“Bacon County Hospital is honored to receive this HCAHPS award, stemming from our patient satisfaction surveys. It takes a culture of giving exceptional customer service to achieve this kind of recognition, as well as a team effort. The Board, Medical Staff, and Administration set the expectations for our staff and hospital system to follow. As an end result, our directors must be willing to educate their staff and set the example for what our organization expects in how we treat our patients, residents, and family members.”

Best Hospital in Georgia
Why Bacon County Hospital ranks as one of the top 100 hospitals in America:
The America’s 100 Best Hospitals scoring process begins with scores derived from each hospital’s Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) database. The score takes a subset of the questions HCAHPS uses that research and experience shows are more important to women than to men. Weight is applied to each of those questions to adjust for relative importance to arrive at a numerical score. The scoring is totally objective and uniform. The best 100 scores in each of the 4 size categories has determined that Bacon County Hospital is a Best Hospital in the U.S. for Patient Experience.
