My mom was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma the spring of 2011 while she was an inpatient at Bronson Battle Creek. Her chemotherapy was started during her initial inpatient admission and continued over the next 6 months on an outpatient basis. We made a few trips to the Emergency Department and she was an inpatient off and on over the rest of 2011. During all those times she received excellent care and when I say “care” I really mean she was “cared for”. She was also admitted to the University of Michigan over the course of her treatment. My family and I noticed that Bronson Battle Creek had many advantages over a big hospital like the U. It made us all feel very lucky to have such a great hospital in our community. Thank you Bronson Battle Creek for “caring for” amd “being there” for us all.

I wish to offer my gratitude for quality service from the following people as they so aptly cared for my daughter and grandchild: (I may have missed a few, but they are to be included as well)
The two Doctors (one I mistook for the chaplain)
I am a Board Certified Hospital Chaplain and my wife is Executive Director for Patient Experience at Kettering Health Network. Thus said from our experience with hospital protocol we witnessed the finest quality work in the birth of our grandson Harper.
Their kindness and professionalism is outstanding.
Thank you for making this the most pleasant experience of our lives.

I commend Bronson hospital for excellent care that I have received over the years! I came in as a Burn Patient July 12, 2009. I was under the care of Dr. Alan Messenger and then became a patient of Dr. James Kraatz and Dr. Jeffery King. I must say without the knowledge and compassion of care that I had received from these doctors and also the care of the great supporting hospital staff from; Air Care, the cleaning crew, maintenance personnel, physical therapists, nurses, social workers, secretaries, doctors and PA’s. I am not sure where I would be today. I felt that the smiling faces and compassion that the entire staff carries makes me feel very privileged to be taken care of by these great people. I have been apart of other hospital systems and I do not feel I have ever gotten the level of care and courtesy of the other hospitals. Bronson feels like no other hospital and maybe that is in part to being a patient so long that I feel like your an extended part of my family. I feel Bronson not only gave me quality care but it made my quality of life much better than what it could have been. I Thank you ALL at Bronson for the support! On behalf, of myself and my family WE THANK YOU!!!

Was admitted on 01/29/2014 for minor in-patient surgery. The physician, Dr. Borozan, and the entire staff pre-surgery, surgery, and post-op were exceptional in providing me with every confort while I was there.
Very knowledgeable, caring staff from the check-in to post-op.
I can’t thank everyone enough for how I was taken care of.

I was a patient in BBC last September of 2013. I felt I received excellent care and hospital staff were very understanding of the needs of my wife who has Alzheimers.

My uncle was a patient who was admitted for high sugar. The care he received was great. The nursing and doctors treated him really good. One nurse while on the 5th floor asked him many times if he was ready to eat. I heard him tell my other uncle that this is the best hospital he has ever been to. Also, the doctor recalled treating him when is sugar was over 700 in CCU 5 years ago. The hospital has improved so much from that time. I am proud to have such a great hospital in our city to take care of my family.

This is unabashed praise for Doctor Wiggins, and the nursing team on the 3rd floor neurology. After a successful back surgery on my lower back yesterday, the entire Bronson team were absolutely fantastic. Joe Hillman (Nurse) and Brian Jennings (PA), were absolutely fantastic in their all night shift of taking care of me, and other patients. A shout out for nurses Dave, and Tammy, along with PAs Neil, and Katy.
The high degree of private rooms, food, and professionalism was unexpected, but very much appreciated. Need help?… someone is always there.
I really don’t know if there are hospitals, and staffs, equal to Bronson Hospital, but I do know that there are none better. Thanks to everyone, at Bronson, mentioned, and everyone of those, who I didn’t know their name.
You are the best.

My 80 year old father was admitted on the 27th of December from Three Rivers, and it wasn’t very long before we knew that his condition was terminal and made arrangements to move him to hospice. However, during the couple of days he was on the 2nd floor, I was overwhelmed by how gentle, caring, and compassionate EVERYONE was about my dad. Even thought he really couldn’t respond to the staff, they were wonderful. I especially want to single out on of the charge nurses – Ann. I’m sorry I don’t have a last name. But she was an angel. Clone her please! Dad was moved to Rose Arbor on the 30th and passed away early morning on the 31st. I will always be grateful to your excellent staff.

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.
