Castle receives two Women’s Choice Awards®

Awards & Recognition

Castle Medical Center has received the 2015 Women’s Choice Award as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics and as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Emergency Care.

Obestetrics

The scoring process for America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics is unique in its focus on female patient satisfaction. Hospitals that qualify for this highly selective designation provide the highest level of obstetric services based on their exceptional scores for patient recommendation, as provided by data reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys, as well as an analysis that weighs criteria identified as the most important to women for patient satisfaction, including early elective deliveries.

Emergency Care

As a recipient of the Women’s Choice Award as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Emergency Care, Castle Medical Center ranks in the top nine percent nationally for emergency care, a ranking that was achieved by 373 out of the 3,800 emergency rooms that report data to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. Hospitals earning the Emergency Care Award consistently rank in the top 25% of the 3,800 hospitals reporting on their emergency department’s performance to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
