Fairfield Memorial Hospital has been named one of the country's top hospitals for nurse communications by Becker’s Hospital Review. Becker's has compiled a list of the best hospitals for nurse communication in each state using Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems data from CMS.

CMS shares 10 HCAHPS star ratings based on publicly reported HCAHPS measures. The nurse communication star rating combines data from three HCAHPS survey questions and summarizes how well patients feel that their nurses explained things clearly, listened carefully to the patient, and treated the patient with courtesy and respect.

Fairfield Memorial Hospital nurses are trained to be patient-centered and use various communication methods. This means that they focus on understanding the patients’ individual needs and preferences, and communicate in a way that is clear, concise, and respectful.

“We are proud to announce that Fairfield Memorial Hospital was named one of the Top Hospitals for Nurse Communication by Becker’s Hospital Review. Our nurses understand that effective communication has an extraordinary impact on the overall patient’s healthcare experience. Here at Fairfield Memorial, we are dedicated to communicating clearly and compassionately with our patients. We are a tight-knit community, and our patients are our neighbors, friends, and at times, our own family. We couldn’t be more proud of this recognition to our dedicated nursing staff.” said FMH CEO, Katherine Bunting-Williams.
