The 2016-17 US News and World Report hospital rankings are in—and the endocrinology and diabetes program at New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley-Komansky Children’s Hospital has been recognized as the 9th highest ranked in this category nationally and the top ranked specialty service at Morgan Stanley-Komansky. The program is led by Berrie Center pediatric endocrinologist, Natasha Leibel, MD. The adult endocrinology and diabetes service at The New York-Presbyterian University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell ranked 5th nationally, and the hospital itself is the 6th highest ranked in the country.
“We are thrilled that the excellent work of our diabetes and endocrinology clinicians, is recognized nationally,” said Robin Goland, MD, Co-Director of the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center and the J. Merrill Eastman Professor of Clinical Diabetes at Columbia. “Our in-patient and out-patient services very much work in tandem. Congratulations to everyone involved who has had a hand in caring for our patients in the hospital.”
The US News analysis of hospitals includes data from nearly 5000 centers and survey responses from 30,000 physicians across the nation across multiple clinical specialties and conditions. Only 153 hospitals were ranked in a specialty. A hospital’s overall specialty score is based on numerous data categories including patient safety and hospital reputation.
Added Dr. Goland, “The Berrie Center's teamwork approach to patient care is a model for hospitals everywhere. We are very proud of what we do.”
