Turns out not one, but two Tacoma hospitals received awards this week.
A news release came in today that St. Joseph Medical Center joins Tacoma General Hospital as winners of the National Research Corporation Consumer Choice Award. The two hospitals were voted the health care center where area consumers would like to be treated. The awards were published in the recent edition of the trade publication Modern Healthcare.
“The Consumer Choice Award is another testament to our hospital’s success at meeting the needs of patients and families,” said Joe Wilczek, president and CEO of the Franciscan Health System, which includes St. Joseph.
The award is a survey of households in the areas that the hospitals serve. St. Joseph and Tacoma General are two hospitals off 226 to make the list.
This is the 10th time St. Joseph has been awarded.
