February is National Heart Month

OKLAHOMA CITY (February 2, 2016) - In recognition of National Heart Month, INTEGRIS Heart Hospital at INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center has received the 2016 Women’s Choice Award® as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care. This evidence-based designation is the only heart care award that identifies the country’s best health care institutions based on robust criteria that considers female patient satisfaction, clinical excellence, and what women say they want from a hospital.

The list of 352 award winners, including INTEGRIS Heart Hospital, represents hospitals that not only performed well clinically with regard to heart care measures, but also had a high recommendation rate, a measure that is very important to women when choosing a hospital; signifying INTEGRIS’ commitment to meeting the highest standards in heart care.

“At INTEGRIS Heart Hospital, we not only recognize but address gender disparities contributing to the fact that heart disease is the leading cause of death in women. We are dedicated to removing barriers and delivering excellent care,” says Aleicia Mack, D.O., cardiologist with INTEGRIS Heart Hospital.

The 2016 America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care list is determined by first identifying hospitals across the nation that offer a minimum number of cardiac and/or vascular services. Only hospitals that perform well clinically with regard to heart care measures reported to Medicare, and also have a high Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) recommendation score, are selected. Data provided is totally objective and uniform. No subjective considerations are used to determine the award recipients.

“Considering heart disease is the number one killer of women across the country, helping her find the best in cardiac care is how we empower women and hospitals to live better lives,” says Delia Passi, CEO and Founder of the Women’s Choice Award.
