What Our Physicians Say.

No one knows the quality of a hospital better than the physicians who practice there. The physicians who work with us overwhelmingly say that they choose us because of our quality ratings, which point to the positive patient outcomes we achieve. But the real proof is in the successful results they see in their own patients' lives.

"This hospital is the best example of what a surgical experience should be – patient-centric care which promotes outstanding outcomes and overall satisfaction." – Greg Lanford, MD, Saint Thomas Hospital for Specialty Surgery

"If you're considering surgery, look at the hospital's net promoter score. It measures patient satisfaction, outcomes and pain management. Here, the hospital gets a 97 percent rating!*" – Carl R. Hampf, MD, Saint Thomas Hospital for Specialty Surgery
