Island Hospital ranked 3rd in Washington State for earning high scores for quality from Medicare patients who received care in 2013, according to an article in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (PI). In the survey, 79 percent of Island’s patients scored their care a 9 or 10.
The PI based the rankings on the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services-required surveys of patients who have stayed at Medicare-eligible hospitals. The PI ranked Washington State’s top hospitals based on how these patients scored their care on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being highest.
