Moss Rehab Again Named Among "America's Best Hospitals"
Elkins Park, PA, July 7, 2006- Once again, MossRehab, a member of the Albert Einstein Healthcare Network, has been recognized as one of the nation’s leading rehabilitation facilities in the annual US News & World Report survey of “America’s Best Hospitals.”
“We are honored that MossRehab is consistently recognized as one of the leading rehabilitation facilities in the country,” said Ruth Lefton, Chief Operating Officer, MossRehab. “This recognition clearly reflects the ongoing commitment of our entire staff to providing the highest level of quality patient care and services.”
MossRehab offers a wide range of specialized services, including comprehensive programs for brain and spinal cord injury, stroke, amputation and orthopaedic conditions. In addition, MossRehab is one of only a few rehabilitation hospitals in the nation to be designated by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research as a Model System of Care for traumatic brain injury.
Rehabilitation medicine was one of five out of the 16 medical specialties ranked whose outcome was based solely on reputation. The survey, conducted over a three-year period by RTI International in Triangle Park, N.C., involved a sampling of board-certified physicians randomly selected from the American Medical Association’s database. The physicians were asked to list up to five hospitals they believe to be top in this specialty, without considering cost or location. The reputational score, which corresponds to the hospital’s overall USNews ranking, represents the percentages of responding doctors who named that hospital.
Complete survey information will be published in the July 17, 2006 edition of US News & World Report, which hits newsstands on July 10, or visit www.usnews.com.
