Quality Hospital Gift Shops & Health Care Stores Raise Satisfaction Scores

With healthcare in the daily news reports, hospitals strive to improve their public image.  While
Service Excellence Programs include gift stores they may not be factored in to patient satisfaction
scores. Research shows that a positive retail experience impacts patient satisfaction. Top scoring
hospitals are implementing Service Excellence Programs that improve customer service
operations by merchandising to the mission, training employees and modernizing shops.
Improvement of customer driven services affect the hospital experience, retains customer
loyalty and, ultimately, hospital profitability.
