Upland, CA (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
San Antonio Community Hospital (SACH) 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.
“San Antonio Community Hospital is honored to receive the Women’s Choice Award. This distinction recognizes our commitment to providing exceptional care in a healing environment designed to both comfort and cure. Our dedication to improving the community’s health is our life’s legacy,” states Mr. Harris Koenig, President and CEO of SACH. “We are proud to have some of the best surgeons, nurses, physical therapists, and support staff in the region. Their exceptional skill and compassionate care have made this patient quality award possible.”
“To be recognized by WomenCertified is a wonderful affirmation of the excellent orthopedic care I know we are providing our patients,” states Dr. Jay Shah, Orthopedic Surgeon and Chairman of SACH’s Orthopedic Division. “Our highly skilled team employs the latest technological advances to achieve the best possible outcomes for our orthopedic patients.”
Women make 90 percent of healthcare decisions for themselves and their families, according to a study published by the American Academy of Family Physicians, and over 91% of women feel that 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, San Antonio Community Hospital 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 had a personal experience at 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.
