GVMH receives 4 start rating from HCAHPS

Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare has received a four-star rating from a patient satisfaction survey, the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS). The survey is required by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Systems (CMS) and rates 3,504 hospitals nationwide.

The rating is a summary of star ratings collected throughout the past year. GVMH was among 1,203 hospitals to receive a four-star rating, and the area hospital to receive this high of a ranking. 

“This rating matters because it comes from our patients,” GVMH CEO Craig Thompson said. “Quality ratings are important too, but a customer satisfaction survey shows that we are creating a positive patient experience here at GVMH.”

The survey is designed to create an unbiased way to compare hospitals. The overall star rating is a combination of 11 rating categories, ranging from communication with nurses to pain management and hospital cleanliness. GVMH scored above the averages for Missouri hospitals and hospitals nationwide in all 11 categories.
