Magee Rehabilitation Hospital Named 16th in Rehabilitation in U.S. News Best Hospital Rankings
Magee Rehabilitation Hospital has been rated as high-performing in Rehabilitation in U.S. News&World Report's annual Best Hospital rankings. The annual U.S. News & World Report's Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 24th year, recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients. Magee is ranked 16th in the Philadelphia metro area and 34th in Pennsylvania. Out of 98 hospitals in the Philadelphia metro area, only 19 were top-ranked.
"We are excited to once again be recognized as one of the country's Best Hospitals," said Jack Carroll, President and CEO of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. "At Magee, we have always strived to maintain a culture of excellence. Exceeding the safety, quality and outcome expectations of the patients and families we have the privilege to serve requires the best of the best in both clinical and support services personnel. At Magee, that is accomplished by everyone always offering the difference that truly caring can make."
U.S. News evaluates hospitals in 16 adult specialties. In most specialties, it ranks the nations top 50 hospitals and recognizes other high-performing hospitals that provide care at nearly the level of their nationally ranked peers.
"A hospital that emerges from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of," said Avery Comarow, U.S. News Health Rankings Editor. "Only about 15 percent of hospitals are recognized for their high performance as among their region's best. Just 3 percent of all hospitals earn a national ranking in any specialty."
U.S. News publishes Best Hospitals to help guide patients who need a high level of care because they face particularly difficult surgery, a challenging condition, or added risk because of other health problems or age. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, the adequacy of nurse staffing levels and other data largely determined the rankings in most specialties.
The specialty rankings and data were produced for U.S. News by RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Using the same data, U.S. News produced the state and metro rankings. The rankings have been published at http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals and will appear in print in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2014 guidebook, available in bookstores and on newsstands August 27.
