We’re number 2!

Quality Billboard

Ok, normally we don’t celebrate coming in second but a recent award for GVMH is worth celebrating even though we’re number 2.

Becker’s Hospital Review and Axial Exchange have launched a new hospital ranking system based on patient engagement. Top performers include those that achieved low readmission rates, high patient satisfaction, and provided patients with online interactions such as a patient portal or social media. To see the complete list of Missouri’s hospitals, please visit Axial’s website.

GVMH was ranked second in the state for patient engagement and 213 in the nation which puts us in the top 1% or better than 99% of hospitals across the country.  The information used to calculate the patient engagement score can be found in publicly reported data dealing with patient satisfaction and readmissions.  GVMH also scored high in providing patients options for online interactions.  GVMH has a patient portal accessible to inpatients and physician clinic patients, a Facebook and Twitter page along with a website and the blog you’re reading now.

Congratulations GVMH!
