Fitzgerald -- Dorminy Medical Center in Fitzgerald ranks second in the state in patient satisfaction. DMC scored a 90 in a Medicare survey conducted by the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Thursday, the hospital thanked its employees with a cookout. Dorminy's CEO Bruce Shepard praised the hospital's medical staff and other employees for the job they do and the care they provide their patients.
"It kind of sets us apart from some of the larger hospitals, the regional hospitals that are exceptional hospitals as well; but it is a great opportunity for a rural hospital our size to get such positive scores and to be able to pat ourselves on the back for a job well done," he said.
Seventy-two Georgia hospitals participated in the survey. A hospital in Fort Oglethorpe ranked Number One with a 92.
