July 27, 2022 – Oak Bluffs, MA – Martha’s Vineyard Hospital (MVH) is recognized by U.S. News & World Report as high performing for treatment in the procedure and condition of hip fracture. MVH is proud to join Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), the founding members of Mass General Brigham, that earned high marks in multiple specialties by U.S. News & World Report – with MGH earning the #8 spot on the Honor Roll of America’s Best Hospitals and Brigham and Women’s earning the #14 spot.

Of note this year, Brigham and Women’s is #1 in obstetrics and gynecology in the nation and McLean Hospital is #1 in psychiatry in the nation. These top honors come amid dual crises in mental health and access to women’s healthcare.

MVH President and CEO Denise Schepici praised the hospital and the system. “This recognition highlights our intense focus on the quality and care we provide our patients not only on the Island, but across our system. Our teams are dedicated and committed to delivering the best care to address the needs of our community. We are a stronger hospital, because of the support we receive from Mass General Brigham.”

Anne Klibanski, MD, President and CEO of Mass General Brigham added, “Having multiple nationally ranked hospitals, specialties, as well as outstanding regional rankings is a remarkable achievement. We are immensely proud of the research and innovation across our system and, most of all, of the quality of care and empathy that our staff delivers every day to patients and their families, especially in these unprecedented times.”

Mass General Brigham remains the only health system nationwide with five nationally ranked hospitals. For more than 30 years, hospital rankings have been used to help patients across the nation find the best hospital for their needs, according to U.S. News & World Report.

In addition to McLean Hospital, two other Mass General Brigham specialty hospitals also received extraordinary honors. Spaulding Rehabilitation was #1 in New England and ranked #3 in the nation for rehabilitation, marking the 5th year Spaulding has been a top three ranked hospital. Spaulding is the only rehabilitation hospital in New England ranked by U.S. News & World Report since 1995. Mass Eye and Ear (MEE) is #1 for otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat care) and ophthalmology in New England. MEE ranked #4 for both otolaryngology and ophthalmology in the nation.

In total, nine unique specialties at MGH and BWH were recognized in the top 10 nationally:

  • MGH: #2 diabetes and endocrinology, #3 psychiatry, #4 ear, nose and throat (in partnership with MEE), #4 ophthalmology (in partnership with MEE), #6 rheumatology, #7 cardiology and heart surgery, and #9 orthopedics.
  • BWH: #1 obstetrics and gynecology, #4 cancer (with Dana-Farber as the Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center), #5 rheumatology, and #10 cardiology and heart surgery.

In addition, based on U.S. News & World Report rankings:

  • MGH is the #1 hospital in New England
  • BWH is the #2 hospital in New England
  • Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital ranked #6 in Massachusetts and was recognized as high performing for treatment in three specialties: geriatrics, orthopedics, and urology.

For the 2022-23 rankings, U.S. News & World Report compared nearly 5,000 medical centers nationwide across 15 adult specialties and 20 procedures and conditions. Survival rates, patient safety, specialized staff, and hospital reputation were contributing factors in the rankings.

These rankings and honors for Mass General Brigham’s academic medical centers, specialty hospitals, and community hospitals validate the ongoing work to create the world’s leading patient-centered academic health system.
