Hoag has been named as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care and Obstetrics by the 2019 Women’s Choice Award®. This is the sixth consecutive year (2014-2019) that Hoag has received awards in these categories.

“It’s an honor to continuously be recognized as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care and Obstetrics by the Women’s Choice Award,” said Robert T. Braithwaite, president and CEO of Hoag. “These awards reflect our dedicated team of physicians, nurses and staff who always put our patients first and give them the confidence that Hoag offers the best in terms of quality care and patient safety.”

These evidence-based designations signify that Hoag is in the top 8.4 percent of 4,797 U.S. hospitals offering heart care services and in the top 17 percent of 2,778 U.S. hospitals offering obstetrics.

The methodology for the America’s Best Hospitals is unique in that it combines national accreditations, Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) and hospital outcome scores with primary research about women’s healthcare preferences. It is the only award recognizing excellence in patient services based on robust criteria that consider patient satisfaction and clinical excellence.

Additionally, each service line award has supplementary criteria that are specific to the service line.
