UNC Health Care administers the CG-CAHPS (Clinician and Group Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) survey to solicit feedback from our patients. The survey asks our patients if they would recommend their provider’s office to their friends and family. Over the last year, for 171 of our providers, more than 95 percent of their patients responded “Yes, definitely!,” which places these providers in the top quartile nationally.

The 2017 UNC Health Care and UNC Faculty Physicians Award for Carolina Care Excellence is awarded in recognition of this achievement.

Of special note, 42 of our providers had 100 percent of their patients responded “Yes, definitely!” In addition, 93 providers are multi-year recipients of the Carolina Care Excellence Award.

We celebrate these physicians and advanced practice providers for helping to create an exceptional experience for all of our patients. We thank them for being exemplary in delivering Carolina Care with expertise and empathy.
