Inland Receives Women's Choice Award

Release Date: 03/30/2015

Inland Hospital has received the 2015 Women’s Choice Award® as an America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics. This evidence-based designation is the only award that identifies the country’s best healthcare institutions based on robust criteria that consider female patient satisfaction, clinical excellence, and what women say they want from a hospital. It is the third time in three years that Inland Hospital has earned the award.

“We are so pleased to receive the America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics award,” says John Dalton, Inland Hospital President/CEO. “Our providers and staff at Inland, our Birthing Center and Inland Women’s Health Care certainly deserve the national recognition for ensuring that the birthing experience is comfortable, safe and focused on the mother and her family’s choices.”

“New moms have many choices when it comes to obstetrics. Now they can make informed decisions based on the recommendations of other moms who have experienced that hospital first hand,” says Delia Passi, CEO and Founder of the Women’s Choice Award, and former publisher of Working Woman and Working Mother magazines. “Most importantly, when a woman sees the Women’s Choice Award at her local hospital, she’ll know the hospital values her experience as a critical component of care for her and her loved ones,” added Passi.

The America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics scoring process is unique in that it is the only national list that focuses on female patient satisfaction. Only the hospitals who qualify for this highly selective designation provide the highest level of obstetric services based on their exceptional scores for patient recommendation, as provided by data reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys, as well as an analysis that weighs criteria identified as the most important to women for patient satisfaction, including early elective deliveries.
