We welcome you to share your appreciation or concerns about your health care experience knowing that your health care providers are actively listening.

Your perspectives offer all of us at GRH a way to learn from your experiences and improve our services.

Your safety is very important to us. If at any time during your stay you have a patient safety concern or experience a patient safety incident, please report it to a member of your care team or patient relations immediately.

Please start the discussion with your health care team

By beginning the feedback process with your healthcare team, they can immediately respond to your concerns and make changes.

When you need further help

If your concern requires further attention or you feel it should be addressed by someone not directly involved in providing your care, you’re welcome to contact the clinical manager in the area providing your care or our patient relations office.

Our patient relations office helps support relationships and foster communication between patients, their families and the health care team, while considering the unique needs of each patient and family.
