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

Us News & World Report Best Regional HospitalMilford Regional Medical Center has been recognized for the fourth consecutive year in U.S. News & World Report’s 2014-2015 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 four top-ranked hospitals out of 30 in central and western Massachusetts and ranked 15 out of 116 hospitals statewide.

The latest rankings showcase 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 geriatrics and pulmonology and scored high in patient safety, demonstrating commitment to reducing accidents and medical mistakes. The Medical Center also exceeded the state and national 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 fourth year in a row is a real testament to 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.”
