Martha’s Vineyard Hospital Named “High Performing” by  U.S. News & World Report 

OAK BLUFFS, MA – Martha’s Vineyard Hospital has been named “High Performing” in the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2023-2024 “Best Hospitals” rankings released today. 

This is the highest award a hospital can earn in the publisher’s Common Adult Procedure and Condition Ratings. 

“We are appreciative of this national recognition for treatment of patients with COPD,” said Denise Schepici, president and chief operating officer, “This is another shining example of the extraordinary care our patients receive from the outstanding medical team at Martha’s Vineyard Hospital.” 

U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 21 procedures and conditions; only 12% of evaluated hospitals earned a Best Hospitals ranking. Hospitals awarded a “Best” designation excelled at factors such as clinical outcomes, level of nursing care and patient experience.  

Mass General Brigham is honored to have five hospitals nationally recognized in U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” rankings. Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital once again earned spots on the Honor Roll among the top hospitals in the country. Brigham and Women’s Hospital is ranked #1 in the nation for obstetrics and gynecology. Three Mass General Brigham specialty hospitals – McLean Hospital, Spaulding Rehabilitation and Mass Eye and Ear – are also recognized for national excellence. McLean Hospital is ranked #1 in psychiatry. Spaulding Rehabilitation is #2 in rehabilitation. Mass Eye and Ear is ranked #4 in ophthalmology and #7 in otolaryngology (ear, nose, throat).  

Earlier this year, Mass General Brigham launched For Every Patient, a systemwide unified quality strategy that seeks to achieve the best possible outcomes for every patient. For Every Patient is a multi-year, evidence-based, data driven effort that will provide high-quality care that is effective, safe, personalized, and rooted in equity at every touchpoint, for every patient.
