Some exciting news just came in on the press wire. We are proud to announce we were voted one of the Top 100 Hospitals in the U.S. by WomenCertified.com. This was an unexpected honor and it’s a great testament to our doctors, medical staff and hospital employees who are always working to provide patient care, second to none.
Townshend VT – Grace Cottage Hospital has been named one of the nation’s Top 100 Hospitals for Patient Experience by WomenCertified®, based on female patient satisfaction. WomenCertified is an organization committed to helping women identify hospitals that value the patient experience and value the needs of female patients.
Hospitals do not apply for this award, but are selected for this prestigious annual list based on a scoring process that incorporates Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) scores along with an additional level of analysis that weighs criteria identified as the most important to women.
Grace Cottage Hospital and Fletcher Allen Health Care were the two Vermont hospitals recognized because of their high patient satisfaction scores. “Everyone who works here at Grace Cottage goes beyond patient care,” said Grace Cottage CEO Mick Brant, “and we
are pleased that patients recognize this when they fill out their patient satisfaction surveys.
It’s an honor to be recognized in this way, and also to be a Women’s Choice Award
“Women make or influence more than 85% of all healthcare decisions for themselves
and their families,” said Delia Passi, CEO and founder of WomenCertified® and former
publisher of Working Mother and Working Women magazines. “Recognizing the
top hospitals nationwide that are women-friendly and align with women’s identified
preferences is important to our mission at WomenCertified, where we are women helping
women make smart choices.” For more information, visit www.womencertified.com.
