We appreciate your feedback and value your opinion. Your feedback helps us to improve our patient care and services. If you have any question or complaint about any services provided by Adena Health System, we encourage you to talk with your doctor, nurse, or the manager of the department or office where you are receiving services.

What should I do if I have a complaint or concern?

If the issue is not resolved to your satisfaction, please call our Patient Comment line at 740-779-7364 or 1-877-779-7364. Please be assured that bringing your issue to our attention will not result in any form of retaliation or barrier to receiving services.

For billing questions or concerns please call our Customer Service department at 855-275-7408. If the Customer Service specialist is unable to assist you with your billing concerns, it will be escalated to the next level of support which is our Resolution Team. 

Do I have to file a formal complaint if I call?

No. Many patients simply request assistance with an issue. The patient reserves the right to file a formal complaint if they so desire.

Will my conversation with the Patient Advocate be confidential?

Yes, we will not investigate without the patient’s permission unless serious safety concerns exist.
