A Consumer Reports study released Tuesday finds New Yorkers are unhappy with more than half of the city's hospitals.
A total of 43 hospitals across the five boroughs were part of the study which included more than 3,400 nationwide.
According to the report, 24 scored below the national average of 65 in overall patient satisfaction. Only three -- Hospital for Special Surgery, New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Montefiore Medical Center -- scored above the national average.
Researchers conducted the study based on responses from more than a million patients throughout the country. They rated the hospitals in eight areas of satisfaction, including communication patients had with nurses and doctors, and staff attentiveness.
