Holy Name Medical Center has been ranked as one of the best hospitals for 2013-14 in by U.S. News & World Report. The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients.
Holy Name Medical Center is ranked #8 among hospitals in New Jersey and is recognized among the Best Hospitals in Northern New Jersey. It also is ranked #21 in the New York metro area.
U.S. News recognized Holy Name as a high-performing hospital in nine key specialties:
"A hospital that emerges from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of," said Avery Comarow, U.S. News Health Rankings Editor. "Only about 15 percent of hospitals are recognized for their high performance as among their region's best. Just 3 percent of all hospitals earn a national ranking in any specialty."
- Diabetes & Endocrinology
- Gastroenterology & GI Surgery
- Neurology & Neurosurgery
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 added risk because of other health problems or age. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, the 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 have been published at http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals and will appear in print in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2014 guidebook, available in bookstores and on newsstands August 27.
