SEATTLE, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Northwest Hospital & Medical Center today announced that it has been named the Favorite Healthcare Company in the Puget Sound area, according to the 2008 People's Picks Awards. The awards, sponsored by NWJobs.com and the Seattle Times, are given to organizations based on votes from the general public for their favorite Northwest employers. Northwest Hospital was chosen over nine other finalists in the healthcare category.
