Boca Raton Regional Hospital Earns National Research Corporation's Consumer Choice Award for Second Year in a Row

BOCA RATON, FL – November 28, 2016 – Boca Raton Regional Hospital has been named a 2016/2017 Consumer Choice Award recipient by 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 again joins such prestigious institutions as Massachusetts General Hospital, Cleveland Clinic and The Johns Hopkins Hospital in this year’s listings, and is the sole provider in the Palm Beach County service area to receive the distinction.

“For each of the past 21 years, winning hospitals have provided outstanding experiences that have transcended their four walls to drive consumer preference, trust, and loyalty in their markets. We are honored to congratulate this year’s winners on a job well done,” said Brian Wynne, Market Insights General Manager at NRC.

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 honored to receive this distinction for the second year in a row,” said Jerry Fedele, President and CEO at Boca Regional. “A recognition of this caliber from consumers themselves is most gratifying and strong, objective testimony to the quality of care we provide.”
