Fairfield Memorial Hospital has been named one of the country's top hospitals for physician communications by Becker’s Hospital Review. Becker's has compiled a list of the best hospitals for physician 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 physician communication star rating combines data from three HCAHPS survey questions and summarizes how well patients feel that their physicians explained things clearly, listened carefully to them, and treated them with courtesy and respect.

Fairfield Memorial Hospital holds a high standard when it comes to patient safety and care. In healthcare, effective communication is a key component of patient safety. It is a physician's duty to encourage open communication to obtain more complete information and enhance the prospect of a more accurate diagnosis. This standard of care that Fairfield Memorial Hospital Physicians practice results in a better treatment plan that benefits long-term health.

“It is our mission at Fairfield Memorial Hospital and a personal mission to our Physicians to treat each patient with respect, compassion, and care. It is that personal level of care that makes a difference to our patients. Even through some of the toughest and most challenging times, our physicians continuously strive to deliver excellent health care to our community.
