The academic health system's top executive praised the organization's teams for continuing to earn recognition for high-quality care.
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital slipped two spots in the latest U.S. News & World Report's annual hospital rankings announced Tuesday. But the New York City–based academic health system held on to its coveted status as a Top 10 hospital.
Surpassed by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and falling behind ninth-place Stanford Hospital, NewYork-Presbyterian fell to 10th this year after ranking eighth in each of the past two years.
