Cody, Wyoming, – West Park Hospital has 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 West Park Hospital has been ranked within the
top 100 hospitals of similar size based on number of beds.
The methodology used to select West Park Hospital 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.
“This hospital was awarded because it is one of the best at treating
their patients the way their patients want to be treated,” said
Delia Passi, founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award. “Hospital
choice is a critical decision, particularly for women, who make over 80%
of healthcare decisions. Our designation makes it easier for them to choose
a hospital where they and their families are more likely to have a better
experience and outcome.”
West Park Hospital 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.
“This award validates the emphasis all WPH staff place on ensuring
our patients experience exceeds their expectation. It’s our mission
here to provide extraordinary healthcare to those we serve by people who
care and be the first choice for those who aspire to heal, be healed and
lead healthier lives,” Stated Doug McMillan, CEO of West Park Hospital.
