Patient Satisfaction scores at SJI are among the highest possible, according to physicians and medical experts. Many patients state they have, “never been treated so well” and add that they truly appreciate the care and support of the medical staff, their family and SJI Patient Navigators.
“I had spinal surgery and I was very impressed with how advanced the SJI is. All their procedures and advancements are really quite impressive. I’m a retired ER nurse and I understand how patients at some other hospitals might get overlooked at times—but not here. The people who are involved in your case are all tuned-in to your needs and the procedure.”
“I had hip replacement surgery at SJI, and as far as I’m concerned, I’d be here in an instant if I ever needed another one. Before SJI, I could barely walk and I even had severe pain just sitting. Now you’d never know I had hip surgery unless I told you.”
“I had both knees replaced at SJI at the same time, and if you need new knees, that’s the way to do it - and SJI is the place to have it done. Everyone and everything there is just so positive, and that makes a big difference.”
"The whole staff was great; caring and enjoyable. Big smiles from all; best care I have ever had. I will be back dancing soon, and will be smiling as I think of them all."
