Mather Hospital Ranked Among Top Hospitals in New York State and New York Metro Area by U.S. News & World Report

July 19, 2012

U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Hospitals rankings once again lists John T. Mather Memorial Hospital as among the best in New York State and the New York metro area.

The Hospital was ranked 28th out of 241 hospitals in New York State in the magazine’s first state rankings category. Mather was ranked 34th out of 184 hospitals in the New York metro area, which includes northern New Jersey and Westchester County. Mather was also recognized for three medical specialties: gastroenterology, geriatrics and orthopedics. In addition, the magazine noted that Mather Hospital “scored high in patient safety, demonstrating commitment to reducing accidents and medical mistakes.”

“The U.S. News rankings are the latest recognition of Mather Hospital’s commitment to excellent quality of care and patient safety,” said Mather Hospital President Kenneth Roberts. “I thank our staff, physicians, board and volunteers for all of their dedication and good work that led to this recognition.”

The annual U.S. News hospital rankings showcase more than 720 of the nation’s roughly 5,000 hospitals. Fewer than 150 are nationally ranked in at least one of 16 medical specialties. The rest of the recognized hospitals met a standard of performance nearly as demanding in one or more specialties.

The rankings were published by U.S. News in collaboration with RTI International, a research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. The complete rankings and methodology are available at

John T. Mather Memorial Hospital is an accredited 248-bed, non-profit community hospital dedicated to providing a wide spectrum of high quality healthcare services to Suffolk County residents, showing compassion and respect and treating each patient in the manner we would wish for our loved ones.
