The Christ Hospital has won the Consumer Choice Award presented by National Research Corporation (NRC) for the 15th consecutive year. Local healthcare consumers rated The Christ Hospital as the most preferred hospital in the Cincinnati market, which includes southwest Ohio, northern Kentucky and southeast Indiana. The award criteria are based on four consumer metrics: best overall quality, best image and reputation, best doctors and best nurses. The announcement will appear in Modern Healthcare magazine.
“There is no greater honor for us than to earn the trust and loyalty of the patients and families that we serve. We continue to look for new ways to make each patient’s experience the best possible and meet the community’s diverse healthcare needs,” said Susan Croushore, President and CEO of The Christ Hospital.
“This has been an exciting year of growth for us, including opening new facilities such as our Center for Health and Aging, Audiology Center and Foot and Ankle Clinic, expanding our Diabetes and Endocrine Center, introducing new primary care and specialty physicians to the community, and opening fully-renovated behavioral health and spine/orthopedics units at the hospital. We look forward to bringing additional new services to the community in the years ahead.”
The Christ Hospital is strongly committed to improving community health in Greater Cincinnati. It partners with local non-profit organizations to target specific health-related concerns such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, obesity and women’s health.
