camden area hospitals?  
hi all. i'm changing doctors, and i'm just wondering if it's better to get a doc that would send me to our lady of lourdes, kennedy memorial, university medical center, virtua memorial in burlington, virtua west jersey in camden, marlton or vorhees?

our lady of lourdes seems like it'd be the most convenient, cause of the PATCO stop right there, but i'm not religious. in fact i get pretty darn uncomfortable wherever religion is involved.

another possible bump would be their accomodations to special diets. i'm vegan, and i get pretty sick if i ingest hidden animal products, and they just might not know that what they're serving might not be vegan. :-/

so yeah, if you have any input even if it doesn't answer my special diet question, please let me know. all information is good information.

I have no idea about special diet stuff, but I've had great experience with Virtua in Mount Holly.

Aside from that - DO NOT pick Kennedy, it's nickname among the EMT's in town is "Kill Em' Kennedy" so yah.....try to avoid them if you can!

I've had experience with all of them. Personally with Kennedy and Our Lady, and family/friends with Virtua West Jersey, Cooper, etc.

I can't speak for special diets, simply don't know. But I would rate quality and such as Our Lady #1, Virtua a very close #2... Cooper a distant #3 and Kennedy by far the worst one.
