Celebrating Carolina Care Excellence

Each year, UNC Health Care administers the CMS-approved Clinician and Group Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CG-CAHPS) survey to solicit feedback from patients. One question on that survey asks patients if they would recommend their provider's office to friends and family. One hundred and thirty three of our providers had more than 94 percent of their patients respond “Yes, definitely!” to that question, which places them in the top quartile nationally.

In recognition of this achievement, each of these providers will receive the 2016 UNC Health Care and UNC Faculty Physicians Award for Carolina Care Excellence. All of these individuals should be celebrated for their leadership in helping to create an exceptional experience for all of our patients.
