St. Mary’s Health Wins Consumer Choice Award by National Research Corporation
St. Mary’s Health was named a 2015/2016 Consumer Choice Award by National Research Corporation. The annual award identifies hospitals across the United States that healthcare consumers choose as having the highest quality and image.
“This honor means so much to us, because it means that our own community has given us high marks in terms of the quality care we provide for our patients,” said Keith Jewell, President of St. Mary’s Health. St. Mary’s is part of Ascension, the nation’s largest Catholic and non-profit health system. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Consumer Choice Award celebrating the power of a strong brand image in healthcare.
“For each of the past 20 years, winning hospitals have provided outstanding experiences that have transcended their four walls to build consumer preference, loyalty, and trust in their markets. We are honored to congratulate this year’s winners on a job well done,” said Brian Wynne, Vice President of Business Development at National Research.
Winners are determined by consumer perceptions on multiple quality and image ratings collected in the company’s Market Insights survey, the largest online consumer healthcare survey in the country. National Research surveys more than 300,000 households in the contiguous 48 states and the District of Columbia. Hospitals named by consumers are analyzed and ranked based on Core Based Statistical Areas defined by the U.S. Census Bureau, with winning facilities being ranked the highest.
