Deaconess Gateway Heart Hospital Recognized for Patient Experience
A Tri-State hospital receives national recognition. The Heart Hospital at Deaconess Gateway is named among the top five percent in the nation for outstanding patient experience. An independent organization known as "Health Grades" handed out the recognition.
Brent Miller was a patient in the Heart Hospital last year. He says it was his first time staying in a hospital overnight, and the staff made him feel very at ease.
"Just the nurses and doctors were all so willing to share information," said Miller, "and just make my stay as comfortable as it could be."
More than 3,800 hospitals in the country were analyzed in the survey.
