HCMS Physicians Hospital Survey

HCMS is committed to serving the needs of our members as they care for their patients and improve the health of our community. 

HCMS conducts an annual survey to determine physicians' perspective and satisfaction with local hospitals' delivery of quality patient care. In 2017, almost 4,000 physician surveys were received that provided statistically valid results for 26 hospitals. 

The results are meant to generate dialogue between physicians and hospital administration and improve the overall quality of care across all Houston hospitals. Additionally, the collected information will identify best practices and opportunities for improvement at Houston area hospitals.

The 2018 survey was launched Sunday, September 9 and will close on October 15. The survey includes 36 hospitals. We ask for your cooperation in completing the survey. Click here for a flyer to help us promote the survey within your hospital.
