Patient Satisfaction Quality Ratings

Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems Survey (HCAHPS)
The Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems Survey (HCAHPS), created through efforts of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, is designed to improve consumer choice, create loyalty, and move facilities to a patient satisfaction-based reward system. Mercy scored above both the Illinois and national average in a number of quality measures and shone particularly bright in the patient satisfaction results. Please view our results at the link below.

Mercy Ranks Significantly Better Than State Average

Mercy Hospital & Medical Center ranked significantly better than state average performing at the best possible rate in five categories: Heart Attack Deaths(Not Including Transfers), Inpatient Heart Attack Deaths, Hip Replacement, Stroke, and Congestive Heart Failure.

These results were presented in the recent Illinois Hospital Report Card. The Illinois Hospital Report Card was created to provide patients the opportunity to access information about the quality of health care provided in Illinois.
The Illinois Hospital Report Card tracked mortality data in all Illinois hospitals. Mortality data was chosen, because better processes of care may reduce short-term mortality, which represents better quality health care. In this study the better your mortality rate is, the better your hospital has performed, which translates to more lives saved.
