Rankings in the annual U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” issue are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures. Rankings are based on objective data, including quality outcomes, patient experience and likelihood of discharge to home.

“Being ranked among the very best in the country by U.S. News & World Report is a milestone for Miami Neuroscience Institute and it reflects our pursuit of excellence and innovation in the field of neuroscience,” says Dr. McDermott. “It confirms our commitment to quality of care and improving patient outcomes, and it lets the physicians in the community know that they can trust the care we can deliver to their patients.”
