January 19, 2023

BATON ROUGE, La. -- Press Ganey awarded Woman’s Hospital the 2022 Guardian of Excellence Award for outstanding service in outpatient ambulatory surgery. This marks the eighth consecutive year Woman’s has been recognized by Press Ganey as one of the nation's leaders in providing exceptional patient experience.

“Receiving the Guardian of Excellence Award for outpatient surgery shows that patients don’t need an extended hospital stay to receive exceptional care at Woman’s,” said Rene Ragas, FACHE, president and CEO of Woman’s Hospital. “We truly believe that exceptional care is centered on the patient, and we are proud to deliver excellence with every service we provide."

Press Ganey, the leading Human Experience (HX) healthcare performance improvement company, honors organizations that perform in the top 5% of healthcare facilities for patient experience, employee engagement, physician engagement or clinical quality performance. Woman’s exceeds state and national averages in all of Press Ganey’s measurement categories.

The Guardian of Excellence Award is among several accolades Woman's earned in 2022, including World’s Best Hospitals by Newsweek and Best Place to Work in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare.
