Being a good patient does not mean being a silent one. If you have questions,
problems, suggestions or unmet needs, please let us know immediately.
You can contact the patient representative at the Meadville Medical Center
(MMC) Guest Services office at (814) 333-5580 or e-mail

Your Patient Representative
The patient has a right to express concerns or ask questions through a
patient representative. In most cases, by voicing concerns directly to
hospital staff, issues can be resolved quickly and effectively without
the need for a formal review. If the staff is unable to resolve the concern,
the patient is encouraged to contact Guest Services at (814) 333-5580.
If the patient representative in Guest Services cannot resolve the concern,
it will be referred to a Grievance Committee, which will conduct an investigation.
If the Grievance Committee cannot reach a satisfactory outcome, the patient
or legal representative can contact an outside agency such as the State
Department of Health, P.O. Box 90, Harrisburg, PA 17108 or call 1-800-254-5164.
The patient representatives also assists with:
- Living wills and powers of attorney
- Reading and responding to patient surveys
- Controlling the lost and found of the hospital
- Conducting notary public services
Patients after receiving care at MMC are surveyed to provide feedback and
to benchmark nationally with similar hospitals. This information is then
utilized for process improvement at MMC. Ask if you have questions about
the feedback process.
