What is HCAHPS?

The HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) Survey, is a standardized survey instrument and data collection methodology that has been in use since 2006 to measure patients' perspectives of hospital care. The HCAHPS survey is administered to a random sample of adult patients across medical conditions between 48 hours and 6 weeks after discharge; the survey isn't restricted to Medicare beneficiaries. You can learn more here.

Never again

Went to the ER was completely misdiagnosed because they don't listen. Told had uti even though it didn't show up anywhere on my tests. I told them I thought I had pnuemonia. So I go home with wrong meds till I go to another hospital. By then my potassium was 2.2 and I had pnuemonia and 8 lbs lighter and had to stay in the hospital for days.my family thought I was dying. Shut this place down, this wasn't the first time I had to deal with this place

One Star

As a retired Physician who has worked in several states, I can aver, state and swear on a stack of bibles that Gerald Champion is the WORSE medical facility that I have ever experienced. It is a dangerous place to receive medical care, particularly in the E.R. Administration cannot solve their problems with faulty, missing, or dangerously incorrect medical records keeping. And they don't really care. Need medical care if you live in this area? Drive, hitchhike or crawl to Las Cruces or El Paso, where you will have a higher chance of survival. GCMC's medical stats are absolutely awful. And dangerous.
