Baptist Memphis earns 17th consecutive Consumer Choice award

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - For the 17th year in a row, a majority of Memphis-area residents named Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis as their hospital of choice in a national survey.

The nationally syndicated Healthcare Market Guide Ticker study of nearly 450,000 consumers asked people which hospital in their community has the best overall quality, best image and reputation, best doctors and best nurses. Hospitals in more than 300 markets nationally were chosen, and the winning hospitals received Consumer Choice awards.

"Our employees and physicians are the reasons Memphians named Baptist Memphis as their hospital of choice for quality, doctors, nurses, and image and reputation for the 17th consecutive year," said Derick Ziegler, administrator and CEO of Baptist Memphis. “Our hospital’s dedication to premier technology and advanced health care further demonstrates our commitment to the Mid-South community."

The Baptist Memphis campus includes the 706-bed hospital that is the flagship of the Baptist Memorial Health Care system. It serves as a major referral center for patients from across the Mid-South and offers many diagnostic, surgical and rehabilitation services. The hospital has added hundreds of beds in the past few years, with the opening of a new patient tower and the Baptist Heart Institute.
