Awards based on hospital communication, cleanliness, and surgery outcomes

Iowa Specialty Hospital, the most decorated hospital in the nation for patient satisfaction, was recently recognized with yet another set of prestigious national awards for patient experience at both its Belmond and Clarion campuses.

Iowa Specialty Hospital—Clarion has been recognized by Consumer Reports for its focus on patient safety during surgery, ranking higher than other hospitals across the country for its low percentage of patients who have severe complications in the hospital or stayed longer than expected for their specific procedure.

“At Iowa Specialty Hospital, our priority is service and quality, and that is apparent in the high level of attention we place on patient safety and standards,” Steve Simonin, chief executive officer of Iowa Specialty Hospital—Clarion says. “We operate differently than most hospitals nationwide. From the people we hire, to the culture we nurture, we focus on delivering an experience for patients that is unmatched in our region.”

Iowa Specialty Hospital—Belmond has been recognized by HealthGrades for its outstanding patient experience based on doctor and nurse communication, hospital cleanliness, noise level and medication and post-discharge care instructions. The high patient rating shows Iowa Specialty Hospital—Belmond’s dedication to providing a higher quality of care with low rates of medical errors.

“We are dedicated to treating each patient as we would treat a member of our own family,” Nancy Gabrielson, chief executive officer of Iowa Specialty Hospital—Belmond says. “Our success stems from the focus we put on our people and supporting them in ways that create a positive experience with the patients we treat.”
