Edward Receives National Award

Edward Hospital in Naperville shared that the hospital has received a national award for outstanding achievement in pediatrics from Press Ganey, based on the Child Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS).

The 2020 Guardian of Excellence Award recognizes Edward’s “ability to reach the 95th percentile for each reporting period for the award year.”

The award is a nationally recognized symbol of achievement in healthcare, according to Edward Hospital. The award is presented annually and the award honors clients who consistently sustained performance in the top 5% of all Press Ganey clients for each one-year reporting period.

“We’re very proud that Edward Hospital’s pediatric care has been recognized at the national level,” said Yvette Saba, System VP, Operations, responsible for the Women’s and Children’s services at Edward-Elmhurst Health. “What makes the award special is that it means we can assure parents their children are receiving high-level, comprehensive care close to home in their own communities.”
