Syracuse, NY (January 7, 2019) –St. Joseph’s Health Hospital has been named as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics and one of America’s Best Hospitals for Orthopedics by the Women’s Choice Award®, America’s trusted referral source for the best in healthcare. The award signifies that St. Joseph’s Health Hospital is one of the top healthcare providers in the country based on a review of nearly 5,000 hospitals.
St. Joseph’s Health is the only hospital in Onondaga County to earn these awards. This is the second year in a row that St. Joseph’s Health has received the Orthopedics award, and the third year in a row that they have received the Obstetrics award.
The methodology for the America’s Best Hospitals is unique in that it combines national accreditations, Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results and hospital outcome scores with primary research about women’s healthcare preferences. It is the only award recognizing excellence in patient services based on robust criteria that consider patient satisfaction and clinical excellence. Additionally, each service line award has supplementary criteria that are specific to the service line. For a full list of award methodology, visit Women’s Choice Award methodology page.
