Patient Feedback Tools

We also have a number of feedback tools for you to provide information about the care and service you receive. Please take the time to participate in and use these feedback tools. Our goal is to provide compassionate, quality care in a timely manner.

Keeping the Promise Boxes

Your feedback about the care and services you receive while in the medical center provides us an opportunity to make changes and improvements. There are 'Keeping the Promise' boxes with comment cards located throughout the medical center for you to express a concern, make a suggestion, or give a compliment.

 

Survey of Healthcare Experience of Patients

After your visit, you may receive a confidential questionnaire in the mail asking you about your most recent outpatient or inpatient treatment at our medical center.

Please use the survey to let us know of any concerns, complaints, or questions you have about your care, so that we can resolve them. We also appreciate compliments about what we are doing right.
