Healthgrades requires hospitals to meet eligibility requirements to be considered for this award. Those requirements include clinical performance thresholds and a minimum of 100 survey responses. It is said that Peterson Health’s performance ranks them among the top 80% in the nation for clinical quality.

“Patient experience surveys offer important insight about hospitals and their commitment to providing patients with outstanding experience, and furthermore, consumers value that information when making care decisions. Hospitals that have received the Healthgrades 2018 Outstanding Patient Experience Award have received high marks from their most important stakeholders-the patients themselves,” states Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer with Healthgrades.

The award was given to Peterson Health at the main hospital by Healthgrades representative, Katharine Mongoven, Director of Quality Solutions. Many were in attendance including PRMC Board of Directors, the Patient Family Advisory Council, department directors and numerous employees.
