Today was one of our favorite days! It was the last day of the "Your Healthy Heart" program, an annual week-long heart education program hosted by St. Mary's and Kansas City Cardiology. This year we had 75 5th graders from William Bryant Elementary school join us for a interactive day of heart education.

HUGE THANK YOU to the many volunteers who helped with everything from education to leading groups around the hospital!

For those who missed it, our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael Liston, made it in Ingram's Top Doc's list this year. He was just a little suprised 😉 Congrats, Dr. Liston and thank you for all you do!

In addition to rehab, there is some very important pre-operative therapy, AKA pre-hab, the patient can do to help them recover after their joint replacement surgery.

Took my SO in for severe stomach pain and vomiting. After 3 hours, several medications, and a CT scan, he is no better than he was and we still have no answers. He asked for a second bag of fluids and... was denied. They just told us to follow up with our PCP if not better in a few days. I have 2 stars, because the staff was friendly, but this man is in extreme pain. Very disappointed! See More

I went through their ER 3yrs ago with sister and it was very painful one! Went this Friday night and only reason we did I couldn't breathe I have pneumonia and my sat was below 80. They have good peop...le but wow! I got a room that held a guy over night for suicide watch and found later that the room wasn't cleaned . Left with 15 pounds of water weight in two days, and so many other things like rude staff would take up too much time on them. Not a place for the sick to go! See More

I dont even want to give a 1 star, my grandmother is in there now. Had pins put in hip. Cna was very rough with my gma and she didnt even say sorry and just gave us looks like she dont give a sh*t..... Med tech very sour look on face, not a hi or kiss my a** or anything. Didnt even tell my gma or us what shes doing, we had to ask and gave her diabetic shot without even telling her this might sting. My gma is 7 days in without a BM and all they want to do is give her meds and no enema. And the therapist couldnt see my gma the other day and she was the last one but it was more important for her to end her shift, REALLY!? Couldnt take 10-15min more to try. This hospital is nothing like it use to be. If anything happens to my gma all hell will break loose and i will make sure this place is shut down!!! See More

I came in after a chiropractor visit and was feeling good from the adjustment. They were quick to get meds in me and get Ct scan. Although I went home feeling good the next morning I was beat red naus...eated and couldn't breathe. I came back and they found something in my blood work for my lungs being slightly elevated and my white blood cells very high. I ask to be admitted for further testing but instead got sent home. Still don't feel well and keep getting red from the chest up. Also even though I told the nurse my arm hurt where the iv was I was ignored. Come to find out my vein was blown out. The only answers I got was to go see my pcp. So I am going there today to pay 35.00 for absolutely nothing he can do for me. See More

My review is referring to a ER visit, from walk in to walk out I was very pleased. I appreciate your staff greatly for taking care of me. Everyone I encountered from Nursing staff, Physici...ans, Lab and Radiology were compassionate and tactful. Thank you for doing what you do! See More

My mom was taken here through the emergency room yesterday. She has been under their "care" for over 24 hrs now and they still havent even checked her vitals. Absolutely ridiculous.

We were there yesterday, our 23 yr old son heart had stopped around 3 am in morning . Er got him stable and admitted him. Cardiologist came in around 4pm . Started asking questions, then said he hasn'...t even looked at his chart yet. Wtf.seriously...... So he leaves room a hour later comes back and says he can eat , but needs a cta test done. And tells him he can eat and drink...(Really) Did this Dr. Just come off the street. So nurse came in and verified no he couldn't eat.... would have rather had the smart nurse as the dr...

I usually go to NKCH for my ER needs because they are aware of my history, however that has caused me to become used to extremely rude staff and doctors that you can tell don't care in the least to ge...t you to feeling better. St. Mary's is only 3 minutes away from my home, though, so this past week I needed somewhere closer. I was so surprised by the incredible bedside manner and the way the doctors sat down and took the time to explain everything to you. Not once did I feel like I was a bother for just being there and breathing. I was sent home with some options and told to return if the pain worsened, which it did. When I returned, the doctor started out at a loss for what was wrong with me bc is was not my appendix like originally thought, but told they would figure it out and I was admitted for observation and the doctor decided to run a test to check my gallbladder function. Sure enough, it came back to barely functioning and I underwent surgery where I found out that it was a lot more worse off than originally believed. I know if I would had gone to NKC I would have been sent home with no answers and no one that even cared. The staff from the nurses, doctors, surgeons, to the techs, office staff, custodians, and cafeteria staff... Everyone was friendly and appeared to mean it when they told you to "feel better." Hospitals are already not fun places. Thank you to the amazing staff here for now being the only place I will go. And one of my nurses, Jamie, on the 3rd floor, was the best hands down!! My fiance even bought them cupcakes and cookies for being so much better than what we were used to! (Sorry for the novel also) See More

Everyone is really nice and friendly. My only complaint is that they have a cafeteria that closes at 4pm on weekdays, then is closed all weekend. So if you go out to spend time with family, then be ...sure to bring in all you need to eat, as the hospital doesn't seem to want to provide an easy means for food for visitors. I would give it 5 stars if I didn't have to drive and leave family in order to get a decent meal. The care for my father is top notch. Kudos to the staff. See More

I used the ER for the first time ever last night and I was pretty impressed. I didn't have to wait in waiting room but for a few mins, only had to wait about 15mins for dr once in a room, he ordered a... cat scan and I though ah man I'm gonna be here for hours but to my complete surprise the cat scan tech came 2mins after Dr left room. After I was done with that it only took dr a few mins to come back in. They made sure I was comfortable and had the pain meds I needed and everyone was very friendly. I'll defiantly return See More

I love St. Mary's HOSPITAL! Everyone was so nice, I had to go in to have my ribs x rayed because my doctor's office doesn't have an x ray machine. Went to Urgent Care 1st, they said it would be 3 hou...rs before they could see me!!!! Drove to St. Mary's, I was in and out in within an hour and a half! Staff was AWESOME! See More

I had to have my appendix out on Halloween. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. I didn't get my cat scan technicians nurse's name but she was super friendly and kept me updated! Dr. Shaw did my s...urgery and he did great. He even called me at home a day later to check on me. All of my pre-op nurses were great as well as in the room. Thanks Jeri, Michele and Olivia! Even Dr. Thompson who did my anesthesia did a great job of explaining everything to me. I would highly recommend this hospital and their wonderful staff. By far the best experience I have had.

The nurses took 1.5 hours to give him a cough drop. And only came in to check on him only when needed. We only saw 2 nurses to check and see if he needed anything in almost 6 hours. No bedside manner ...either. We did have 1 or 2 doctors that were good, within the 6 that we had See More

For me my moms stay was good, but had trouble getting answers several times. Regarding mom's medications. We had to ask several times and never got an answer before we had to end our visit with my m...om. Be prepared to hunt someone down or go down to the front desk. That gets people's attention...believe me.
Other than that we are pretty happy with the staff and all.

Big shout out to these ladies and happy PeriAnesthesia Nurses Week!!

When you think about a surgery team, does the nurse monitoring the unconscious patient after surgery come to mind?

Patients can wake up with extreme confusion, severe pain, breathing problems, agitation and other adverse reactions to anesthesia. These ladies are on the front line of those situations here at St. Mary's and we can't express how much they mean to our patients and team. Thank you so much for ...all you do!!
