MRMC CEO Doug Keir and Hospital Authority Member Ron Shipman pose with the award.

In making the announcement, Avatar Founder and CEO Dr. Michael Everett said, "The expectation data has instilled renewed motivation and insight into patient surveys. Hospitals must pause if they are merely monitoring satisfaction. Satisfaction does not give a benchmark into the minds of your patients - not until satisfaction scores are compared to your patients' expectations can you say: We are meeting and exceeding our patients' expectations. We at Avatar feel very fortunate to help hospitals make such a difference to each and every patient."

In accepting this award, McDuffie Regional Medical Center CEO Douglas C. Keir said, "Through the patient survey process, we understand patients' expectations for service quality. Our surveys are very important to our hospital to help us understand, monitor, and exceed our patients' expectations. We hope that all of our patients complete a survey when they receive it."
