Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Reports, Top Rankings

We regularly achieve top rankings from our patients, as reported by Press Ganey, an independent, nonprofit customer satisfaction surveyor. All departments of Mount Nittany Medical Center receive these reports to facilitate superior patient care.

Since 2006, almost all of our quarterly reports have placed our department in the 93rd percentile or higher in every category: against regional competitors, against similar sized hospitals and against all other Press Ganey rated institutions.

This installation upgrades tray service beyond expectations through its bright, classy presentation. The operator wanted each tray service to stand on its own and this installation achieves this goal by presenting something that's unlike anything our judges have seen in patient feeding.

Foodservice Magazine

Foodservice Magazine: First place, Onsite Foodservice

In the February issue of Foodservice Magazine, Mount Nittany Medical Center received first place in the Onsight Foodservice category. The judges said they were "blown away by the (Mount Nittany Medical Center) team's creativity and willingness to step outside the box."

The trays were designed by Chef Gary Glenn and are complemented by sophisticated touches like china and cast-iron cocottes.
