Mary Greeley Medical Center

Mary Greeley Medical Center, which opened in 1916, was a gift to the city of Ames from Captain Wallace Greeley. Today, Mary Greeley continues to be city-operated but governed by an elected Board of Trustees. The hospital is not tax supported. Rather, expenses are covered by hospital-generated revenue. As a non-profit medical center, our revenues go back into the operation of the hospital, leading to better facilities, better technology and better-trained staff to provide excellent patient care.

Our Mission

To advance health through specialized care and personal touch.

Our Vision

To be the best. 

Our Values

We take PRIDE in the quality of care we provide to our patients, visitors and families.
