October 12, 2015
Swedish Medical Center announced today it has received the 2015/2016 Consumer Choice Award from National Research Corporation. The annual award identifies hospitals across the United States that healthcare consumers choose as having the highest quality and image. This is the 16th year that Swedish has received this award.

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.

“This award is truly a reflection of the extraordinary care provided by our caregivers on a daily basis,” said Tony Armada, Chief Executive Officer for Swedish Health Services. “We thank our patients and our community for recognizing the dedication and hard work of all of our caregivers through this award.”

This is the 20th anniversary of the Consumer Choice Award.

“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.
