Patient Grievances

The patient and family are encouraged to help the facility improve its understanding of the patient’s environment by providing feedback, suggestions, comments and/or complaints regarding the service needs and expectations. A complaint or grievance should be registered by contacting the center and/or a patient advocate in the New York State Department of Health or Medicare. The surgery center will respond in writing with notice of how the grievance has been addressed. Should you be unable to exercise these rights on your own, please have your authorized representative do so on your behalf.
