MDI Hospital best in Maine

BAR HARBOR — Mount Desert Island Hospital is the top-rated hospital in the state and among the top three in New England for patient satisfaction, according to a national survey.

The Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) uses benchmarks such as physician communication, responsiveness of staff and the willingness to recommend the hospital in their ranking survey. The HCAHPS announced MDIH’s top ranking last week.

“To come out on top in a state that ranks well above national average for the quality of its hospitals is a real honor, and a reflection of the community that we live in and the hard working people that we employ. We have great patients and we like listening to what they have to say,” said Art Blank, president/CEO of MDI Hospital.
