BIRMINGHAM, ALA. – July 30, 2019 – Princeton Baptist Medical Center has been recognized as a Best Hospital for 2019-20 by U.S. News & World Report.

Princeton Baptist Medical CenterThe annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, now in their 30th year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or for common elective procedures.

Among the Best Hospitals ranking, Princeton Baptist Medical Center was ranked as number two in the Birmingham Metro and number three across the State of Alabama. In addition, Princeton was rated as high performing in the areas of heart failure, colon cancer surgery and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

“With our commitment to high-quality care, our dedicated staff and our talented physicians, we are very proud to achieve this distinguished ranking,” said Princeton Baptist Medical Center Chief Executive Officer, Mike Neuendorf. “This ranking is a testament to our patients that we are providing them with the highest level of care every day when they come into our hospital.”

In the 16 specialty areas, 165 hospitals were ranked in at least one specialty. In rankings by state and metro area, U.S. News recognized hospitals as high performing across multiple areas of care.

“For 30 years, U.S. News has strived to make hospital quality more transparent to healthcare consumers nationwide,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “By providing the most comprehensive data available on nearly every hospital across the United States, we give patients, families and physicians information to support their search for the best care across a range of procedures, conditions and specialties.”
