Women's Choice Award(R) Announces the 2015 America's 100 Best Hospitals for Patient Experience 

HOLLYWOOD, Fla., Sept. 04, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Women’s Choice Award celebrates its fifth anniversary recognizing America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Patient Experience, which is the only national list that focuses on female patient satisfaction and recommendation scores. Initiated in 2010, this list was created to help women identify which hospitals deliver the best patient experience for women and their families.



An elite group of U.S. hospitals were awarded the designation – America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Patient Experience. The qualification process begins with scores derived for each hospital from the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) database. The score focuses on a subset of HCAHPS questions, which research and experience show are more important to women than to men. Weight is applied to each of those questions to adjust for relative importance in order to arrive at a numerical score. The scoring is objective and uniform. The best 100 scores in each of the four bed size categories determine the America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Patient Experience Women’s Choice Award recipients.
