Long Branch, NJ, April 19, 2022 – Monmouth Medical Center (MMC) has been named to the 2022 Newsweek list of World’s Best Hospitals.

It is one of just 414 of the more than 6,000 hospital hospitals in the United Stated named to Newsweek's Global Best Hospitals' list. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

The Newsweek recognition is meant to identify quality care and provide a guide for patients and their families and was developed using a complex methodology to ensure quality and validity. Three data sources included recommendations from an international online survey sent to more than 80,000 doctors, hospital managers and healthcare professionals; patient satisfaction surveys; and key indicators, including patient safety, hygiene measures, and quality of treatment.

According to the Newsweek report, the world's leading hospitals set themselves apart with a continued ability to deliver the highest-quality patient care and conduct critical medical research even as they focused on battling COVID-19. Hospitals faring best throughout the pandemic learned to work faster by communicating better, breaking down internal silos and innovating.

“We are so proud to be listed among the world’s best hospitals and hope this designation is helpful to patients and families seeking the best care for themselves and loved ones,” said MMC and Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus President and CEO Eric Carney. “This recognition comes on the heels of our recognition for a third time as a Top Teaching Hospital by The Leapfrog Group, which is widely acknowledged as one of the most competitive honors American hospitals can receive.”

The World’s Best Hospitals 2022 recognizes the best medical institutions across 27 countries, which in addition to the United States include Canada, Germany, France, UK, Switzerland, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Australia, Israel, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Thailand, Italy, Brazil, India, Spain, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Colombia, Austria, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
