Denver, CO — Rose Medical Center has again been named one of America's 100 Best Hospitals for Patient Experience by the Women's Choice Award®, America's trusted referral source for the best in healthcare. The award signifies that Rose Medical Center has been ranked within the top 100 hospitals of similar size based on number of beds.
The methodology used to select Rose Medical Center as one of America's 100 Best Hospitals for Patient Experience is unique in that it evaluates specific Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results along with primary research about women's healthcare preferences.
The Women's Choice Award collects the data for the following HCAHPS survey measures and uses a weighted average to award the best hospitals for patient experience:
- Effective communication with nurses and doctors
- Responsiveness to requests for help
- Pain management
- Explanation about medications before being administered
- Bathroom and room cleanliness
- Patient recommendation rating
According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, good patient experience positively correlates to disease management, adherence to treatment plans and health outcomes.
Rose Medical Center is one of 400 award recipients representing the hospitals that have met the highest standards for patient experience in the U.S. by the Women's Choice Award. The hospital also earned 2019 Women's Choice Awards for America's Best Hospitals for Bariatric Surgery, Obstetrics, Heart Care, Emergency Care, Cancer Care, Breast Center and Stroke Center.
"We believe that being known for excellent patient experiences is a crucial marker of an outstanding hospital," says Ryan Tobin, Rose's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our team works together every day to help ensure patients are receiving world-class care and we are so appreciative that our patients have recognized it and we are honored with this award."
