Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital Named One of America's Best Hospitals for Heart Care

Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital has been named a recipient of the Women’s Choice Award ® as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care.

The America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care list is determined by first identifying the top 25% of 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, a measure that is very important to women in choosing a hospital, are selected.

Marie Droege, President of Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital said: “Our team is delighted to be recognized by our patients as a leader in heart care. The care, comfort and safety of our patients are our top priorities, and we are very pleased to see that Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital not only performed well clinically with regard to heart care measures, but it also had a high recommendation rate. This measure is very important to women in choosing a hospital, and as the primary health care decision makers, women account for about 90 percent of all family choices when it comes to matters of health.”
