The Women’s Choice Award is the only recognition program that honors hospitals for excelling in meeting the needs and preferences of women. This award signifies Doctors Hospital’s commitment and passion for creating an extraordinary healthcare experience for women and their families.
“The award is based on robust criteria that consider patient satisfaction, clinical excellence and what women really want when it comes to treatment and a quality hospital experience,” says Delia Passi, CEO & Founder of WomenCertified Inc., home of the Women’s Choice Award. “Doctors Hospital not only performed well clinically with regard to emergency care measures, but they also have a high recommendation rating, which is very important to women when it comes to health related decisions.”
Hospitals earning the Emergency Care Award consistently rank in the top 25 percent of the 3,600 hospitals reporting on their emergency department’s performance to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
“This is a great accomplishment for our staff,” said Doug Welch, President & CEO of Doctors Hospital. “Working together, our physicians, nurses and support staff provide high quality emergency care to our community. Doctors Hospital has the shortest wait times in town and it’s always nice to be recognized for the effort we put in to make sure our patients receive the best and most timely care possible.”
As the collective voice of female consumers, the Women’s Choice Award provides women with recommendations they can trust, from other women.
“Our mission is to reduce the risk for women and their families so they can make smarter healthcare choices,” added Passi. “We have found that recommendations are the single most important consideration used by women in selecting a hospital for themselves and their family. By helping women know which hospitals in their area provide the best critical care, we are able to help them make better decisions, especially when it comes to emergency situations,” concluded Passi.
