Inland Hospital Among America's Best Hospitals for Orthopedics

Date Given: 5/24/2016 12:00:00 AM

Inland Hospital has been named a 2016 America’s Best Hospitals for Orthopedics by Women’s Choice Award®. This evidence-based designation is the only orthopedics 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.

Inland Hospital is proud to highlight Inland Orthopedics, Inland Foot and Ankle, and all the surgeons, and practice and hospital staff who made this recognition possible and are dedicated to putting patients first every day.

The list of 426 award winners, including Inland Hospital, represents hospitals that have provided exceptional patient care and treatment, signifying Inland’s commitment to meeting the highest standards in orthopedics for women, their families and their community.

The 2016 America’s Best Hospitals for Orthopedics are hospitals that provide comprehensive orthopedics services, indicating a minimal number of arthroscopy, joint replacements and spine surgery services, as well as offering onsite MRI and physical therapy. These full service hospitals are then judged based on their results through the Hospital Consumer Assessment for Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey for patient recommendations and post-operative recovery instructions, measures that are very important to women when choosing a hospital.

Hospitals could be disqualified for abnormally high rates of surgical complications and infections. Data made available by the CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) is utilized in a method that is totally objective and uniform. No subjective considerations were used to determine the award winners.

“Being treated with the proper level of care impacts one’s health, well-being, and healing so it is critical for women to know those hospitals that have demonstrated the highest level of quality care for their patients, with a special focus on the needs and preferences of women,” says Delia Passi, CEO and Founder of the Women’s Choice Award.
