Patient Experience Awards

The Patient Experience Award banner is given at the end of each quarter to departments or clinics that score in the top 25 percent or 5 percent in patient satisfaction. UK HealthCare is benchmarked against other academic medical centers across the nation.

The department or clinic displays the banner during the time they have achieved the top rankings. The banners are color-coded to communicate the tier ranking. Green indicates a ranking in the 75th percentile; blue indicates the 95th percentile. Departments or clinics must receive 5 or more surveys to receive the award.

Beginning in 2017, the department or clinic that maintains the outstanding level of patient satisfaction for each quarter of the full fiscal year will be awarded a banner displaying the department name and year of the achievement.

The patient satisfaction survey is conducted by an independent third-party company. Patients score UK HealthCare on communication, responsiveness of staff, hospital environment, pain management and discharge information. 

If you have questions, please contact Chelsea Smitson at or 859-257-5967.
