I’m so glad I went to Bronson Battle Creek

December 30, 2013

by: Talia Champlin

I knew I was going to need stitches after a young horse jolted back and hit me in the face. What I struggled with was where to go for treatment. Did I need to see a specialist? Where would I get the best care? I was terrified I’d be left with a big scar on my face. I needed to do something. So I decided to go to Bronson Battle Creek. And now, I’m so glad I did. Everyone in that emergency department was incredibly comforting and kind. I didn’t have to wait long. And my doctor was absolutely fantastic. He made me laugh when I needed it most, and my face healed up nicely. In fact, everyone kept telling me, “I can’t believe you got those stitches just a few days ago.” So thank you, Bronson. Thank you for making my bad day a whole lot better.

Our 4 year old son would not be here with us without him

March 31, 2015

by: Erin Spencer

We were sent to Bronson’s neuroscience center after finding an extreme amount of fluid in our 5 1/2 month old son’s brain. MRI was done immediately and an appointment with Dr.Daryl Warder. He explained to us that our son had a cyst the size if an orange in the center of his brain and that he needed surgery asap. He was admitted right then and surgery was the very next day. Dr. Warder is amazing and we thank God for him every day. Our now 4 year old son would not be here with us without him. With yearly MRIs and follow up visits with Dr. Warder our son is a happy, playful, busy, normal 4 year old.

You were very caring and compassionate and patient with me.

I want to thank all of the staff for putting up with me while I was there for my extended stay. The nusring staff was great and the PCA were amazing. The doctors – especially hospitalist Dr. Sciuca – I thank you personally. You were very caring and compassionate and patient with me. I will never forget anyone on the 2nd floor.

All the EVS workers always kept my room very clean for me. They were all very pleasant and kind to me. Michael was always asking if I needed anything even though I didn’t. And when my day was not the best, her spirit and smile always brought my spirits back up and my days were better. You all did your jobs well and to all of you, God bless you always!

Very fortunate that I was sent to Bronson Hospital

I am from St. Louis and was visiting at my 2nd home in South Haven when I broke my hip (the pickleball man). I consider it very fortunate that I was sent to Bronson Hospital. I have been to hospitals, as a patient or a visitor, in Des Moines, Indianapolis, St. Louis and Rochester, MN (Mayo Clinic affiliated) and none hold a candle to the culture of caring, positive professionalism that we met at every turn during our stay at Bronson. The amazing thing is that that culture is embraced by all of the Bronson employees. As my wife moved throughout the hospital, she said everyone she encountered was eager to assist her (to the point of even escorting her to where she was trying to go). Dr Rowe was fantastic as the surgeon. And I give a special thanks to Tina and Ethel, two outstanding nurses. The hospital room was beautiful and my wife tells me that was true of the entire hospital. The nice surroundings also add to recovery. Thanks to Dr. Rowe and his staff, all the nurses and PCAs, the physical therapy department, case manager, Dr. Pierce and associates, and the recovery and OR nurses. To a one, all were great.

Erin the scheduler for the Out Patient Interventional Radiology department is always so cheerful and accomidating when I call, she takes time to listen to you and shows compassion. I have had unplanned side effects from cancer and she has made sure I am taken care of and goes out of her way to find the perfect time slot for me and my treatment! This has made an unpleasant time much much easier and tolerable for me! Thank you Erin for your Positivity!

Dr. Houchin’s exam, consultation, and treatment plan were ‘spot on’.

As a practicing dentist in the Kalamazoo area, I would like to commend Dr. Houchin and Bronson for what I thought was a very positive medical experience. Dr. Houchin’s exam, consultation, and treatment plan were ‘spot on’. In addition, his explanation of my condition,subsequent need for testing, and medication was very thorough and informative. Very impressive; thanks!

For the second time in 2 months, my family ended up in Bronson ER. For the second time in 2 months, we were treated wonderfully and given great care. Bronson is awesome!

I would recommend every single person we encountered that night to any of my friends and family members.

My 2 year old and I were recently patients at Beckley Road Urgent Care. I cannot begin to express how kind, compassionate & thorough our treatment was. From the moment we checked in, Bronson exceeded our expectations. I knew that the office was working in a new computer system so I anticipated a lengthy wait however, that was not the case at all. After a speedy check in from the wonderful registration clerk we were called promptly to a room. Once in the room our nurse went over and above to make us feel comfortable, no detail was too small. Shortly after our nurse left, Dr. Cesar Baldeon came into the room to assess us. Immediately upon entering the room Dr. Baldeon began trying to make my son feel more comfortable by offering him exam gloves & a tongue depressor. Despite a busy evening Dr. Baldeon listened to every concern we had without making us feel as though we were burdening him. After our exams he even gave my son a matchbox car. I would recommend every single person we encountered that night to any of my friends and family members. Thank you to staff & physicians alike for the amazing care at Urgent Care on February 20, 2015, you are all rock stars!!!

I go to Bronson Vicksburg for my x-rays, mainly because of Karen. She really cares about the patients and is always so kind. Many times when you have to get x-rays, your in pain and Karen is always very careful and truly concerned for the patient. She is such a sweet person and really puts forward the Bronson Positivity.
