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.
Pekin Hospital has made a lot of great changes for the best... it benefits me as a patient and Pekin as my hometown.
My Dad was a patient at Pekin Hospital, and I just want you to know how pleased we are with the care he had. Jeremiah was my Dad's nurse most of the time - he is so kind, caring and compassionate. I've never met a nurse like him.
When my daughter was ill, I called the office to get their help. The nurse returned my call within 15 minutes and scheduled an appointment to see the doctor within the hour.
It was not my intention to deliver at Pekin Hospital - I was pre-registered at a Peoria hospital... but I was having strong contractions, an ice storm was starting, and my doctor was gone on vacation. I drove myself to Pekin Hospital since I live less than a mile away. I was treated so well that I decided to deliver there.
All of the staff were informative and helpful. All nurses are friendly, helpful and efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend Pekin Hospital's services.
They did a quick strep swab - results were given in 15 to 20 minutes. Nurse was very quick with the swab and that made it very comfortable.
My experiences with the Women's Diagnostic Center have always been very good. I especially like not having to wait ... getting in and out in a matter of minutes.
The technician who drew my blood was very friendly and efficient. It did not hurt at all!
The doctor was very upbeat and made the visit to the hospital as much of a good visit as possible. He was very good at making my daughter laugh.
Have always gotten excellent care. The staff go way beyond caring, helping, and seeing to our safety as a patient. Always a smile.
