KP West LA Receives Women's Choice Award for Bariatric Care

Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles was designated as one of "America’s Best Hospitals” across the nation for bariatric care by receiving the Women's Choice Award. Additionally, Kaiser Permanente Southern California has received the Women’s Choice Award® designation, “California’s Most Recommended Health Insurance Plan.” The methodology for this award is based on surveys of tens of thousands of women, as well as research conducted in partnership with the Wharton School of Business on what drives the consumer experience for women vs. men. The Women's Choice Award organization distributed a statewide survey to more than 10,000 women who reside in California, and these women were asked to identify which health insurance plan they would highly recommend to their friends and family. “We pride ourselves on our patient-centered, integrated approach that creates high quality care,” said Julie Miller-Phipps, president of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals, Inc., for the Southern California Region. “It’s gratifying when data supports our approach and show us that our members choose Kaiser Permanente with confidence, knowing that we put their health and safety first.” According to the Women’s Choice Award®, market research shows that women influence more than 90 percent of family healthcare decisions; and a national survey conducted by the Women’s Choice Award® determined which hospitals and services women would highly recommend in today’s marketplace. These hospitals had to meet exceptionally high standards regarding women’s unique needs and preferences. You can learn more about the Women's Choice Award here:
