Prairie Ridge Health (PRH) is one of 17 Wisconsin hospitals to receive the 2018 Women’s Choice Award for obstetrics.

“The Women’s Choice Award has identified America’s Best Hospitals across the nation to help women make smart healthcare choices,” said Rachel Svendsen, PRH Manager of Women’s and Childbirth Services. “Women account for 90% of all healthcare decisions for themselves and their family. We are honored to be among the elite in patient satisfaction in obstetrics.”

According to the Women’s Choice Award organization, the America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics scoring process is unique in that it is the only national list that is evidence-based and focuses on female patient satisfaction. Awarded hospitals ranked above the national average for patient recommendations, as indicated by the data reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys.

In order to determine those hospitals to be recognized, the organization uses the most recent publicly available information from The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), as well as accreditation information from appropriate sources.

Prairie Ridge Health is located at 1515 Park Avenue in Columbus, WI. For more information call 920-623-2200. For a full list of 2018 Women’s Choice Award recipients visit https://www.womenschoiceaward.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/2018-Womens-Choice-Award-Partner-AMR-Program-Overview-082517.pdf
