Birmingham is known for its outstanding medical care. In the latest accolade for the city, the Women’s Choice Award deemed UAB “Best Hospital” for six different areas. UAB joins many Birmingham medical care facilities to receive awards from the national organization.

Before we dive in, here’s more background on The Women’s Choice Award

The Women’s Choice Award identifies the best brands, companies and healthcare facilities empowering women and men. Its goal is to simplify choices for consumers whether it comes to shopping, receiving medical attention and more.

“The Women’s Choice Award for Best Hospitals,” specifically, is a credential that identifies that nation’s most outstanding hospitals. To choose awardees, the organization taps publicly available information from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

It also uses information and surveys from thousands of women to determine which measures are most important to them. That being said, only the nation’s best hospitals receive this coveted credential.
