After an emergency visit to the Emergency Department, I received a bill that was 108% higher for the exact same billing codes compared to an E.D. visit three months prior at a different, nearby hospital. When I called Banner's billing office, I spoke to a representative whose initials are G.M.L. I asked her why their prices are so much higher than fair market value for the area. She replied by saying that it was "my decision" to go to Banner Desert. I informed her that because of my location and physical symptoms during the emergency, I had no choice but to go to there. During the visit, the E.D. physician said that I had about 10 minutes before I would have been in a coma. She replied again that it was my decision to go to Banner Desert instead of the other hospital. When I told her that that hospital was more than 25 minutes away, she again repeated that it was my decision. I asked her to clarify that she thought it was a "choice" that I either die or go to Banner Desert, and she said "yes." I couldn??t believe what I had heard, that someone (let alone a hospital employee) would tell me point blank that they couldn't care less whether I had lived or died.

On April 20, 2011 my long awaited child was born at Banner Desert Hospital. The care overall was average but the night nurse after delivery was a hateful and narcissistic you know what. She argued with my husband over something petty and was rude to visitors and friends. Reminded me of Nurse Ratched from "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". This should have been a happy time for all but this nurse really put a damper on what should have been a joyous occasion for all. Do yourself a favor. If you have a choice go to another hospital. This nurse was a very sour apple.

This is the worst hospital for kids. My daughter was given the wrong medication that made her have a brain hemorrhage!! Please ask questions regarding your children's care at this hospital. Another true story is my friend??s son had an infection in his leg and the doctor's sent him home telling his parents it was just a fever and he will be okay. He nearly lost his leg!! Go to the phoenix children's hospital!

I'd just like to extend a Deep Warm Aloha & Mahalo to the staff and doctors of Banner Desert Medical and Ironwood Cancer Research for there effortless thinking and Team Efforts in all they did thursday through saturday...the hospitality could've have been better, but no complaints from me and despite all the previous nonsense i have read, there is a special time in one's life where one must believe in the people whom provides the service...with that said i am truly blessed and grateful for them! Even the (5) security guards and (3) police officers on duty sunday morning! LOL

Much Love to YOU All...Love Kokoro (Coach Kai)

I had my daughter at Banner Desert and have returned on many occasions for various things. The doctors and staff have always been very nice, patient and caring.

Banner Children's Hospital has been around for less than ten years, and has grown with the rapidly growing East Valley communities.
Many excellent pediatric specialist physicians, nurses and other people who love and care for kids have come to Banner Children's from around the country to build up what this community needs: a strong and highly competent alternative to the downtown children's hospital. They're also building a brand new children's hospital building at Dobson and the U.S. 60 that will provide a new, exceptional place for children and their parents to receive many types of specialized care in a caring environment.

I have delivered all three of my children at Desert Sam and have had pretty great experiences. The entire staff from nurses to the baby photographer were extremely nice. I love the fact that they can talk and laugh with you, it sure makes a hurtful time more tolerable! The only change I would make is to adjust the rooms to accommodate families. My poor husband has tried to sleep on those awful chairs and with very little space. Other than that, the baby and I were well cared for!

PROS: Friendly staff
CONS: little rooms are not family friendly

We had such an awesome experience when we delivered at Desert Sam. From the time we arrived to the day we left, I have nothing but glowing remarks for the staff. When we went there was quite a wait; however, the nurse came out to sit down with us and let us know they are working on getting a room. She also took vitals and let us know they would page as soon as room became available. When we did get a room, it was huge and very comfy. The nurses on staff were wonderful, supportive and actually listened to what we wanted. After delivery, the exceptional service remained. We were fed right away, checked on often, and they even had a massage therapist available for massages. The only con was that the room was small and the chair was not very comfortable, but I didn't mind because everything else was so wonderful.

PROS: Exceptional Service. A Plus, helpful, homey!
CONS: small room
