feedback about Va Central Iowa Healthcare System
Probably the best V.A. hospital around. They attempt to keep the process easy and it mainly is. I'd gripe about parking, but they just started building a parking complex. The state grounds are always government kept (not necessarily well kept or poorly kept..just....cheapest bidder kept).
The staff has always been helpful. Mental health (bldg 6m) have most of their psychiatrists on short term contract basis, outsourced from far away states with people whom have never been in the military; so beware if your doc changes frequently. Overall, the healthcare is great, the facility is great, the staff are empathetic and kind, and renovations are always happening.
An enjoyable part of the hospital are the veteran volunteers selling their wares on the promenade. Every day there are volunteers with smiles on their faces and eager to help.
The hallway is a large dose of social interaction. Beware. A+
I have never met so many unprofessional employees all localized in one place. Some employees treat Vets and their problems like a joke. Don't want to take the time to listen to Vet's problems. Quick just to offer pharma drugs and move on. Patient advocates get so many complaints and nothing ever improves. Ignore important data when processing benefit claims. Witnessed them lying straight to a veteran's face. I'm sad to pay taxes for the horrible services they offer. This facility needs a complete evaluation from an outside source. I'm confident if this was done, 75% of their employees would be terminated. Shouldn't be judging veterans when employees cannot offer professional or reliable care.
It's a hospital for people that have served our country. What more can I say? Well it's pretty clean and people are friendly for the most part. The canteen has a nice variety of inventory although they didnt have the pretty figurines they used too:(
I've always received great care and attention at this VA hospital. My longest wait to be seen was 20 mins, and it's usually much less. The staff is courteous and competent and the building itself is always very clean and well-maintained.
Absolutely Wonderful – the Des Moines VA has been very supportive when I went through Rehab for Alcoholism. Everyone was 'there to help'
I'll never forget how kind/supportive the VA was.
