Stony Brook University Hospital is officially ranked as one of the best hospitals in the U.S.
Earlier this year, a healthcare information service called Healthgrades released its annual “Healthgrades America’s Best Hospitals,” which names the top 100 hospitals throughout the country.
Stony Brook University Hospital was the only hospital from Long Island to make that list.
According to Healthgrades, the top 2 percent of hospitals in the nation “exhibiting clinical excellence year over year” earn the designation. To earn the award, hospitals must display quality outcomes for 32 conditions and procedures.
On Wednesday, the hospital celebrated the honor.
“It is an incredible testament to the people to Stony Brook University Hospital, and all the work they do every day,” Stony Brook University Hospitals president, Samuel Stanley, told News 12 during the celebration, “But it is also wonderful news for the people of Long Island to have access to one of the best hospitals in the world makes a huge difference in their health.”
