The Bronx’s largest employer, Montefiore Medical Center, was just ranked as the 6th best hospital in the New York region by US News & World Report’s rankings for 2019-2020.
According to the ranking, it placed Montefiore at the top 1% in the nation for, “… complex specialty care in cancer, cardiology & heart surgery, neurology & neurosurgery, urology, nephrology, diabetes & endocrinology, gastroenterology & GI surgery, geriatrics and gynecology. “
The hospital also ranked High Performing for congestive heart failure, colon cancer surgery, COPD, and knee replacement according to a press release from the institution.
In terms of patient experience, however, Montefiore did poorly with only 2 out of 5 stars in that category and this is something we’ve seen many of our readers talk about in the past.
At any rate, it’s great to know we have such outstanding healthcare here in our borough.
Now if only we wouldn’t have such a paradox as the state’s unhealthiest borough.
