Butler Memorial Hospital has been named a recipient of the 2015 Women’s
Choice Award® as one of America’s Best Hospital’s for
Orthopedics, providing exceptional patient care and treatment. By carrying
the Women’s Choice Award seal, BMH has joined an elite network of
hospitals committed to a global mission to empower women, serving as an
example to all hospitals while setting new standards of healthcare excellence
for women, their families, and their community.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 719,000 total
knee replacements and 332,000 total hip replacements were performed in
2010. In 2014, The National Osteoporosis Foundation reported that a woman’s
risk of hip fracture is equal to her combined risk of breast, uterine
and ovarian cancer (NOF 2014, “What Women Need to Know”).
The Women’s Choice Award identifies America’s Best Hospitals
in Orthopedics in order to address the growing need for bone and joint
care, and disease prevention.
“Being treated with the proper level of care impacts one’s
health, well-being, and healing so it is critical for women to know those
hospitals that have demonstrated the highest level of quality care to
their patients, with a special focus on the female experience,”
says Sharyn S. Lee, RN, MS, FACEHP, President of the Healthcare Division
of the Women’s Choice Award. “When patients have a highly
engaged, positive experience with their hospital, it’s a win-win
situation,” added Lee.
Hospitals qualify as an America’s Best Hospital for Orthopedics based
on an in-depth proprietary scoring process, utilizing data reported by the
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. As one of America’s Best Hospitals for Orthopedics, Butler Memorial
Hospital was selected due to their excellent rating in areas such as post-treatment
complications, patient recommendation ratings, availability of microscopic
surgery and adequate post-surgical care.
According to a study by the
National Research Corporation Market Insights Survey, the largest healthcare consumer survey in the U.S., a hospital’s
reputation is everything. Being recognized as a hospital of choice among
women takes the commitment of leadership and staff and ongoing devotion
to providing every patient with optimal care. The Women’s Choice
Award is a beacon to women, demonstrating that Butler Memorial Hospital
has met rigorous criteria for clinical best practices and earned higher
than average patient recommendation and satisfaction scores. Women can
then trust the hospitals that carry the Women’s Choice Award seal,
as they enable her to simplify her selection process.
“A woman expects more from a hospital experience and takes her role
as the primary healthcare decision maker seriously,” notes Delia
Passi, Founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award. “More
than ever she is self-managing her care by choosing her hospital prior
to selecting her doctors. This allows her more control over her hospital
stay outcome based on the quality of care she can expect from a Women’s
Choice Award hospital.”
