MILWAUKEE (Sept. 25, 2006) — For the fourth time in five years, Froedtert Hospital has been named a Consumer Choice Award winner for metropolitan Milwaukee by the National Research Corporation. The award recognizes hospitals across the United States that healthcare consumers believe have the highest quality and image.

To determine the winners, NRC conducts an annual survey of more than 400,000 consumers throughout the United States.
