Hospitals are selected for this prestigious annual list based on a proprietary scoring process that incorporates Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) scores along with a higher level of analysis that weighs criteria identified as the most important to women for patient satisfaction. Additionally, it takes into consideration WomenCertified’s in-depth research on customer satisfaction among women, including a joint study on customer satisfaction by gender conducted with the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
“Thousand Oaks Surgical Hospital is honored to be recognized as a hospital that understands and meets the unique needs of women. We challenge ourselves to exceed the high standards that women should come to expect in patient care,” stated Bob Shaw, CEO TOSH. “It is the mission of TOSH to provide the highest quality patient experience to each patient we have the privilege to serve.”
As America’s Best Hospital for Patient Experience, and because of its high consumer satisfaction scores, WomenCertified is delighted to further honor Thousand Oaks Surgical Hospital with the Women’s Choice Award. Women are empowered to make better choices by having a Seal that represents the collective opinion of women who highly recommend that brand, service or hospital.
