I had been in the hospital for about 1 1/2 month due to having a complication of covid. I had to be intubated at another hospital and honestly wasn't expected to make it. I was scared, apprehensive and didn't have the best care (not from the drs) but from the staff. As I was almost giving up. A gentleman came in my room and asked if I was willing to be transferred to a specialty hospital. As I was almost giving up and wanted to get out of that hospital I agreed. About an hour later Johnny the liason for select specialty hospital miami came in and spoke to my husband and I. He was an angel that was send to save me. He didn't leave until 9pm until all my tests were done and paperwork and at 1qm I was transferred. As I arrived there I was apprehensive and a little scared due ro my prior experience. But I was so wrong. I was treated with dignity, care, compassion and love. I have never experienced this at a hospital. It was the first night in weeks that I was able to sleep. The RNs, (miguel, lavoy Barbara, kreffe) and others I don't remember their name cnas Respiratory techs, the ot and pt (chinitos) and the drs (dr. M ojeda, Ms white, dr. Shea. And my lung specialist) I couldn't ask for better treatment. No waiting on a call light, no complaining cause you needed help of any kind, you asked for something and they will go out of their way to provide it. I'm so happy they found me and I had the opportunity to experience this kind of treatment. This is how a facility should be run.Thank you after 3 weeks I'm home.
the care and attention is exceptional
I am admitted right now at select specialty hospital. All i can say is everything is excellent. The support staff, assistants, therapist, nurses and doctors are all excellent.If your patient is given a chance to choose this hospital. I can guarantee you will not be disapointed
Great Staff. I am a front liner as i work in the Emergency Room and became critically ill after contracting Covid-19. I was intubated in July 2020 and I arrived at Select Miami on September 3rd and it was the best decision we could have made. The Staff was very caring and compassionate. They helped me to get off the ventilator after 5 long months and get me back on my feet walking. The Physical Therapy Dept is extraordinary. They were very supportive and showed a level a professionalism I had never seen in my 31 years of being in the Medical field. I highly recommend Select Miami for all your rehab needs.
The nursing staff is caring , compassionate and highly skilled . The doctors are very professional and are always at the ready to answer any and all questions. The facility has the latest equipment and technology. Select affords our family the peace of mind that our loved one is being cared for by a top of the line medical team who really cares for their patients. I highly recommend Select Miami .
This facility is nice and the staff are all polite. Answers any questions we have and clean. They take good care of my dad who is there and have no issues at all.
I just wanted to thank the staff at Select Specialty Hospital Miami for taking such great care of my aunt when she was very ill. I could tell that the staff worked very well as a team and ensured that she received high quality care. I also appreciate to have the opportunity to see my aunt via facetime since i live here in Germany. Thank you again for being so compassionate!
Communication with my family and friends is surely significant to me. There was a time when I was busy with summer assignments, not able to have the chance to visit my grandmother at the hospital. I am filled with joy when I found out that this hospital allows me to facetime/video call my lovely grandma. This hospital has excellent staff members as well, who each has a golden heart.
EXCELLENT IN EVERY POSSIBLE WAY!My mother got transferred from another local hospital in where we had a horrific experience, she was on the ventilator, unconscious, had 4 tubes in her body, had really bad bed soars, and very critically ill due to COVID. We, as a family were desperate. When she was accepted at Select Specialty Hospital we did our due diligence, we requested a list of the doctors associated with this hospital that the insurance covered and we chose Dr. Manuel Ojeda and his team (Dr. Vaca and Ms. White) as a primary doctor and Dr. Ignacio Sendan. This new team of doctors were very Knowledgeable and diligent and we started seeing progress since day one. The staff is extremely hard working, KIND and HUMAN. Here wounds were cured within days, and the whole 2 months she was there she did not get any new wound as the team of nurses and CNA were so clean and precise on moving her every 2 hours, and my mother was spotless clean the whole time she was there.The Physical Therapy department is outstanding, my mother felt well taken care of and loved.The hospital was very clean, every single day, I even saw once how a supervisor was going on every room with a neon light looking for hidden marks she personally left with a special invisible gel all over the rooms. My mother recovered thank God she is now in a Rehab facility and I am forever grateful
This is the best place we've found yet for my father. We had a poor experience at Select Specialty in Lake Worth and he was deteriorating mentally and physically. This is the same company but it's nothing like the other facility. They have really high standards here! Also, almost all the nurses are Latin and seem much more compassionate than up in Palm Beach County.We moved my father to the Miami (not Miami Lakes) location as a referral from someone who spoke highly of the facility. After months of being on a feeding tube, they had him eating normal foods the first Monday the speech therapist saw him! He's made great strides since then and is gaining weight and his mental situation is improving. The majority of the staff is really compassionate.Ms. White is incredible, Iris the speech is the reason he's back eating/improving and Ivette one of his nurses is awesome. There are more but I've forgotten some names.PS: The visiting hours are 2-6PM and the staff isn't rude about kicking you out etc...Tips:- Get a room with the bed facing towards the window so your loved one might get to see outside well.- Pick this location over Miami Lakes. This one's doctor is linked to Mt. Sinai which is a huge advantage.- There is a parking garage under the building if you don't park on the street.- It's freezing inside so be sure bring a jacket/sweater.- Each room's AC unit can be adjusted by staff which can make the room a little warmer. It'll still be cold due to the hallway but that might help your loved one.- With permission you can set up a Facebook portal which can be used as a video conferencing platform to be able to see them through calling.Cons:- The TV channels are terrible. Couldn't watch the football game with my dad even. No CNN/NBC/ESPN. At minimum they should hook up some Smart TVs with Internet based cable. Lots of options now.- Would be nice if they decorated the rooms/painted them different colors etc... Some things like that would help the mental state of people a lot instead of all the rooms looking so much like a hospital... Plants/Flowers/Nice paint... I think it helps..
