AMC was named No. 1 in the general hospital category of the 2016 Korean Net Promoter Score (KNPS) led by the Korean Management Association Consulting (KMAC) for two years in a row.
This is a survey of 12,000 customers in 97 domestic industries for their willingness to recommend purchased goods and services to others. Respondents were asked about their willingness to recommend AMC on a seven-point scale and the responses were as follows:
▲Definitely Yes 6.8%
▲Probably Yes 34.2%
▲Probably No 0.5%
▲Definitely No 0%.
AMC scored the highest, with 48.9 points among general hospitals with the “Unwillingness to recommend” response percentage excluded from the “Willingness to recommend” responses. The “Willingness to recommend” responses were 57.3%, which was a slight increase from last year’s 54.2%. Meanwhile, the “Unwillingness to recommend” responses were 8.4%, which was similar to last year’s 8.3%.
Reasons given for recommending AMC were
▲Quality of medical care 28.4%
▲Reliable medical professionals 25.9%
▲Medical staff’s service attitude 7.0%
▲Wait time 6.8%
▲Sufficient explanations for better patient understanding 6.7%
▲Medical facilities and equipment 6.7%
▲Convenient appointment scheduling 3.8%.
An official from KMAC said, “Recommendation is an action [by which] a customer willingly introduces and encourages others to experience the service that the customer has had. Enhancing patients’ willingness to recommend requires AMC to make a unique impression on them with distinguished medical services such as sophisticated surgeries and treatment.”
An official from the Team for Customer & Work Culture said that this result is significant in that most people consider carefully other people’s recommendations when selecting services, so an effort needs to be made to quickly identify the needs of customers to minimize their complaints and offer a positive experience.
AMC was also chosen as the top general hospital in the 2016 Best Companies to Work for Survey administered by the Great Places to Work (GPTW) Institute, which conducts extensive surveys of organizational culture. The online survey involved 32,513 respondents, including high school students, undergraduate students, job seekers, and employees from other companies.
