About: Box Hill Hospital

(as the patient),

After accidentally breathing in a foreign body, I was sent to Box Hill Hospital and ended up having a bronchoscopy.

Unlike any other hospital experiences, I was surrounded by care and respect.

The chatty porter who took me for my CT scan, the kind and apologetic night nurse and the specialist doctors on the ward, the theatre team nurses, anaesthetist and crew were fantastic. Even the surgeon was interactive. 

Most of all the awesome nurses on Ward 2 deserve thanks from my family and myself. Based on my experience, if you have to go to hospital, make it Box Hill Hospital - Eastern Health.

Dear delphinuswr39

Thank you so much for providing your feedback on your recent experience at Box Hill Hospital. No-one wants to spend time in hospital so it was lovely to receive your feedback about how the staff across many services made a real difference to your experience.

It will give me great pleasure to provide your feedback to both the staff and their managers and I'm sure this will make a real difference to all.

I hope you've recovered and returned to full health and many thanks for your endorsement of Box Hill Hospital and Eastern Health!
