Patient Testimonials

I would like to take this opportunity to thank your staff for the magnificent care you provided to my mother in the last days of her life. My family greatly appreciates the kindness and professionalism provided by your staff. The kindness and attentiveness shown to my mother in the final days of her life was heartwarming. I do not believe any medical staff I have ever worked with have provided a higher standard of care than what she received at Monroe County Hospital. The help was not just extended to my mother, but also my father. The nursing staff did not just take are of his medical needs, they supported him in his spiritual and emotional needs also. Almost all the staff made a point to offer their sympathy on the day of my mother’s passing. A number of them stopped by to hold him and actually cry with him. It is not possible for my family to completely express in mere words our appreciation to your staff. They were amazing.


To the Administrative Team: I just wanted to let you know that your staff took excellent care of me during my recent stay at your facility.I was always treated with patience and kindness from everyone who participated in my care. I am very appreciative.

We have been meeting with Dr. Church every month for the past year and we absolutely love his nurse. Sharla is always friendly and helpful and fun and professional in every way and every time we are here! She remembers us like we just saw her yesterday! She is the best and top-notch! A+ Thank You!

We were so fortunate to have had Dr. Curiel and Jenn in the ER. My family and I would like to thank Dr. Curiel, Jenn and everyone at the Monroe County Hospital. We are very grateful for everything they did to help me and Addison. They did a wonderful job and need to be recognized for all of their work.


It was just 2 years ago that I was transferred to MCH from Des Moines to recover from a serious illness. Because I was confined for an extended period of time, I got acquainted with the nurses and the ancillary department’s staff.


Thank you for this high standard, making the individual feel they are the most important!


I can attest to the high standard of care and I have never forgotten it.


Best wishes to you and all employees as you care challenged with the changes in health care as well as always keeping your patients first priority.


Congratulations to your and all employees of Monroe County Hospital in being selected as one of the top hospitals in the USA! What an achievement!


I am writing to express my heartfelt thanks to all the nurses and staff who cared for my mother over the past three years. Living far away it was a comfort to me to know she was close to your gentle hands and caring voices. I have thought of all of you often since I was there for the week preceding her death. You brought joy and comfort to her, even in her final days. You all are heroes to me.


What can I say, this place is one of the best. The entire staff has been just wonderful to us, I am here to tell you bigger is not better. Your nursing staff is excellent. The last hospital stay my mother made was her last, she knew it and so did I and I think everyone did. All I wanted was for her to be comfortable. Doctors and nursing staff did just that. My mother died peacefully and comfortable until the end. If you ever need someone to brag on this hospital and staff, I am your man.
