But it wasn't all good news for Alberta, as Northern Lights Regional Health Centre in Fort McMurray and Bonnyville Health Centre were two of eight facilities in Canada to earn the lowest rating of a D.

The majority of Alberta hospitals that were rated earned a B.

According to the CBC, visitors can rate a hospital in five categories including respect, communication, timeliness, cleanliness and whether they would recommend it.

The tool was launched on Wednesday and has already gathered over 23,000 responses, over 2,000 of which are from Alberta, the CBC adds.
