The Herald-DispatchMay 20, 2019

HUNTINGTON - Cabell Huntington Hospital has achieved the Healthgrades 2019 Outstanding Patient Experience Award, a distinction that recognizes the facility among the top 10 percent of hospitals nationwide for patient experience.

“Our dedicated team strives not only to provide outstanding clinical quality but also treat our patients the way we would want our families treated,” said Kevin Fowler, president and CEO of CHH. “We are honored to receive this recognition from one of the leading resources about physicians and hospitals.”

Healthgrades evaluated 3,449 hospitals that submitted patient experience surveys to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), covering admissions from January 2017 through December 2017, to identify hospital performance. Of those hospitals evaluated, 434 hospitals outperformed their peers - based on their patients’ responses - to achieve this distinction.
