Very positive experience. My elderly mother was transferred to this hospital for an endoscopic procedure designed to keep her from having gall bladder surgery. The staff and doctors she saw were all wonderful! Attentive and patient to an elder persons needs. She was there four days and there’s not one thing I can think of to complain about.

Overall Rating:

Jefferson hospital is horrible, the treatment from nurses, doctors everyone was horrible. They do not care about the patient or family members, all they care about is the money. My husband got a bed sore and they do not turn you or do there jobs. My husband has a broken call bell and they never got him a new one. The nurses, doctors everyone was always on there phones instead of doing there jobs which is taking care of the patients. All the doctors want to do is give you pain meds and move on. If you r really sick they don’t want you because they will have to actually work. The sad part is these doctors and nurses get paid so much and want to do so little. But guess what one day one of there loved ones will Be in the hospital and I hope they get the same treatment my husband received which was horrible then they will realize that compassion and care goes a long way which this hospital has none.

I would like to thank the wonderful doctors and nurses that caring for my mother in the Intensive Cardiac Care Unit and the whole team. There isn't enough words to tell you how grateful and humble I am. You save my mother. Yes, she may have a long road ahead of her but you gave her back to me and my family. I thank you for everything. Dr. Marpheka and Dr. Mario and the cardiac team and the GI team, I&D team, Rehab Team Nursing Team Respiratory Team. The best place for healthcare in Pennsylvania will always be Thomas Jefferson University Hospital of Philadelphia.
