FirstLight Health System Earns the Women’s Choice Award for Region’s Best Hospitals
Date:5/30/2013

Mora, MN (PRWEB) May 30, 2013

FirstLight Health System received the Women’s Choice Award® from WomenCertified, distinguishing it as a 2013 Region's Best Hospital for Patient Experience serving the counties of Pine, Chisago, Isanti, Mille Lacs and Kanabec. The award is based on robust criteria that consider female patient satisfaction and what women say they want from a hospital including quality physician communications, responsiveness of nurses and support staff, cleanliness and trusted referrals from other women. WomenCertified awards products and services based on the collective recommendations of women and serves to empower women to make smart healthcare choices.

“We are so excited and honored to receive the Women’s Choice Region’s Best Award. Receiving this award validates the quality of care we provide to women in our communities and confirms to our patients that FirstLight is the preferred health care provider for all their needs,” said Randy Ulseth, CEO of FirstLight Health System. “The award is also a testament to the commitment and dedication of FirstLight team who impact patients’ lives every day.”

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. As a Region’s Best Hospital for Patient Experience, FirstLight Health System 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 healthcare. 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 award based on an objective proprietary scoring process. The scoring incorporates a national, standardized survey of patients' perspectives of hospital care reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) and an analysis that weighs criteria identified as the most important to women for patient satisfaction. Additionally, the scoring incorporates 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
