Healthgrades Awards Schneck with Outstanding Patient Experience Award

| News

Healthgrades has awarded Schneck Medical Center with its 2022 Outstanding Patient Experience Award. This is the third consecutive year Schneck has received the recognition, and one of only nine hospitals in Indiana.

The award is based on patient responses to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys. The winning hospitals, representing the top 15 percent in the nation, received the highest scores from their patients for providing a positive experience during their hospital stay. Schneck was evaluated against over 3,100 hospitals that submit patient surveys to CMS.

“We are honored to receive this award for the third consecutive time,” said Eric Fish, MD, MBA, FACOG, CEO and President of Schneck. “Being recognized among the top 15% in the nation for Outstanding Patient Experience is a recognition of our culture, team member engagement, and our commitment to quality patient care.”

“It's no surprise that patient experience in our healthcare systems has suffered due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so it's exceptional that nearly 400 hospitals received top marks in patient experience," Brad Bowman, MD, chief medical officer and head of data science at Healthgrades, said in the release. "We commend these hospitals for their ongoing commitment in keeping the patient experience front and center even through challenging times."
