White Plains Hospital has once again been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a Best Regional Hospital for 2021/22 – the only hospital in Westchester to receive the accolade for three consecutive years (2019-2021).
In addition to earning Best Regional Hospital, White Plains Hospital ranked as “High Performing” for an array of advanced specialties, including: back surgery, colon cancer surgery, lung cancer surgery, and care for conditions like COPD, diabetes, heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure, pneumonia, and stroke.
“As we learned during the pandemic, having access to advanced medical care close to home is critical in Westchester,” said White Plains Hospital President and CEO Susan Fox. “To once again be honored as a Best Regional Hospital confirms our commitment to supporting the full spectrum of healthcare for the community we serve.”
Fox further noted, “With the opening of our Center for Advanced Medicine & Surgery in June and the expansion of our cardiac program to include open heart surgery in the fall, White Plains Hospital remains at the forefront of complex care in Westchester County.”
The ratings are based on a rigorous U.S. News methodology that factors in a hospital’s performance in areas such as patient survival and care-related factors such as nursing, technology and patient services, as well as reputation.
