My two year old daughter was admitted for an over night observation that turned into a week long visit but everyone on the Peds staff went out of their way to make her smile! Everyone treated her so well. She ended up having to have surgery and even te surgery staff treated her well.. Everyone treated her like she was the only patient in the hospital and made her feel safe and important which made for two very happy parents! I can't think of enough good things to say about EAMC! Best hospital experience we have ever had.
