I had physical therapy at least 2 times a week for about a month at Bronson, and all thanks goes to Karen and Justin for helping me in the months time. It was quite easy talking to either of them. If you ever have physical therapy at Battle Creek Bronson, I would highly recommend either one of them to get you through it. Thank you guys for being so amazing.

Last week I needed a quick X ray done. Karen at Vicksburg’s Bronson Hospital was the radiology tech who did the X rays. She was warm and friendly, yet professional. Karen made me feel comfortable and we shared easy conversation. After the X rays were taken, Karen showed them to me which I loved. Many thanks to Karen for making my visit to Bronson an enjoyable one.

Highly recommend this hospital for the very good care

I came into the ED this just a few days ago, with severe abdominal pain and nausea. In the Ed, i was given very good care by Gary, Jen, Dr Goldberg and Katie. I was sent to CT, and Amy quickly did my CT, and was very good to me. I was then sent to 5th floor, where I spent part of the night to early morning, and got very good care by Terry, and Olivia and a nice gentleman nurse, that took excellent care of me, but I didnt remember his name, as I was drugged pretty good at the time. I then went to Surgery taken by Rick, who did a great job, and Season checked me in, and got me prepped. Dr Lins, Dr Bartholemew and Pam got me ready to go to surgery to have my appendix removed, and they also fixed an umbilical hernia while in there. I was then taken to recovery, where Cheri did a fantastic job prior to sending me home. The whole visit went very good, and everyone did the best job they could do to make my visit, a very good one, under the circumstances. I would highly recommend this hospital for the very good care that I got. I am also a bronson employee. I was very pleased with my treatment from start to finish.

Could not be more happy with my current primary care physician

I have been a patient of Dr. Houchin at the Groves (Bronson) location in Portage for almost 6 months. I have never had such a great experience with a doctor’s office before. First of all, Dr. Houchin is great because he listens to where you are medically, and doesn’t just throw you a script to get you at the door. He deals with the whole person and assesses very well what needs to be done. He has helped me overcome a past of addictive behavior by preventative medications, and a brief lesson every time I see him. I know I am just one of the many patients he sees, but I am always better off when I leave. This is a great family environment as well. I Could not be more happy with my current primary care physician, and will continue seeing Dr. Houchin. Also, the nursing staff is great.

Excellent care from everyone

I just total knee replacement on Oct 27, 2014. I got excellent care from everyone. It was such a treat to have a private room and enjoy the quiet when I was alone. It was very restful and helped me to heal. I was very apprehensive about surgery as I have never had anything like this. Everyone explained everything to me and were very helpful .They all had their hearts in their jobs. You all get a five star rating from me and my husband. Thank you all so much,Norma Hamilton

Things at Bronson are better than ever, with no end in sight.

After just receiving a thank you card from the Adult Medical Unit, I just can’t hesitate any longer to express my gratitude for the tremendous professionalism displayed by the staff there during my hospital stay between October 16 and October 24, 2014.

From the physicians to the RNs to the patient care assistants to the phlebotomists to the food service crew to even the environmental services staff, I was treated with respect, kindness and good humor at all times without exception. This made my stay at Bronson a positive experience in spite of the seriousness of the event that caused me to be hospitalized.

As a former Bronson employee (Security, 1974-1978), it would be easy for me to say that things aren’t like they used to be. Speaking as a patient, I have to say that things at Bronson are better than ever, with no end in sight.

I was blown away at the professional and caring attitude.

This is my first time coming to Bronson for an outpatient procedure and it was an awesome experience! Not many people are happy about any kind of surgery experience, but I was blown away at the professional and caring attitude of Mike Bush and nurse Kerri-T-C! Thank you guys for making me relaxed and confident in your service. God bless you both and don’t change a thing! Thank you again, Debra Lockhart-Correll.

The doctor and nurses were great, friendly and cheerful.

As I was pregnant thinking about going through labor was worrisome for me being the first time. The doctor and nurses were great, friendly and cheerful, they checked my newborn out often after birth and thoroughly before he went home after two days healthy 7.3 pounds.

I just want to say Bronson hospital and their staff is definitely the best in the nation and I can understand why they have won past awards for excellence and outstanding care. But that is not even all that I was impressed about I had found the Hospital to be very clean bright and warm. So for that i thank all the staff and doctors.

Thank you Bronson for being one of the best places out there.

I was only 23 when diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer which traveled to 20 lymph nodes in my left arm pit. I then had chemo at two different places. I had my bilateral mastectomy in Chicago. I had radiation at Bronson in Battle Creek,MI. My Doctor is Dr. Mudge. Dr. Mudge is a great man! He makes you feel comfortable and explains every option you have, he gives you the pros and cons. His medical staff is one of the best! His nurses were always so nice to me. The nurses made me feel so comfortable and they always had smiles on their face. Everyone there is so happy and helpful. This facility is so professional, so dedicated, so friendly that you would think you were with family.

Thanks Dr. Mudge and his medical staff for helping to save my life. Thank you Bronson for being one of the best places out there.
