WomenCertified, Inc. Honored Brookings Health as One of the Best for Patient Experience

Brookings Health System was awarded its second Women’s Choice award for this year. WomenCertified, Inc., named Brookings Health System as one of the 2014 America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Patient Experience.

The Women’s Choice Award is based on a variety of survey results analyzing important criteria such as communication with doctors and room cleanliness. The award recognizes the important factors that play a role in a woman’s choice of hospital including communication with nurses and noise level in the rooms.

In 2014 Brookings Health System ranked 50 out of the top 100 hospitals, a substantial move forward in just a few short years since the award originated in 2011.

The Women’s Choice Award is a seal reserved for hospitals across America who partner with WomenCertified, Inc. which works to empower women to make smart healthcare choices. The award remains the only honor that identifies the country’s best healthcare institutions based on robust 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.
