Tanner Hospitals Awarded for Outstanding Patient Experience


The best care a healthcare provider can offer is the kind that puts patients first. That’s the standard of care provided at Tanner Health System, and that higher level of care has earned two of the health system’s hospitals quality awards from Healthgrades, one of the nation’s leading hospital rating agencies.

Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton and Tanner Medical Center/Villa Rica have earned Healthgrades’ 2018 Outstanding Patient Experience Award.

The Healthgrades’ Outstanding Patient Experience Award recognizes hospitals that provide an overall outstanding patient experience based on Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) patient survey data, a comprehensive patient survey that scores healthcare organizations based on a series of quality measures and information about patients’ experience in the hospital.

“It’s part of our mission to offer the best standard of care,” said Loy Howard, president and CEO of Tanner Health System. “It starts with our dedicated team members, who continually go above and beyond for our patients. It takes that level of commitment to service to deliver a superior quality of care. That’s our priority. We strive to provide every patient the best care possible while they are at Tanner.”

Over the years, Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton has received recognition from Healthgrades in multiple categories, including Healthgrades’ America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Orthopedic Surgery Award for eight consecutive years, which is an award that recognizes hospitals for superior outcomes in back and neck surgery, spinal fusion, hip fracture treatment, hip replacement and total knee replacement.

Additionally, Tanner Heart and Vascular Center was recognized for having superior outcomes in coronary intervention procedures and received Healthgrades’ Coronary Intervention Excellence Award™ in 2017.

Healthgrades is a national healthcare quality rating agency that identifies hospitals with superior clinical performance and patient outcomes. Healthgrades recognizes the best-performing hospitals with excellence awards. More information about Healthgrades is available online at Healthgrades.com.
