This, by far, is the best hospital in the area. Even before I lived in Shelby, I would travel (if emergency allowed) here to be seen rather than any other in the area. The staff here is always friendly and helpful. I've had both my children seen in this hospital on different occasions and have never had a problem. When my son busted his nose, we were afraid he needed stitches. The doctor was so nice and explained everything so that we could make an informed decision on stitches or a butterfly bandage (he was only 3 and stitches would of been very tramatic). My son was crying and very scared and the doctor approached this with such a caring heart! The same mannerism was used when my daughter was seen here at the age of 4. From the receptionist to the nurses to the doctors...they truely show patience and love to children!
