New York City-based Hospital for Special Surgery was named the No. 1 hospital for orthopedics for the 14th year in a row by U.S. News & World Report.
The hospital was also named No. 2 in rheumatology nationwide, moving up from its 2022 ranking, according to an Aug. 1 news release.
U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties for its rankings. Metrics including outcomes, patient experience and available orthopedic technology were factored into ranking data.
In 2022 HSS clinicians saw more than 200,000 patients, and more than 38,000 orthopedic surgeries were performed.
"Our 160 years of focus on musculoskeletal conditions is a distinguishing feature of HSS, enabling us to provide highly specialized care that benefits our patients and leads to the most reliably superior outcomes," Bryan Kelly, MD, incoming CEO, said in the release. "The high rankings reflect our special expertise, our strong dedication to evidence-based medicine, our constant focus on safety, and our steadfast commitment to research and innovation to advance the field of musculoskeletal care."
"Individuals with rheumatic diseases face many challenges and we are committed to providing the most advanced, personalized and compassionate care for each of our patients," S. Louis Bridges Jr., MD, PhD, physician-in-chief and chief of rheumatology, said in the release. "We are proud to be recognized for excellence by U.S. News and will continue to work as a team to maintain the highest standards of care and improve our patients' lives."
