U.S. News & World Report’s Honor Roll of America’s Best Hospitals is out today, and Partners HealthCare founding members Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) both received top ratings, with MGH again ranked first and BWH, sixth – the hospital’s best-ever ranking. Their achievements make Boston the only city in the country with two top-10 hospitals on this year’s Honor Roll.
McLean Hospital was also ranked fourth in the nation for psychiatry, and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital was ranked sixth nationwide for rehabilitation. At the regional level, MGH and BWH again received top rankings – first and second, respectively; North Shore Medical Center was ranked fifth and Newton-Wellesley Hospital, tenth. Partners hospitals also received high rankings in numerous medical specialties.
Partners hospitals weren’t the only local institutions to earn top rankings. Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Children’s Hospital, Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, and New England Baptist were also recognized as top-10 performers in one or more specialties.
“The Boston region is like no other in the US when it comes to health care excellence. It’s gratifying to see MGH recognized as the best in the nation and for the Brigham to receive its highest ever ranking,” said Partners President and CEO Dr. David Torchiana. We’d like to congratulate the thousands of employees behind these top ratings. It’s their hard work that brings our patients quality care, day after day, and we’re delighted to see their efforts recognized.
