DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke University Medical Center has won a Consumer Choice award for providing quality health care and was recognized as the most-preferred hospital in Durham and Raleigh in a nationwide consumer survey by the National Research Corporation. Winning facilities rank highest in their areas based on consumer perceptions of multiple quality and image ratings.
Winners appear in the Sept. 20, 2004, issue of Modern Healthcare magazine.
