Johns Hopkins Hospital was one of only two Maryland hospitals to receive this year's Hospital of Choice Award from the American Alliance of Healthcare Providers (AAHCP). The award recognizes America's most customer-friendly hospitals. Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury was the other Maryland hospital selected.
According to AAHCP, awards are given automatically to hospitals listed in U.S. News & World Report's annual Honor Roll listing. (U.S. News & World Report has listed Hopkins as the top hospital for the past 14 consecutive years.) Hospitals not listed by USN&WR who won Hospital of Choice Awards were selected based on AAHCP's national nursing survey and Hospital of Choice Award applications submitted to AAHCP by individual hospitals.
