Geraldton Hospital has been named the most outstanding hospital in regional Australia, after receiving more positive patient feedback than any other facility in the country.

A WA Country Health Service spokeswoman said the result came from patients having overall good experiences, including positive ratings for food, maintenance and interactions with staff.

In 2015, Australian hospitals adopted the Patient Opinion feedback platform.

Since then, Mid West health facilities have received about 138 responses, with close to 100 involving Geraldton Hospital.

The announcement was made at the Australian Patients Association awards overnight.
