The data is collected from an independent survey company, HealthStream. The survey is designed to encompass the entire patient experience. Data and overall scores are compared nationally to other hospitals and published to Medicare. Medicare posts hospital ratings on its Hospital Compare website.

Dr. Miller, Dr. Hernandez and Dr. Pilapitiya had the highest Provider score percentage increase from 2015 to 2016. Dr. Polzin and Brian Jackson have consistently maintained the highest overall Provider score by remaining in the 90 percentile.
