Awards and Honors

Best Hospital, Orthopedics


The Women's Choice Award recipients for Best Hospitals for Orthopedics are determined first by identifying hospitals that provided comprehensive orthopedic services, indicating a minimum number of arthroscopy, joint replacement and spine surgery services, as well as offering onsite MRI and physical therapy. Those full service hospitals were then judged on their HCAHPS results for patient recommendations and postoperative recovery instructions, measures that are very important to women in choosing a hospital.
