The Christ Hospital Receives Outstanding Patient Experience Award for Seventh Year in a Row

The Christ Hospital Only Cincinnati Area Hospital Recognized

Cincinnati (August 17, 2023) – For the seventh year in a row, The Christ Hospital has received the Outstanding Patient Experience Award from Healthgrades. This distinction places The Christ Hospital in the top 15% of hospitals in the nation for patient experience and the only Cincinnati area hospital to receive this distinction.

Healthgrades applied a scoring methodology to 10 patient experience measures, such as overall rating whether a patient would recommend the hospital to family or friends, cleanliness, quietness, communication with doctors and nurses and care transition.

“This recognition exemplifies the important work that the team at The Christ Hospital Health Network does every day to ensure that our patients have an exceptional experience,” said Debbie Hayes, President and CEO of The Christ Hospital Health Network. “When patients come to our health network, our goal is to ensure we have an environment that delivers excellence in all that we do. We want each of our patients to put their trust in us with each interaction and be confident that we are doing everything it takes to address their needs.”

Healthgrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award™ recognized 419 hospitals for their outstanding performance in delivering a positive experience for patients during their hospital stay. Healthgrades evaluates patient experience in U.S. hospitals using Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) patient survey data released in January 2022 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), covering patients discharged between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021.

“We applaud all recipients of the Healthgrades 2023 Outstanding Patient Experience Award for putting patient experience front and center within their organizations,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Healthgrades. “We commend these hospitals for their ongoing efforts to prioritize and exceptional patient experience, while ensuring the health and safety of their patients.”
