The magazine’s 2020-21 Best Hospitals ratings, published online today, named PMC as the No. 9 hospital in New Jersey and No. 24 in the New York metropolitan region. PMC also was rated high performing in one specialty — orthopaedics — and three common procedures or conditions: hip replacement, knee replacement, and heart failure.

The ratings are based largely on data related to clinical outcomes and patient safety, as well as patient satisfaction surveys and indicators such as whether a hospital holds Magnet® status, the highest institutional recognition available for nursing excellence.

“Ratings like this reflect the high-quality, compassionate care that our physicians and staff provide every day,” said Barry S. Rabner, president and CEO of Penn Medicine Princeton Health. “We view this as a total team effort. Providers and employees throughout Princeton Health support the care provided at the hospital, and we all share in this recognition.”
