PMC Earns National Hospital of Choice Award

Parrish Medical Center has been recognized as one of America’s most customer-friendly hospitals by the American Alliance of Healthcare Providers (AAHCP) for the spring quarter of 2012.

PMC is one of only 10 hospitals nationwide to earn AAHCP’s “Hospital of Choice” Award. It marks the second time AAHCP has recognized PMC for this honor. PMC earned this recognition in 2009 and again in 2012. Winning hospitals are selected based on a secret review of a facility's performance in customer service, public communication and good citizenship. Awards were presented on June 29 in Washington, D.C. AAHCP evaluates approximately 400 hospitals around the nation each quarter for consideration of this award.

“We continuously search for facilities that are passionate about delivering compassionate care," said R. Vincent Parr, AAHCP president. "The goal of the AAHCP continues to be to help consumers make educated decisions about the quality of their healthcare."  

“This honor is a reflection of the more than 1,300 PMC care partners (employees, volunteers and physicians) who dedicate their lives to fulfilling our mission of providing healing experiences to everyone all the time,” said PMC President/CEO George Mikitarian.

AAHCP has hosted the Hospital of Choice Awards since 2002. For further information, please contact Simone Peterson at 703-655-1381, or by email at choiceawards@aahcp.com.
