I had my back surgery yesterday morning. Everyone from the start was very nice and cared about my comfort. They also took their time in explaining everything to me before I went into the OR.

Once in my room the nursing staff have been so nice and willing to help me be more comfortable and also to do my walking...Thank you Townsen Memorial Hospital. 💞

I just want to say they took very good care of my hubby during his back surgery. Literally from Docs to Nurses to dietary staff and everyone was great!!! Kind, compassionate and attentive. They clearly know what they doing and do it well!!!! Would highly recommend. It didn’t feel like a hospital it felt like family taking care of both of us💕💕💕💕💕

Kendall Swan

Can't say enough about their bedside manner! I have a lot of anxiety and sensory issues and everyone was so kind and fast! I was in and out from my procedure in the time it takes just to get discharged in some other hospitals. 10/10. My husband says the hospital food is very good for hospital food!

Patrick Masterson

I highly recommend the staff at Towsen Hospital & ER. They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and supported during my spinal cord stimulator implant surgery.

They formed an incredible team that provided me with the best possible care. I am eternally grateful for their dedication and compassion.

If you need medical care, I wholeheartedly recommend Towsen Hospital & ER. The staff here are angels in scrubs.

I had back surgery June 1st and the staff could not have been any better!! They were all amazing and treated me with upmost respect! I have a bad shoulder so they listened to my needs and concerns with that and was very helpful! I have no problem going back there! Thank you TMH. Also very clean and also has a little cafe for whoever is waiting on the waiting area.

I had a spinal fusion done at Townsend Memorial. I can not say enough good things about the care I received from the staff. They worked together as a team and made sure I was comfortable and cared for. I was in a lot of pain after surgery and one of the nurses stayed with me...until my medication started working. They also did a great job keeping my family informed of my progress. I can honestly say this was one of the best hospital experiences I’ve had.

I had surgery here a couple of days ago and I am grateful for the staff here! Mari, Nancy, Lecha, LaTarshia, EJ and Iris. These women took care of me like I’m family. They were patient, so kind and understanding. They genuinely care about their patients. I can’t say enough about them! I pray God’s favor and continued blessings over each of them. Thank you Ladies! I love you all to life!!!!
