NewYork-Presbyterian Named New York’s Top Hospital By U.S. News & World Report

This morning, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital — one of the largest and most comprehensive academic medical centers in the nation — is ranked New York’s No. 1 hospital for the 17th consecutive year (and No. 8 in the United States).

This distinction came in the published report from U.S. News and World Report’s annual survey of “Best Hospitals,” published online this morning.

The hospital has been once again included in the prestigious Honor Roll, which recognizes national excellence in multiple specialties.

All told, NewYork-Presbyterian ranks in the top five in six specialties: cardiology and heart surgery (No. 3), diabetes and endocrinology (No. 5), nephrology (No. 4), neurology/neurosurgery (No. 4), psychiatry (No. 4) and rheumatology (No. 3), a collaborative program with the Hospital for Special Surgery. The hospital also ranks in the top 50 for 14 specialties overall.

“Every day, our staff demonstrates a remarkable commitment to providing world-class care,” said Dr. Steven J. Corwin, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian. “Patients of all backgrounds know that they can come to us and be treated with compassion, dignity and respect, and they will have access to highly advanced, life-saving treatments from renowned physicians at Columbia University Medical Center and Weill Cornell Medicine. We are proud to be recognized as one of the best hospitals in the country.”
