Voice of the Patient
We are a community of caring. Everything we say and do and how we say and do it is reflected in the differential patient experience you will encounter at Springfield Clinic. We want every patient to have peace of mind that they are receiving the highest quality care and are fully supported by our care team and employees.
Simply put, we care about our patients as people!
We all live together in the communities we serve. We build our patient-provider relationships based on trust and communication. We want everyone to receive the emotional and physical care they expect and deserve from their health care provider.
We care about your experience and rely on the voice of our patients to continually improve. Thank you!
Our patient experience surveys are administered to measure our performance during your patient journey.
Within a week of your clinic visit, you may receive a text message or email invitation from our patient experience partner, Press Ganey. These confidential surveys help us recognize employees and providers that have gone above and beyond and guide our operations team with suggestions for improvement.
In 2021, we received more than 85,000 completed patient surveys with nearly 50,000 detailed patient comments. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback so we can continually improve and recognize our employees and providers. We read EVERY patient comment! This year, we are recognizing more than 150 providers for achieving the top ten percent in national patient experience performance in 2021, 50 of whom are in the top one percent. View the the full list for this year, and be assured your care is in great hands at Springfield Clinic.
Thanks to your input we adapted our services such as convenient walk-in appointments for Orthopedics, and expanded Urgent Care hours, Telehealth appointments, time-saving drive-up labs and an expansion of coverage for our TeleNurse program—which stands ready in your time of need. We continue to invest in digital technologies to continually improve the patient journey and health care outcomes.
