Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital in Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals

I've always had great experiences here (as far as hospitals go). ER wait time is nil; staff is kind and pleasant, except for that one ER doctor who really needs to brush up on his bedside manner; radiology appointments are quick in and out. They are NOT a surgical hospital, so if you do need surgical care, of course they will send you to SB. Other than that lack, we have always received excellent care. Sorry, Millimesa.

Have generally had good experiences with Cottage Hospital, though when there are glitches my strong sense is there's excellent cover up - one can hardly dare criticize Cottage. Sorry we've lost St. Francis - that phenomenon of selling hospitals and building condos is not uncommon.
