Patient Satisfaction Survey
A part of our efforts to continuously improve at Hennepin Healthcare, we survey our patients to learn about their experiences here.
You may receive our survey by mail or email. To ensure confidentiality, this survey is administered by an independent third-party, Press Ganey Associates, Inc. It should take you approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.
Your feedback and comments about your visit will help us evaluate our services, and understand how we might improve our care. With more patient feedback, we are better equipped to improve the patient experience.
Thank you in advance for completing the survey. Your participation will help us to improve the quality of care that we provide to you, your family, friends, and neighbors.
