Patient Comments

When a patient is discharged from St. Joseph's they may randomly be selected to receive a patient satisfaction survey from us through our survey partner, Press Ganey and Associates. When a patient writes a comment on his or her survey it is logged into the computer at Press Ganey and sent to us for our information. We highly value the comments of our patients and we follow up on their concerns and compliments. Below are a few of the many positive comments St. Joseph’s received in January 2014.

    I have truly been blessed.  They have even, somehow, managed to keep me out of the hospital.  I was in 'rough' shape.  Now I'm living again and I look forward to their visits.  I even have food in my home, my body is clean, I have clean clothes, and hope for my future.  None of which I had before.  Their help has changed my life.  From the bottom of my heart - - - I thank you.  This agency has help me more than I thought possible.  Everyone is extremely helpful.  I have even been blessed with some friendships.
