UMCPP Earns a Place on 100 Great Hospitals List

Apr 18, 2013

University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro (UMCPP) was named to this year's 100 Great Hospitals list, which is published annually by Becker's Hospital Review and includes some of the nation's best-known and well-respected hospitals.

Becker's Hospital Review, a magazine and website that provides news coverage geared toward hospitals and health systems, develops the list through nominations, its own research, and by considering recognition that a hospital has received for the quality of care it provides, clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction, management capabilities and cost-effectiveness. Becker's reviews hospital rankings by U.S. News & World Report, Truven Health Analytics' 100 Top Hospitals, HealthGrades, Magnet® Recognition by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the Studer Group and Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Awards.

In selecting UMCPP for the 100 Great Hospitals list, Becker's Hospital Review cited the hospital's new state-of-the-art campus in Plainsboro; the hospital's arrangement into distinct centers of care; its Magnet® status, the highest institutional recognition for nursing excellence; and partnerships with The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) for enhanced pediatric services and Penn Medicine for advanced maternal-fetal services for high-risk pregnancies.

In addition to UMCPP, the 2013 list includes The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Md.; Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.; Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio; Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital, two Boston-based teaching hospitals affiliated with Harvard University; Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, both in Philadelphia; and NYU Langone Medical Center and New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York.

"It's an honor to be listed in such company and to be recognized again for the quality and safety of our patient care," said Barry S. Rabner, President and CEO of Princeton HealthCare System, which includes UMCPP. "This shows the leadership of our Board and the passion and commitment of everyone in this organization, from our medical staff and nurses to all the other employees and volunteers who help serve our patients every day."
