White Plains Hospital Named One of the World’s Best Hospitals by Newsweek for the Third Straight Year

White Plains Hospital has been recognized as a “World’s Best Hospital” by Newsweek for the third consecutive year. Named a “3-Year Champion,” White Plains Hospital is one of just 15 hospitals in New York, and the only one in Westchester County, to be included on the prestigious list.


Newsweek teamed with market data research firm Statista to develop a rigorous methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the rankings. Four data sources were used for the evaluation, including an international online survey of more than 85,000 doctors, hospital managers, and healthcare professionals; patient experience surveys measuring patient satisfaction; hospital quality metrics on outcomes, hygiene measures, patient safety, and staffing; and patient-reported outcome measures. The World’s Best Hospitals 2024 list recognizes the best medical institutions across 30 countries, with 412 based in the United States. This year, White Plains Hospital was also recognized as a global leader in Infection Prevention & Patient Satisfaction. 


“Being named as a World’s Best Hospital for a third year in a row is an incredible honor and speaks volumes about the exceptional care we provide to our community,” said Dr. Michael Palumbo, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer at White Plains Hospital.

White Plains Hospital has been awarded numerous accolades over the past few years, including earning a prestigious five-star hospital rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) — the highest distinction offered by the federal agency ¬– for the second consecutive year last summer.
