For the 15th year, St. Luke’s Hospital in Boise is named among the top hospitals when it comes to the highest quality and image.
The distinction comes from the annual Consumer Choice Award by National Research Corporation, and is the result of healthcare consumers across the country weighing in with their view of their local hospitals. St. Luke’s is the only hospital in Idaho to receive this honor.
“Our patients and their families come first for St. Luke’s, and the ongoing Consumer Choice distinction affirms what we strive to keep focused on every day,” St. Luke’s Health System President and CEO Dr. David Pate said. “Excellent patient care is job one for all of us, and we’re gratified that patients experience and report that care and caring.”
This year marks the 21st anniversary of the Consumer Choice Award, which is designed to celebrate the power of a strong brand image in healthcare.
“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 National Research.
Winners are determined by consumer perceptions collected in the company’s “Market Insights” online survey. More than 300,000 households in 48 states and the District of Columbia are polled. Those hospitals named are then analyzed and ranked. A complete list of winners can be found at nationalresearch.com/ConsumerChoice.
