Two North Shore hospitals earned a place on U.S. News & World Report’s “Honor Roll” of the best 22 hospitals in the country, the publication announced Tuesday.
Northwell Health’s North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset and NYU Langone Health’s hospitals, which has a Mineola facility, are in a four-way tie for the top spot in New York.
The two hospitals are joined by Mount Sinai Hospital and New York-Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia and Cornell in New York City, which were also named to the honor roll.
Northwell President and CEO Michael Dowling said the rankings are a testament to the network’s team.
“We are proud to see Northwell recognized as New York State’s most-awarded health system,” Dowling said in a statement. “These last few years have been challenging, but we have never stopped working to raise the health of the patients and communities we serve.”
“What remains clear is that NYU Langone Health continues to provide our patients with the best outcomes, as evidenced by the broad spectrum of independent arbiters that consistently recognize our excellence,” said Langone CEO Robert Grossman.
Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park and St. Francis Hospital & Heart Center in Roslyn were tied for sixth-best hospitals in New York, according to the publication.
Huntington Hospital, Bay Shore’s South Shore University Hospital and Stony Brook University Hospital were ranked as the 11th, 12th and 13th best hospitals in the state, respectively.
Mount Sinai South Nassau Hospital in Oceanside and Plainview Hospital were tied for 29th best in New York.
U.S. News this year did not give numbered rankings to the honor roll but did for specialties, which the Long Island facilities placed highly in.
North Shore had a No. 10 ranking nationally for orthopedics, pulmonology and lung surgery. The Manhasset hospital had nine specialties in the top 50 rankings.
Long Island Jewish also had nine specialties ranked, with its highest being a No. 11 ranking for obstetrics and gynecology.
Langone’s neurology and neurosurgery specialty ranked first nationally for the second year in a row while nine others had top-10 national rankings.
St. Francis had eight specialties ranked, with geriatrics being the highest at No. 23 nationally.
Charles Lucore, St. Francis CEO said the recognition shows their commitment to providing quality care.
“We take great pride in raising the bar of care for our Long Island community with these outstanding national rankings,” Lucore said in a statement. “Ultimately, our patients are the ones who benefit from these achievements.”
