Catawba Valley Medical Center Earns the Women’s Choice Award for Excellence in Orthopedics

HICKORY, NC (PRWEB) May 14, 2013

Catawba Valley Medical Center received the Women’s Choice Award® distinguishing it as one of the 2013 America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Experience in Orthopedics. The award is based on robust criteria that include female patient satisfaction measurements as well as clinical excellence considerations. WomenCertified awards products and services based on the collective recommendations of women and serves to empower women to make smart healthcare choices.

“It is a distinct honor for Catawba Valley Medical Center to receive its third Women’s Choice Award and to be designated one of America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Experience in Orthopedics for 2013,” said J. Anthony Rose, President and CEO of CVMC.

Women make 90 percent of health care decisions for themselves and their families, according to a study published by the American Academy of Family Physicians. And over 91% of women feel like marketers and businesses don’t understand them.

“We provide women with a trusted third party endorsement based on hospital experiences by women in their community and back that with clinical data to empower them to make smarter healthcare choices. As one of the America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Experience in Orthopedics, Catawba Valley Medical Center meets the toughest standards of excellence set by women,” states Delia Passi, CEO and founder of WomenCertified and former publisher of Working Woman and Working Mother magazines. “Women have many choices when it comes to Orthopedics. Now they can make informed choices based on the recommendations of women who have experienced that hospital. Most importantly, when a woman sees the Women’s Choice Award at her local hospital, she’ll know the hospital values her experience as a critical component of care for her and her loved ones.”

Hospitals qualify for this highly selective annual list based on an in-depth proprietary scoring process. The scoring utilizes data reported by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The selection process identifies those hospitals that provide comprehensive orthopedic services, and that meet criteria for patient satisfaction and surgical excellence based on female needs and preferences.
