Princeton Medical Center (PMC) was recognized as a Best Regional Hospital and rated high performing in hip replacement, knee replacement, and treating heart failure in the 2019-2020 Best Hospitals rankings published this week by U.S. News & World Report.

PMC is part of the University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS), which, together with the University of Pennsylvania’s Raymond and Ruth Perelman School of Medicine, forms Penn Medicine. All UPHS hospitals received national or regional accolades in the U.S. News rankings, with Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) and Penn Presbyterian Medical Center combining to rank on the magazine’s national Best Hospitals Honor Roll.

This year is the fifth in a row that PMC received recognition as a Best Regional Hospital in the U.S. News ratings, which are based on data related to clinical outcomes and patient safety, as well as indicators such as patient satisfaction surveys and whether a hospital holds Magnet® recognition, the highest institutional recognition available for nursing excellence. PMC also was ranked the No. 11 hospital in New Jersey and No. 26 among hospitals in the entire New York metropolitan region.

“Congratulations and thank you to our physicians, staff and volunteers,” said Barry S. Rabner, President and CEO of Penn Medicine Princeton Health, which includes PMC. “Recognition like this is the result of the compassionate and collaborative care that everyone in our organization provides to our patients every day.”
