Abington – Lansdale Hospital recently achieved the Healthgrades 2019 Outstanding Patient Experience Award, placing it among the top five percent of hospitals nationwide for patient experience.
The award recognizes hospitals that provide an overall outstanding patient experience, according to Healthgrades, the leading online resource for information about physicians and hospitals. Abington – Lansdale Hospital has earned the Healthgrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award three years in a row (2017-2019).
Healthgrades evaluated 3,449 hospitals that submitted at least 100 patient experience surveys to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Of those hospitals evaluated, 434 of them outperformed their peers—based on patient experience responses—to achieve this distinction.
The survey questions focused on patients’ perspectives of their care in the hospital. The topics of these questions range from cleanliness and noise levels in patient rooms to physician and nurse communication. The measures also include whether a patient would recommend the hospital to friends or family.
