CCMH ED Receives National Recognition

The Cass County Memorial Hospital Emergency Department has been recognized as a 2018 Women’s Choice Award recipient. The CCMH Emergency Department scored in the top 10% of hospitals nationwide, based on hospital size. CCMH is in the 100 beds or less category.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to receive this recognition of the superior care our ED team provides every day,” said Brett Altman, CEO. “This award is particularly significant because it measures objective data based on the criteria women have indicated is most important to them. Women tend to be the healthcare decision makers for the entire family, so it is very rewarding to know we are meeting their expectations on a consistent basis.”

According to their website, the Women’s Choice Award’s goal is to help women make smart healthcare choices. The organization states their understanding of what matters most to women is based on extensive surveys of women to determine the most important factors in their healthcare decision-making. They have also conducted research on this topic in conjunction with the Wharton School of Business. The organization utilizes publicly reported patient experience and clinical data to evaluate hospitals on those factors.
