Parkview Medical Center Receives the 2016 Women’s Choice Award® as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care 

Parkview Medical Center has received the 2016 Women’s Choice Award® as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care . This evidence-based designation is the only heart care award that identifies the country’s best healthcare institutions based on robust criteria that considers female patient satisfaction, clinical excellence, and what women say they want from a hospital.

The list of 352 award winners, including Parkview, represents hospitals that not only performed well clinically with regard to heart care measures, but also had a high recommendation rate, a measure that is very important to women when choosing a hospital; signifying  Parkview’s commitment to meeting the highest standards in heart care.

“The Parkview Family is thrilled to be recognized by Women’s Choice Award as an America’s Best Hospital for Heart Care for the second year,” explained Mike Baxter, Parkview Medical Center President and CEO. “We pride ourselves in providing southern Colorado with exceptional cardiac care and this recognition validates our efforts.”

The 2016 America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care list is determined by first identifying hospitals across the nation that offer a minimum number of cardiac and/or vascular services. Only hospitals that perform well clinically with regard to heart care measures reported to Medicare, and also have a high Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) recommendation score, are selected. Data provided is totally objective and uniform. No subjective considerations are used to determine the award recipients.

 “Considering heart disease is the number one killer of women across the country, helping her find the best in cardiac care is how we empower women and hospitals to live better lives,” says Delia Passi, CEO and Founder of the Women’s Choice Award.
