Buffalo General Medical Center was given a 2016-17 Consumer Choice Award by the National Research Corp. for a third year in a row.
The annual award identifies hospitals across the U.S. that health care consumers choose as having the highest quality and image.
Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital also received an award.
“The BGMC team continues to receive national recognition for their expertise and dedication to patient care,” medical center President Chris Lane said in a news release. This Consumer Choice Award recognizes our frontline staff–those at the bedside. Our team continues to set new standards of excellence.”
Winners are determined by consumer perceptions on multiple quality and image ratings collected in the company’s Market Insights survey, the largest online consumer healthcare survey in the country.
National Research surveys more than 300,000 households in the contiguous 48 states and the District of Columbia. Hospitals named by consumers are analyzed and ranked based on Core Based Statistical Areas defined by the U.S. Census Bureau, with winning facilities being ranked the highest.
