At MMH, our patients speak volumes.

More than Just a Number

When Jayme Beneker found out she was expecting her first bundle of joy, she knew what she wanted in the hospital where she would deliver. Not only did she want a hospital with a strong clinical reputation, but she wanted to feel like more than just a number. Fortunately, at Margaret Mary, she found both.

“Every interaction I had with the maternity staff, both before and after delivery, was positive and professional,” said Jayme. “Whether I was taking a prenatal class, receiving a massage or getting help installing my car seat, I felt like the nurses and staff genuinely got to know me. Some of the same nurses who taught my prenatal class were even at my delivery. I felt like I was in good hands.”

Just as important as choosing an incredible hospital is choosing a physician you can trust. Having used Dr. Michelle Shorten for her primary care needs, Jayme was thrilled to find out she also delivered babies.

“Being a first-time mom, I was a little nervous throughout my pregnancy, but Dr. Shorten was awesome about setting my mind at ease. Now that Lane is here, my husband, Allen, and I appreciate that we can see her for our whole family’s healthcare needs.”
