Patient & Family Experience Feedback
The Patient Experience Feedback process at HPHA provides patients and their family members with an opportunity to express compliments or discuss questions and concerns. We encourage patients and family members to provide feedback so that we can better understand your care experience. Learning from your experience is a valuable part of our continuous quality improvement program that helps us improve the way we deliver care. We encourage you to complete our patient & family feedback survey that is available upon discharge. You can also access our new Electronic Patient & Family Experience Survey
All responses collected will be kept private and confidential and are only used for internal quality improvement purposes.
HPHA is committed to accessibility for persons with disabilities. Upon individual request, a patient or family member that requires accommodation to provide feedback is advised to contact Patient Relations for assistance.

Other Ways HPHA Collects Patient & Family Feedback
NRCC Patient Surveys
The Excellent Care for All Act requires all Ontario hospitals to conduct annual patient surveys. National Research Corporation Canada (NRCC) is the company hired by the Ontario Hospital Association to coordinate the patient satisfaction survey process for all participating hospitals in the province. HPHA provides NRCC with a listing of patients discharged and patients are randomly selected to receive the survey. The survey is mailed directly to patients by NRCC and completed surveys are returned by mail to them. Completion of the survey is voluntary and all responses are kept confidential. We encourage all patients and family members who are selected to complete the survey and to express your opinions.
