Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center
The medical attention I received after a fall at work was very throrough. I really liked the knowledgable and professional medical staff. However, they really need to do something about their receptionists. They are the most unfriendly and rude I have ever dealt with. In a office where patients are feeling awful, (specifically children). It would be nice to feel some compassion from those who your coming to in a unpleasant circumstance, not to "sit down, wait, we will call you." I honestly just had a question about the paperwork. at one point when a very sick little boy began throwing up and his clearly overwhelmed young mother asked for paper towels and some water for him, she was snapped at. You will get good care here but don't expect to be comforted.
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.
