Bastyr Center for Natural Health Rated a Leader in Patient Experience in the Puget Sound Area

Washington, DC – The American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) congratulates Bastyr University and its Bastyr Center for Natural Health, which continues to be among the leaders in patient satisfaction across the Puget Sound region, according to a report just issued by the Washington Health Alliance.

The report, entitled Your Voice Matters: Patient Experience with Primary Care Providers in the Puget Sound Region, assessed 46 primary care clinics and hospital systems as measured by the survey responses of approximately 36,000 patients.

The Bastyr Center for Natural Health, which provides naturopathic care, scored as one of the top 5 performers in every category. This continues the Center’s high ranking as established in the Washington Health Alliance’s last patient satisfaction assessment, published in 2012.

“Naturopathic physicians are known for their attention to the whole person. These results attest to the outstanding end result of patient satisfaction,” commented Jud Richland, MPH, CEO of AANP. “We congratulate Bastyr University and the Bastyr Center for Natural Health on this tremendous accomplishment and the outstanding patient care implicit in these ratings.”
