Patient Advocate Services
If you have questions or needs that are not being addressed by your care team, you may contact the hospital's patient advocate at 610-383-8438. The role of the patient advocate is to ensure that the hospital is continuing to meet your needs and to intervene on your behalf in any situation.
Another way to make your views known is to complete a patient satisfaction survey, which you may receive in the mail after you return home. We review these responses carefully and consider changes in hospital procedures and services based on your feedback.
