Dear Friends:

Results of the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey are available publicly on the Hospital Compare Web site at www.medicare.gov/hospitalcompare. HCAHPS results reveal an independent, objective look at what patients think about the care they receive at hospitals across the country. The survey results offer a snapshot of certain aspects of health care that guide consumers to make informed decisions.

Even before the Affordable Care Act linked patient-experience assessments to Medicare reimbursement, the culture at St. Mary’s Hospital held the patient experience to the highest standards. We respect the dignity of every individual and value all patient feedback we receive.

When it comes to choosing a hospital, we want to help you make an informed decision. We encourage comparison of our clinical performance and quality data and invite you to share your experience. Submit your story here or visit stmarysmadison on Facebook to learn daily tips for staying healthy. We look forward to getting to know you.
