Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital Lauded for Exceptional Breast Care

Providence Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital Receives the 2022 Women’s Choice Award®
as one of America’s Best Comprehensive Breast Centers

Providence Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital has been named one of America’s Best Comprehensive Breast Centers by the Women’s Choice Award®, a trusted referral source for the best in health care. 

The Comprehensive Breast Center award signifies that Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital is in the top nine percent of 4,728 U.S. hospitals offering breast care services.

According to the American Cancer Society, about 1 in 8 women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime, and it is the second leading cause of cancer death in women behind lung cancer.

“As a breast cancer survivor, I learned the hard way that where you choose to have your mammogram can have a profound impact on your outcome and experience,” said Delia Passi, founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award.

Passi was the victim of poor imaging and misdiagnosis.  Doctors eventually discovered her breast cancer after a surgical biopsy and two lumpectomies at the age of 42.  Her experience was the inspiration behind creating the Women’s Choice Award for Best Hospitals following her career as former publisher of Working Woman and Working Mother magazines.

“We empower women to make educated, confident decisions about their health,” said Passi. “By letting women know which breast centers in their area are among America’s best, we are able to reduce risk by helping them make better decisions and smarter health care choices.”

The methodology used to select Santa Rosa Memorial as one of America’s Best Comprehensive Breast Centers is unique in that it evaluates Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results along with primary research about women’s healthcare preferences.

The list of 466 award winners represents breast centers that have met the highest standards of breast care in the nation as set by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) or the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers (NQMBC) and carry the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) seal from the American College of Radiology.

“At Providence, we’re committed to providing the highest quality of care to our patients,” said Elizabeth Tito, M.D., medical director for the Breast Center at Providence Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. “Our caregivers in the Breast Center are pleased to be recognized once again for their unwavering commitment to providing personalized, compassionate breast care and the best outcomes for our patients.”
