Consumers in Pierce County have once again chosen MultiCare Tacoma General as a top destination for receiving health care, according to the largest and most comprehensive consumer study of U.S. health care.

For the 17th time, Tacoma General Hospital ranks No. 1 as the region’s preferred choice for health care. The hospital received the 2014-2015 Consumer Choice Award, as chosen by local residents surveyed by National Research Corporation.

When asked to name their most-preferred hospital, people chose Tacoma General based on criteria such as best overall quality, best image and reputation, best doctors and best nurses.

“This award validates our employees’ commitment to providing skilled and compassionate care to our community,” said Shelly Mullin, RN, president of the West Pierce Region. “The achievement is especially rewarding because our hard work was recognized by the people who matter most: The people we serve. I am extremely proud of our team.”

St. Joseph Medical Center is a co-recipient of this award in Pierce County. For the study, National Research surveyed more than 290,000 households from September 2013 to August 2014.

The award is a vote of confidence in MultiCare’s commitment to being the region’s trusted provider of health care. MultiCare Tacoma General provides Level 2 Adult Trauma Services, an expanded Emergency Department, Heart Hospital, Birth Center and Level IV NICU, and Tacoma’s only Baby Friendly hospital, as certified by the World Health Organization and UNICEF.

MultiCare Tacoma General Hospital first received the Consumer Choice Award in 1996.
