Avatar Solutions, a leading provider of Patient, CAHPS (Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems), Employee, and Physician Surveys, recently announced its 2013 award-winning hospital partners. Highlighting its consistent dedication to providing a high-quality patient experience, Dignity Health’s Woodland Healthcare is proud to be among the healthcare providers recognized for outstanding performance.
“Avatar award winners show dedication to providing the excellent care experience that patients deserve,” said Lynn Ehrmantraut, Senior Vice President of Performance Improvement at Avatar Solutions. “The awards indicate these organizations are listening and responding to patient feedback and committing to provide the best experience for each individual patient.”
Avatar Solutions’ awards are meant to honor significant accomplishments in patient satisfaction and innovation in healthcare settings. The HCAHPS Best Performer honors are awarded in specific categories to facilities with the highest rating for a hospital of their size in a specific survey category. Woodland Healthcare received recognition for communication to patients regarding the medication they are receiving, including the purpose and possible side effects. This award demonstrates the focus and dedication of Woodland Healthcare’s entire staff and caregivers in providing excellent care and service to every patient we serve.
“This honor is especially meaningful to our entire team at Woodland Healthcare because they are based on feedback that comes directly from our patients,” said Kevin Vaziri, Woodland Healthcare President. “Providing exceptional and compassionate care to our patients has always been our number one priority and this recognition shows that we are succeeding in that regard; this is truly a team effort.”
