U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals Ranking

Lowell General Hospital has been ranked as one of the best hospitals for 2014-15 in Massachusetts, ranking among the top 15 hospitals in the metropolitan Boston area and 18th overall in the state. The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 25th year, recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients.

“Lots of drive and dedication are put forth by every employee here at Lowell General Hospital, and this top institution ranking truly exhibits the tremendous hard work of Complete connected care,” said Joseph A. White, President of Lowell General Hospital. “We are delighted and proud to be one of the few community hospitals to receive this important recognition.”

Lowell General Hospital also earned high performance rankings in Diabetes and Endocrinology.

U.S. News & World Report evaluates hospitals in 16 adult specialties. In most specialties, it ranks the nation’s top 50 hospitals and recognizes other high-performing hospitals that provide care at nearly the level of their nationally ranked peers.

“A hospital that emerges from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of,” says U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. “Just 3 percent of the nearly 5,000 hospitals that were analyzed earn a national ranking in any specialty.”

U.S. News publishes Best Hospitals to help guide patients who need a high level of care because they face particularly difficult surgery, a challenging condition or extra risk because of age or multiple health problems. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, adequacy of nurse staffing levels and other data largely determined the rankings in most specialties.

The specialty rankings and data were produced for U.S. News by RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Using the same data, U.S. News produced the state and metro rankings.
