Press Ganey patient satisfaction surveys put our service regularly above the 90th percentile in our emergency room, inpatient care units, outpatient care services, and ambulatory care unit, and physician satisfaction ranges between the 89th and 99th percentiles, with relationship to hospital administration having the highest domain score by a significant margin.
