Deaconess is a joke they don't care about their employees which in turn causes them to mistreat and take it out on the patient.... Every nurse I worked with hated their job and could careless about actually treating the patient. Deaconess purposefully tries to swindle money out of the patients and will lie to them just to get them cornered into paying. Their management in a couple departments skim money. Overall they are unethical.

St Mary's almost killed me. I went in for severe abdominal pain and redness around my bellybutton. After pushing on it (causing me to scream and cry) they sent me home with some antibiotics and said I had a skin infection. Twelve hours later I was back in the er and rushed into emergency surgery for a ruptured hernia. sure they covered the bill after threatening a lawsuit but I would not recommend going there. They also used xray dye which I'm allergic to, so hives and emergency surgery that's what I got

Both hospitals have their problems, but I would stick to St.Mary's.

If you are a Medicaid patient, steer clear of Deaconess. The Family Residency Clinic is often one of the only places you can find a doctor. My warning is to keep looking. I have had things purposely falsified on my medical records in this clinic as well as extreme bad experiences at Deaconess Hospital and with other affiliate doctors. They have absolutely no understanding of the words "compassion" or "empathy". All that matters is money & if you don't have any your life is meaningless to them.

St. Mary's I will never go there again or send anybody there again. They about killed my mom. Told her to stop taking meds that her lung specialist had her on. Made her so sick we took her to Deaconess Gateway now she is getting better.

Stmarys. Deaconess is partly for profit. Physicians invest in and own 49% of Gateway. Should this be how healthcare is managed? Physician owned? Fishy...

Plus, Stmarys has MAGNET recognition which no matter how much they try Deaconess can't seem to get.
It is the Women's Hospital that is 50% owned by Deaconess and 50% owned by the OBGYN's with Womens Healthcare PC. Deaconess Gateway is the same as Deaconess off Mary Street which is part of DHS---Deaconess Health System.

No doctor will tell a patient to stop taking medication prescribe by a different Dr. IF they did it was for a good reason. I bet you're one of those nitpicky people who try to tell them how to do their job. Deaconess is nasty.

Deaconess it really depends on the Department. The cancer center and Stephanie the receptionist is not worth your time.

Exactly... they gained it AFTER the person commented they did not have the certification. So the original person who stated that was CORRECT about their facts. And no shit the Deaconess Health System is a non profit. Still they cannot pay their employees well, not just the nurses or doctors and most people are unhappy there. They will sure sue the fuck out of everyone to make sure they can keep building this nice buildings and additions to add smoke and mirrors to their shitty service. No matter how much you polish a piece of shit, it is still a piece of shit. Linda White in the news for how great a business woman she is with great expansion of Deaconess.... at the cost of employee moral, sub par services. I do not care how long she worked there and that she knows everyone's names. I bet she would not have lifted a finger to go to bat for a 25 year or more employee. Yep, great business women indeed. I want quality of services and not how many fucking building they build.... same shit bag doctors and unhappy employees working in them.

St. Mary's is better. Deaconess just got in trouble for hospital acquired infections. The quality is so much better at St. Mary's!
