Best Hospital Award for Minimally Invasive Surgery 2022

F.F. Thompson Hospital was recently named as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Minimally Invasive Surgery by the Women’s Choice Award®. Thompson scored in the top 6 percent of 4,728 hospitals reviewed.

Minimally invasive surgery has become the standard of care for many surgical procedures as a safer and more effective option to open surgery, minimizing risks by significantly reducing the size of incisions. Benefits include shorter hospital stays, fewer complications and faster recovery as well as reduced pain, scarring and costs.

Thompson has received this latest distinction by meeting the following criteria:

  • The hospital is listed by the American Hospital Directory as providing robotic surgery and is designated by the Surgical Review Corporation as a Center of Excellence for Robotic Surgery.
  • The hospital has a patient recommendation rating of 72 percent or more (i.e. higher than the national average) from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) survey.

This Excellence in Minimally Invasive Surgery designation also means:

  • We meet the highest standards for surgical safety and quality of care
  • We have some of the lowest rates of surgical infections and complications in the nation
