Award Places the Hospital as Highest Consumer-Ranked Hospital in Syracuse
SYRACUSE, N.Y. - St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center was publicly named by the National Research Corp. (NRC) as a 2013/2014 Consumer Choice Award winner; this is the 15th time the hospital has earned the award. The award identifies hospitals which healthcare consumers have chosen as having the highest quality and image in more than 250 markets throughout the United States, and places St. Joseph's as the highest consumer-ranked hospital in the Syracuse area.
Winners are determined by consumer perceptions on multiple quality and image ratings collected in the company’s Market Insights Survey. This study surveys more than 270,000 households in the contiguous 48 states and the District of Columbia. From the households surveyed, hospitals named by consumers are analyzed and ranked based on their Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau, with the winning facilities being ranked the highest.
“We are thrilled to offer this annual award because we understand how important the role of reputation plays in healthcare consumer decision-making,” said Susan L. Hendricks, president and Chief Operating Officer at National Research. “These winners have done an outstanding job of representing their organizations in terms of high quality care, improvement initiatives, and positive consumer perceptions and experiences. The consumers have spoken. And we congratulate the winning hospitals in receiving this honor.”
