Aug 4, 2016
University Medical Center of Princeton (UMCP) was recognized as a Best Regional Hospital and rated high performing in five procedures and conditions in the 2016-17 Best Hospitals rankings published earlier this week by U.S. News & World Report.
In addition to being named among the best hospitals in central New Jersey, UMCP was ranked as the No. 8 hospital in New Jersey and No. 18 in the New York metropolitan region.
UMCP rated as high performing in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), colon cancer surgery, heart failure, hip replacement and knee replacement.
"It's significant when a respected, independent voice praises the quality of care that we provide," said Barry S. Rabner, President and CEO of Princeton HealthCare System (PHCS), which includes UMCP. "These ratings are based on objective data related to outcomes, patient safety and readmissions, as well as indicators such as patient satisfaction and Magnet® recognition of our nursing standards. Earning five high performing ratings is a testament to the exceptional work that our employees and physicians do every day."