This place was a horror story. The place is old, incapable of caring for people that cannot help themselves, and is extremely unhygienic.Place had no running water when arrived.Do not come here. Stay in the hospital, go home, or go to a nice nursing home.Since he had an infection and a big wound on his back we were sure he would not make it far there. Had to remove my dad against medical advice since they refused to remove him. As soon as they caught whiff we were doing this, they stopped everything including checking his sugar levels and any absolutely necessary heart medicine.No vengan aquí, es un desastre el lugar. Quédense en el hospital común o vallan a casa.
Lograr que una institución funcione a cabalidad sólo es posible si se cuenta con trabajadores competentes y que realicen su trabajo con disciplina, profesionalidad y amor.Este es el caso de Select Hospital . Todos los servicios alcanzan para mí alta calificación desde el personal médico y paramedico hasta los que ejecutan otras labores.Realmente la experiencia vivida como paciente de este centro también está contribuyendo a mi recuperación.Por ello quiero, a través de estas simples líneas dejar constancia y , agradecimiento...no puedo mencionarlos a todos ,pero si, en especial al Dr Ojeda, la Dra White, las enfermeras Odalis.,Ileana, Bárbara, Doris y Osmani .Las asistentes, Juliet, Juana, Olga y Sara. Los terapistas Alicia y Aliocha.Nancy de respiratorio.En fin,todos.Los felicito por brindar un servicio de Excelencia!!!GRACIAS MILES!!!
Select in Miami Gardens is AMAZING!! Wonderful, caring therapists Chantal, Alex and Serene, they became family to us. Carmen and Marisa the Registered Dieticians went out of their way to find special food for my brother after he had a stroke. Highly recommend!
This is a good hospital to take care for the elderly the nurses are very helpful and the therapist .... but i must say the food menu for the patients must improve please do something about your menu for patients Thank you :)
I am writing this because I want to express my sincere appreciation and was very pleased with my experience with Select Specialty Hospital Miami as a family member. I can be a hard critic of hospital care places and the staff employed by them since i myself work in the medical field. This time is my first time to write a review i can tell that this hospital was a world away from previous experiences elsewhere. It was good to be treated with professionalism and caring medical staff. When I say the doctors and all the other employees of this hospital made me and my whole family feel that my mother in safe hands and made it as comfortable as they possibly could. This was the best team of medical staff, ( doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dietician, respiratory and rehab therapists), administration and case managers were very supportive of all family decisions and you can just believe they are the best. I am truly grateful and I appreciated all the willingness to answer questions, provided daily updates, get the problems resolved and treated my mother with respect, compassionate and tender loving care. Because they really do care. Thank you so much for providing such wonderful service and for providing with an exceptional experience.
We are impressed with the high level of care in Select Specialty Hospital. First of all the team of Doctors that we chose were incredible, Dr. Manuel Ojeda and Dr. Ignacio Sendan were excellent and were very diligent and knowledgeable and were able to successfully remove my mother off the ventilator. The team of nurses and CNA were outstanding!! They all were very kind and HUMAN! They actually CARED and my mother was treated with dignity and top level of care since day one, even when my mother was not conscientious . The team of Physical Rehab was outstanding also. I never seen a hospital so neat and spotless clean! I saw one day a supervisor coming with a neon light checking for spots that she left (with invisible cream) on each room to see if the cleaning personnel were cleaning well every single spot My mom was transferred from another hospital were She was left in a bed with severe bed ulcers. Select Specialty Hospital took care of the wounds and cured them Within days and my mother never got another wound again for the 2 months she was there. They also allowed me to have a Facebook Portal in the room which was crucial for us in order to communicate and be connected w my mother all day. Im very grateful with each and everyone in this hospital. God Bless them all.
Great Care, outstanding Professionalism. Highly Skilled Professionals. The Staff is very compassionate and really care for their Patients.
I can compare it to Kindred Hospital in coral gables, and this is why I recommend this hospital. You have been worn of kindred hospital.
The USA or the worldwide health system is messed up . But compared to other facilities, I had a good experience with this center. At least the patients have a beautiful view and can see the beautiful sky of Miami. I had a terrible experience in Kindred LTACH in coral gables. THx Select Specialty LTACH for doing the best by the ACHA rules and regulations.
