Three Quorum Health Resources (QHR) client hospitals were recently named by The Women's Choice Award as America's Best Hospitals for Patient Experience: CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System (Texarkana, TX), King's Daughters Medical Center (Brookhaven, MS) and Wooster Community Hospital (Wooster, OH). King's Daughters Medical Center was also awarded with Women's Choice Awards for America's Best Hospitals for Emergency Care and America's Best Hospitals for Obstetrics.
According to the Women's Choice Award website, surveys of patients across America demonstrate that these hospitals earn the Women's Choice Award because of their high patient care standards and appreciation of the unique healthcare needs of women.
"These hospitals are leading the way in healthcare excellence for women, their families and their communities," said QHR President and CEO James L. Horrar. "We are proud to see QHR client hospitals recognized for awards focused on putting patients first and providing quality care."
For the third consecutive year, CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System was honored with the award. "We are honored to be named as an America's Best Hospital for the third consecutive year. This recognition validates that our mission is alive and well as we continue to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ," said Chris Karam, FACHE, President and CEO of CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System.
“Strong clinical performance and excellent patient care is what we strive to achieve every single day,” explained Alvin Hoover, CEO of QHR client hospital King's Daughters Medical Center (KDMC). "This award recognizes our passion, dedication and commitment to our mission of providing quality health and wellness in a Christian environment."
Also an award recipient, Wooster Community Hospital CEO Bill Sheron said, "Being selected again among this prestigious group of hospitals is a testament to the hard work of our entire staff and leadership. We are devoted to providing every patient with optimal care and are pleased to be recognized for doing that."
The Women's Choice Award is meant to represent the significance of the female consumer and their collective voice in recommending brands, products and services. According to the Women's Choice Award website, the America's 100 Best Hospitals scores are derived for each hospital from the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) database.
