Silver Cross regularly surveys all patients at the hospital and benchmarks its performance against over 2,000 hospitals using the Press Ganey patient satisfaction process.  As part of the survey, patients are asked to rank their physician on several indicators including the time the physician spent with the patient, the physician’s concern for patients’ questions and worries, how well he/she kept the patient informed, friendliness and courtesy of the physician, and the skill of the physician.
