Long Island is home to world-class hospitals. At the top is St. Francis in Roslyn. For the tenth consecutive year, St. Francis has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best hospitals in the nation. St. Francis was ranked among the top hospitals in the country for cardiology and heart surgery, gastroenterology and GI surgery and geriatrics. The hospital was the only one on Long Island to be ranked in three adult specialties. St. Francis was also rated number four in New York State and number five in the New York metropolitan area.
“We take great pride in receiving this nationwide recognition for the past decade. Being consistently ranked in cardiology and heart surgery as well as non-cardiac specialties is a true testament to our ongoing mission of providing the very best in patient care,” said Ruth E. Hennessey, chief administrative officer of St. Francis Hospital. “I am deeply grateful to our physicians, nurses, and staff for this outstanding achievement. It is the direct result of their dedicated teamwork and commitment to excellence in patient care.”
