Iberia Medical Center Wins Studer Group’s Excellence in Patient Care Award - Friday, July 18, 2014
Iberia Medical Center has been chosen to receive an Excellence in Patient Care award given by
outcomes firm Studer Group®. The organization will receive the award for their exemplary
"Communication with Doctors” results on the HCAHPS patient survey, to be presented at Studer
Group’s 12th annual What’s Right in Health Care® conference.
"Iberia Medical Center is honored to be awarded the esteemed Excellence in Patient Care award from
the Studer Group for having the highest patient satisfaction scores of all Studer Partners in the HCAHPS
domain for Doctor Communication,” stated Parker Templeton, CEO of Iberia Medical Center. "It is a
reflection of the comments and feedback I receive from patients sharing with me details and names of
nurses, physicians and team members that were instrumental in their care and experience at IMC.”
The Excellence in Patient Care awards are given to select organizations that are coached by Studer
Group based on various categories. To be eligible for an award, an organization must demonstrate
outstanding performance in patient care. "It is gratifying to know that our patients recognize the
importance of good communication among all caregivers,” explained Beth Gondron, IMC’s Chief
Nursing Officer. "Patients and their families are encouraged to take an active role in their daily care
while at Iberia Medical Center. Information from them and from the nursing staff is vital to the
physicians in making the best healthcare decisions for our patients.”

Chicago, Illinois. For more than a decade, What’s Right in Health Care® has offered solutions to
