White Plains, N.Y. (August 1, 2023) – White Plains Hospital has again been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a Best Regional Hospital for the fifth consecutive year. The Hospital earned the highest ranking among all hospitals in Westchester and the surrounding counties (Rockland, Putnam, Orange, and Dutchess).
In addition to earning Best Regional Hospital, White Plains Hospital has also been recognized as "High Performing" in several advanced specialties, including Neurology & Neurosurgery, Orthopedics, Urology, Gastroenterology & GI Surgery, Pulmonology and Lung Surgery, and Geriatrics. Additionally, the Hospital has demonstrated exceptional care in treating conditions such as heart attack, heart failure, stroke, colon cancer through surgery, COPD, diabetes, and pneumonia.
The ratings are based on U.S. News’ rigorous methodology that factors in a hospital’s performance in areas such as patient survival and care-related factors such as nursing, patient services and technology, as well as reputation.
“To be consistently ranked as a Best Regional Hospital is incredibly rewarding,” said Susan Fox, President & CEO of White Plains Hospital. “We have made it our mission to bring the highest quality advanced care to our community. We are proud to provide our patients with access to world-renowned physicians, the latest technology and an amazing staff that is solely focused on providing an exceptional experience.”
The U.S. News announcement comes on the heels of White Plains Hospital once again being awarded a five-star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and another “A” Safety Grade from the Leapfrog Group for the 9th consecutive time. White Plains Hospital is the only Hospital in the Hudson Valley and Fairfield County to earn five stars from CMS.
