The formal public reporting ratings are based on patient experience results

SANTA MARIA, CA – December 5, 2016 – Marian Regional Medical Center (MRMC), a Dignity Health Central Coast hospital, is pleased to announce that it was recognized with a Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) award for Best Performer, HCAHPS Overall Rating by Press Ganey, formerly Avatar Solutions.

The HCAHPS survey is a formal public reporting initiative that rates patient experience regarding their inpatient stay.  Press Ganey recognizes facilities with the highest top box rating for each HCAHPS composite, in each bed size category. All hospitals that have administered the HCAHPS survey for 12 consecutive months of the prior year are eligible for recognition.

The ratings are shared with the public and enable patients and their families to be educated on a hospital’s reputation and standing within the community it serves.

“We are incredibly proud of the recent Press Ganey acknowledgment of Best Overall Performer, as these results are produced by the consumers, our patients,” says Kerin Mase, President & CEO, Marian Regional Medical Center.  “This award serves as a confirmation of our commitment to provide exceptional quality and care to those we serve, and for that, we are appreciative.”

The Press Ganey patient experience survey, which is completed by participating inpatients, combines the required HCAHPS questions with scientifically-developed, patient-centered questions to provide the most comprehensive view of the overall patient experience. While the HCAHPS survey measures patient experience, additional Press Ganey questions reveal important qualitative details such as how well a service was provided, enabling for a more balanced perspective of patient care for the public.
