U.S. News & World Report Ranks BWH #6 in Honor Roll of Best Hospitals

BWH advances three spots to its highest-ever ranking

Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) advanced three spots to rank sixth on the U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll of America's Best Hospitals in 2015. This is the 23rd consecutive year BWH has appeared on the Honor Roll.

"I'm extremely proud of our continued presence on the Honor Roll of Best Hospitals, which is possible because of our employees' steadfast commitment to carrying out our mission," said Betsy Nabel, MD, president of Brigham and Women's Hospital. "What makes BWH a world-class institution cannot be found within the criteria for one award or by analyzing clinical data. We are defined by the compassionate care we provide to our patients; by the research and innovation we pioneer to accelerate treatments and cures; by our pledge to advance the health of our local and global community; and by our unwavering dedication to training the next generation of health care professionals and leaders."

Thirteen BWH specialties achieved rankings, ten of which were in the top ten and six of which were in the top five.

BWH's sister institution, Massachusetts General Hospital, claimed the top spot on the Honor Roll, making Boston the only city with more than one hospital in the top ten.
