Stony Brook University Hospital has been ranked nationally for orthopaedics by U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals 2019-2020 survey; this assessment is designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to seek care.
“I am very proud that our orthopaedic surgical team has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top orthopaedic programs in the nation,” stated Dr. Lawrence Hurst, Chief of the Division of Hand Surgery and the Director of Microsurgical Laboratories for the Department of Orthopaedics. “This ranking is testimony to the hard work our surgeons dedicate to patient care, research and surgical education on a daily basis."
Overall ranking is based on a combination of patient outcomes, such as discharge-to-home and risk-adjusted survival rates, in addition to processes of care and resources, including patient experience, patient and clinical services, number of patients, quality of nursing, and opinions from over 30,000 physicians.
