What Our Patients Say ...

Jerry SteelhauserJerry Steelhauser - Marion, Iowa

I strongly praise the staff that helped make my stay at Benefit Hospital West a much happier experience than anticipated. I hope others experience the great treatment I received from Benefit Health.

Liz ScanlonLiz Scanlon - Cedar Rapids, IA

My son needed to have an outpatient surgery at Benefit Hospital East. I was worried and scared, although I knew the surgery was routine. The doctors and nurses are Benefit Hospital East didn't treat us like we were routine - they made my family feel like we were the only patients in the hospital.

Erik AndersonErik Anderson - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

The care that I received was outstanding; the encouragement that I was given daily was above and beyond anything that I expected. I owe a large amount of my speedy recovery to the support and care that I got from Benefit Health.

It's such a blessing to have a state-of-the-art facility like Benefit Hospital East available. Our granddaughter was born early and spent time in your NICU. During that time we were fortunate to receive exceptional care from talented and compassionate physicians, nurses and support staff.
