Your safety and quality of care are our top priorities. We are accredited by the Joint Commission, an independent agency dedicated to high-performance standards in healthcare organizations. Our Joint Commission accreditation affirms our tradition of excellence and ongoing dedication to quality care.

Patient Satisfaction

Patient Satisfaction is extremely important to us. We administer patient satisfaction surveys with the assistance of Professional Research Consultants (PRC), a nationally recognized leader in the Patient Satisfaction Survey process. PRC provides national databases of comparative satisfaction information and enables its clients to benchmark their results with peer organizations.

Our organization intends to provide the best health care to our region. We want to provide excellent health care to our patients, making patient responses to these surveys very important. Your response to these surveys assists us in identifying areas of opportunity for improving services to the communities we serve.

Every day, we strive to exceed expectations in the following categories:

  • Communication with nurses
  • Communication with doctors
  • Responsiveness of hospital staff
  • Pain management
  • Communication about medicines
  • How often were your room and bathroom kept clean
  • How often was the area around your room quiet at night
  • Discharge information
  • Overall rating of the hospital
  • Willingness to recommend this hospital

For additional information about our Patient Satisfaction Surveys, don’t hesitate to contact our Quality Management Department at 423-492-7107.

Quality

We strongly commit to quality and demonstrate this belief by focusing on patient safety and performance improvement initiatives.

The Joint Commission accredits our organization and this accreditation status is recognized as a symbol of quality that reflects our commitment to meet defined performance standards. As a component of our accreditation status, we collect and submit performance data for core measure sets which are reviewed and used to improve patient care. The core measures we report are acute myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, and the surgical care improvement project. Research shows that when core measures are in place, there is improvement in both patient health outcomes and quality of life.
