Boca Raton Regional Hospital Wins National Research Corporations Consumer Choice Award

Only Hospital in Palm Beach County to Receive Accolade

Boca Raton Regional Hospital has been named a 2015/2016 Consumer Choice Award recipient by the National Research Corporation (NRC). The annual accolade identifies hospitals across the United States that healthcare consumers choose as having the highest quality and image. Boca Regional joins such prestigious institutions as the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Massachusetts General Hospital and The Johns Hopkins Hospital in this year’s listings, and is the only provider in Palm Beach County to receive the distinction.

Brian Wynne, Vice President of Business Development at NRC commented, “For each of the past twenty 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.”

Award recipients are determined by consumer perceptions on multiple quality and image ratings in NRC’s Market Insights survey, the largest online consumer healthcare survey in the country. The survey includes more than 300,000 households in the contiguous 48 states and the District of Columbia. Hospitals named by consumers are ranked based on their Core Based Statistical Areas as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau, with winning facilities being ranked the highest.

“We are most gratified to receive this significant, third-party distinction,” said Jerry Fedele, President and CEO at Boca Regional. “It adds to our growing list of national accolades such as U.S News & World Report’s listing of us as a Top Ranked Regional Hospital. We are very proud to see our quality recognized in such outstanding fashion.”
