U.S. News Ranks Holy Name Medical Center "High-Performing" in Five Specialties

Date: 8/1/2011

Teaneck, NJ. - Holy Name Medical Center has been ranked "High-Performing" in the specialties of Geriatrics, Nephrology, Neurology & Neurosurgery, Pulmonology and Urology and earned the overall ranking of #26 in the New York metro area in U.S. News Media & World Report's 2011-12 Best Hospitals rankings. The latest rankings showcase 720 hospitals out of about 5,000 hospitals nationwide. Each is ranked among the country's top hospitals in at least one medical specialty and/or ranked among the best hospitals in its metro area.

According to Holy Name's President/CEO Michael Maron, "Holy Name's inclusion among the region and nation's highest-performing hospitals, according to the independent and prestigious U.S. News and World Report, is yet another testament to the skilled inpatient care we provide to our patients. We are proud to have received this recognition and extremely pleased that five of our specialties have been ranked as high-performing."

The core mission of Best Hospitals is to help guide patients who need an especially high level of care because of a difficult surgery, a challenging condition, or added risk because of other health problems or age. "These are referral centers where other hospitals send their sickest patients," said Avery Comarow, U.S. News Health Rankings Editor. "Hospitals like these are ones you or those close to you should consider when the stakes are high."

"These are hospitals we call 'high performers.' They are fully capable of giving most patients first-rate care, even if they have serious conditions or need demanding procedures," Comarow said. "Almost every major metro area has at least one of these hospitals."

Hard numbers stand behind the rankings in most specialtiesódeath rates, patient safety, procedure volume, and other objective data. Responses to a national survey, in which physicians were asked to name hospitals they consider best in their specialty for the toughest cases, also were factored in. The rankings cover 16 medical specialties and all 94 metro areas that have at least 500,000 residents and at least one hospital that performed well enough to be ranked.
