CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs Earns Women’s Choice Awards for Cancer Care, Heart Care, Patient Safety

CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs was recognized with three national Women’s Choice Awards for cancer care, heart care, and patient safety. The 2023 Women’s Choice Award for Best Hospitals™ helps women find the highest quality healthcare by identifying the nation’s best hospitals based on robust criteria that includes relevant clinical performance, patient satisfaction, and appropriate accreditations. CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs was the only hospital in Southwest or Central Arkansas awarded for cancer or heart care and the only hospital in Southwest Arkansas recognized for patient safety.

“Our ministry has long been committed to providing the women of Southwest Arkansas the very highest quality care possible. That begins with our Women’s Clinic and continues throughout every service we provide,” said CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs President Douglas Ross, MD. “We are truly grateful for this recognition and the knowledge that our patients know that they can find exceptional, compassionate care within the doors of CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs.”

The Women’s Choice Award for Best Hospitals™ stemmed from a commitment by CEO Delia Passi made almost 20 years ago following her own horrific breast cancer experience. Following that experience, the organization has worked to help women find the best healthcare based on what matters most to women when selecting a hospital. That includes a robust evaluation of clinical performance and patient experiences based on surveys, extensive research, and patient feedback.

CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs was also highlighted in the 2022 Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals List and has been consistently recognized for excellence in patient care. The hospital earned Primary Heart Attack Center, Advanced Primary Stroke Center and Total Hip and Knee Replacement Certifications from The Joint Commission, making it the only hospital in Arkansas to be recognized in all three areas of care in 2022. CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs also received national Magnet designation for its continued commitment to nursing excellence and has repeatedly been named one of the Best Places to Work in Arkansas by Arkansas Business and Best Companies Group.
