Christiana Care earned the 2013/2014 Consumer Choice Award as the top hospital in Delaware by the National Research Corporation (NRC), a health care performance measurement company.
The award identified 277 U.S. hospitals consumers choose as having the highest quality and image. This is the 18th year NRC has issued the awards, and Christiana Care has received the award each time.
Consumer perceptions on multiple quality and image ratings determine winners. The study surveyed more than 270,000 households in the contiguous 48 states and the District of Columbia.
“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,” said Susan L. Henricks, president and chief operating officer at National Research.
