Woman’s Hospital was recently named a “Top Ranked Hospital” by Louisiana Life magazine in its July 2015 edition.
Woman’s is one of six hospitals in Baton Rouge to receive the honor, which took into account Louisiana hospitals’ rankings from a 2015 Medicare patient survey.
The poll, conducted and compiled by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, surveyed patients of more than 3,500 nationwide hospitals about 11 areas of their experience, including communication between doctors and nurses, responsiveness of hospital staff, cleanliness and noise levels inside the hospital and if they would recommend the hospital to others.
Woman’s Hospital received four out of five stars in the survey to lead the Baton Rouge area. Woman’s rating also leads the state average of 3.2 stars and the national average of 3.3 stars.
To qualify for Louisiana Life’s list, at least 60 percent of the patients queried had to give each hospital a top overall ranking of 9 or 10.
