LGMC Tops in Obstetrics
Women in Acadiana highly recommend Lafayette General Medical Center (LGMC) for Obstetrics services. The news comes after LGMC was recently named among America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics in 2014 by WomenCertified®.
The award is based on robust criteria that consider female patient satisfaction and what women say they want from a hospital such as quality physician communications, responsiveness of nurses and support staff, cleanliness and trusted referrals from other women.
WomenCertified represents the collective voice of female consumers and is a trusted referral source for top businesses and brands identified as meeting the needs and preferences of women.
"The America’s Best Hospitals in Obstetrics award recognizes the top 5% of hospitals delivering an outstanding patient experience to moms,” says Delia Passi, CEO & Founder, WomenCertified, Inc. "These elite hospitals set a new level of patient care that other hospitals should aspire to achieve.”
Hospitals qualify for this highly selective annual list based on an in-depth proprietary scoring process. This first ever gender-based customer satisfaction study is partnered with The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
"Lafayette General is honored to be named among America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics in 2014 by WomenCertified," says LGMC CEO Patrick W. Gandy, Jr. "Woman are the primary decision maker for health care in households, and to earn their approval speaks volumes to the quality of our services and medical staff.”
Also this year, LGMC was named one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Patient Experience by WomenCertified.
In 2012, the hospital was designated a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology by the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists and the Surgical Review Corporation. Achieving this status ensures that the safest, highest quality of care is delivered to minimally invasive gynecologic surgery patients.
