There are many new faces working at Mercy, but you may not see them until you really need them.
That’s why Mercy Hospital Berryville and Mercy Clinic Family Medicine – Berryville are “pulling back the curtain” to introduce some of their newest team members. The hospital will host an open house on Monday, Dec. 11, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the main cafeteria.
The community is invited to meet the following new providers, as well as reconnect with familiar ones:
“We’re so proud of the Mercy team, and can’t wait for our community to get to know them a little better – up close and personal,” said Doug Stroemel, Mercy Hospital Berryville administrator. “We recently received a rare, five-star satisfaction rating from our patients, so there’s a lot to celebrate right now. We’ll also talk about how we plan to build on our care for the community.”
Refreshments will be provided at the Dec. 11 open house, and there will also be drawings for giveaways. Find the Facebook event here.
The HCAHPS Star Ratings program, launched in April 2015, assigns hospitals a one- through five-star rating based on HCAHPS scores. It’s part of a broader initiative by CMS to use an online rating system to help consumers compare the quality of health care providers.
This latest honor comes just months after Mercy Hospital Berryville was ranked among the top 25 percent best-performing rural, acute care hospitals in the nation by iVantage Health Analytics and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health.
“We’re here to make a difference,” Stroemel added. “It's an honor when patients say we’re fulfilling that promise.”
