Satisfaction highest in SoCal health-care providers
The Motion Picture & Television Fund has achieved the highest rating in patient satisfaction of health-care providers in Southern California, according to a survey of more than 51,000 patients.
The 2005 California Consumer Assessment Survey ranked evaluations of quality of care, access, communications and personnel. The fifth annual survey was supported by 10 health plans, representing 85% of participants in the state.
MPTF, founded in 1921, operates a 250-bed hospital, five outpatient health centers, charitable assistance and outreach programs and a full-scale retirement community.
“Our physician group and nursing staff have always prided themselves on providing an extraordinary level of care and service, but the endorsement of the very people we’re serving, particularly in relation to other larger health-care providers, is even more rewarding,” said David Tillman, MPTF president-CEO.
