Parrish Medical Center Earns the Women's Choice Award for Excellence in Orthopedics

Updated:

TITUSVILLE, Fla. - Selection of Parrish Medical Center on list of “America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Experience in Orthopedics” is based on women’s preferences, recommendation rating and clinical excellence

Parrish Medical Center received the Women’s Choice Award® distinguishing it as one of the 2013 America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Experience in Orthopedics. The award is based on robust criteria that include female patient satisfaction measurements as well as clinical excellence considerations. WomenCertified awards products and services based on the collective recommendations of women and serves to empower women to make smart healthcare choices.

 “This honor is a reflection of the more than 1,200 PMC care partners (employees, volunteers and physicians) who dedicate their lives to fulfilling our mission of providing healing experiences to everyone all the time,” said PMC President/CEO George Mikitarian. “I am incredibly proud of our orthopedic care team whose unwavering commitment has once again been recognized for excellence in women’s health.”

 Women make 90 percent of health care decisions for themselves and their families, according to a study published by the American Academy of Family Physicians. And over 91 percent of women feel that marketers and businesses don’t understand them.

 “We provide women with a trusted third-party endorsement based on hospital experiences by women in their community and back that with clinical data to empower them to make smarter healthcare choices. As one of the America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Experience in Orthopedics, Parrish Medical Center meets the toughest standards of excellence set by women” states Delia Passi, CEO and founder of WomenCertified, and former publisher of Working Woman and Working Mother magazines. “Women have many choices when it comes to Orthopedics. Now they can make informed choices based on the recommendations of women who have experienced that hospital. Most importantly, when a woman sees the Women’s Choice Award at her local hospital, she’ll know the hospital values her experience as a critical component of care for her and her loved ones.”

Hospitals qualify for this highly selective annual list based on an in-depth proprietary scoring process. The scoring utilizes data reported by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The selection process identifies those hospitals that provide comprehensive orthopedic services, and that meet criteria for patient satisfaction and surgical excellence based on female needs and preferences.
