January 12, 2017
Gibson Area Hospital has been named as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics by the Women’s Choice Award®, America’s trusted referral source for the best in healthcare. The award signifies that Gibson Area Hospital is in the top 17% of 2,815 U.S. hospitals offering obstetrics.
The methodology for America’s Best Hospital for Obstetrics Award is unique in that it combines national accreditations, Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results and hospital outcome scores with primary research about women’s healthcare preferences. It is the only award recognizing excellence in obstetric services based on robust criteria that consider patient satisfaction and clinical excellence.
-The percentage of patients reporting through the HCAHPS survey that they would definitely recommend the hospital
-Patient safety ranking based on 11 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ measures of infection and complication rates
"Pregnancy is one of the most special times in a woman’s life," said Delia Passi founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award. "Our award gives a woman the confidence that her choice of a hospital for her delivery will be the best in terms of quality care and patient safety for her and her baby. As the trend of women waiting longer to start their families continues, having the Women’s Choice Award seal is especially important for older moms who face increased risk and need a top hospital to provide her care."
Gibson Area Hospital is one of 484 award recipients representing the hospitals that have met the highest standards for obstetrics across the U.S.
"For the fourth time Gibson Area Hospital has been honored to be named one of the Best Hospitals for Obstetrics by Women’s Choice," said GAHHS CEO Rob Schmitt. "This award is a true testament to our wonderful physicians, staff and volunteer that make every patient experience an exceptional one. This national recognition proves to us that GAHHS is living its Vison, to be THE Model of Excellence in Rural Healthcare."
