Orange Regional Medical Center is Named Among the Best Hospitals in New York State by U.S. News & World Report

October 24, 2013

Middletown, NY- Orange Regional Medical Center has been recognized as one of the best hospitals for 2013-14 in Pulmonary care by U.S. News & World Report. The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 24th year, recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients. 

“Receiving this prestigious ranking from U.S. News & World Report affirms our efforts in providing superior patient care,” said Orange Regional’s Vice President of Quality and Health Information Management, Rose Baczewski. “It’s a true testament to the work of our clinical and professional staff and a great measure of how we ensure our patients receive the best care.” 

U.S. News evaluates hospitals in 16 adult specialties. In most specialties, it 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. 

“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.
