Healthgrades Names Saint Joseph Berea a 2023 Outstanding Patient Experience Award Recipient

BEREA, Ky. (March 17, 2023) – Saint Joseph Berea has been recognized as a 2023 Outstanding Patient Experience Award™ recipient. This distinction places Saint Joseph Berea among the top 10% of hospitals nationwide for patient experience, according to Healthgrades, the leading marketplace that connects people with the right doctor and hospital.

“At Saint Joseph Berea, our caregivers, from the bedside nurse to our support employees to our physicians, all are focused on humankindness and quality care,” said John Yanes, president, Saint Joseph Berea. “Our teams of caregivers are determined to provide the highest quality of care, focused on each patient as an individual. We are proud to receive this national award, which recognizes the success of those efforts.”

For this annual analysis, Healthgrades evaluated 3,138 hospitals that submitted at least 100 patient experience surveys to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), covering admissions from January 2021 through December 2021. Of those hospitals evaluated, 419 hospitals outperformed their peers—based on their patients’ responses—to achieve this award.

Healthgrades evaluates performance by applying a scoring methodology to ten patient experience measures, using data collected from HCAHPS survey of the hospital’s own patients. Survey questions focus on patients’ perspectives of their care in the hospital, from cleanliness and noise levels in patient rooms to medication explanations and hospital staff responsiveness to patients’ needs. The measures also include whether a patient would recommend the hospital to friends or family and their overall rating of the hospital.

“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 and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “We commend these hospitals for their ongoing commitment to prioritizing an exceptional patient experience, while ensuring the health and safety of their patients.”
