In a descriptive study to determine the degree of satisfaction with hospital services at a hospital in the Mayagüez area, three hypothesis were formulated: 1) differences exist in clients satisfaction and the way they are care for by hospital personnel, 2) in a general way, hospital facilities influence clients satisfaction, and 3) the higher the communication, the higher the degree of clients satisfaction. A convenient sample of 51 participants was selected. The instrument for data collection used was the Key Quality Characteristic Assessment for Hospitals (KQCAH) which identifies eight factors: 1) respect and care, 2) effectiveness and continuity, 3) convenience 4) information 5) efficiency 6) food, 7) first impression and 8) personnel diversity.

The variables communications and clients satisfaction showed not a significant relationship.
