US News and World Report’s best Hospital guide came out today, and…drum roll please…the neurosciences program at New York Presbyterian hospital has moved up to take the number two spot in the nation (that’s us)!
This means that of the 1,358 hospitals reviewed that have neurology and neurosurgery departments with at least 332 inpatient cases from the years 2010 to 2012, our group came up second. The Columbia University Medical Center Department of Neurosurgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital is proud to be part of the #2 neuroscience program in the country.
Last year, neurosciences here at New York Presbyterian was ranked third, and the year before we were fourth in the country. “Moving up each year in ranking to the current number two spot,” said Dr. Robert Solomon, Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery, “is due to our devotion to achieving the best possible outcomes for each patient by providing top quality care from an expert team of highly experienced doctors, nurses and support staff here at Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital.”
Another highlight this year is that New York Presbyterian hospital was ranked overall as the number one hospital in New York State and number six in the nation.
This placed us at the top of the US News and World Report Honor Roll, a short list of hospitals that are ranked above all others. “We sifted through data for nearly 5,000 hospitals and results from surveys of more than 9,500 physicians to rank the best centers in 16 adult specialties,” it says on the US New and World Report website, “The Honor Roll features 17 Best Hospitals that scored near the top in at least six specialties.”
Thank you to all the doctors in the Department of Neurosurgery, the support team in our department, and to the staff at this exceptional hospital for the hard work that has led to these stellar rankings.
