White Plains Hospital Ranked One of the World’s Best Hospitals by Newsweek
White Plains, N.Y. (March 10, 2023) – White Plains Hospital has been named as one of the world’s best hospitals by Newsweek for the second year in a row. It is one of just 10 hospitals in the state, and the only one in Westchester County, to be included on the prestigious list. The World’s Best Hospitals 2023 list recognizes the best medical institutions across 28 countries, with 414 based in the United States.
Newsweek global editor-in-chief Nancy Cooper said the list is meant to “be useful to patients and families seeking the best care for themselves and loved ones, as well as to hospitals as they benchmark themselves against their peers.”
Newsweek teamed with market data research firm Statista to develop a rigorous methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the rankings. Four data sources were used for the evaluation, including an international online survey of more than 80,000 doctors, hospital managers and health care professionals; patient experience surveys measuring patient satisfaction with hospitals; hospital quality metrics on outcomes, hygiene measures, patient safety, and staffing; and patient-reported outcome measures
“Being recognized as one of the world’s best hospitals serves as further evidence that we continue to make a real difference in the lives of patients through the exceptional care we provide,” said Dr. Michael Palumbo, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer at White Plains Hospital, noting the impressive number of accolades the Hospital has received over the past couple of years. A full list of those honors can be found here.
