Healthcare consumers in southern New Jersey have voted the Virtua Voorhees hospital with the highest “quality and image” ratings of all hospitals in what is identified as the Camden market and includes Camden, Burlington and Gloucester counties. Virtua was the area’s only recipient of the 2014–2015 Consumer Choice Award from the National Research Corporation. This is the seventh time Virtua has won this prestigious award.
“Virtua is honored to receive the Consumer Choice Award because it is based on the opinions of healthcare consumers in our marketplace,” Virtua President and CEO Richard P. Miller. “This designation indicates that we have earned the trust and loyalty of the communities we serve.”
Winners are determined by consumer perceptions on multiple quality and image ratings collected in National Research’s Market Insights survey, which is the largest online consumer healthcare survey in the U.S., surveying over 290,000 households. The award winners are hospitals which healthcare consumers have identified as having the best reputations for high-quality care, improvement initiatives and positive consumer perceptions and experiences.
According to Brian Wynne, vice president at National Research, “This year’s winners have done an exceptional job of representing their organizations in terms of high-quality care, improvement initiatives, and positive consumer perceptions and experiences.”
At Virtua, Miller said people are cared for at all stages of their lives through a range of health and wellness services.
“Our mission is to help people be well, get well and stay well,” Miller said. “This award is an affirmation from the community we serve that we are fulfilling that mission and we appreciate being recognized by consumers with the Consumer Choice Award.”
