WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- White Plains Hospital has again received the Consumer’s Choice Award from the National Research Corporation.
The Hospital is a nine-time winner of the award, which recognizes quality and image in healthcare by the Nebraska-based research corporation.
The award identifies hospitals that healthcare consumers have chosen as having the highest quality and image throughout the U.S. This is the 18th year National Research has awarded hospitals whose consumers have recognized them for providing the highest quality healthcare.
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 as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau, with the winning facilities being ranked the highest.
The National Research Corporation (NRC) is a healthcare research and quality improvement firm offering performance measurement and improvement services to health plans, hospitals, health care systems, physicians, and other healthcare organizations. Dedicated solely to the healthcare industry, NRC is a leading provider of ongoing performance measurement, improvement, analysis and tracking services to healthcare organizations.
“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. Henricks, 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.”
