Go to Mt Auburn! I have spent too many hours at this hospital, all of which were great. The staff is always prepared, caring and well informed about our needs. No reading from charts and asking questions that make you feel like a number. EVERYONE knew why and what we needed. They asked great question and where prepared to help. The hospital feels like a community hospital. Easy parking, easy to navigate the floors and easy to drive too. Im so grateful for the staff and everyone there. I was told to go to MGH, I never got a single return call from MGH that didn't say "we can see you in 3 months (undertone... if your lucky)". I love Mt Auburn for everything it is, everything it did for my family; and the fact I know that we are in good hands... overtime with everyone there. Thank you from a worried momma... xoxox. M

Mt. Auburn Hospital has always been my go to hospital. It is small enough that you don't feel overwhelmed, unlike the Boston hospitals which are massive. I've never felt like I didn't get the care I needed and, when they felt they couldn't help me, they transferred me to Beth Isreal. I have spent a lot of time in Beth Isreal so I have something to compare it too. First, parking is inexpensive here. BI is so expensive and I felt guilty asking my family to come visit me because of the expense. The food at Mt. Auburn is really good, not like hospital food of years ago. It is a teaching hospital so you have lots of eyes on you if you are admitted. This is the same at any of the teaching hospitals. The nurses are attentive and overworked like any hospital but I never had a problem getting one when I needed attention. The rooms are cleaned every day. I happen to get lucky and had a private room. Yes emergency can be a nightmare of a wait but so is any other emergency room if they are busy. On a whole, this hospital does a good job.

I have had many experiences at Mount Auburn Hospital. I have been to their ER, walk-in clinic, and had a couple of outpatient surgeries there. Overall over the decades I have been very satisfied with the hospital and feel like I got top-notch treatment. In particular I would like to rave about the doctors at the walk-in clinic. I have gone to the walk-in clinic for pneumonia, bone injuries and an infection. The doctors are senior experienced physicians, not new residents (no offense). The doctors listen, are good diagnosticians, & provide care in a careful sensitive manner. This is highly unusual up in my prior experiences with many free standing walk in clinics or hospitals.

This place by far has THE BEST staff of any hospital I have EVER been to! I unfortunately had to "live" here for 2 plus weeks with my newborn who was in the NICU, and the nurses were just simply amazing. I mean, they went to levels beyond any expectations, between caring for my son and keeping me sane! The doctors were incredible and even the kitchen and janitorial staff went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure I was comfortable! I couldn't recommended this place more. I am so thankful for ALL of these people every single day!

Had my baby here in March 2016. Couldn't be happier with the labor and delivery department. I used the nursery every night during our stay and they were great. Always brought my son back to the room for nursing. Get the chocolate cake when you order lunch and dinner.

Wonderful midwives and nurses there. Gave birth to my son last week and couldn't be more grateful to the staff. Out of the 30+ staff I came in contact with (50 hour labor turned c-section)only 2 were less than spectacular. Overall great experience, didn't feel pressured to do things I didn't want to and they respected my birthing wishes. Love the midwives and nurses at Mt auburn
