Coming Monday: New England’s Best Hospitals Rated By Patients

Friday, January 04, 2013

 

On Monday, GoLocal releases its first-ever ranking of New England's hospitals based on patient experiences and ratings.

Utilizing reams of data from a government-sponsored survey of more than 50,000 patients, GoLocal's analysis will reveal the top hospitals in each state that do best by their patients.

Patients--the voices that matter most

The analysis is based on The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) survey that asks a random sampling of patients to rate and assess their hospital experiences on 30 separate measures, including items such as how well nurses and doctors communicated, how responsive hospital staff were to patient needs, how well the hospital controlled patients' pain, and the cleanliness and quietness of the hospital environment.

GoLocal's analysis of these responses and weighting into a proprietary formula yields this new ranking of 179 hospitals in the region.

Where's your local hospital rank--at the top or at the bottom? Tune in on Monday.
