OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital Nationally Ranked in Neurology & Neurosurgery by U.S. News & World Report

COLUMBUS, Ohio – U.S. News & World Report has announced that OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital is once again ranked on its list of “America’s Best Hospitals” for neurology and neurosurgery in 2015-2016. The magazine ranks Riverside Methodist’s neuroscience program at 38 out of 50, last year the program ranked 42. Riverside Methodist Hospital is among the fewer than 150 hospitals to be nationally ranked out of approximately 5,000 hospitals nationwide. The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 26th year, recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients.

“This year’s recognition is punctuated by the opening of the OhioHealth Neuroscience Center, another example of OhioHealth’s commitment to leading neuroscience care,” said Janet Bay, MD, physician vice president of neuroscience for OhioHealth. “This ranking is a testament to the work of our leaders, physicians and associates, not just at Riverside Methodist, but all of OhioHealth. It shows the nation what we’ve known for years, and what others are starting to notice, that OhioHealth is a leader in neuroscience and we’re committed to becoming a destination for quality neuroscience care.”

The timing of this recognition is not surprising, considering the opening of the new OhioHealth Neuroscience Center at Riverside Methodist Hospital earlier this month, which will continue to elevate neuroscience care for the region.

U.S. News publishes Best Hospitals to help guide patients who need a high level of care because they face particularly difficult surgery, a challenging condition or extra risk because of age or multiple health problems. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, adequacy of nurse staffing and other data largely determined the rankings in most specialties.

Riverside Methodist also ranked as “high-performing” in gastroenterology & GI surgery, geriatrics, nephrology, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.

Grant Medical Center ranked as “high-performing” in gastroenterology & GI surgery, geriatrics, nephrology, neurology & neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.
