Newark, NJ, March 20, 2023 – Newark Beth Israel Medical Center (NBIMC) has been named to the 2023 Newsweek list of World’s Best Hospitals. It is the fifth consecutive year that the hospital has been included on the Newsweek listing, which recognized the best medical institutions across 27 countries and makes NBIMC one of 414 U.S. hospitals – and among seven New Jersey hospitals named. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.
“We are honored to have been named by Newsweek as one of the World’s Best Hospitals every year since the list’s inception in 2019. This continued recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire Newark Beth Israel Medical Center team, and our commitment to delivering world class care and an excellent experience to our patients and visitors,” said Darrell K. Terry, Sr., MHA, MPH, FACHE, FHELA, President and Chief Executive Officer, Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of New Jersey.
The Newsweek recognition is meant to identify quality care and provide a guide for patients and their families and was developed using a complex methodology to ensure quality and validity. Three data sources included recommendations from an international online survey sent to more than 80,000 doctors, hospital managers and healthcare professionals; patient satisfaction surveys; and key indicators, including patient safety, hygiene measures, and quality of treatment. Additionally, the 2023 list was scored using a new category regarding the implementation status of Patient-Reported Outcome Measures that are compiled using standardized and validated questionnaires that evaluate how patients feel about their health.
Developed using a complex methodology to ensure quality and validity, the Newsweek recognition provides a guide for patients and their families. In announcing the 2023 list this week, Newsweek said that institutions on their list all share the quality of consistency – consistently attracting the best people, providing the best patient outcomes and implementing the most important new therapies and research. Newsweek notes that of all the hospitals in the world, relatively few can do all of these things year in and year out.
