Louisville, Colorado (PRWEB) January 22, 2013

Avista Adventist Hospital has been named among the Top 100 Hospitals for Patient Experience by WomenCertified®.

The award is based on criteria that consider what women say they want from a hospital including quality physician communications, responsiveness of nurses and support staff, cleanliness and trusted referrals from other women.

“Our team insists on paying attention to the little things that make a big difference and make our patients feel safe and comfortable,” says Chief Executive Officer John Sackett. “Receiving this kind of endorsement from women, the major health care decision-makers, acknowledges our commitment to listening to our patients.”

Hospitals qualify for this annual list based on a proprietary scoring process that incorporates a national, standardized survey of patients’ perspectives of hospital care reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) and an analysis that weighs criteria identified as the most important to women for patient satisfaction.

Additionally, the scoring incorporates WomenCertified´s research on customer satisfaction among women, including a joint study on customer satisfaction by gender conducted with the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. The 100 best scores in four hospital-size categories determine the Award winners, which can be found at http://www.womencertified.com.
