Napa, CALIF. January 19, 2016 – Queen of the Valley Medical Center has received the 2016 Women’s Choice Award® as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics. This evidence-based designation is the only award that identifies the country’s best healthcare institutions based on robust criteria that consider female patient satisfaction, clinical excellence, and what women say they want from a hospital.

The list of over 400 award winners, including Queen of the Valley Medical Center represents hospitals that offer exceptional obstetric services which ranked above the national average for patient safety, thereby supporting a woman’s decision when choosing the best for her maternity needs.

“This award is a testament to our skilled physicians, nurses and entire Obstetrics and Infant Care team,” said Armilla Henry, Director of Maternal Child Health Services at Queen of the Valley Medical Center. “Together, we ensure new mothers, and their loved ones, have a safe and positive experience while in our care.”

“New moms have many choices when it comes to having their baby, so choosing the best birthing experience is right up there with choosing the best doctor. We’ve made it easy for moms to vet out the hospitals proven to deliver an outstanding experience,” says Delia Passi, CEO and Founder of the Women’s Choice Award.

The America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics scoring process is unique in that it is the only national list that is evidence-based and focuses on female patient satisfaction. Awarded hospitals ranked above the national average for patient recommendations, as indicated by the data reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys. Additional requirements included: having a NICU on-site, low rates of early elective deliveries (between 0-1%) as well as ranking above the national average for patient safety.
