Your Experience Matters

As a patient, family member, community representative or employee of Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare you have the right to notify the Joint Commission regarding any concern about the quality or safety of care, as well as safety of the environment in which care is provided.

We participate in the nationally standardized Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) Survey. One to two weeks after you leave the hospital, you may receive a phone call from HealthStream Research asking specific questions about your experience with us. Comments and scores are shared with our staff, and overall scores are reported nationally for all hospitals on www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov.
