The Women’s Hospital has been named one of America’s Best Breast Centers by the Women’s Choice Award®
, America’s trusted referral source for the best in healthcare. The award signifies that The Women’s Hospital is in the top 7% of 4,789 U.S. hospitals offering breast care services.
According to the American Cancer Society
, about 1 in 8 women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime, and it is the second leading cause of cancer death in women.
“We are honored to receive national recognition for our breast center,” said Christina Ryan, CEO, The Women’s Hospital. “To provide women with the most comprehensive screening, diagnosis, and treatment program, we assembled a multi-disciplinary team that includes surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, pharmacists, social workers and others. They work together to create a personalized treatment plan for each patient.” The multi-disciplinary team supports patients who have an abnormal mammogram or related exam.
The list of 352 award winners, including The Women’s Hospital, represents breast centers that have met the highest standards of breast care in the nation as set by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) and carry the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) seal from the American College of Radiology.
The methodology used to select award winners is unique in that it evaluates Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results
along with primary research about women’s healthcare preferences.
“As a breast cancer survivor, I learned the hard way that where you choose to have your mammogram can have a profound impact on your outcome and experience,” said Delia Passi, founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award. “We empower women to make educated, confident decisions about their health,” said Passi. “By identifying America’s Best Breast Centers, we’re helping women find the top accredited centers in their communities.”
