West Orange Kessler Rehabilitation Ranked Second In Nation

July 15, 2014 at 11:17 PM

WEST ORANGE, NJ - Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation (www.kessler-rehab.com) has been ranked as one of the top two rehabilitation hospitals in the country for 2014-2015, and as the leading facility of its kind in New Jersey and the greater New York metropolitan region by U.S. News & World Report. This marks the 22nd consecutive year that Kessler has been listed among the nation’s best hospitals in this annual independent survey.

“We are honored that Kessler has again been named one of the very best rehabilitation hospitals in the country,” said President Robert Brehm.  “This is a most meaningful acknowledgement of our commitment to deliver the quality care and advanced treatment that enables individuals with stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, orthopedic conditions, amputation, cardiac events, and other injuries or illnesses to rebuild their lives. We are proud of our more than 2000 Kessler employees and the work they do each day, but prouder still of our patients whose progress is the true measure of our success.”  

Kessler has held the number two spot in the national rankings for nine of the past ten years.

According to U.S. News, the annual rankings recognize hospitals that excel in the treatment the individuals with complex medical needs. “The data tell the story – a hospital that emerged from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of,” says U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. “A Best Hospital has demonstrated its expertise in treating the most challenging patients.”

Kessler’s Chief Medical Officer Bruce M. Gans, M.D. added that, “To be ranked second among the more than 1100 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and units in the country is important recognition of Kessler’s leadership not only in patient care, but in research, education and advocacy initiatives.”

Kessler Institute has three hospital campuses in West Orange, Saddle Brook and Chester, N.J. and more than 85 outpatient Kessler Rehabilitation Centers throughout the state.

The annual U.S. News Rehabilitation Hospitals list (www.health.usnews.com/best-hospitals) is based on an independent survey of randomly-selected board-certified physicians specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation medicine who were asked to name the hospitals that provide the best care to patients with serious conditions, regardless of location or expense.

My Epic Beauty Fails

At first I wondered why I needed a lip plumper if I was already so stunning. But then I thought, “Now here is someone wearing a badge that says, ‘beauty expert,’ so ...
