - even the CNAs on the floor and transporters - was outstanding. I have just never seen that type of personal care like my Dad received the few days he was at Pekin Hospital.
I really liked the Home Health nurses and therapists. They took my pain away. I think this is a very good program.
