Patient Experience

Defining the Perfect Patient Experience

We learn about patient expectations from the patient satisfaction surveys that are mailed to your home after discharge. We may also reach out to you via text, phone call, or email. Our Patient Experience team dives into the surveys and shares important comments from patients with staff, to help us improve.

Convenient Patient Surveys

Effective January 2020, Lawrence General upgraded its patient survey operations for more timely and convenient survey completions. Now, each patient receives a brief survey on their phone, by text, email, or U.S. mail just a few days after being discharged. We use this valuable feedback to improve the patient experience for everyone.

Improving the Patient Experience

We have made a number of changes at Lawrence General to improve the patient experience.
  • Outpatients will enjoy modern, bright clinic spaces at sites on Marston Street, and at Andover Medical Center on Rt 133 and the Andover/North Andover YMCA.
  • Inpatients are cared for in bright, newly renovated adult/medical surgical units.
  • To promote a healing environment, the lights dim during quiet hours on our new adult medical/surgical units and gentle reminder signs glow to encourage quiet voices.
  • Many of our providers are bilingual or multilingual and medical interpreters are available in-house.
  • Groups of caregivers are meeting routinely to further analyze patient comments and better define the patient experience and their role in making it the best it can be.
