“Being recognized for what you do – and how well you do it – by the very consumers you are in the business of serving is an incredible accolade,” said Cathie Brazell, assistant vice president of clinical operations at GMC. “Sensitivity, safety and patient care have always been and will continue to be our hallmarks as we care for families during this very special time.” 

“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.
