Mount St. Mary's maternity department earns national recognitionby jmaloni
The maternity department of the Center for Women at Mount St. Mary's Hospital has been rated in the top 10 percent for excellent services by a nationwide ratings agency. Professional Research Consultants Inc. has presented Mount St. Mary's Maternity with a "Five Star Excellence Award," signifying that patient satisfaction is in the highest 10 percent nationally for 2011.
"We have already invested more than $1 million in renovations and equipment in our new facility and it is beautiful," said Judith A. Maness, president and CEO. "But what sets us apart is the highly trained nursing staff that meets the needs of our patients, along with the dedicated physicians and medical providers. It is a total team effort, and the great satisfaction surveys from our patients who trusted us with their care speak for themselves."
Maness credited the work of Barbara Bucci, RN, vice president of patient care services, Debra Hastee, RN, director of maternity services; and the obstetrics staff.
