Quite a few people i know have had surgeries at Sierra Vista.Every single one of them tell me the same thing,it's a place where the doctors do everything they can to help you and get you home as soon as possible,but there is a BIG problem.The Nurses (Not all of them) can be very hard to deal with,some of them do not speak english well,they blame the patient first and themselves second and on top of all of this they can create a huge gap between what the doctor wants for you and what you really get.I would go to visit a friend or family member there (about 10 times in the last few years) that was sick or had surgery and would ask the nurses what was going on.The most common words that came out of their mouths were "We are not sure" and "I don't know" not very much help.The Hospital is either understaffed or simply needs to get better nurses and aids there.

My first child was born at this hospital and I feel that we received top notch care during the delivery process. The labor and delivery nurses were great. My child unexpectedly had respiratory problems and was rushed to the NICU. The NICU staff was amazing. They really understood how parents felt and what they were going through and were very sensitive to that. They allowed two people to see the baby at a time as long as one of the people was a parent. My only complaint about this hospital was the billing. It was terrible. They stopped me on my way out of the hospital with my baby who had been in the NICU for a week and told me that I needed to tell them how I intended to pay. I had never heard of such a thing. Then, they kept sending letters saying "We estimate you owe X number of dollars, please send your check today". They did not give an itemized statement and the estimated number was forever changing. I finally told them that I was not paying until I received an itemized statement and an actual bill. I finally ended up paying a couple of thousand dollars and then they wrote threatening to send me to collections. It turned out that they had credited a $1200 check of mine to the wrong account. To sum it up - the medical care is great, but the billing is a nightmare.

This huge hospital is located in the middle of San Luis Obispo. It is very easily accessible and the parking lot is very large. It is also very new which means it is very clean. The doctors here are among the best in the area. I would recommend delivering here is you are expecting.

Sierra Vista was where my daughter was born at the start of the year and the maternity ward performed everything wonderfully with a supportive and caring staff.
