Best Hospital Around

Nephi, UT, May 9, 2017 – Central Valley Medical Center 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 Central Valley Medical Center has been ranked within the top 100 hospitals of similar size based on number of beds.

The methodology used to select Central Valley 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.

“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.”

Central Valley 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.

“I am proud of our hospital employees and medical staff for receiving the 2017 Women’s Choice Award for Best Patient Experience,” said Central Valley Medical Center’s Chief Operating Officer, Randy Cuff. “We strive to provide quality services and the best care available to our patients. As a not-for-profit hospital, we are grateful for our community support in helping us receive this award.”
