UC Davis Medical Center is a winner of the Women’s Choice Award as one of America’s Best Hospitals in Heart Care.

February is American Heart Month and an important time to raise awareness of heart care, as one in every four women dies from heart disease in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“The Women’s Choice Award is based on robust criteria that considers patient satisfaction, clinical excellence and what women really want when it comes to treatment and a quality hospital experience,” says Delia Passi, CEO and founder of WomenCertified, home of the Women’s Choice Award.

“UC Davis Medical Center not only performed well clinically with regard to heart care measures, but it also had a high recommendation rate, a measure that is very important to women in choosing a hospital.”

As the collective voice of female consumers, the Women’s Choice Award provides women with recommendations they can trust, from other women.

“In addition to providing leading-edge, compassionate care to all of our cardiovascular patients, UC Davis has been home for the past two decades to the nation’s first program dedicated to researching and treating heart disease in women,” said Ann Madden Rice, CEO of the Medical Center. “We owe this recognition to the tireless advocacy of our team that is defining gender-based differences in heart disease in order to improve treatments and save lives.”
