Newark Beth Israel Medical Center was named among of the nation’s top 50 hospitals for specialty care in Cardiology and Heart Surgery for the third consecutive year. The U.S. News & World Report’s 2011-2012 Best Hospital rankings identify hospitals that excel in medical and surgical care based on a variety of rigorous criteria.
The Heart Center at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, an affiliate of Barnabas Health, is one of only two hospitals in New Jersey to achieve this status and is listed among the nation’s premier heart centers.
The core mission of Best Hospitals is to help guide patients who need an especially high level of care because of a difficult surgery, a challenging condition, or added risk because of other health problems or age. “These are referral centers where other hospitals send their sickest patients,” said Avery Comarow, U.S. News Health Rankings Editor. “Hospitals like these are ones you or those close to you should consider when the stakes are high.”
Hospital rankings were determined through the measurement of objective data from 4,825 hospitals throughout the nation. Factors measured included the hospital’s reputation for taking care of the most complex and difficult cases, survival rate, patient safety, and quality factors such as nurse staffing and technology.
“This impressive designation for the third year in a row underscores our team’s expertise and commitment to bringing the finest cardiac care to New Jersey and the surrounding region,” said John A. Brennan, MD, Executive Director of Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of New Jersey.
