Patient rights are as important to us as they are to our patients. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with these rights if you are going to be a patient here at Mission Hospital.

Reporting concerns

Your quality care and safety is important to us. If you have any unresolved complaints regarding patient care or safety issues, you may report your complaints by doing the following:

  1. Report your complaints directly to the department director or the administrator on-call. Dial "0" on any hospital phone or call 828-213-1111 from an outside phone, and ask for the "Administrator On-call".
  2. Report your complaints online through our 'Contact Us' page.
  3. You will receive a prompt response to your concern.

If your concerns cannot be resolved by Mission Health, you may report them to our accrediting body or the state agency listed below:
