U.S. News & World Report Names Virtua Voorhees Hospital Among Top 10 in New Jersey

Voorhees Ties for Sixth Place in Annual Rankings 

July 26, 2022 - U.S. News & World Report has named Virtua Voorhees Hospital and Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital to its 2022-23 rankings of the best performing hospitals in New Jersey and the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area. 

Virtua Voorhees is tied for 6th best in New Jersey and tied for 12th best in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area. (Data from nearby Virtua Marlton Hospital contributes to this ranking.) This is one of several recent honors for the Voorhees hospital.

“I am incredibly proud to be part of a team of health care professionals united in vision and values,” said Paul Minnick, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, FACHE, president of Virtua Voorhees and Virtua Marlton hospitals, and a senior vice president for Virtua Health. “Recognition like this reflects that we are dedicated to putting the patient first in each and every encounter. It also underscores that health care, at its best, is not transactional; rather, it is a relationship built on trust.”

U.S. News & World Report ranked Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Camden as the 15th best in New Jersey and 16th best in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area.

All Virtua hospitals received distinction as high performing for select services. 

“We are very proud of Virtua Health’s consistent rankings by U.S. News & World Report and other third-party groups that measure quality, safety, and experience,” said Reginald “Reg” Blaber, MD, MBA, FACC, Virtua executive vice president and chief clinical officer. “We are on a continuous high-reliability journey, and we are tireless in our pursuit of providing the best possible care and outcomes for our patients. It is our duty to our community.” 

The annual U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” analysis evaluates data from nearly 5,000 hospitals and more than 30,000 physician survey responses to determine each hospital’s performance in adult and pediatric clinical specialties, procedures, and conditions. Scores are based on several factors, including survival rates, patient safety, specialized staffing, and more. The purpose of the rankings is to help patients and their doctors make informed decisions about where to seek care.
