Miriam named top regional hospital

Posted 7/22/13

PROVIDENCE – The Miriam Hospital was named the top hospital in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts for the second consecutive, according to rankings released by the magazine on July 16.

The annual U.S. News “Best Hospitals” rankings recognize hospitals across a number of categories, including 16 adult specialties. The magazine ranks the nation’s top 50 hospitals and recognizes other high-performing hospitals that provide care at nearly the level of their nationally ranked peers.

Only 15 percent of hospitals are recognized for their high performance as among their region’s best, and just 3 percent of all hospitals earn a national ranking in any specialty.

The rankings – now in their 24th year – are based on objective measures of hospital performance including reputation, patient safety, procedure volume, nurse staffing, mortality index and availability of medical technology.

The full list of rankings is available at health.usnews.com.

“Being recognized as the region’s top hospital for the second year in a row is a testament to the physicians, nurses, allied health professionals and staff whose commitment to excellence and quality allows us to provide outstanding, patient-centered care every single day,” said Arthur J. Sampson, president of The Miriam Hospital. “I’d like to congratulate the entire team at The Miriam Hospital on this well-deserved honor.”

The Miriam Hospital was recognized as high performing in eight medical specialties, including: cancer, diabetes/endocrinology, gastroenterology and surgery, geriatrics, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, pulmonology and urology.
