Both hospitals also named Best Hospitals for Infection Prevention
MARCH 1, 2023 – MORRISTOWN and SUMMIT, NJ – When it comes to providing excellent health care, Atlantic Health System’s Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center rank among not only the best in the nation, but also the world. That’s according to Newsweek, who for the fifth consecutive year have named both hospitals to their list of the World’s Best Hospitals. In addition, both Morristown and Overlook are ranked among the Best Hospitals for Infection Prevention in 2023.
More than 2,300 hospitals are included in this year’s global list, including 414 in the United States. Of the US hospitals ranked by Newsweek, Morristown is ranked #46 – above all New Jersey hospitals, and Overlook is ranked #167. These two Atlantic Health System medical centers join The Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins, and Massachusetts General among others on this prestigious list.
Newsweek and market and consumer data analytics company Statista partnered to develop a rigorous methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the ranking. Four data sources were used for the evaluation:
- Hospital Recommendations from Medical Experts: an international online survey that included more than 80,000 doctors, hospital managers and health care professionals
- Patient Experience: surveys measuring patient satisfaction with hospitals
- Hospital Quality Metrics: data on quality of care for treatments, hygiene measures, patient safety, and staffing
- PROMs Implementation: online survey on implementation and use of PROMs in hospitals
In 2021, Newsweek added a dimension for infection prevention to award US hospitals that performed better than the national average regarding healthcare associated infections. Both Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center achieved this distinction for the third year in a row.
“Clinical excellence and extraordinary outcomes are hallmarks of the care that our physicians, nurses and other caregivers provide everyday” said Trish O’Keefe, PhD, RN, president, Morristown Medical Center. “Whether using leading technology, innovative procedures or the warmth of a kind word, I am so appreciative of our entire team who goes the extra mile to deliver personalized care for every patient. This outstanding achievement is a testament to their dedication and expertise.”
“Every member of the Overlook team comes to work each day focused on raising the bar in health care and delivering an exceptional experience for our patients and their loved ones. Our culture of excellence has earned Overlook recognition by Newsweek year after year, and, more importantly, the trust of our communities,” said Stephanie Schwartz, president of Overlook Medical Center.
