U.S. News and World Report Names Holy Name Medical Center Among the Best Hospitals in New Jersey
Ranked #7 in NJ for Outstanding Patient Care
TEANECK, N.J., July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Holy Name Medical Center has been ranked as one of the best hospitals for 2014-15 by U.S. News & World Report. The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients.
“We are honored by this recognition, which reflects our commitment to delivering high quality, compassionate care as efficiently as possible,” says Michael Maron, President & CEO, Holy Name Medical Center.
Holy Name is ranked #7 among hospitals in New Jersey and is recognized among the Best Hospitals in Northern New Jersey. It also is ranked #17 in the New York metro area.
U.S. News recognized Holy Name as a high-performing hospital in nine key specialties:
-- Diabetes & Endocrinology -- Gastroenterology & GI Surgery -- Geriatrics -- Gynecology -- Nephrology -- Neurology & Neurosurgery -- Orthopedics -- Pulmonology -- Urology
For 2014-15, U.S. News evaluated hospitals in 16 adult specialties and ranked the top 50 in most of the specialties. Just 3 percent of the nearly 5,000 hospitals that were analyzed for Best Hospitals 2014-15 earned national ranking in even one specialty.
U.S. News also recognizes hospitals that perform nearly at the level of their nationally ranked peers and represent valuable regional sources of quality care.
“The data tell the story – a hospital that emerged from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of,” says U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. “A Best Hospital has demonstrated its expertise in treating the most challenging patients.”
U.S. News publishes Best Hospitals to help guide patients who need a high level of care because they face particularly difficult surgery, a challenging condition or extra risk because of age or multiple health problems. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, adequacy of nurse staffing levels and other data largely determined the rankings in most specialties.
The specialty rankings and data were produced for U.S. News by RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Using the same data, U.S. News produced the state and metro rankings. The rankings are available at http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals and will appear in the U.S. News “Best Hospitals 2015″ guidebook, available in August.
