It they don’t remember us, why would they come back to our hospital?”-Fred Lee “If Disney ran your hospital, you would make courtesy more important than efficiency. By making courtesy more important than efficiency, you would be putting corporate values in line with what patients have indicated as the key drivers of their satisfaction and loyalty.” –Fred Lee

14 Employee Satisfaction “Employees need to believe that their organization has the right purpose. They want to know that their job is worthwhile. They want to make a difference. The best ways to help staff understand the importance of their actions and behaviors are to always connect back to purpose, communicate at all levels, and recognize behaviors you want to be repeated,”-Quint Studer

Leaders play a critical role in ensuring the five main physician satisfiers are hardwired: Quality Efficiency Input Appreciation Telling the truth Quint Studer, “Hardwiring Excellence”
