We measure patient experience through surveys that are independently administered. All of the indicators or safe practices included in the survey are validated and defined so that all hospitals can use the same methods for calculating the statistics. This process promotes transparency in reporting and allows the public to make comparisons based on credible data.
Patients First is our defining culture. It’s a value instilled in every employee, and it’s how we operate as an organization.
Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital (SBCH) and Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital (GVCH) received a Five-Star Rating in patient survey summaries from Hospital Compare, for the category on patient recommendation.
Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital (SYVCH) is a Critical Care Access Hospital which does not have measurements in all of the Hospital Compare rating categories. In 2017, SYVCH received a Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence Award for outstanding patient experience.
