I had my Pteregium removal and graft done in their OR/Surgery section with my Eye Doctor. Days before the surgery RNs called me a got all the pertinent information about me and my insurances. Well, that's the most important part of the calls. How are you gonna pay this hospital :). Then time came where I had to ask the time of my surgery... Guess what? These RNs don't freakin know. One of em tried to give me a number to call back. One of em transfer my call to another dept where she can't give me a tentative time. Then another one said.. most patient showed up here at 8 am... What kind of crap is this? Their excuse was.... well Doctor's schedules changes all the time so we have to give u a number to call the afternoon before your surgery... Wooow... you call this professional environment. Then what matter worst is that... I've never given any instructions about not taking any foods or drinks the day of the surgery. I had to argue inside the prep room about all of these. They have to confirm with my Dr that it's still ok to proceed. Procedure was done very well. The only complain i had was for us to drive to his clinic for contact lens right after surgery. My driver was not really familiar in Austin and I have to give direction while am still drugged with painful left eye. SCREWED-UP!!!!1 star for scheduling surgery1 star for the first rude RN named Sharon5 stars for the 2nd RN who prepd me4 stars for the procedure itself. had to take 1 for the lens1 star for 3 RNs who called me1 star for the RN who followed up on me.Would I recommend this OR/Surgical unit? If you have a V good doctor then yes.If you don't know your doctor then... Hell NO!

Seton Northwest Hospital
Excellent treatment from a top notch hospital and staff. In this day and time, I truly didn't think there were people that actually care about someones well being anymore. Seton proved me wrong in every way. Hats off to all of your nurses and doctors for saving my daughters life and restoring compassion and kindness into our community. Well done Seton Northwest.

Cornerstone Hospital of Austin
My good friend was just sent home from Cornerstone. We were vey happy with the care he recieved there. The staff was busy, but always made time for us. The DON and Administrator visited with him to make sure everything was going ok. If i ever needed to be in a hospital for a long time, I would go there. Tim

I truly do not know why this hospital has bad reviews. The facility was amazing, as was the nurses and doctors. They saved my life and I could not ask for a better place to be if you have to be in a hospital.
Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
