Carle Hoopeston cited for patient care

Article supplied by Carle

A publication that focuses on healthcare industry news recently listed Carle Hoopeston Regional Health Center (CHRHC) among the top hospitals in the country, including among only 15 in Illinois, to be the best in nurse communications for patients.

Becker’s Hospital Review came up with the list based on the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems data from the Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services. The star rating is based on responses to three survey questions on how patients feel about nurses providing clear explanation, nurses treating patients with courtesy and nurses respecting and listening to patients. The data, released Jan. 31, 2024, is from post-visit patient surveys done between April 2022 and March 2023.

“We are very proud of our nurses at Carle Hoopeston Regional Health Center. The care and respect the nurses offer each patient is evident each day. The nursing teams have provided a commitment to a rural area that is otherwise limited to care received close to home. The nurses take pride in providing access to world-class care, listening to individual patient needs, and ensuring they have the information they need for healthcare decisions,” Heather Tucker, DNP, RN-BC, NEA-BC, Hospital Administrator at Carle Hoopeston Regional Health Center, said.

CHRHC nurses are on a journey to Magnet designation, the highest recognition for nursing excellence in the healthcare industry. They are dedicated to creating an inclusive and compassionate care experience and are proud to earn the trust the community has in their care.
