Sinai Hospital One of the Top 50 Neurology and Neurosurgery Hospitals by U.S. News and World Report

Sinai Hospital of Baltimore has been listed as one of the top hospitals in the nation for neurology and neurosurgery, according to U.S. News & World Report?s 2008 annual hospital ranking. Sinai ranked 47th in the country, according to the report.

It is an honor that U.S. News & World Report recognizes the excellent care provided by our staff here at Sinai,? said Neil M. Meltzer, president and COO, Sinai Hospital.

The Neurology and Neurosurgery departments are part of the LifeBridge Health Brain & Spine Institute, a one-of-its-kind consortium of specialists in neurology and neurosurgery, as well as orthopedics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and several other subspecialties.

?Patients at the Brain & Spine Institute are referred to a team of world-class dedicated physicians and medical staff who develop a proper plan of treatment and/or procedures for diseases of and injuries to the brain, nervous system and spine,? Meltzer said. ?Sinai is the only community-based hospital in Maryland that is named among other prestigious medical centers around the United States in the neurology and neurosurgery category.?

U.S. News & World Report started the annual listings as a way to identify facilities with the best level of medical care in the country. To be eligible for the ranking, a hospital must first belong to the Council of Teaching Hospitals, and be affiliated with a medical school or have at least six technology services out of a defined list of 13.

Those services include cancer; digestive disorders; heart; kidney disease; neurology and neurosurgery; urology; ophthalmology; psychiatry; and rehabilitation.

Hospitals in the U.S. News and World Report listing are ranked based on several factors including reputation among specialists, mortality rates and other medical data, most of which comes from an annual survey by the American Hospital Association.

Sinai Hospital of Baltimore is part of LifeBridge Health, a regional health organization that also includes Northwest Hospital, Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital, Jewish Convalescent & Nursing Home, and related subsidiaries and affiliates.
