Healthgrades has recognized 399 hospitals as recipients of its 2022 Outstanding Patient Experience Award. This represents the top 15 percent of hospitals in the U.S. for patient experience. Twenty-four facilities in Wisconsin are on the award list!

The awards are based on an analysis of 3,173 hospitals that submitted at least 75 patient experience surveys to CMS for admissions between July 2020 and March 2021, according to a news release. Hospitals in the bottom 20 percent for overall quality were excluded. Healthgrades applied a scoring methodology to 10 patient experience measures, such as overall rating and whether a patient would recommend the hospital to family or friends, to identify recipients.
