Miriam ranked best hospital in R.I.

Posted:

NEW YORK – Miriam Hospital was rated the best hospital in Rhode Island on the U.S. News and World Report’s annual ranking of the best hospitals in the U.S.

The Providence-based, 247-bed hospital performed at nearly the level of nationally ranked U.S. News Best Hospitals in seven adult specialties – diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, geriatrics, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, pulmonology and urology.

Eighty-four percent of patients said they would definitely recommend Miriam Hospital to their family and friends, while 3 percent said they would definitely or probably not recommend Miriam.

Comparatively, both the state and national average for patients definitely recommending a hospital to family and friends is 69 percent. On average, 6 percent of patients at a Rhode Island hospital said they would definitely or probably not recommend it to family and friends and 5 percent of patients across the nation said they would definitely or probably not recommend a specific hospital to family and friends.

Rhode Island Hospital ranked second out of the 16 Ocean State hospitals on the U.S. News list. The hospital performed nearly at the level of nationally ranked U.S. News Best Hospitals in three adult specialties – gastroenterology, nephrology and urology.

Sixty-seven percent of patients said they would definitely recommend Rhode Island Hospital to their family and friends, while 6 percent said they would definitely or probably not recommend it.

Providence-based Women & Infants Hospital ranked third in Rhode Island, performing nearly at the level of nationally ranked U.S. News Best Hospitals in both cancer and gynecology.

Eighty-five percent of patients said they would definitely recommend Women & Infants to their family and friends, while only 1 percent said they would definitely or probably not recommend it.

The 119-bed Newport Hospital ranked fourth in the state, performing nearly at the level of nationally ranked U.S. News Best Hospitals in only geriatrics.

None of Rhode Island’s 12 remaining hospitals were considered “High-Performing” in an adult specialty.
