Overlook Hospital Ranked #1 for Neurologic​al Disorders

Overlook Hospital was voted the No.1 hospital in N.J. for the treatment of neurological disorders by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., one of the nation’s most respected health care research and information companies. The hospital also received recognition as a top 10 hospital across several categories, including overall quality, stroke care, hip and knee repair, and cancer treatment. These rankings were published in Inside Jersey magazine.

With the largest team of neurologists, neurosurgeons and neuroscience nursing staff in the state, Overlook Hospital has steadily increased its reputation as the premier center for neuroscience and stroke care in New Jersey. In the past two years, 54 hospitals have transferred their most critical stroke patients to Overlook Hospital for more advanced stroke intervention.  The Atlantic Neuroscience Institute at Overlook Hospital serves as the hub for the NJ Stroke Network – the largest group of its kind in the state comprised of New Jersey’s Primary Stroke Center hospitals – and serves approximately 40 percent of the state’s stroke patients. Through the Network, Primary Stroke Centers have safely transferred their stroke patients to Overlook Hospital’s Comprehensive Stroke Center, where patients can benefit from the most advanced, life saving diagnostics and stroke treatments available.

“The Castle Connolly survey findings confirm what our patients and staff already know – Overlook is the best hospital in the region when it comes to neuroscience and stroke care,” said Alan Lieber, president of Overlook Hospital. “Our team of top-rated physicians, nurses and staff at Overlook’s Atlantic Neuroscience Institute and throughout the hospital reinforce our commitment to excellence each day through providing world class patient care to our community.”

Nearly 1,000 licensed physicians in New Jersey participated in the online survey by Castle Connolly, which was distributed in fall 2010. Physicians cast a total of nearly 19,000 votes on the treatment of specific medical conditions and top overall hospitals in the state. The results were divided into two categories: hospitals with more than 350 beds and those with less than 350 beds.

A Royal Pain

I went to a big wedding over the weekend.  It was in England.
