Second Year Milford Regional Named a Best Regional Hospital by U.S. News & World Report

Milford Regional Medical Center has been recognized for the second consecutive year in U.S. News & World Report’s 2012-2013 Best Hospitals’ rankings as one of the region’s top performing hospitals in the Worcester Metropolitan area. The Medical Center was also named one of the top-ranked hospitals out of 30 in central and western Massachusetts and ranked 19 out of 115 hospitals statewide.

The latest rankings showcase 732 Best Regional Hospitals from nearly 4,800 hospitals across the country. Covering 94 metro areas in the U.S., the regional hospital rankings complement the national rankings by including hospitals with solid performance nearly at the level of nationally ranked institutions. Hard numbers stand behind the rankings in most specialties- death rates, patient safety, procedure volume, and other objective data. Responses to a national survey, in which physicians were asked to name hospitals they consider best in their specialty for the toughest cases, also were factored in.

Milford Regional was ranked high performing in pulmonology and scored high in patient safety, demonstrating commitment to reducing accidents and medical mistakes. The Medical Center also exceeded the statewide average in patient satisfaction surveys achieving high “overall” and “willingness to recommend” ratings.

“Being recognized as one of the region’s best hospitals for the second year in a row affirms the hard work and dedication of our physicians, nurses, ancillary/support staff, volunteers and trustees. Working together, it is our mission to provide leading-edge diagnostics, clinical excellence and state-of-the-art treatments to our patients,” states Edward J. Kelly, president of Milford Regional. “I’d like to congratulate everyone at Milford Regional for this honor.”
