“As a leading academic health system and the only Level 1 Trauma Center in southern New Jersey, patients rely upon us to provide advanced medical care and the highest level of clinical expertise.  We are exceptionally proud to be recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a top hospital in New Jersey as well as the growing number of specialties to earn a top-performing hospital ranking,” said Anthony J.

The U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals rankings are intended to help patients with rare or life-threatening conditions make informed decisions about where to receive care. This year’s U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals list ranks hospitals in 16 specialties: cancer; cardiology and heart surgery; diabetes and endocrinology; ear, nose and throat; gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery; geriatrics; gynecology; nephrology; neurology and neurosurgery; ophthalmology; orthopedics; pulmonology; psychiatry; rehabilitation; rheumatology; and urology. 

This is the 32nd year for the survey. The rankings — which compare more than 4,500 medical centers across the country — are based primarily on objective measures, such as risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety, and quality of nursing.
