NSMC News Releases
Salem, Mass. (July 21, 2015) - North Shore Medical Center (NSMC) has been ranked among the top five Best Hospitals in the Boston Metro Area and among the top six in Massachusetts by U.S. News & World Report.
NSMC joins an esteemed array of medical centers including Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Newton Wellesley Hospital in receiving the U.S. News & World Report honors.
“NSMC’s recognition as a top hospital in Boston reflects the commitment of our exceptional staff. Their unwavering attention to the highest standards of care continues to improve our performance as a top healthcare provider on the North Shore, and one of the best in Boston,” said Robert G. Norton, NSMC President.
In rankings by state and metro area, U.S. News recognized hospitals that perform best in one or more specialties, as well as hospitals that excel in multiple common procedures and conditions. In addition to top regional honors, NSMC is also being recognized as a high-performing hospital in hip replacement, knee replacement and heart failure care.
“This honor confirms, once again, that NSMC is a premier health care provider in Massachusetts," said Mitchell Rein, M.D., Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of Medical Affairs at NSMC. “Each member of our team shares in this honor, and makes a daily commitment to putting patients first.”
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 extra risk because of age or complex health status. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, and other measures 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. U.S. News used the same data, as well as the new Best Hospitals for Common Care ratings, first published in May, to produce the state and metro rankings.
North Shore Medical Center (NSMC) is a multi-site health system headquartered in Salem, Mass., which includes NSMC Salem Hospital, NSMC Union Hospital in Lynn, MassGeneral for Children at North Shore Medical Center, NSMC Heart Center, and the physician network known as North Shore Physicians Group. NSMC and Massachusetts General Hospital together provide care at the Mass General/North Shore Center for Outpatient Care and the Mass General/North Shore Cancer Center in Danvers.
