Taking care of patients and providing them with an exceptional experience – that's the job of every hospital. According to patient feedback from the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS), Alegent Health hospitals are doing just that.

HCAHPS is the nationally recognized survey used to measure patient satisfaction. And based on those numbers, the Studer Group has awarded Alegent Health hospitals with ten Excellence in Patient Care awards at their annual What's Right in Health Care conference.

"Everyone wants the highest quality of products and services that is available to them,"said Richard Miller, DO, MHA, FAAFP, chief quality officer for Alegent Health. "It is the same with healthcare – and nowhere is it more important. Each day, we strive to maintain a high level of care for all our patients. Awards like these and high patient satisfaction scores tell us we are moving in the right direction."

Studer Group, who works with more than 800 healthcare organizations around the world providing feedback on their patient care efforts, selected Alegent Health Midlands Hospital for an Excellence in Patient Care award for their exemplary results for room cleanliness.

Alegent Health earned nine Excellence in Patient Care "Special Category"awards, demonstrating outstanding performance in patient care and nominated by Studer Group coaches for those results - based on achievement, improvement and overall outstanding performance.
