Residents of Bowling Green and Warren County have chosen The Medical Center as the number one health care facility in the area. The Medical Center at Bowling Green received the Consumer Choice Award as the result of a survey conducted by the National Research Corporation. In the annual survey, The Medical Center came out on top with consumers in the areas of quality and image.
Four Kentucky hospitals received the Consumer Choice Award this year. Other Kentucky winners include Baptist East in Louisville, Central Baptist in Lexington and the University of Kentucky Albert B. Chandler Medical Center also in Lexington.
Consumers were asked about the overall quality of the hospital, the expertise of its physicians and nurses, and the image and reputation of the facility.
“It is an honor when we receive an award that directly represents the voice of our patients. To care for people and improve the quality of life in the communities we serve is The Medical Center’s mission statement. The Consumer Choice Award exemplifies what The Medical Center strives to deliver every day to our community,” said Connie Smith, Chief Executive Officer of The Medical Center.
The award identifies hospitals which healthcare consumers have chosen as having the highest quality in more than 300 markets including more than 250,000 households throughout the United States. Annually, the National Research Corporation awards hospitals whose consumers have recognized them for providing the highest quality healthcare.
This is the third time The Medical Center in Bowling Green has received the Consumer Choice Award.
