WebMD Choice Awards

WebMD began awarding hospitals and health systems the WebMD® Patient Choice Award and Medscape® Physician Choice Award in 2021. The awards program identifies the “best in class” health systems in a local region from a consumer perspective, at the point in which that patient and/or loved one is actively seeking care for a specific condition. In addition, it identifies healthcare providers' perspectives on which health systems in their area they consider to be best for care. This unique vantage point is the first of its kind in the healthcare industry. The WebMD Patient Choice Award, Medscape Physician Choice Award, and WebMD Elite Choice Award selects health systems based on consumer and healthcare provider preferences in 28 regions across five specialties: Oncology, Cardiology, Orthopedics, Neurology, and Gastroenterology.
