Sioux Falls Specialty Hospital is proud to announce that Midwest Pain Centers was recently named a winner of the 2015/2016 National APEX Quality Award by SPH Analytics (SPHA).

The APEX Quality Award distinguishes Midwest Pain Specialists as one of the highest performing healthcare entities in its healthcare peer grouping. Winners are determined solely on patient satisfaction. This year, more than 800 healthcare facilities were eligible for the award, and 78 were selected as winners.

Each year SPH Analytics recognizes the highest performing healthcare entities with the APEX Quality Award. APEX, defined as the highest or culminating point, is further defined by SPH Analytics as Attributes for Patient Excellence.

This national distinction recognizes outstanding healthcare organizations that have demonstrated the highest levels of excellence in patient satisfaction and overall care over a 12-month period. APEX Quality Award winners represent healthcare providers who consistently achieve the highest level of patient satisfaction, earning this recognition that sets them apart from their peers.

According to SPH Analytics, “The award is patient-centric, with scoring provided solely from each entity’s patients. Clinical interaction is heavily weighted in all markets and SPH Analytics evaluates the complementary measures they believe contribute to the effectiveness of care provided market by market.”

“Like every division of Sioux Falls Specialty Hospital, the physicians and staff at Midwest Pain Specialists are committed to meeting the needs of our patients,” said to Sioux Falls Specialty Hospital CEO, Dr. Blake Curd. “We’re very proud to be recognized with the APEX award because it means our patients are receiving exceptional care – which is the foundation of everything we do.”
