Washington, PA (May 30, 2018) – Advanced Surgical Hospital (ASH) recently received the Healthgrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award™, recognizing ASH as providing an overall outstanding patient experience.

“We are honored to be recognized by Healthgrades with this award,” said Anne Hast, DNP, RN, ASH chief executive officer. “We have received this award for several consecutive years, which is a testament to our commitment to providing quality patient care in a compassionate and highly skilled environment.”

Only hospitals in the top 15 percent with the highest overall patient experience scores are then recognized as Outstanding Patient Experience Award recipients.

“Our team of dedicated physicians, staff and leaders is committed to providing each of our patients’ and their family members we serve with care that is compassionate and exceptional in every way,” said (Anne or Julie?). “We are proud of this most recent accomplishment and look forward to continuing to deliver the highest quality of care for which we have become known.”
