Baptist Health Paducah was recognized in the nation’s top 10 percent for orthopedic care by Women Certified.
For comprehensive orthopedic services with good outcomes — including arthroscopy, joint replacement, spine surgery, MRI and physical therapy — only 363 hospitals out of 4,600 earned the Women’s Choice Award for “Best Hospitals for Patient Experience in Orthopedics.”
Larry Barton, Baptist Health Paducah president and CEO, said back and joint pain is one of the most common medical complaints.
“We are happy that women recognize we provide quality services to get you back on your feet,” he said.
Baptist was recognized by the same organization in 2011 and 2012 among “America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Experience” and as “Best Hospitals for Obstetrics” earlier this year.
Women Certified helps women identify businesses that value the customer experience and appreciate female consumer needs. Its scoring process is a national list that focuses on female patient satisfaction.
Winners were chosen based on patient recommendation scores and multiple clinical considerations, such as rates of infection or serious complications.
“We provide women with a trusted third party endorsement based on hospital experiences by women in their community and back that with clinical data to empower them to make smarter health care choices,” said Delia Passi, CEO and founder of Women Certified. “As one of the America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Experience, Baptist Health Paducah meets the toughest standards of excellence set by women.”
