Patient Representative Services

Patient Representative

Southwest General strives every day to provide high quality and compassionate patient care.  

If patient expectations or those of their family members are not met, we encourage you to let us know.

When your expectations have not been met, we ask that you:

  • Speak directly to the manager of the department that administered the service. They are directly responsible for the level of patient satisfaction of each patient under their care as well as making sure that the daily operation of their department continually strives for excellence.  
  • Contact our Patient Representative Department. Our Patient Representatives can help if a patient and his or her family are unsure who to contact, or if previous attempts to resolve an issue are unsatisfactory. To receive assistance from dedicated patient representatives, please call:
