Recently gave birth to my son at Palo Pinto General hospital. I can't find or say all the words to describe how amazing each and every one of the staff members were! They were all extremely sweet, caring and outstanding. I especially could not have imagined doing it without two specific nurses, Cathy and Heidi. They were beyond helpful, supportive, very caring, never hesitated to answer any of my million questions, and always made sure I was okay. My labor and delivery there could not have gone any better! Thank y'all so much
Employees are always helpful, friendly. Usually the wait to see a doctor in the emergency room isnt too long and no matter if your health issue at the time is severe or not - each patient is treated with the same care, kindness & compassion.
Great service! Hands down the best place to have a baby. From labor & delivery to postpartum to caring for the baby, best people to have caring for your.
