Posted: 2012-11-05

Conemaugh Memorial has once again been recognized as a Consumer Choice Award winner by National Research Corporation. 

This is the 10th year in a row that Conemaugh Memorial has earned this designation.

The award is given to the hospital in each market that is voted on by its consumers for being the best across 4 key metrics; Best Overall Quality, Best Doctors, Best Nurses, & Best Image/Reputation. 

According to National Research Corporation, winners are determined by a consumer perception study which surveys over 250,000 households representing over 450,000 consumers in the contiguous 48 states and the District of Columbia. From the households surveyed, 3200 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.

“The Consumer Choice Awards recognizes hospitals that patients have rated as the most preferred places to receive care according to quality and image,” said Susan L. Henricks, President and Chief Operating Officer for National Research Corporation.

“We appreciate this reinforcement and feedback from our patients,” said Steve Tucker, President of Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center. “We definitely strive to be the hospital of choice for our community. Quality metrics are something we study closely, looking for every opportunity to raise the bar on patient care.”
