St. John’s Medical Center has been named one of America’s Best
Hospitals for Patient Experience by the Women’s Choice Award®,
a referral source for healthcare choices based on robust criteria that
consider female patient satisfaction and clinical excellence. The award
ranks St. John’s Medical Center (SJMC) in the top 100 hospitals
of similar size, based on number of beds.
St. John’s Medical Center also made the list of:
- America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics, based on the percentage
of patients who would definitely recommend the hospital, the safety ranking,
the low rate of early elective deliveries, and the best practices for
breast feeding education and support.
- America’s Best Hospitals for Orthopedics, based on high recommendations,
a strong patient safety record, and unified services. This recognition
places St. John’s in the top 11% of 3,230 U.S. hospitals offering
- America’s Best Hospitals for Emergency Care, based on performance
measures reported by CMS that women indicated they value most. This award
places St. John’s in the top 328 hospitals in the nation for emergency care.
“St. John’s has pledged to do our best to provide the highest
possible quality care to the people in Teton County and the surrounding
areas,” said St. John’s CEO Paul Beaupré, MD. “Being
recognized by Women’s Choice for our obstetrical care, emergency
room care, orthopedic care, and patient experience is a way that we validate
that we are fulfilling this commitment. I am so proud of our staff and
their commitment to excellence.”
The methodology used to select St. John’s 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 data from HCAHPS survey measures
and uses a weighted average to award the best hospitals for various services.
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 influence over
90% 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.”
