U.S. News & World Report recently released their 2021-2022 Best Hospitals rankings and ratings. Hunterdon Medical Center was cited for “high performance” in two specialty areas, Geriatrics and Urology, and in five procedures/conditions, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Heart Failure, Kidney Failure, Pneumonia, and Stroke.

An overall rating of “high performance” indicates a hospital was significantly better than the national average in a given area of specialty, procedure, or condition. Only 10 to 20 percent of all hospitals evaluated fall into the high performing tier. In 2021, U.S. News & World Report evaluated more than 4,300 hospitals and reviewed performance in 15 adult specialties, 10 pediatric specialties, and 17 surgical procedures and medical conditions.  The data used by U.S. News & World Report to review each hospital’s performance in these areas includes measures captured by the American Hospital Association annual survey and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, among other sources. The purpose of these rankings is to help guide patients in need of medical care due to a difficult surgery, a challenging condition, or added risk because of other health problems or age, to hospitals demonstrating exemplary outcomes.

“Being recognized by U.S. News & World Report for our high performance in multiple areas and conditions is extremely important to the community we serve,” said Martin Klein, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Hunterdon Healthcare.  Klein added, “ It is a true honor and a testament to the incredible physicians and clinical team at Hunterdon Medical Center who are all committed to providing the highest quality of care right here, close to home and family.”
