Magee Rehabilitation Hospital is proud to announce that Press Ganey Associates, Inc. has named it a 2010 Success Story Award Winner. Press Ganey currently partners with more than 10,000 health care facilities—including 50% of U.S. hospitals—to measure and improve the quality of their care and their bottom line. The company’s databases are the largest in the industry, and allow facilities nationwide to benchmark their results against peer organizations. Magee Rehabilitation Hospital is one of just six Press Ganey client facilities to receive this honor in 2010.

The Success Story Award recognizes facilities that have demonstrated leadership, implemented organizational change, and increased customer satisfaction. The Press Ganey Success Story Award is a coveted symbol of achievement in the health care satisfaction industry that is bestowed annually, and Magee Rehabilitation Hospital is just one of six organizations to receive this honor.

Richard B. Siegrist Jr., Press Ganey’s CEO noted, "We are proud to partner with Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. Their innovative approach to patient satisfaction helps to drive change in Philadelphia and improve the quality of health care."

"As an organization that adopted a Total Quality Management philosophy in 2008, it is gratifying to see that our efforts have resulted in these types of Press Ganey scores," said Magee’s President/CEO Jack Carroll, Ph.D., M.H.A.

To improve the satisfaction of patients and their families, Magee adopted a "Culture of Excellence" involving all-day, all staff interactive seminars that demonstrated the importance of positive attitudes and accountability in the workplace. The result was a feeling of responsibility across all levels of employment in the way patients and their families felt about Magee.
