Northern Westchester Hospital announced on Wednesday that it has been ranked as one of the best hospitals in New York for 2014-15 by U.S. News & World Report.

The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in its 25th year, recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients. In addition, Northern Westchester Hospital was recognized regionally for expertise in gynecology, geriatrics, orthopedics and neurosurgery.

U.S. News evaluated hospitals in 16 adult specialties and ranked the top 50 in most of the specialties. Just 12 percent of the nearly 5,000 hospitals that were analyzed for Best Hospitals 2014-15 earned a regional ranking in even one specialty. NWH was ranked within five different specialties.

“Providing the highest level of quality, patient-centered care is our priority at Northern Westchester Hospital,” said NWH President and CEO Joel Seligman. “We have designed and implemented numerous processes that help to ensure that high quality care is consistently delivered to our patients. This recognition by U.S. News & World Report is further testament to the commitment by our physicians and staff to going the extra mile to care for our patients.”

“The data tell the story–a hospital that emerged from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of,” said U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. “A Best Hospital has demonstrated its expertise in treating the most challenging patients.”

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 multiple health problems. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, 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 full rankings are available at http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals.
