Didn’t approve of the dirtiness at St. Clare. In fact I don’t approve of dirtiness anywhere which is why in the suggestions box I put a note saying they need to hire a good housekeeping team because clearly the current one was not doing a good job. Complete mess.

My mother is a nurse so when I was young I never had to decide on a kind of hospital to pick. Didn’t have the luxury of being picky, rather. But now that I’m a grown ass man I got to pick and I’m glad I went with SSM St Clare even though it’s not too close to my house or work place. Came here to visit a friend who’d been diagnosed with cancer and let me tell you the service here is impeccable. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, the janitors are very friendly and efficient at their job, and the doctors are very sweet. Not just to the patient, even with family members. Their visiting hours are not outrageous, they don’t have weird rules about visitations and it’s very convenient in general.

Did not have an enjoyable er experience at all. Daughter was admitted and not one doctor came and checked up on her. One nurse came in 3 hours later with food and that was it. No updates, no compassion, nothing.

I’ve never had any issues with my heart *touch wood*. Until last week though. Sigh. It wasn’t a big deal just a slightly damaged heart muscle which I had no idea about btw. Called the hospital at 2 in the morning asking them if they had any available slots to see the er doctor for 2:30 am and they said come right in. I had slight chest pain that sort of radiated through my back, shoulders and neck. But it was not unbearable pain, just kind of pinching. When it came it would linger for a few seconds and then go away. So I figured it wasn’t that big a deal.

Reached at 2:27 am and the parking lot was relatively empty. This was a good sign. I walked inside and noticed only one other patient sitting at the waiting area. That was definitely a good sign too. Didn’t have to wait for more than 10 minutes before they called my name. The front desk receptionist asked me if I was good to walk or needed a wheelchair, what a sweetheart. As I went inside the doctor said I needed to get an EKG done ASAP because it had to do with the heart.

After that a hospital employee took me inside another room and until I waited for the test results they gave me some refreshments and turned on the TV in the room to keep me entertained. How cool is that? Then of course they needed me to get an X-ray done but I’ll tell you this, never at one point were they asking me to do something and pushing me out of the room, everything happened in such a smooth manner. And the employee, Michael took me to each of these rooms and whenever I needed to wait he would exit so as to prevent an awkward moment from arising. How thoughtful.

Didn’t have to wait for long before the cardiologist came into the room with a surgeon and was talking to me about the issue. Not much of an issue, he led with, which I thought was a good choice of words. Oftentimes it’s just the assurance you need from a doctor to feel better..rather than actually get cured. Want to thank everyone who helped me that night, you guys are the best. Recommend this hospital and the er department in particular to everybody.

The only hospital I would ever give birth to should I get pregnant again- here’s to hoping I don’t. But a great hospital. One for the books.. My daughter Aya was born here after much speculation on how she’d turn out she came out just perfect healthwise. The OBGYN here is amazing, nurse Allison was my favorite person to go to whenever I had an issue and in general this is the only hospital I would give a 5 star rating. It’s a big deal.

Compassionate and hospitable people that work at SSM St Clare Hospital.
Curious about how long it’s been in business because it looks brand new but you’ll have a good time- as good a time as one can have in a hospital. Honestly the rooms are like hotel rooms, super clean and always has a fresh scent.
Also very quiet, good for people who want to sleep.
Don’t know that the cafeteria is as great, didn’t really like the coffee but it’s not a deal breaker. Because everything else here is great.
