Thanks to hard work and dedicated care from its doctors, nurses, technicians and staff, Fairview Southdale Hospital was recently announced as one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Patient Experience by the Women’s Choice Award.
This award recognizes Fairview Southdale’s commitment to creating an extraordinary patient experience for women and their families by providing exceptional care. Some of the most important considerations for the award were patients’ willingness to recommend, doctor and nurse communications, staff help, pain management, cleanliness and explanation of medications—categories in which Fairview Southdale excels.
Women’s Choice Awards are determined by a national survey of more than 1,000 women, in addition to Medicare data.
“Women are the Chief Medical Officer for the household, making upwards of 90 percent of all health care decisions,” says Delia Passi, CEO and founder of the Women’s Choice Award. “Considering she bears the responsibility of making these incredibly important decisions, the Women’s Choice Award offers a trusted solution by identifying the hospitals that have proven superior patient experience.”
In addition to high-quality care, Fairview Southdale offers access to more than 40 specialty services. Physician partners from Fairview, independent physicians, Fairview Physician Associates and University of Minnesota Physicians throughout the southwest metro combine their talents at Fairview Southdale to provide exceptional care.
“This award represents the outstanding, compassionate work happening in the various departments and teams throughout our hospital to provide an excellent patient experience,” says Bradley Beard, regional president, south region. “We’re proud to be recognized for our continual efforts toward offering compassionate, quality care to women and families.”
