Maybe one time in my entire 25 years of life, I have had a good experience in this "Kevorkian paradise." The astounding amount of people that have died of negligence here really shows the staffs total disregard for the medical profession, and the oaths they swore to upkeep. Not to mention the fact they'll defend their irresponsible staff to the end. (a week ago)

Absolutely worthless. Almost every department I’ve dealt with. Could have killed my son due to neglect, well because their nursing staff was “having lunch” instead of paying attention to him. During our stay they left the room filthy. Nurses were literally throwing trash and used Medical supplies ON THE FLOOR instead of changing the overflowing trash in the In-patient peds area, right in front of us. So unsanitary. I was running 10 minutes late for an appointment because I was caught up at my sons school and when I get there they tell me I can’t be seen because all the doctors in that office have a “meeting” at noon on a Monday. Sadly I’m not a doctor but the jobs I’ve worked, when we’ve had “meetings” it’s always before or after business hours because customers/patients are always first. I guess great river didn’t get the memo. While I was being told I couldn’t be seen after calling ahead to say I’d be late and they gave me the ok then the story changed when I got there, the receprionist OUT LOUD in front of a waiting room of people asked “well, are you having an actual issue?” Whether I was or wasn’t shouldn’t decide if you can see me right then or not and how rude and disrespectful to expect me to put my personal business out there in front of a waiting room full of people. Majority of the doctors are selfish, rude, and entitled. If the doctors aren’t that way, their receptionists certainly portray them as such. The list of reasons and details I could go into about how horrible this facility is is unreal. It’s too bad I have to even give them one star. This is definitely a 0 star facility. (a month ago)

Traveling from Central Illinois over a few Saturdays, I was amazed how beautiful this facility is... overlooking a large pond with geese. The staff, both medical and facility staff were so very friendly. (2 months ago)

BEWARE. Lazy nursing staff killed my grandma. Such a great place for smokers to work since they can smoke on hospital property. This is the biggest smokers haven in Des Moines County. (a month ago)

My 87 yo mother had a phlebotomy today for a condition that she needs monthly because of cancer. She is a very hard stick so I understand bruising. However, once she had her IV in her arm, staff decided to move the machine attached to IV, the IV came out of her arm very suddenly and painfully. Really disappointed because I wouldn’t think they would make mistakes like these. They didn’t treat her very nicely or show concern so I will be looking into other solutions for her. (6 months ago)
