Hays Medical Center has a full service heart program developed under the guiding hand of the "father of heart surgery" Dr. Michael DeBakey. The program includes 2 full time catheterization labs, interventional cardiology, nuclear cardiology, open heart surgery and cardiac rehabilitation. Patients receives one on one nursing care in ICU before being transferred to a dedicated cardiology step-down unit where they remain until discharge. A respiratory therapist is also dedicated to each patient following surgery.
The heart program at HaysMed is committed to including referring physicians in the decision making process and keeping them updated on the patient's status. Priority is given to returning patients promptly to their local community hospitals and health care providers.
I cannot express the level of care and compassion that I received from your center. The level of knowledge and communication is surpassed by none. The level of compassion and understand was superior. They all took time to make me understand what happened to me and explained it as well to my wife. I am moving to the area and I have NO concerns about the level of care I will receive in the future. I must share that the overall care was beyond what I could have expected. Jessie was so attentive and always asked what I needed before I was even ready. She made my stay easier than you can know. She made our stay as pleased as one could have expected. All of the doctors, nurses, staff including room service has a higher standard of excellence than any other hospital I have ever experienced!
None of us want to be in a hospital but the nurses, aides and other supporting staff was very pleasant, friendly, supportive and helpful. I was very thankful for their help. The people that I dealt with were "top of the line." The food and food service was very good and very accommodating.
Everything was great. Everyone from the doctors to housekeeping were exceptional. If it weren't for having a heart attack I would have enjoyed everything about my stay. I think everyone went above and beyond. Thank you very much; it hardly felt like being in a hospital
My father had a heart attack Monday and was admitted to the DeBakey Heart Institute @ HMC.
I lived in Hays until 1997, but now live in Topeka. After hearing of my dad's condition I headed to Hays. My children were actually born at the old St. Anthony's hospital. (now HMC), but I'd not been in the facility for probably twenty years. I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how impressed I was with the hospital, and especially the heart institute.That is one, top –notch facility! ………and the staff there, caring for my father, was superb to match.What a wonderful thing it is for Hays to have such a fine hospital. I cannot say enough about how well we were treated. Dr. Markiewicz did the procedure and Dr. Davis was the attending physician. Both were fabulous, but Dr. Davis was so gentle and caring toward my dad. That meant a lot to all of us.
Our nurses were all wonderful, especially Lacy on the first evening.
Many, many kudos to ALL.
My husband has had nothing but loving, competent care whether in ICU or CPCU. Nurses and Drs have taken my needs and concerns into consideration as mush as my husband. Dr. Davis and Dr. Ashworth and Susie are some really top notch surgeons but so many others also. People in the offices – wherever we needed help, everyone was so caring.
Food service is excellent! Nurses were friendly, courteous and gave immediate attention. Everyone and everything was neat and clean. We would recommend this hospital and staff!
I have been here before and everybody was exceptional. The nurses and doctors are fantastic. Excellent care, great personalities, excellent food and service.
The staff were wonderful. No surgery situation is stress-free but the staff here maintains professionalism while helping your smile. Thank You Jana and everyone who took care of me and the kindness you all showed me will never be forgotten.
Mom has had excellent care while in the hospital. She and I are very satisfied with her care. Andy, Lacy, and Barb were so nice and did such a wonderful job and showed such care and concern. Thank you so much. Also, Dr. Markiewicz did a great job and was good to explain the procedure. We hold high praise for him, along with his staff.
We came in and were immediately taken care of. Everyone did a wonderful job answering questions and keeping us informed. We were taken from the Emergency Room to the care room very promptly. Thank you to all the staff that helped and had a part in my care giving. You all did a wonderful job.
Your aids and nurses here make it a great place to stay. They all have beautiful smiles and are willing to help you with anything. I've been in a lot of hospitals the last couple of years and this is the best hospital of all. Thank you all."
My personal nurses were Sheila and Leitha. Both were very caring and compassionate. Very cheerful, met all my needs and kept me comfortable. Being in a hospital is not where one wants to be but what a difference good staff makes. They did not feel like strangers and I love people anyway. Accommodations were nice.
My stay here has been exceptionally pleasant. All nurses and aides have been on the ball and helped at every call. They all have been friendly and courteous. Thanks to Stephanie and Brian the nurses on my stay for a job well done.
Laci, Shannon, Allison and Barb are the people that I remember names. I received the best care – everyone I have encountered was great. I have dealt with other hospitals nurses and doctors and this by far was a wonderful experience and the utmost professional and best care. I would highly recommend the hospital to everyone. Thank you for taking such good care of me.
We always choose to come to your medical center because you have caring and helpful workers. We always have good comments on your facility and nurses and doctors."
