(Seguin) — Guadalupe Regional Medical Center Receives the 2020 Women’s Choice Award as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Safety. This award recognizes safe surgery practices and lower rates for complications and infections.
 
Guadalupe Regional Medical Center has been named one of America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Safety by the Women’s Choice Award®, America’s trusted referral source for the best in healthcare. The award signifies that GRMC is in the top eight percent of 4,814 U.S. hospitals for patient safety; specifically GRMC falls into the top four percent of U.S. hospitals for patient safety.
 
“This national recognition from the Women’s Choice Award signifies that GRMC is one of 379 award recipients representing the hospitals that have met the highest standards for patient safety in the U.S. by the Women’s Choice Award”, said Robert Haynes, CEO for Guadalupe Regional Medical Center. “This award confirms our testament to the high standard of care provided to patients every day by the staff at GRMC and to our dedication in providing high-quality, safe care to every life we are privileged to touch.”
 
To receive the award, hospitals must also use an Inpatient Safe Surgery Checklist to assess effective communication and safe practices during three perioperative periods: prior to administration of anesthesia; prior to skin incision; and prior to the patient leaving the operating room or procedural area. “Very few hospitals can say they are the safest in the country, and by identifying those who are, the Women’s Choice Award is helping the female consumer identify the hospitals in her area that are dedicated to creating the safest patient experience,” said Delia Passi, Founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award. “This recognition is critical for women as they make 80% of healthcare decisions and need to know they are putting themselves-and their family members-in safe hands.”
