LGMC Wins 2015-16 Consumer Choice Award


Lafayette General Medical Center was named a 2015/2016 Consumer Choice Award winner by National Research Corporation (NRC). The annual award identifies hospitals across the United States that healthcare consumers choose as having the highest quality and image, as well as the best doctors and nurses. This is the seventh-consecutive Consumer Choice Award for LGMC. In fact, LGMC has been given the award every year NRC declared a winner in Acadiana.

“We work hard as an organization to make sure each one of our patients feels like they are second to none,” says Patrick W. Gandy, Jr., LGMC CEO. “So, this is a great boost for our staff to know that their work is appreciated by the people they serve.”

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.

“For each of the past 20 years, winning hospitals have provided outstanding experiences that have transcended their four walls to build consumer preference, loyalty, and trust in their markets. We are honored to congratulate this year’s winners on a job well done,” said Brian Wynne, Vice President of Business Development at National Research.
