Feb 29, 2024 Monmouth Medical Center Named to Newsweek World’s Best Hospitals’ List For Third Consecutive Year

Eric Carney Long Branch, NJ, February 29, 2024 – Monmouth Medical Center (MMC) has been named to the 2024 Newsweek list of World’s Best Hospitals, marking the third consecutive year the hospital has been on this listing, which recognized the best medical institutions among 2,400 across 30 countries.

MMC is one of 414 U.S. hospitals – and among just six New Jersey hospitals named. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. This year MMC was recognized for an additional award, World’s Best Infection Prevention Hospitals, identifying which of the US hospitals featured in the national ranking were performing “above national average” based on six reported measures.

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.

Additionally, the 2024 list was once again scored using a category regarding the implementation status of Patient-Reported Outcome Measures that are compiled using standardized and validated questionnaires that evaluate how patients feel about their health. New this year, the weighting of the hospital quality metrics pillar was increased within the scoring model to reflect the emphasis on the medical key performance indicators.

“Recognition such as this, and our standing as the hospital with by far the most Leapfrog A’s for patient safety in the region, truly reflect the hard work and unwavering commitment of the entire Monmouth Medical Center team,” said MMC and Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus President and CEO Eric Carney. “We are so proud to be listed among the world’s best hospitals for a third consecutive year based on excellence in both patient experience and quality metrics, and hope this designation is helpful to patients and families seeking the best care for themselves and loved ones.”

Newsweek said that institutions on their list all share the quality of consistency – consistently attracting the best people, providing the best patient outcomes and implementing the most important new therapies and research. Newsweek notes that of all the hospitals in the world, relatively few can do all of these things year in and year out.

"Leading healthcare institutions are at the forefront of medical innovation worldwide. Newsweek and Statista are proud to announce, 'The World's Best Hospitals 2024,' spotlighting hospitals that are dedicated to excellence in medical science and compassionate patient care," said – Newsweek Global Editor in Chief Nancy Cooper.
