Repetition can be boring, but this is one announcement we will never tire of making: US News & World Report’s annual rankings of hospitals and graduate schools are in, and Columbia University Medical Center/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital once again takes top honors.
In fact, this is the 16th consecutive year that Columbia has been named in US News’ National Honor Roll. This year the hospital rose to #6 in the nation, while maintaining its #1 ranking in the state.
Only 20 hospitals in the nation, and only one other in New York, earned a spot on this prestigious list. The National Honor Roll recognizes hospitals that achieve all-around excellence and outstanding performance across multiple areas of care.
US News & World Report ranks hospitals not only on their overall levels of excellence, but also on specialties. The Department of Neurosurgery is especially proud that Columbia ranked #3 nationally and #1 in the state among best hospitals for adult neurology and neurosurgery.
This ranking was based on many different factors including patient safety, nurse to patient ratio, advanced technologies, and patient services.
A top-ranked hospital requires top-ranked doctors. US News and World Report has also ranked Columbia in the top 10 of the best medical schools for research. Not only that, but Columbia’s medical school is the only school in the state of New York to be ranked in the top 10.
It is a tremendous achievement to maintain these standards of excellence. Congratulations to the doctors and the supporting team members at Columbia.
