Florida Hospital Zephyrhills (FHZ) has learned that it has attained the honor of being named one of America’s Best Hospitals for 2018 by the Women’s Choice Award® (WCA). This is the second consecutive year that FHZ has received four WCA®s in the following areas: heart care; orthopedics; patient safety; and stroke care.
“We are elated to have retained the status of being one of America’s Best Hospitals in four categories,” said Amanda Maggard, President and CEO. “This success can be attributed to our clinical teams’ hard work, their commitment to patient care, and to our consumers who clearly voiced their preference. It’s unusual to receive a WCA® in more than one or two categories and we are extremely grateful.”
According to the WCA®, women account for more than 85 percent of all consumer purchases and influence over 90 percent of family healthcare decisions. However, because women are busier than ever, WCA® staff who founded the organization in 2010 asked how they could best support a woman’s hectic lifestyle. The answer was to simplify a cluttered marketplace by identifying the best healthcare facilities, services and products. While the methodology for granting a WCA® differs within each industry, every awarded brand and service has the common denominator of favorable consumer recommendations ratings, according to the WCA®.
