Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital named one of America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics

01/27/2016
Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital has received the 2016 Women’s Choice Award® as one of 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.

The more than 400 award winners, including Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital’s Family Birth Center, offer exceptional obstetric services that rank above the national average for patient safety, an important component in a woman’s decision in choosing the best facility for her maternity needs.

“Earning the America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics award is a testament to the dedication, compassion, knowledge and skill of every physician, advanced care practitioner, nurse and staff member within the Family Birth Center, and indeed throughout Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital,” said David Chen, MD, FACP, Interim Dyad President & CEO, Chief Medical Officer. “This honor is a tribute to the team‐based efforts of all devoted to ensuring each of our expectant and new mothers receives safe, top‐quality care in every situation.”

The America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics scoring process is the only evidence‐based national list that focuses on female patient satisfaction. Winning hospitals rank above the national average for patient recommendations, as indicated by the data reported in Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys. Additional considerations included low rates of early elective deliveries (between 0‐1%) and ranking above the national average for patient safety.

“New moms have many choices when it comes to having their baby, so choosing the best birthing experience is right up there with choosing the best doctor,” said Delia Passi, CEO and founder of the Women’s Choice Award. “We’ve made it easy for moms to vet out the hospitals proven to deliver an outstanding experience.”
