ELMHURST – Elmhurst Memorial Hospital is one of the top 10 hospitals for patient satisfaction in Illinois, according to an independent comparison website.

NerdWallet Health, a health transparency site, analyzed patient satisfaction rates at more than 100 hospitals in the state, and Elmhurst Memorial ranked No. 7 in the top 10 list of large hospitals most likely to be recommended by patients.

The study analyzed the percentage of patients who reported doctors always communicated well, patients always received help as soon as they needed it, pain was always well controlled, rooms and bathrooms were always clean, the area around patient rooms was always quiet at night and the hospital deserved a rating of 9 or 10, where 10 would be the highest.
