January 18, 2024

The Guthrie Clinic has been recognized by Press Ganey with both a Human Experience (HX) Guardian of Excellence Award and an HX Pinnacle of Excellence Award for 2023. Press Ganey is the global leader in health care experience solutions and services.

The HX Guardian of Excellence Award is part of Press Ganey’s annual ranking of the top hospitals and health systems in the country, according to performance in employee experience. The Guthrie Clinic is the only recipient in Guthrie’s 9,000 square mile service area to receive this recognition, and it places the organization in the top 5% of health care providers in the nation in creating a positive experience.

The HX Pinnacle of Excellence Award recognizes the top 5% of performers in the national health care average benchmark. Those numbers are based on engagement scores from census surveys over the two most recent calendar years.

"At Guthrie, we understand the critical impact of an engaged and motivated workforce on delivering exceptional patient care," said Dr. Edmund Sabanegh, President & CEO of The Guthrie Clinic. "We are committed to investing in opportunities for our caregivers’ continuous professional growth and advancement. When our caregivers are truly passionate about their roles, it is evident in their interactions with patients, resulting in a more personalized and profoundly positive care experience."

“The Guthrie Clinic demonstrates the transformative power of patient-centered care, positive employee experiences, and effective clinical outcomes," said Patrick T. Ryan, CEO and chairman at Press Ganey. “By prioritizing both their employees and the communities they serve to raise health care experiences, The Guthrie Clinic sets the standard for compassionate health care.”
