NYU Langone Health was named the top hospital for quality and safety in both inpatient and outpatient care out of more than 100 academic medical centers nationwide. The recognition comes from Vizient, Inc., the largest healthcare performance improvement organization in the United States.
The New York Post reports on Vizient’s ranking of NYU Langone as No. 1 for both the Bernard A. Birnbaum, MD, Quality Leadership Award for superior performance in patient care and the Ambulatory Quality and Accountability Award for excellence in its ambulatory practice. The Quality Leadership Award rated NYU Langone based on safety, mortality, effectiveness, efficiency, patient-centeredness, and equity.
“Outstanding quality and safety standards are the hallmarks of our institution, reflecting a culture dedicated to excellence and the best outcomes for our patients no matter where in our system they receive care,” says Robert I. Grossman, MD, CEO of NYU Langone Health and dean of NYU Grossman School of Medicine.
The ambulatory award recognizes NYU Langone’s faculty group practice for excellence in access to care, quality, efficiency, continuum of care, and equity. The outpatient network is made up of more than 320 locations in the New York metropolitan area and in Florida.
“We are improving overall health by providing the best physicians and services in the communities we serve,” says Andrew W. Brotman, MD, senior vice president and vice dean for clinical affairs and strategy, chief clinical officer.
