MGSH_logoBaltimore—(July 16, 2013)—MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital has been named a top hospital in Maryland and in the Baltimore metro area by U.S. News & World Report, receiving high performance ratings in eight specialty areas including diabetes and endocrinology; gastroenterology and GI surgery; geriatrics; nephrology; neurology and neurosurgery; orthopaedics; pulmonology; and urology.

This year’s “Best Hospitals,” the 24th annual edition, ranks top hospitals in 16 different specialties from cancer to urology. Factors to measure performance include technology, hospital’s reputation among physicians, patient satisfaction and quality measures such as survival rates and nurse to patient ratio.

“It is a high honor to be recognized by U.S. News for the top level of quality care we provide to our patients,” said MedStar Good Samaritan President Jeffrey Matton. “Our team of dedicated physicians, nurses and associates are committed to achieving excellence in each and every one of our clinical areas.”

U.S. News created the “Best Hospitals” ranking system to identify the best medical centers for the most difficult patients—those whose illnesses pose unusual challenges because of underlying conditions, procedure difficulty, or other medical issues that add risk.

MedStar Good Samaritan shares the top list with several MedStar Health sister hospitals. A total of eight MedStar facilities were ranked as top regional hospitals, including MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center, MedStar Harbor Hospital and MedStar Union Memorial Hospital in the Baltimore region; and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, MedStar National Rehab Network and MedStar Washington Hospital Center in the Washington, D.C., region. MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital was ranked in both Maryland and the Washington, D.C., region.
