Patient Satisfaction

Everything that we do at Kaweah Delta Health Care District revolves around our patients. We aim to provide care in a comfortable and safe environment, all the while keeping in mind patient preference and delivering excellent care. Our team is on the road to providing better patient care through a new initiative at Kaweah Delta.

One way we do this is through Kaweah Care, a district-wide initiative, introduced in 2009, that is designed to develop a culture of patient-centered excellence. Kaweah Care is the driving foundation for developing an always culture, one where engagement, ownership, and selflessness translate into better service for our patients and each other.

How We're Doing

Patients who are selected at random are now telling us how we're doing by taking a national survey about their recent hospital stay. The following questions are from the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey. These are our results from the first quarter of 2016.
