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
