Fort Madison Community Hospital is one of the BEST things that has happened to Lee County ever! It is run by a very warm and friendly staff who exude positivity and spread the positivity throughout the hospital. Their kindness, care, and concern for you make one feel at home the moment they arrive at the hospital. As far as I know, FMCH has one of the fastest check-in procedure. Every time I visit the hospital, I check-in and before even finding a place to sit, I am called back. They are also very efficient. Won’t hesitate to seek care and recommend it to my friends and family, and all others who are ready to listen to the wonderful things about this hospital

I was a patient of FMCH ER a few months back, and I have nothing but praise for this wonderful institution. I recommend this hospital. Everyone whom I encountered during my visit there was caring, professional, and friendly. They treated me as a human being. Lee County is fortunate that it has such an excellent medical care facility.

Why do we have a GP…to treat our illness and ailments which need treatment but are not emergency as such. However, FMCH does not understand that. For meeting a GP at FMCH, one had to book an appointment about five to 10 days before. If you have a sudden fever, they force you to go to either a walk-in clinic or an ED. Walk-in treats only one ailment. If you unfortunate enough to have fever and diarrhea, expect to be treated for only one ailment. ED is also no better. They won’t take your blood sample or run urine test or anything which can show the reason for your ailment.

The moot point is that FMCH system treats your symptoms and not the root cause of your symptoms. This way, you would be a regular visitor of FMCH, and they can mint loads of money from you.

My son had an unfortunate and freak accident last Saturday while going for a walk. He was hit by stone pellets which got embedded on his forehead. He was rushed to the ER. The staff took over his care very quickly, and within a matter of minutes, two nurses were pulling out the pellets and cleaning up the wound. A couple of hours into the accident, we were out of the hospital with my son’s head bandaged. The staff was supportive and very helpful. Good job
