I am appalled at the lack of diversity in this hospital. Decent care, but the absence of other cultures (besides Caucasian) makes the environment feel unwelcome and uninviting.

Recently my son was born at Providence. I have nothing but positive things to say about the nursing staff. They were polite, caring, and compassionate in dealing with my wife. Having a baby especially our first was a joyful, but stressful time. I didn't enjoy the lactation consultants that kept coming by our room while we were in so called recovery. The were unprofessional and couldn't have been more rude towards my wife telling her if she couldn't breastfeed then she was failing our child. We were discharged on a Thursday with no real tips on how to get our son to latch, just if we didn't we were bad parents. The first night he wouldn't eat anything. We went to our pediatric doctor Friday morning concerned for his wellbeing. He has lost 18% of his birthweight. We got on a program as described by our doctor, and their lactation consultant, by his Monday morning check up he had gained the 18% back and more. He is now a healthy baby boy who continues to grow and thrive. There is good and bad with every place you could go. Overall it wasn't the end of the world, but they could do better.

My procedure went really well, my caregivers were excellent. Unfortunately, their admitting process enabled an error in my name...did not affect my treatment nor outcome, but a little irritating that they relied on 20 year old info, instead of updating it before my procedure.

My family became acquainted with Providence Hospital in 1970 when we moved to Alaska and my mom was sick 3 times that first year. They took care of her well then, and in all the years since as I and rest of my family have received services, I know of only 2 less than favorable care among probably hundreds of visits over 45 years. That's an excellent record!!!

Everyone has different experiences, good and bad. Most recently mine have been good. (Competition with three area hospitals has done wonders for every medical center in Anchorage and the Valley. You can choose your medical center, not end up with one.)

I loved CRC. The staff were nice and actually talked to you when you were down. The groups were informational. The structure is fantastic. And you don't stay there all day. Sometimes you walk outside to the hospital for dinner or around the grounds. These guys care about your child's health and mental stability! If your child is struggling, send them here. It's a place I call home.

I don't normally do this, however based on my recent experiences at Providence in Seward Alaska, I feel the need to do so. There is a doctor there at the clinic by the name of Jeanette Nienaber who is without a doubt the most sincerely helpful, genuinely personable, completely professional health care provider I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing anywhere ever period, and I for one am so tremendously grateful to have found her! She takes her time talking "to you' not down or "at you", she listens patiently, explains things clearly and completely, and has simply the most wonderful manner. If ever you need to address any health care issues in Seward Alaska, this is the provider you want to visit and trust! I personally feel blessed to have discovered her!

We had our daughter here, natural birth. Great nurses and very clean room. I'm not ok with some of the charges while at the hospital. They charged $69 for 2 ibuprofen! I brought my own and they didn't allow me to take my own. Lame!

I've had many. Some amazing. I'll speak of those first. The children's hospital cared for my son with a major brain injury. Their Subspecialty clinic is amazing. Their helpfulness when you (very scarily leave that controlled environment) transition home us more than helpful. Care coordinators and the ICU is amazing. The doctors; Goodwin, Clancy, Neuro Smith, endo; now Fenton, brain surgeon; Dr. Tolbert at the time was so amazing, working with Dr Rosen. There so many heroes in there. I could not have had my son in better hands. Because of their cleanliness my son had no infection. They worked with me and PT later OT & ST. I would never go anywhere else. When there's not hand sanitizer everywhere like there is at Providence I don't feel safe from the multitude of germs. I feel they care more about their patients. Migraine help in the past has been amazing in the ER. The past trip to the ER was not good. I could barely finish the question before the nurse or doctor cut me off after a car accident- a very bad one. My passenger received slightly better care the first time but not the second. I believe it was the Dr. But I might try Regional for ER next time. Long/short. Inpatient, please go there. They are amazing. ER: I'm not so sure anymore unless you'll be inpatient status.

I got to witness first hand the core values of Providence as I journeyed with my friend Tom, his sister, and friends as Tom was born into Eternal Life June 7 on 5 North. Thank you to all at Providence who were there with us easing our way.
