Patient Experience & You
Patient Advocate Program at Methodist Hospital
Patient Experience works to engage patients, employees, family members
and visitors in the healthcare experience. At Methodist Hospital, our
goal is to be the patient's healthcare home and provide excellence
in care from the time the patient and family walk in the door until the
time they leave.
Patience Experience Program
Methodist Hospital is committed to providing compassionate, high-quality,
cost-effective health care to the communities we serve. We believe that
every patient deserves to be treated with respect, dignity and close attention.
The Patience Experience program helps us accomplish this mission by giving
patients an advocate through the duration of their stay at the Hospital.
The representative patients work with is responsible for:
- Employee communication in-services
- Lost and found items
- Managing the Grievance and Complaint process for the organization
- Making employees aware of cultural diversities
- Bioethics Committee
- Quality, Safety and Service Committee of the Board of Directors
We consider you a partner in your health care. When you are well informed,
participate in treatment decisions and communicate openly with your doctor
and other health professionals, you help make your care as effective as
possible. Methodist Hospital encourages respect for the personal preferences
and values of each individual. It is our goal to assure that your rights
as a patient are observed and to act as a partner in your decision making process.
The purpose of the Patient Ambassador (Patient Transportation) Department
is to ensure that the best possible patient transport services is provided
to our customers in a safe and timely manner and also delivered with respect,
honesty, dependability and integrity. The Patient Ambassadors offer not

equipment and medical supplies throughout the Hospital. It is the responsibility
of the Patient Ambassador Department to maintain a high level of patient
safety, customer satisfaction and timely transports as well as provide
an excellent Courier service throughout the hospital.
Patient Satisfaction Surveys
We want to know how our patients felt about their care so that we can keep
doing what works, and make improvements on what doesn’t. You may
receive a Patient Satisfaction Survey and we ask that you complete this
survey and return it as soon as possible. We are always striving to be
the best we can be and our goal is to be a 5-Star Hospital for our community
and citizens. In order to continue improving we need the input of patients
and customers such as you.
