Location and Directions


I visited this facility in December during all the flu epidemic. I tried to go to St Anthony's (primary dr) and it had about 50 people in the lobby. My sister took me to St Clare and I had the BEST EXPERIENCE ever. They did something that I have never seen at any other hospital. They called me in, took vitals sent me back to waiting room, called me in did chest x-ray sent me back to waiting room, called me in and put in IV and sent me back to waiting room. When they had room available they called me back in. By the time I got to room (which was maybe hour total) they had my x-rays back and were ready to treat me (fluids). The doctor was amazingly nice and courteous and so were the nurses. I was truly impressed and would go back there in a heart beat. I have read some of the other reviews and some were not so good. But I can tell you I left there asking myself why I was using St Anthony's...... (a month ago)

I have had a horrible experience with the billing department at SSM Health. I had surgery 3 different times in the last year and have always had a great experience with the St. Clare hospital though the billing department and their customer service is atrocious. I called trying to resolve a billing issue about one month ago today and was not only lied to on that day by one of the customer service representatives (telling me that she had listened to a recording of a previous conversation and telling me that I wasn't telling the truth to then find out by her supervisor that the recording doesn't even exist), but then I was lied to by her supervisor, Tiffany, as she said that she would contact her director to see if we can resolve the issue and call me back to let me know what she found out. Not only did Tiffany never call me back on that conversation, but over the last couple of weeks she would not return my calls either. When you say you are going to call someone back, do it! She claimed that a letter was sent to me explaining everything, though the only letter that was sent to me was dated before we even had that conversation and it did not mention anything about the conversation that TIffany had with her director. Either she did not listen to anything I said or SSM Health does not care. Even though the medical care is excellent the billing department is in serious need of better customer service training. A simple phone call back would have been nice. Go somewhere else if you have a choice. (3 months ago)

I have a history of heart and vascular disease and when I had to call an ambulance to bring me in for chest pains requesting St. Claire. I was directed to the waiting room. Mind you that with my heart issues, they say to be safe rather than sorry. Just to be treated like i was an inconvenience. Dr. James Smith is my cardiologist there, who is a great doctor but, I have to say that their er has alot to be desired for. It isn't the first time I have had problems with them. I'm not going into my hernia operation disaster. The medical industry makes too much money off of us to treat us like degenerates. (in the last week)

After a prenatal kidney stone scare in 2016 & delivering my baby in an emergency c-section in 2017, I would recommend this hospital hands down! I’ve never met a nurse on staff that wasn’t excellent & personable! Facilities are excellent as well! Great doctors!! (a month ago)

Called in 3 times today to schedule an ultra sound. First two times I was put on hold for 20 minutes. The third time I called I was told I was unable to schedule for another two weeks even though my doctor told me I could come in this week. I love my doctor but the staffing in maternal and fetal health is very poor and not willing to work with you or call your doctor to confirm. Considering a new place for ultra sounds. (2 months ago)
