Becker's has compiled a list of the best hospitals for patient experience in Alaska using the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems scores from CMS.

The HCAHPS summary star rating is the average of the star ratings of the 10 topic-specific HCAHPS measures. The HCAHPS summary star rating combines information about different aspects of patient experience of care to make it easier to compare hospitals. Data was released Oct. 27 and are based on two quarters of data — July through December — rather than the customary four quarters. CMS says users should interpret the data with caution, "as they are based on fewer months of data, fewer discharged patients, and fewer hospitals than normal."

Hospitals included below received four patient summary star ratings. 

Alaska's top-rated hospitals for patient experience: 

673Rd Medical Group (Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson) (Jber)

Bartlett Regional Hospital (Juneau)

Fairbanks Memorial Hospital 

Providence Alaska Medical Center (Anchorage) 

South Peninsula Hospital (Homer)

*This list was updated with a data clarification Jan. 26. A previous version of this list included hospitals that received a patient-recommended five stars for patient experience.
