Winchester Hospital Earns National Health Care Award from HealthGrades

Winchester, MA (April 10, 2015) Winchester Hospital received the HealthGrades® 2015 Outstanding Patient Experience Award™. HealthGrades is the leading independent health care ratings organization and it’s the eighth year in a row Winchester Hospital earned the award.

The Outstanding Patient Experience Award, which recognizes hospitals performing in the top 15 percent nationally, is based on Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) scores compiled by Medicare using patient survey responses.

“In the area of patient experience, our white paper suggests that hospitals need to better understand shifting drivers of satisfaction in diverse patient populations across different hospital settings,” said Evan Marks, Chief Strategy Officer at HealthGrades.

“Winning this award for eight straight years is an incredible accomplishment, said Dale Lodge, CEO of Winchester Hospital. “There’s no greater compliment than being recognized for providing our patients with an outstanding experience. It is through the hard work and dedication of our staff that this award is possible.”
