My father had emergency open heart surgery here. I live on the other side of the country. The hospital staff was phenomenal about helping me stay in touch with my family during my father's stay. My father reports that the staff and facility are the reason he survived his medical crisis. He can't say enough good things about their professionalism, expertise and care.

I had laparoscopic Roux-En-Y surgery lately at St. Mary's. The entire staff of 7W, were great! Whenever a staff person came in, they always asked if they could do anything else for me. My only bad spot was in pre-op. When I spoke to the nurse the day before surgery, I asked to speak with a Lutheran pastor for prayer prior to surgery. I was assured that that could occur. However, the next day, when I asked to speak with the pastor, I was told,"We are too busy for that". Needless to say, I went to surgery upset and afraid. I would ask the pre-op folks to realize people's needs could be met in five minutes.

I had major surgery at St-Mary's and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about it. The Surgeons, the Nurses, the Care Givers, right down to the Maintenance staff were absolutely amazing... I would recommend this facility in a heartbeat. Thank you!

If I could have given zero stars, I would have. I got wrong information about my insurance coverage from them, and then they blamed my insurance company. (My insurance company gave me the date their policy went into effect, and it was not recent at all). I ended up not having a procedure that was scheduled, because they canceled it on account of the insurance problem. I had taken a day off for that and one other, which I couldn't get back. Then they had the gall to send me their email newsletter, which I said I didn't want. I did say why. What they did then was send me a PAPER newsletter. They never offered me any compensation for the money that was wasted, nor did they offer me any discount on a procedure that I may have wanted that is not covered by insurance. I am simply out the time and the money. Thanks for nothing!

My wife was in a car accident and suffers from a closed head injury. We have been with Dr. McKee for 7 years and he is amazing! He listens to our concerns and educates us on what to expect and what directions and options we have. He has been MORE THAN VERY helpful in dealing with our insurance company when getting experimental or new treatments are available to try. I highly recommend him
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
