We have a lot of hospitals in Connecticut. Here are the ones I checked, because I'm familiar with their names (I only actually use two of them but Connecticut is a very small state and these are all within a 30-minute drive of each other):
Bristol, Middlesex, Griffin, and Milford: 4 out of 5 stars.
Midstate, Central, St. Mary's, and Yale: 3 out of 5 stars.

Opinions based on hearsay and no understanding of the facts are permitted in a free society. Posts like this do not ,however, serve any useful purpose. Facts , not hearsay, exaggeration, and ignorance are what is needed to improve any less than optimum situation. If one wishes to make such harmful statements , it might be useful to do some real research, first.

I have been in TVRH and will not go back. I just got out of Leesburgh Regional after 6 days and will go there again if needed.

Are you saying you are not moving? If you are bring one of them here with you. You can go to Ocala to Ocala regional, Munroe Regional or to Taveres to Watermann, Orlando has many fine hospitals also. It is service vs distance. You make the choice.

I believe that people with current experience with these hospitals should be considered valid. Otherwise people who just quote others at face value do not allow for any improvement made.

First, It is my understanding that the Developer has no control over the medical care anymore, an outside entity controls it. Second, I agree with the previous poster who pointed out their idea of today's healthcare. I just got out of Leesburg and felt it was more than adequate. The medical care in many cities is changing and it is for the better. In order to get the best care make sure you have a health care advocate seeing over your care.

You will hear complaints from cities no matter where you live AND you will hear applause as well for the care given. It's all a matter of perspective and experience. I for one, am grateful for TVRH and the fact we do NOT have to travel a long distance. I've been in the ER multiple times and have had two surgeries plus several hospital stays there. The care each time was very good! Just know that everyone should either be their own self advocate or have someone who can do it for them.

I have had a major surgery there along with 8 weeks of PT fantastic service. Most recent visit for a stent again no problems. About a month ago made Granddaughter was brought in via Ambulance right into the ER worked on immediately, they stabilized her , called Shands in Ocala and an Ambulance to transport there. The quick action of the Ambulance crew at the scene and the ER saved her life. Yea IF your going there on your own with a unknown ailment or a don't feel well you have 2 choices. 1 pick a different Hospital or 2 be prepared to wait quite some time for treatment. There are other choices near by as everyone has said. To keep bringing up how bad, slow and inadequate this Hospital is serves no purpose. You have a choice of neighboring Hospitals and ERs to go to, nobody forces you to use the Villages Hospital. If you do choose TV then you've been forewarned enough times for sure.

Your reply to this post is, IMHO, right on target. My husband and I have both had major surgeries at TV and have had excellent results. BUT, we don't do it alone .... we have a primary care doctor who works with (in our opinion) the best specialists in the area; therefore, our treatment and care has always been above and beyond what we expected.

I am angered by people who post that they have heard from a friend that they know about someone who was almost killed in the hospital and the doctor who is married to a nurse etc. etc. etc. If you are going to say something bad about the hospital and the treatment then please give people actual information, not hearsay, so that people can make an educated choice about whether to use this hospital or go elsewhere.

It is time we had a post from the people who are pleased with the care they have received from our hospital.
