None of Connecticut’s hospitals earned a spot on US News Best Hospitals list this year, as in 2018 and 2011. New York had three hospitals in the top 20 Honor Roll and one Massachusetts hospital made the list. This echoes the Lown Institute’s hospital rankings this year for social responsibility.
US News ranked Yale-New Haven as the best overall hospital in Connecticut earning national ranking in nine specialties. Yale-New Haven was the only Connecticut hospital that earned any national rankings for adult care. Connecticut Children’s Medical Center ranked nationally in three specialties for pediatric care. Hartford Hospital ranked second overall in Connecticut followed by St. Francis. Yale-New Haven, Hartford, and St. Francis each earned only three out of five stars in patient experience of care.
US News also identified the best overall hospital in each region of Connecticut.
|New Haven||Yale-New Haven|
|Western CT||Bridgeport Hospital|
|Eastern CT||Lawrence and Memorial|
