Mercy Named Best Large System in U.S. for Excellent Patient Care

(Jefferson County) Mercy has earned the 2022 Excellence in Patient Experience Award as the top large health system in the country for patient experience, a distinction made by NRC Health, a leader in building personalized health care solutions and data-driven insights.

Mercy hospital spokesman Joe Poelker says NRC Health’s 2022 Excellence in Patient Experience Award recognizes health systems and hospitals that have demonstrated their commitment to improving patients’ care experiences.

Award winners are selected based on the real-time “would recommend” ratings from patients.
