Monmouth Medical Center Honored as a Top Infection Prevention Hospital by Newsweek

In the world of healthcare, it is a momentous achievement to be recognized on Newsweek’s ‘World’s Best Hospitals’ list. Achieving this honor for the third consecutive year is Monmouth Medical Center (MMC), a respected hospital based in Long Branch, NJ. This year, out of 2,400 globally recognized hospitals across 30 countries, MMC stood out as one of the 414 U.S. hospitals to make the list. Furthermore, it ranks among just six hospitals in New Jersey to receive this prestigious acknowledgement. The award is jointly presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., a leading global statistical portal and industry ranking provider.

In addition to this recognition, MMC received an even more specialized distinction this year – it was noted as one of the ‘World’s Best Infection Prevention Hospitals.’ This accolade is conferred on U.S. hospitals that exceed national averages across six reported measurement areas. These measures reflect the quality of care provided and guide patients and their families in making informed healthcare decisions.

Determining the hospitals worthy of this recognition involves a comprehensive and elaborate methodology; ensuring reliability, validity, and accuracy. This process incorporates three main data sources: an international survey distributed to over 80,000 doctors, hospital managers, and healthcare professionals; customer satisfaction data; and key performance indicators, inclusive of patient safety, hygiene protocols, and treatment quality.

The 2024 list also incorporated a new category that evaluated Patient-Reported Outcome Measures. These are determined using standard and validated questionnaires that allow patients to share their perceptions of their health. Significantly, emphasis on hospital quality metrics was increased in this year’s methodology, representing the growing importance of medical key performance indicators.

MMC’s President and CEO, Eric Carney expressed his pride in this achievement, seeing it as a testament to the relentless efforts and dedication of the entire team at MMC. This recognition places MMC amongst an elite group of global healthcare institutions that consistently attract top professionals, deliver superior patient outcomes, and implement crucial research and therapies.
