P&S Surgical Hospital is one of the nation’s 28 physician-owned hospitals that patients “definitely recommend.” P&S is one of two Louisiana hospitals to be honored and the only one in northeast Louisiana.

 

The distinction, announced by Becker’s ASC Review, is awarded to hospitals in which 92 percent of patients recommend the hospital. The national average is 72 percent; P&S Surgical Hospital’s percentage is 93 percent.

 

Ranking above the national average in patient recommendations embodies the dedication of P&S physicians and medical staff, said CEO Linda S. Holyfield.

 

“We are honored to be recognized among the nation’s best. We are committed to providing our patients and their families with incredible care,” she said.

 

Patients report their recommendations via Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems, which is a national, standardized survey instrument and data collection methodology for measuring patients’ perspectives on hospital care.

 

The numbers were extracted from Center for Medicaid & Medicare Service Hospital Compare website with data compiled from July 2015 through June 2016, the most recent data available.
