Women's Choice Award Honors Orthopedics Hospitals Most Recommended by Women

HOLLYWOOD, FL (PRWEB) May 01, 2013

WomenCertified®, the home of the Women’s Choice Award, has announced its list of America’s Best Hospitals for Orthopedics. This hospital designation is based on robust criteria that include female patient satisfaction measurements as well as clinical excellence considerations.

The announcement of the America’s Best Hospitals for Orthopedics is timely as today is the first day of National Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month. In women over 45 years of age, osteoporosis accounts for more days spent in the hospital than many other diseases, including diabetes, myocardial infarction and breast cancer according to the International Osteoporosis Foundation. “This award was created to empower women to make smart healthcare choices and to build her confidence in hospitals delivering a trusted healthcare experience rated by women. And considering 200 million women worldwide will be affected by bone health issues this is an important opportunity for us as consumer advocates to help her find trusted sources for bone care,” says Delia Passi, CEO of WomenCertified and former publisher of Working Mother magazine.

Hospitals qualify for this highly selective annual list 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 and clinical criteria. 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.

“We are proud of those hospitals recognized for taking ownership of their customer experience and creating an environment that offers the best in healthcare services. We congratulate our winning hospitals for having earned the trust of our country’s most significant consumer group,” said Passi.
