The Ghosh Center Receives 2015 Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence Award for Outstanding Performance in Patient Experience

November 11, 2015 (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) – The Ghosh Center is pleased to announce it has been named a 2015 Guardian of Excellence Award® winner by Press Ganey Associates, Inc. This award recognizes top-performing healthcare organizations nationwide that consistently achieve rankings in the 95th percentile or above.

The Ghosh Center ranks in the 99th percentile for patient experience, the highest ranking possible. Patients themselves provide survey feedback to Press Ganey about the quality of their care. They gave the Center high marks for such factors as:

  • Feeling treated with respect and dignity
  • Being included in decision making
  • Having confidence in the care team
  • Amount of time spent with the care provider
  • Being willing to recommend The Ghosh Center to others

Patients-First has been the guiding philosophy of The Ghosh Center since Dr. Ghosh opened his new practice in 2011. He and his team are committed to caring for the needs of the whole patient, supplementing top-notch medical care with integrative therapies, such as nutrition, yoga and relaxation. They work proactively with patients to secure financial assistance to relieve the cost of care.

For Dr. Ghosh, it’s not about winning awards. “Here’s my first rule when making any decision: Is it good for the patient? If it doesn’t pass that test, we don’t go forward.”
