GCH and Alpha Care staff are rude, condensending, and poorly trained. This hospital is a mickey mouse operation. Alpha Care is staffed by teenagers and rude staff. The Alpha Care area is run poorly and customer service at front desk is ran by your local teenage or college kids who could give two iola's about a patient in need of medical care. All they do is sit there on thier smart phones, internet and laugh-smoke and joke with one another. Is this a medical facility or a teenage gathering or FRAT party. The wait in ER is sooo long, wont be seen until your on death bed. Nurses in ER are run down, overworked and forgot why they got in the business to start with (HELP PEOPLE!). ER staff are so rude except the intake clerks, who apparently have a real true care for the job they have. Nurses act like they are on a high horse, try and give patients diagnosis when they are not even doctors. Patients are treated poorly and staff forgets customer servcie training and being empathetic to patients needs, desires, concerns and nerves. Worst hospital in North-East Kansas!

Staff need to be trained in customer service, take patients seriously and not treat everyone based on their bad experiences with bad patients. This hospital lacks professionalism and leadership apparently and should be restructured. Can not believe how poor this facility is ran in terms of professionalism, friendliness and patient care/treatment.

I have never had anything but great experiences with the entire staff at GCH, spanning 4 decades. You can never please a whiner, but I`m sure they tried. Next time, take your problems elsewhere. The other 99% of us have no gripe with our great hospital.

Corrected statement (for those of us with an education):

"Whatever. Sounds like a comment from a GCH employee. You're a joke, too."

Try "Remedial English" at the Learning Annex. LOL!

As a man of your vast wisdom who is now 62, I have just one question : Have you started collecting Social Security yet, or are you holding out until 66.5 or 70 ?

Well thanks FTW......i guess some people are just better than others. I actually am a vet with traumatic brain injury and spelling and grammer are not my strong points anymore. We have been treated by VA hospital better but when u need to go to ER who wants to drive to Topeka when you live here. Gch is a joke!

I agree, GCH is a joke. The staff there are horrible and that place is porrly maintained. The facility has dirty rooms and hospital staff including the ER are a bunch of angry birds!

It's sad when you go somewhere for help and leave feeling worse. The CEO's, borad commisioners and senior staff are in need of some serious revamping and training of the staff.

Customer service rating is a -1 at this place. News flash! 80% of junction city goes out of their way and would rather be seen at Mercy or Manhattan facility.

Too many cranky old employees or young kids operating a hospital. Dont forget to mention how they rip you off and charge up the ying yang on bills. Sad!

Ditto! Super joke for a medical facility. I hate and despise going here and wish they would do something about their crappy service. The ER is horrible and the Lab is a mess.

I pay alot for medical insurance and this is what I get. As for the idiot who said go somewhere else....well do we have many choices you old cranky nag! You must work for GCH or have some sort of interest in it.

This is only place some of us can go, so mind your BEEZWAX! Geez, people cant complain about something without catching flak. GCH is not perfect.

You non-spelling, grammatically-challenged whiners crack me up ! If you got an education and took care of your health, you wouldn`t have to take your whining asses there in the first place. It`s losers like you nut cases that are the problem, not the GCH staff. Get a life, or go out and earn a medical degree yourself. Caution : you`ll need half a brain first !

Looks like the Missouri person has multiple personalities going. First, they weren't sure who they were (Anonymous), then three others came out at the same time (Jimmy, Todd and susy...or is it Moe, Larry and Curly?) from the same location in Missouri. What we have here is one pissed off person that is having a conversation with himself to keep the pot stirred.

Spelling and grammar speak to the education level of the complainer and as such are legitimate points. Fair or not, socio-economic factors contribute to the entitlement beliefs held by many. People without true emergencies seek care in the ER frequently because they know they can't be turned away. This may result in long wait times because other patients require immediate care. If you frequent enough Hospitals to have a favorite then you probably lack a personal physician and are using them as free health care. Stop contributing to the slowing of the system and take some personal responsibility! It is sad the vocal minority have a forum such as this because almost everyone I know in Junction City,who has legitimately required care at GCH,has had a wonderful experience and is glad to have such a great facility in our small community.

you are a joke too......wow! Sounds like GCH employees got called out and are on the defense now. Truth must hurt. It has to be an ER employee writing all this cause they are making it about ones education after it is clear this person complaining has legit or valid gripe and darn good excuse if you ask me for having spelling issues....come on people, a VET with TBI and you say this stuff. Sad....let the person have their opinion or gripe.

Who died and made you god or Mr omighty educated person. Its idiots like you who treat people like garbage and belong at GCH.
