Nov. 12, 2013. OrthoCarolina, which has local offices in Boone, has been recognized with a Women’s Choice Award for Outstanding Patient Experience by a Physician Led Center. OrthoCarolina, the region’s leading orthopedic practice with a network of over 28 free-standing specialty locations, is the first independent physician-owned and led organization to receive the Women’s Choice Award.
“While we make every effort to accommodate the needs of each unique patient, we also realize that women are frequently the primary household decision-makers,” said Dr. Dan Murrey, CEO or OrthoCarolina.
“Women and families have busy lives and less time to make important decisions. Our goal is to offer top-quality, easy-to-navigate, accessible healthcare.”
The Women’s Choice Awards, based on exceptional satisfaction patient ratings, empower women to make smart choices by identifying businesses that collectively are the most recommended and trusted by women and meet the unique needs and preferences of female patients. A highly exclusive award, it is the only recognition that nine out of ten women said would influence their decision when choosing a brand.
“We are delighted to recognize OrthoCarolina, our first independent physician-owned and led organization, to receive the Women’s Choice Award for outstanding patient experience,” said Belia Passi, CEO of WomenCertified, the parent company of the Women’s Choice Award.
“Their partnership in carrying the Women’s Choice Award seal reflects OrthoCarolina’s commitment to meeting the unique needs and preferences of their female patients. On behalf of women and families in your community, we applaud OrthoCarolina.”
According to the Women’s Choice Award website, women account for 85 percent of all consumer purchases and are one of the most important consumer segments, but studies show that businesses do not meet the customer experiences and needs they seek. The Women’s Choice Awards aim to identify companies that work to exceed women’s expectations while offering a positive experience. For more information, visit womenschoiceaward.com.
