I can't stress how bad this place is. Twice I've chosen to go all the way to Des Moines in a medical emergency because I wouldn't trust this hospital with a cat I didn't like. If my husband hadn't been actively advocating during my one stay I am certain I would be dead now because their staff all seem to be deaf to medical histories and completely untrained in patient handling protocols. DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU WANT TO LIVE.

I went there recently and it was amazing, I was in the pediatric floor (I'm 15) I had the most amazing nurse named Jessica the sweetest person I'd ever met! She made my stay a million times easier on me because I was so stressed. Thanks again Nurse Jess love you!

I can say from experience wit both being a patient at Mary Greeley and our son being there that the hospital leaves much to be desired. I was misdiagnosed in the er with a heart attack and the meds they gave me made me worse. Our son came in with an appendicitis and the er Doctor kept insisting he just needed to poop even though he had a large BM earlier that day. They ordered a CT then forgot about him. Over four hours later I asked the nurse why no CT then they scrambled to get him one. It was a miracle his appendix did not burst before the ct was done because he was rushed into surgery very quickly. We have friends whom the husband was misdiagnosed in the er and sent home. After seeing his family physician they re-tested him and discovered that he needed surgery as soon as possible and it was a miracle he had not bleed out because of the mistake. Please, pick a hospital in Des Moines. In my opinion your life would be in better hands there. The hospital spends millions on renovations but fires nurses and support staff when they think they can hire someone else with less experience for less money but it compromises the patient's care.

If you live in Ames and dont want to OR cant drive to Des Moines, there is no choice in the matter-this IS your hospital. All of my impressions of the hospital are based on this fact. It is also incredibly difficult to understand where Mary Greeley and McFarland clinic are different. The medical system in the U.S. and on a smaller scale in Ames is really lacking. I honestly got quicker and less out of pocket costs charged to me working overseas and paying "overpriced" international medical insurance fees. Having said all that, this is a criticism of the overall system more than about the people that work there. I've never had a problem with the medical or admin staff. In fact, I've had some helpful experiences there. But after some billing questions and out of this world charges, I now am very disheartened by the whole experience. In short, good enough medical and admin staff but questionable policies, pricing, etc.

I was born there in the 1960's -so of course 5 stars with my birth story. "Mom said the c-sec, done vertical then, was cut half the size of later delivery c-sec in another state of her 2nd delivery (yet small baby) She felt safe and well cared for. WOW for her first delivery, though-at Mary Greeley! ***** It was rare to have a c-sec then, being also, a gestational diabetes baby, weighing in at a whooping 10lbs 6 oz . Yet the skill level was that high back in 1960's!!! Baby was delivered safely, w half the incision and great healing time. Hospital was far advanced in comparison to most for that time. My Mother never forgot such excellent care and skill level -for her "retro 60's" special delivery. Mary Greeley has continued that same level of excellence with babies past :),present ,and assuredly the future! Thanks! From that same 10+lb newborn( me), now a healthy adult, parent & new grandparent, myself.*(posted under former married name. My folks were married college students, at Iowa State and so young and grateful, smile,for the safe delivery of their 1st born)
