Taking Your Child to the ER at 5:30 in the Morning is Scary

Alex GookinI was unfortunate to have to go to the ER one afternoon because of an accident, but fortunate that the staff that worked When we arrived at JCHC with our son, Alex, we weren't sure what was going to happen. Dr. Eisner in the ER, Dr. Ivins (Alex's surgeon), and the entire staff at the hospital were incredibly professional. They kept us informed at every step. They were constantly doing everything they could to make Alex comfortable and keep Ann and I calm. We were confident Alex was getting the best care possible. And, the new hospital provided such a comfortable and relaxing environment that you hardly realized you were in a hospital. We were overwhelmed by the kindness of the staff and their caring attitude. It's easy to understand why our hospital has consistently received the highest ratings for patient satisfaction. We are so grateful to have this wonderful facility in Fairfield with doctors and staff that truly care about the patient and their family. Thanks, JCHC, for your reassuring help in our time of need.

The care and hospitality I received at the Jefferson County Health Center was exceptional. The time between diagnosis and surgery was only a few hours, which made pain and recovery time very manageable. The surgery went very well and the staff was constantly caring for me.My recovery was quick and I felt 100% within a matter two weeks. Every nurse I had was very polite and made sure I was as comfortable as I could be. The room I was placed in was very clean, pleasant, and friendly. All my guests made at least one comment on how great the rooms were. I would like to thank all of the staff at the JCHC for all the help I received and the fast recovery.
