Baptist Medical Center Beaches has received the 2016 Women’s Choice Award® as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics. This evidence-based designation is the only award that identifies the country’s best health care institutions based on robust criteria that consider female patient satisfaction, clinical excellence, and what women say they want from a hospital.
The list of more than 400 award winners, including Baptist Beaches, represents hospitals that offer exceptional obstetric services which ranked above the national average for patient safety, thereby supporting a woman’s decision when choosing the best for her maternity needs.
“This award reaffirms the commitment and dedication of our high-quality physicians and staff at Baptist Beaches. We are fortunate to have such an outstanding team committed to our patients and their precious newborns,” said Hospital President Joe Mitrick.
“New moms have many choices when it comes to having their baby, so choosing the best birthing experience is right up there with choosing the best doctor. We’ve made it easy for moms to vet out the hospitals proven to deliver an outstanding experience,” said Delia Passi, CEO and founder of the Women’s Choice Award.
The America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics scoring process is unique in that it is the only national list that is evidence-based and focuses on female patient satisfaction. Awarded hospitals ranked above the national average for patient recommendations, as indicated by the data reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys. Additional considerations included: an onsite NICU, low rates of early elective deliveries (between 0-1 percent) as well as ranking above the national average for patient safety.
