Patient Satisfaction

| Print | E-mail

Patient satisfaction is a key element of our quality model and integrally related to our mission and core values of respect, compassion, stewardship, and excellence. We are committed to treating our patients and their families with the care, dignity, respect, and compassion we would want for our families and ourselves.

We care about what our patients think, so we measure patient satisfaction. We are proud of our results, as we are at or above the state and national average in our overall patient satisfaction scores.  We welcome patient feedback to identify opportunities for improvement.
