Becker’s Hospital Review Names Flagler Hospital  Among the Nation’s Top 100 for Women’s Health Programs

Becker’s Hospital Review has named St. Augustine’s own Flagler Hospital among the Top 100 hospitals in the country with great women’s health programs. According to Becker’s, the hospitals on the list offer award-winning care to women in a variety of specialties, including gynecology, obstetrics, women-focused heart care and women-focused cancer care.

To develop this list, Becker's editorial team selected hospitals based on national rankings and awards, including U.S. News & World Report national and regional rankings for gynecology, CareChex rankings for women's healthcare, women's health Healthgrades awards, Women's Choice Award's Best Breast Centers list and Baby-Friendly designation.

Becker’s reported the following about Flagler Hospital’s inclusion on the list: “The Breast Health program at Flagler Hospital earned National Accreditation for Breast Centers recognition from the American College of Surgeons for its patient-centered and comprehensive breast care. The 335-bed hospital also received Women's Choice Award designation as one of the best breast centers in America for 2016. In addition, Healthgrades awarded the hospital its Labor and Delivery Excellence Award and Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award in 2016.”

“We are honored to be recognized by Becker’s for our performance related to women’s health specifically. In collaboration with our physician partners, we have put a great deal of resources into our breast health program, including a dedicated breast cancer navigator, adoption of interprofessional breast cancer conferences, and the latest in 3D mammogram technology,“ commented Flagler Hospital President and CEO Joe Gordy. “Our maternity program is also a source of pride for us, as we offer everything from evidence-based low-intervention birthing techniques to state-of-the-art neonatal intensive care, all in a family-centered environment. We had the privilege to deliver nearly 1,600 babies at Flagler Hospital last year.”

“Quality and safety are our top priority at Flagler. We place the same emphasis on achieving the best outcomes for patients in every service line and specialty at the hospital, “added Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer, Jason Barrett. “These efforts are reflected in our earning five-star ratings from Healthgrades for clinical outcomes in 25 categories for 2016,”
