Madison, Wisconsin – UW Health ranks ninth in the country for consumer loyalty, according to NRC Health, a patient-experience firm.
UW Health has earned a 2017/2018 Consumer Loyalty Award which recognizes health care systems and hospitals that garner extraordinary loyalty from their patients. UW Health is ninth among 100 health care systems and hospitals receiving the award.
"UW Health prides itself on patient-centered care and high-quality patient experiences," said Dr. Alan Kaplan, UW Health CEO. "So, it’s gratifying to receive the Consumer Loyalty Award."
The winners were selected based on results from NRC Health's Market Insights survey, the largest database of health care consumer responses in the nation.
