ROSE MEDICAL CENTER RECEIVES 2015 WOMEN’S CHOICE AWARD® AS AN AMERICA’S BEST BREAST CENTER

DENVER – March 10, 2015 – Rose Medical Center has earned the 2015 Women’s Choice Award® as one of America’s Best Breast Centers, acknowledging its dedication to providing exceptional patient care and treatment. Breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer among American women according to the American Cancer Society, and one in eight women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime.

By carrying the evidence-based designation of the Women’s Choice Award seal, Rose has signified its commitment to elevate the patient experience for women and all patients as one of more than 315 America’s Best Breast Centers.

“Every two minutes a woman in the U.S. is diagnosed with breast cancer, and she needs to know which breast centers she can trust to navigate this uncertain path,” says Delia Passi, CEO & founder of WomenCertified, home of the Women’s Choice Award. “Breast care is extremely vital to women’s health, and we want them to know that Rose has met the highest standards in caring for the needs of their female patients. The Women’s Choice Award is the only program that identifies the nation’s best in healthcare based on patient satisfaction, clinical excellence and what women really want when it comes to treatment and a quality medical experience.”

Rose earned the award by meeting the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) standards from the American College of Surgeons. The NAPBC is a consortium of national, professional organizations focused on breast health and dedicated to the improvement of quality care and outcomes of patients with diseases of the breast through evidence-based standards and patient and professional education. As one of America’s Best Breast Centers, Rose also carries the seal of the American College of Radiologists as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, and scored above-average on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services patient satisfaction measures.

“Rose is proud to be named among the best breast centers in the country, and earning this distinction shows that we are committed to providing top-notch care to all of our patients,” says Ken Feiler, President & CEO of Rose Medical Center. “We recognize that exceptional breast care has a significant impact on a woman’s overall health—that’s why the Rose Breast Center is a well-known institution in our community and a destination center for women.”

The Women’s Choice Award helps women and their families by providing recommendations they can trust and use when making healthcare choices.

“We have found that recommendations are the single most important consideration used by women in selecting a hospital or care center,” added Passi. “By letting women know which breast centers in their area are among America’s best, we are able to reduce risk by helping them make better decisions and smarter healthcare choices.”

As the collective voice of female consumers, the Women’s Choice Award provides women with recommendations from other women that they can rely upon. The full list of awarded breast centers is available at http://www.womenschoiceaward.com/awarded/best-hospitals/breast-centers/.
