The Bellevue Hospital has received the 2018 Women’s Choice Award® ranking among America's Best Hospitals for Patient Experience in Obstetrics. The distinction is the only award that identifies the country's best healthcare institutions based on criteria that consider female patient satisfaction, clinical excellence, and what women say they want from a hospital, including quality physician communications, responsiveness of nurses and support staff, cleanliness and trusted referrals from other women. This award signifies that The Bellevue Hospital is in the top 17% of 2,720 U.S. hospitals offering obstetrics.
Hospitals qualify for this highly selective annual list of America's Best Hospitals for Patient Experience in Obstetrics based on a proprietary scoring process that incorporates a national, standardized survey of patients' perspectives of hospital care reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as well as an analysis that weighs criteria identified as the most important to women for patient satisfaction.
“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.”
The Bellevue Hospital is one of 452 award recipients representing the hospitals that have met the highest standards for obstetrics across the U.S.
We are honored that The Bellevue Hospital's Family Birthing Center is a recipient of the Women's Choice Award, distinguishing it as one of the best hospitals for patient care in obstetrics," said Michael K. Winthrop, President and CEO of The Bellevue Hospital. "This award demonstrates that our Family Birthing Center team is committed to providing exceptional service during one of the most pivotal moment's in a woman's life."
