Providence Milwaukie Hospital 10150 SE 32nd Ave. Milwaukie, Oregon 97222 I arrived at your emergency room on, Feb. 14, 2010, after visiting the Immediate Care Center at Gateway. My expectations having had a quadruple bypass 20 yrs earlier, at another hospital, could not have been more terrifying. During that experience I had no say in what was happening to me. I was immediately surrounded by doctors and nurses each poking, prodding, and sticking me with needles with no concern for the fact that they were compounding the heart attack I was in the middle of. Lucky for me the surgeon came in and made them stop till I was given something to calm me. After the surgery my back hurt unbearably. My complaints were totally ignored for two days. So dying from a heart attack or going to a hospital was almost a toss up for me. I learned that checking into a hospital meant you gave up all control over yourself, something I have a real phobia about. There are no words to express the vast difference I experienced at Providence Milwaukie. From admissions to checkout I experienced the exact opposite of my previous hospital experience. I always felt that your people not only listened to me but followed up on everything I said, or asked for. Im now retired but spent 40 years writing and presenting training programs for food services. The cornerstone of my training programs was to first listen to the customer/employee. Second to feed back what was heard to confirm understanding. Finally, to do everything in their power to take care of the customer/employees concerns, needs. Your team has mastered that process. Your personnel department has done an excellent job of finding, training, and following up on the people on your team. The administrative, nursing, doctor, food service, housekeeping staffs, and everyone else I met or received service from at your hospital consistently exceeded anything I could have expected while taking care of me. If I ever need hospital care again I will go out of my way to go to Milwaukie Hospital, and will not hesitate to recommend you. With deepest appreciation Thank each and every one of you. William H. Baker, (Bill)
I am happy to share my experienced in Providence, Milwaukee Hospital. I am not fun of being in the Hospital but the Providence, Milwaukee Hospital makes a whole lot fun for me. Its my first time to be a guest on Americas Hospital, I was blown away how courteous they are. The nurses are kind, friendly, smiling, approachable, and very good at giving directions. I am truly amazed of the nurses I had encountered, besides with having a degree and theyre still very down to earth person. My heartfelt thanks to all the nurses and doctors that took good care of my husbands surgery. I am very grateful seeing my husband that no longer suffering from massive pains. Now hes doing fine and continuing working on balance. I am back in the Philippines but I carried with me all the good values Ive learned during my times in America and people who touches my lives I own you a big thanks. I had my down moments and I am very grateful to those American who helped me without hesitation and by that time I came to think that wherever in the world therere always a good person whos ready to give you a hand. I definitely recommend the Providence, Milwaukee Hospital to my friends, also the country and the people of the United States of America. MABUHAY AMERICA !!! Love from Philippines, Shelly Jones

I went to ER Late one weekend night with a few family members. Several Panic/Anxiety attack symptoms, chest pain, difficulty breathing, just put on many new meds by PC. PCs answering service sent me to nearest hospital and even called in my iminent arrival. Instantly treated like a psych patient. No blood work, no IV, no urinalysis, held for nearly 24 hours in ER gurney, Was only told that my family said I wanted to kill myself which is a blatent lie (I dont and they didnt say that) and that they were waiting for a psych eval from Prov Portland. Everyone except nurses treated me like a freak and was mean, rude and I wish there was a recourse I had. I have been to many ERs over the years and never been treated with such disdain and attitude. When my PC called with a note about possible drug interactions on prescribing end and I am held like this with no testing, well.....you could probably see that it was a horrid experience. So sad they are the closest hospital. Piece of advice to intake staff....dont eat and kick your feet back while doing an intake on a frantic scared pain patient (or any person for that matter) RUDE
I was admitted here after my sister called our mom of me complaining of rib pain, my mom then took me here after i was in extreme pain and they took my blood work and xrays as well since i have health insurance, and after one xray a minute later, they diagnosed me as having constrodritis, and even then i had an ultrasound done here to make sure i had no kidney stones either! As always the staff were very freindly and caring and they cared about every single detail i told them and explained to them about, I do have another ultrasound which is due next June! Its for a spot in my stomach to make sure it does not grow and is benign is what i was told by my nice and freindly doctor Jessica Burness who assured me that everything was fine and yes the results did not come back positive which was good enough for me, They helped us, explained to us everything was good and i will be coming back to this hospital more, the staff again are very freindly and caring and do care about what your going through, i was also told it was nothing serious at all either, so definitly a 10 outta 10, and they did their jobs well too imao!
In 2010 i drove myself to Providence Milwaukee Hospital from Powell & 65th, by the time i reached the ER i knew something was very wrong due to the horrible pain i was in. I had no health insurance so going to the ER was an act of desperation. In minutes the staff had me in a room and i was surrounded by health care professionals. My pain was relieved and arrangements made to transport me to Providence Portland Hospital. In a confused state i asked why they were taking my clothes? Kindly a staff told me " mamn you are having a heart attack and going into surgery". From the time i stubbled into Providence Milwaukie Hospital till i was wheeled out of Providence Portland Hospital I was treated well by all the health care professionals and staff of both hospitals. They saved my life and I am forever grateful for the professional and quality care i was given, thankyou.
I dont like having my blood drawn but on Monday I did what I had to do and was helped by a very nice woman who distracted me by talking about her Mothers day and being very considerate of my unreasonable concerns. After this, I went over to the coffee bar and a very kind young man created a custom drink for me (in consideration of my allergies), going above the call of his normal job. Also, the friendly volunteer who was there to usher clients to their next destination quickly, was appreciated. And, the food in the cafe (especially the fruit flavored water), is always good for me. So all, in all.......a good day spent doing the thing I dont like to do was made better. Thank you Providence Milwaukie (please dont grow any larger!).
