Breast Center Earns Women’s Choice Award

December 9, 2022

Cooley Dickinson Hospital was awarded a 2023 Women’s Choice Awards Thursday.

The Breast Center was honored for breast imaging. Breast care centers must be designated by the American College of Radiology (ACR) as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) in order to qualify.

The hospital was also ranked within the top 8% of 4,729 facilities examined with 73% of patients reporting they would “definitely recommend the hospital.”

“We are honored to receive the Women’s Choice Award for recognizing the top-quality care we deliver to our patients,” Director Medical Imaging Michelle Kearsley said.  “At both of our Amherst and Northampton facilities, we are proud to offer the community access to top-of the line technology, board certified Radiologists, and the ability to collaborate with our surgeons to provide comprehensive care to the community we serve.”

The Women’s Choice Awards is the only national list focused on female patients. The awards’ methodology utilizes the most recent publicly available information from The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), as well as accreditation information.  In some cases, the awards utilize surveys of tens of thousands of women, as well as research conducted in partnership with the Wharton School of Business.
