Cincinnati, OH (Nov. 7, 2016) – For the 21st consecutive year, The Christ Hospital has been named the Most Preferred Hospital in the region and winner of the 2016 Consumer Choice Award presented by National Research Corporation (NRC). In the NRC independent survey of local households, Market Insights, The Christ Hospital ranked #1 in all award categories: Best Doctors; Best Nurses; Best Overall Quality; and Best Image and Reputation.

The Christ Hospital is one of just 32 hospitals – out of nearly 5,000 nationwide – to have earned the Consumer Choice Award each year since its introduction in 1996. NRC surveys consumers in markets throughout the U.S. Locally, the region includes Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana.

“The Consumer Choice Award is a significant accomplishment and a very prestigious honor. It demonstrates that our mission of improving the health of the community and creating patient value resonates with the community…and that patients and families truly value the care that our exceptional physicians, dedicated employees and tireless volunteers provide,” said Mike Keating, President and CEO of The Christ Hospital Health Network.

The Christ Hospital continues to transform the way healthcare is delivered by investing in innovative technology, pursuing clinical trials and expanding our footprint into communities where our patients live.
