About Christine Pereira

Christine came to Southcoast as a labor and delivery nurse at Charlton Memorial Hospital in 2004, the year she graduated from Worcester State University. She has been with Southcoast ever since — caring for newborns and their moms. In addition to her work as a labor and delivery RN, Christine has also served as an RN in OB/GYN offices within the Southcoast Health System since 2008.

She completed her clinical training while she pursued her master’s degree to become a certified nurse midwife. In 2012 she obtained her CNM certification from the University of Cincinnati, which has allowed Christine to provide an even higher level of care to her patients. Her expertise ranges from managing fertility treatments, to providing prenatal care, to assisting in C-sections.

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
