SCKMC Named Among America’s Best Hospitals for ER Care

South Central Kansas Medical Center is one of 15 hospitals in Kansas to receive the Women’s Choice Award® as America’s Best Hospitals for Emergency Care 2017. This is the fourth year in a row that SCKMC has received the award.

July 7, 2017

Recent U.S. Department of Labor data reports women make approximately 90-percent of health care decisions for their families and are more likely to be the care givers when a family member falls ill. Now their opinions and experiences with healthcare have been used to determine the top hospitals in the Nation.

South Central Kansas Medical Center is one of 15 hospitals in Kansas to receive the Women’s Choice Award® as America’s Best Hospitals for Emergency Care 2017. This is the fourth year in a row that SCKMC has received the award.

Being treated with the proper level of care impacts your health, well-being and healing so our goal is to identify those hospitals that have demonstrated the highest level of quality care to their patients, with a special focus on the female experience,” as per the Women’s Choice Awards website.

According to the Women’s Choice Award website, the award “represents the extraordinary power and significance of today’s female consumer through their collective voice in determining the most recommended brands, products and services. The Women’s Choice Award allows women to choose with confidence, knowing that other women across America have tried and experienced that brand or service and would highly recommend it to their family and friends.”

Top hospitals must rank within the top 10% of all 3,500 hospitals reporting emergency department performance to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The Women’s Choice Award weighs CMS scores obtained on eight publicly reported measures, such as total time a patient spends in the ER. Each measure is weighted based upon the priorities given by women surveyed by award staff.

Our methodology is unique in that it is the only national list that simplifies a woman’s choice when selecting a hospital. In some cases we have surveyed thousands of women to determine which measures are most important to them,” explained the Women’s Choice Award staff.

“I’ve always felt like we have had a great department down here. They’re very smart, skilled, and knowledgeable. Something like this makes me feel proud, it’s awesome,” said Bonnie Schieber, SCKMC’s Emergency Department Manager. (To win the award) is very impressive. “I’m very glad that we can show the community an award like this, and to receive it four years in a row is so exciting!”
