Salem Hospital has been named “High Performing” in the treatment of nine specialties, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2023-2024 Best Hospitals rankings.

This is the highest award a hospital can earn in the publisher’s Common Adult Procedure and Condition Ratings. The hospital was also ranked  No. 6 overall in the Boston Metro Area and No. 8 in Massachusetts.

“To be recognized once again by U.S. News & World Report is a proud accomplishment for all of us at Salem Hospital. This achievement reflects the dedication and expertise of our outstanding physicians, nurses, and staff, who work diligently across multiple specialties to deliver high-quality, compassionate care to our patients,” said Roxanne Ruppel, president and chief operating officer, “It is an honor to care for this community and we are proud to be recognized for doing it well.”

U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 21 procedures and conditions; only 12% of evaluated hospitals earned a Best Hospitals ranking. Hospitals awarded a “Best” designation excelled at factors such as clinical outcomes, level of nursing care and patient experience.

Mass General Brigham is honored to have five hospitals nationally recognized in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals rankings. Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital once again earned spots on the Honor Roll among the top hospitals in the country. Brigham and Women’s Hospital is ranked No. 1 in the nation for obstetrics and gynecology. Three Mass General Brigham specialty hospitals – McLean Hospital, Spaulding Rehabilitation and Mass Eye and Ear – are also recognized for national excellence. McLean Hospital is ranked No. 1 in psychiatry. Spaulding Rehabilitation is No. 2 in rehabilitation. Mass Eye and Ear is ranked No. 4 in ophthalmology and No. 7 in otolaryngology (ear, nose, throat).

Earlier this year, Mass General Brigham launched For Every Patient, a systemwide unified quality strategy that seeks to achieve the best possible outcomes for every patient. For Every Patient is a multi-year, evidence-based, data driven effort that will provide high-quality care that is effective, safe, personalized, and rooted in equity at every touchpoint, for every patient.
