BID-Plymouth Named Among Best in Neurology and Neurosurgery by U.S. News and World Report
PLYMOUTH – For the second year in a row, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth (BID-Plymouth) has been ranked as one of the best regional, high-performing hospitals in Neurology & Neurosurgery for 2014-15 by U.S. News & World Report. The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 25th year, recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients.
BID-Plymouth was ranked #18 out of 116 hospitals in Massachusetts and #13 out of 77 hospitals in the Boston metro area for its “high-performing” specialty--Neurology & Neurosurgery. “We are honored to be recognized among the best in Massachusetts, and our region, for Neurology and Neurosurgery,” says BID-Plymouth President Peter Holden. “Our neurologists and neurosurgeons have trained at some of the best academic medical centers in the U.S. and provide top-notch, patient-centered care.”
BID-Plymouth neurologists and neurosurgeons see patients with a variety of issues including, spine disorders, seizures, sleep issues, migraine and multiple sclerosis, to name a few.
U.S. News evaluates hospitals in 16 adult specialties. In most specialties, it ranks the nation’s top 50 hospitals and recognizes other high-performing hospitals that provide care at nearly the level of their nationally ranked peers.
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 added risk because of other health problems or age. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, the 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.
