Location and Directions


My husband and I were away for the weekend from NY to PA. He had a bad cough for a while but it got worst very fast. It was scary being away from home and Our Doctor. We found St Mary’s Hospital and were beyond relieved with this hospital. The doctors, nurses, PA, etc were amazing; they were kind, efficient, fast and made us feel so comfortable to be in such capable hands. He was quickly diagnosed with pneumonia and was treated immediately! I wish we could thank everyone individually, but instead a huge Thank you to all! (2 months ago)

IF YOU CAN, go to another hospital. It's a nice place, but MRSA is easy to catch. I got it, the last time I was here. My doctor said it is common to catch from St. Mary's Hospital. They dust mop allot, I don't think that helps. Also, I've caught parasites here: head-lice, plus a completely different kind of head-lice then the common Nitts, I got other things - one parasite hid in cracks on the body, another I don't want to mention. I got these from, can you believe it, from Ultra-sound tests, the ER and staying over-night. IT MAKES ME SICK!!!! To get rid of parasites easily, I got rid of these, by using "Dawn Dish Washing Liquid". Good for killing fleas on dogs, too. (a month ago)

The only thing I can say that was good was the phlebotomist who drew blood from my fiancé for labs, he was awesome. The rest of the staff and experience SUCKED. I brought my fiancé to the Emergency Room at Saint Mary Hospital when she wasn't showing signs of improvement over 3 days. Nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, dizziness, and feeling weak. We get there, and from the start it was a horrible experience. She explained to the triage intake nurse what her symptoms were, and that she hasn't had her cycle in three months. Loudly and rudely she was asked in front of everyone if she was pregnant, had she ever been pregnant, and does she even know what that feels like. Sat for nearly 2 hours while patients that came in with minimal issues were seen first. Sat for four hours in the ER to have a pregnancy test done (results were never given to us) labs drawn, tested, and get a chest X-ray to be told "she has some kind of viral infection, but we're not sure what it is." What use is your "state of the art facility and staff" when you are incapable of diagnosing a patient. "It's your health, expect more"... That's false advertising. We followed up with her primary care physician 3 days later to find out they NEVER DID THE PREGNANCY TEST BECAUSE THERE WAS NO RECORD OF IT WHEN THE DOCTOR CALLED! How the f#@k do you perform a chest x-ray on a patient who is exhibiting the biggest clue to a pregnancy of NO MENSTRUATION IN 3 MONTHS WITHOUT TESTING FOR PREGNANCY FIRST!?!? Great job with being careless and reckless with someone who wain your care Saint Mary ER staff! You're scumbags. We would rather die enroute to a different facility than EVER come to your pathetic hospital again. (in the last week)

This is the best medical service that I have ever received in America. Thank you for the fact that the birth of my daughter was in excellent conditions with excellent medical workers! (a month ago)

Was here tonight at the ER to have my son checked for an ear infection and strep throat. Staff was super nice and the nurse and doctor that took care of us in peds were both great. However, I'm giving a one star review because I sat in front of the woman at the discharge desk for 30 mins while she blatantly ignored me and my son and even had the nerve to turn her back on me and try to engage others working around her in chit chat while my son was begging to leave so we could go pick up his Rx. Not one word was spoken to me. Not a "I'll be right with you" or even a hello. I walked out. I could just as easily gone to an urgent care and paid less but St. Mary's is directly across tetstreet from me. After I left I text a member of the staff at the hospital that I know and was told "yeah she sucks" and "she does that to people all the time". FIRE HER! (a month ago)
