East Texas Medical Center-Tyler
My husband was in a serious car accident and this place was the best hospital I’ve ever been too. He was in ICU and the nurses there were so exceptional. They were all very helpful and answered all the questions I had in terms that myself and his family could understand, not in medical school language like you can get at times when you go to certain hospitals. They took care of him very well, and even when he was being mean, rude, and just out of hand they remained professional and courteous. My husband had two brain hemorrhages so at the time he had no control over his emotions or words that were coming out of his mouth and they understood that. I feel that it was with their care, a little hard work, and prayer that my husband was able to walk out of that hospital in a week. He went from not breathing on his own day one, day two he got words, day three sentences, and day four he could talk but not remember a thing, and by the end of the week he was good enough to come home. I believe it was due not only to a small miracle, but also their care that helped him recover so well. Even afterwards he was supposed to have his symptoms and issues a lot longer than he did, but they gave specific and great instruction for me to get set up with a healing plan when I got home to Michigan. My husband has since made a full recovery, and every doctor he's been too cannot believe he has healed at the rate he has, and I can't give enough credit to the nurses and doctors of this hospital. They were very persistent, and wouldn't let him give up. I really wish I could recall some of the nurses names but the one reminded me of Reese wither spoon in sweet home Alabama. She was just so genuine, and truly seemed to care about my husband’s well being. She helped me through the tragedy during those first 48 hours that was really intense for myself and my husband’s family. Thank you so much ETMC in Tyler Texas. You saved my husband’s life and I will forever be in your debt.

The Louis & Peaches Owen Heart Hospital
Very clean, the staff are great, knowledgeable and truly care for the patients and their family. The rooms are large. The nurses take the time needed to really know what's going on
Tips & Advices
Many hospitals have their own websites that include information about services offered and how to contact personnel. But you can also search online, in the phone book, and through health and medical-focused review websites.
Medical service prices vary according to the hospital, the type of procedure, and many regulations. The price that a patient actually pays will depend on their insurance coverage policies. If they do not have health insurance, patients may establish payment plans with the health care provider directly.
Most Americans older than 65 are insured under the Medicare program for emergency hospital visits and basic medical care. Whether you are about to turn 65 or already have, you should familiarize yourself with the Medicare program and the benefits it provides. Medicare can work in conjunction with a workplace or other private health plan. Seniors should also take the time to establish legal documents concerning future medical care and end-of-life procedures. These include a living will, advance medical directive, and related documents.
Visitation rules vary by hospital, but in general, any biological or legal family member of a patient is allowed to visit them at an appropriate time and at the patient’s discretion. Friends are typically  allowed to visit at the patient’s and their caregiver’s discretion. A patient may also designate a support person to make decisions on their behalf regarding visitation.
Ambulances are driven and staffed by medical professionals who will transport patients to the closest hospital that can provide the specific services needed. Some hospitals specialize in certain types of emergency care - facilities that specialize in trauma, heart attacks, stroke victims, and children are a few common examples. The patient being transported has the right to request a particular hospital, but the ambulance personnel may refuse this request if they have reason to believe treatment is required as soon as possible. Paramedics may require you to sign a waiver before transporting you to a hospital that you request.
