First Federal Community Bank Earns Bauer's Elite 5-Star Rating


BAUERFINANCIAL Inc., Coral Gables, Florida announces that First Federal Community Bank, N.A., Dover, Ohio has once again earned its coveted 5-Star Superior rating. Earning and sustaining Bauer's highest rating for the most recent 79th consecutive quarters, First Federal Community Bank has also put itself in the top 10% which carries with it the added designation of "Sustained Superiority".

"A 5-Star rating indicates that First Federal Community Bank is one of the strongest banks in the nation, excelling in such areas as capital, loan quality, profitability and much more. Earning the Sustained Superiority designation proves that First Federal Community Bank has been getting it right for a long time," expressed Karen L. Dorway, president of Bauer Financial, the nation's bank rating firm.

"BauerFinancial has been touting the benefits and mainstays of community banks since its inception in 1983," Dorway continues. "I am thrilled to be able to say that the January 2016 issue of Consumer Reports agrees. According to its own surveys, Consumer Reports concluded that smaller banks are best for personal service as they 'tend to focus more on relationships'; over three-quarters of respondents indicated they were' highly satisfied' in the CR survey."

First Federal Community Bank is no exception. Established in 1898, it has been tuned in to its customers' needs for 118 years.
