Award recognizes hospitals with the highest safety ratings for safe surgery practices and lower rates for complications and infections.

Brookhaven, MS–December 6, 2022 –King’s Daughters 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 KDMC is in the top 5% of 4,729 U.S. hospitals for patient safety in safe surgery practices and lower rates for complications and infections.

“Not all 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 community that are dedicated to creating the safest patient experience,” said Delia Passi, Founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award.

The methodology used to select King’s Daughters Medical Center as one of the Best Hospitals for Patient Safety is unique in that it evaluates 12 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) measures of infections and complications, Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results along with primary research about women’s healthcare preferences. It is the only award recognizing excellence in patient safety based on robust criteria that consider patient satisfaction and clinical excellence.

“The recipients of the America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Safety Award have led the country by implementing safe practices that have ultimately saved lives,” said Passi. “This recognition is critical for women as they make over 80% of healthcare decisions and need to know they are putting themselves—and their family members—in the safest hands.”

KDMC is one of 487 award recipients representing the hospitals that have met the highest standards for patient safety in the U.S. by the Women’s Choice Award.

Scott Christensen, FACHE, CEO of King’s Daughters Medical Center said, “This is exciting for KDMC to be recognized as a leader in hospital safety from Women’s Choice but, to be ranked in the TOP 5% in the nation is an even greater honor. All of the KDMC family is committed to safe, efficient, and compassionate care as we achieve our mission of always providing quality health and wellness in a Christian environment. It is a great honor to receive this recognition, and also a true reflection of the quality of our medical staff and KDMC family.
