All the nurses were encouraging and helpful. Everything was explained thoroughly to us before and during aspects of labor. We could not have had a better labor experience.
Everything went very well.
My main nurse during labor and delivery was Jessie (she mentioned she was a traveling nurse). She was very supportive, encouraging and listened to me. My labor was an “all-hands on deck” situation at times and there were other nurses around – Abby and Susan. Sheena came on shift and helped me get from recovery to my overnight room. She was very kind and helpful while getting myself out of bed, cleaned up, and situated. Thank you to all the wonderful L&D nurses, you gals rock!
All of the labor and delivery staff was wonderful during our stay. In particular, Jennifer, Patti Lane, Doris Rack, Dr. Hoskins were all exceptional. Nursing student Haley was also excellent and we appreciated her knowledge and willingness to ask the other nurses why certain things were done to improve her own knowledge and our care.
Jackie, Susan, and Maegan were all very helpful in this new process and couldn’t have asked for better.
My care was excellent. Staff very polite and knowledgeable.
Everything was excellent.
My husband and I were taken care of very well before/during the delivery of our child. All three of us received exceptional care after delivery as well. Thank you HMC Women’s Center OB Unit.
LeAnn was my favorite nurse, and Carolyn was my favorite aide. Thank you for the excellent care. They were very kind and helpful. Everyone was nice and friendly.
The staff was great; from the nurses, doctors, front desk staff and everyone in between. Everyone was helpful, knowledgeable about their area and very friendly! Thanks for great service!
Thank you to everyone here at Hays Medical for the support and education and care we received. My baby and I are glad that we are cared for beyond measure. Please keep up the outstanding care towards your patients. A smile and the love and support received truly go a long way! Thanks again.
Everything was great. Everyone was nice and very informative about helping me know what was going on with my girlfriend’s surgery.
We had wonderful care. The nurses and doctors were very understanding of our situation.
Dr. Sloan and her nurse Molly were excellent while I was delivering. My stay was great. All of the nurses were great. They respect if you are trying to sleep and they are on top of everything and always there for whatever reason needed.
Thanks so much for service.
I was so impressed by how caring the staff was. Every single nurse/staff was so warming and helpful during the day and throughout the night. Dana your traveling RN was so kind. Also my night nurse Jackie was the sweetest! I had an overall GREAT experience! Thank you all so much!
All of the staff from Dr. Fort and Dr. Heston, surgical staff to the nursing staff were all absolutely amazing!! Nursing staff was very helpful and attentive!

Thank you to everyone for the outstanding care that you gave to my wife and daughter!
The nursing staff, OR staff and doctors at HaysMed are amazing. I’ve had such a wonderful experience here during my stay. The nursing staff went above and beyond with answering all of my questions and helping me get the hang of breastfeeding. You all Rock!

I had a wonderful experience at HaysMed. Dr. Sloan and nurses Kathy and Sarah gave me great care during my pregnancy.

Thank you for your expert care! I’m so grateful! Dyane was a blessing to me the day after and Carolyn was so sweet and helpful.
Our nurse Jennifer was the best type of person. Went above and beyond. Everyone is so helpful and ready to be there.
We came in for scheduled C-section . We have received exceptional care from every aspect. From check in/procedure/post procedure/follow-up/observation/discharge. Nursing staff (all of them) polite, effective and on top of all issues. Positive attitudes and very good representation of your institution. They all need recognition for a job well done. PS… Thank goodness for lactation.
Staff was so friendly and really helped me the best they could.
I had Lisa as my nurse my first night after my C-section. My baby had to be transferred and she was just wonderful. She was very personable, compassionate and made sure I was comfortable the whole time.
Doctors and nurses all friendly, helpful, took time to explain treatments and things well.
Susan from labor and delivery is an amazing nurse! We could not have made it through the day without her!
The nurses I had – Molly, Lisa, Emily – are the best so far. The nurses my son had – Doris and Lisa – are also good.
Everybody was very nice. Nurses were very friendly in recovery. Thank you all. Dr. was also very nice. Thanks to the nurses for being patient with me. Abby was a great nurse – thanks for all your help.

Dana the RN was fantastic! Very pleasant, kind, caring and all around amazing. She was very encouraging and attentive.
My doctor and nurses were great. Dr. Sloan and Nurse Susan were wonderful. Kept us smiling and were there when we needed her. All other staff were very nice and made us feel very welcome.
My delivery nurse was great and very supportive. My choice to not get an epidural was respected and not questioned. Dr. Sloan was very calm and helpful.
Everyone in with delivery was good with letting my baby and I experience skin to skin and bonding immediately after delivery. Dr. Powell was great with my baby. The post-partum nurses I had were very good with us. The food was good too.
I had 3 staff members stick out to me during my stay in OB. First, it was Emily, working 7am – 7pm. She helped take care of my every need while in labor and was super kind through it all. Very sweet! Also, Dr. Fort, he is kind and always makes you feel comfortable with his jokes. Made me feel less stressed/worried! Lastly, Molly, that took care of me/baby during postpartum care. She was kind and hardworking and never made me feel like I was being annoying, even though I felt like I was.
Thank you! I really appreciate everything you guys did for us – wouldn’t have made it without you!
Please give everyone in OB a “High 5” from us. Everyone did an amazing job taking care of us! Thank you.

The staff was really helpful through the pre-op stage until the discharge stage. Always willing to lend a hand or grab something if need be. They were really helpful in explaining everything for us new parents. Never seemed like we bothered them, which is great! Had a very positive and relaxing experience here. I definitely couldn’t be happier with our choice in facility to deliver our daughter. Would very highly recommend to anyone looking for better care. Great staff.

The past 60 hours I spent here was such a great experience. Everyone helped, listened and got what I needed. I just feel like at home, or even greater than at home. For me, I’m a first-time mom and I didn’t have a chance to go to nursing classes. Everything is new to me. Thank you. Every nurse was so helpful and walked me thru every point. I’ve gained a lot of knowledge to take care of my baby girl. Thank you so much!!!
Your staff in the Women’s Center has made our whole pregnancy a wonderful experience? All of the nurses that took care of us made what could have been a little bit scary absolutely easy. We felt fully supported and able to ask anything! So from Aubrey and Jeana in Dr. Hoskins office to Susan, Kristen, Kalin, Stephanie and LeAnn Thank you for your time and support.
You guys are always great and offer wonderful care – not sure how you can improve on already great service. Fantastic staff and experience! Everyone is very professional and caring. Everything was well organized and we were treated with respect and kept informed.

We couldn’t have done this without all of you! Love you all!
*When I came to have my son in Labor and Delivery, I was so amazed by all of the staff and how well they worked together to make sure I was comfortable and relaxed. Dr. Weber was AMAZIN! There were 4 other deliveries going on at the same time, but she made me feel like I was the only patient there and I was a top priority. Thank you to all the OB Women’s Center staff for taking great care of my son and I while we stayed there. You all Rocked!!!
