What Our Patients Say
5-star Yelp review
I delivered my baby girl at Whittier Hospital on Sunday July 22nd, and
the nurses were truly wonderful to both myself, my husband and our new
baby. While in Labor and Delivery, Katerina took excellent care of me,
always making sure my ice was full and taking me to the restroom as often
as I needed. Once the baby came, Miss Doris in the nursery was so kind
and patient with us. My baby had a stomach issue and had to be taken to
the nursery for multiple tests and during this process Miss Doris kept
us informed and let us come visit her in the nursery when our daughter
was in between tests. She's really an amazing lady, and I think my
anxiety would have been through the roof if it wasn't for her. And
finally Melanie, my postpartum nurse... she was so kind and always positive.
She checked on me all the time, making sure we were comfortable. These
3 nurses really made my stay at Whittier Hospital as comfortable as possible,
and they are the reason for my 5 star review. Thank you so much for all
your kindnesses! - Erica G.
"I had the best experience in the maternity area. My plan was to
deliver in a birth center. Everything went the wrong way so we end it
up at the Whittier Hospital. When I got there everything was ready.
I had my midwife Simona Istrate delivered my baby but the rest of the
team was fantastic.
They followed every one of my birth preferences, and I was very specific.
Every one in the team was so human and empathic.
I'm 100% satisfied" - Ainhoa Zapata

"I received a phone call from my son at around 1500 saying that he
had cut his hand pretty bad and was heading to WHMC. I told him that I
would meet him in the ER. He had cut his had right between the thumb and
index finger on his left hand. Right in the middle of that web that we
have there. It was very deep and I knew that he was going to need stitches.
We were called to the back within 5 minutes of waiting, triaged and sent
to the minor room. A very nice PA named Brittany came in and took care
of him. She cleaned out the wound and put both a deep layer of sutures
and skin sutures in it. She explained everything to him before she did
it keeping him at ease the whole time. He was placed in a splint at the
end and sent home. Overall we had a great experience at this hospital.
I would recommend it to everyone that I know. Great job to everyone that
took real good care of him."

I wanted to express my thanks and appreciation to the staff below. ER RNs:
Kelly and Steve - Kelly was very helpful and caring. Steve was the most
compassionate and professional RN I have seen or worked with. Steve was
quick to act, whether it was for a pt or for a colleague. Even during
the change of shift, he made a point to ensure that I was comfortable
and my needs were met. RN on 2nd floor: Thien was the nurse assigned to
me. Like RN Steve, Thien was patient, professional and sincere. He made
his rounds on time, and also made sure that my questions and concerns
were answered promptly and accurately. Please tell each of them, thank
you for caring for me!!
