Jamaica Hospital Receives 2020 Women's Care Awards
Healthgrades, a leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems, recently announced their 2020 list of Women’s Care Awards recipients and this year Jamaica Hospital Medical Center was among the hospitals honored for the superior care offered to women during gynecological procedures.
Healthgrades reviews data from thousands of hospitals across the country to determine which hospitals receive awards. The awards are separated into three distinct categories:
The Labor and Delivery Excellence Award recognizes hospitals for superior care of women during and after childbirth.
The Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award recognizes hospitals for superior outcomes in surgeries that treat diseases and conditions of the female reproductive system and correct certain conditions of the urinary tract and rectum.
The Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award recognizes hospitals for superior outcomes during and after childbirth and in surgeries that treat diseases and conditions of the female reproductive system.
This year, Jamaica Hospital received the Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award. Only 162 hospitals from across the country received an award. Jamaica Hospital was one of two Queens-based hospitals to receive this honor from Healthgrades.
