CHRISTUS Shreveport-Bossier Health System has been named as one of America’s Best Hospitals by the Women’s Choice Award®, America’s trusted referral source for the best in healthcare. 

The award signifies that CHRISTUS Shreveport-Bossier is one of the top healthcare providers in the country based on a review of nearly 5,000 hospitals.

CHRISTUS Shreveport-Bossier was awarded one of America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care, Cancer Care, Bariatric Surgery and Outpatient Experience.

“We are honored to be recognized for the effort and energy this system puts into ensuring our patients have the best possible experience and outcomes when they visit our facilities,” Isaac Palmer, CEO CHRISTUS Shreveport-Bossier Health System, said. “I want to thank all of our Associates and providers who live our mission every day. They provide exceptional care to our patients, work diligently on their behalf, and they are proud to be a part of this team.”

In the last year CHRISTUS Shreveport-Bossier has grown heart care services by adding a hybrid operating suite for high risk cardio patients, opened the area’s first outpatient cath lab by partnering with the physicians at Advanced Cardiovascular Specialists, and expanded a dedicated cardiac step-down unit at the hospital.

CHRISTUS Cancer Treatment Center team provides patients with comprehensive cancer care and the physicians remain dedicated to treating the patient and not the disease.  The CHRISTUS Cancer Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer for 29 years.

CHRISTUS Shreveport-Bossier offers comprehensive bariatric programs that provide surgical solutions and continued follow-up care for long-term weight loss success. CHRISTUS Highland Medical Center is accredited by MBSAQIP as a comprehensive center for bariatric surgery.

The methodology for the America’s Best Hospitals is unique in that it combines national accreditations, Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results and hospital outcome scores with primary research about women’s healthcare preferences. It is the only award recognizing excellence in patient services based on robust criteria that consider patient satisfaction and clinical excellence.  Additionally, each service line award has supplementary criteria that are specific to the service line.  For a full list of award methodology, visit Women’s Choice Award methodology page
