Women’s Choice Award has named Inter-Community Hospital in Covina
and Queen of the Valley Hospital in West Covina as two of America’s
Best Hospitals for Heart Care. The methodology used to select America’s
Best Hospitals for Heart Care is unique in that it evaluates:
- 30-day mortality and readmission rates for heart attack and failure
- The number of cardiac/vascular services offered. Recognized hospitals must
offer at least six of the following services: Cardiac Catheter Lab, Cardiac
Rehabilitation, Cardiac Surgery, Carotid Stenting, Coronary Interventions,
Electrophysiology, Vascular Interventions, Vascular Surgery and Coronary
Intensive Care (CCU).
- Patient recommendation ratings on the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare
Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) Survey
- Primary research about women’s healthcare preferences
The Women’s Choice Award is encouraging women to learn which hospitals
on the America’s Best list are “their heart hospitals”
and to share the list with their circles of friends and loved ones through
Facebook and other means during American Heart Month.
