MSLC Receives Numerous Accolades from Healthgrades


Cornwall/Newburgh, NY – October 24, 2023 – Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall announced today that it is once again one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Critical Care, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource consumers use to find a hospital or doctor. This adds to MSLC’s previous recognition by Healthgrades last year as the #1 hospital in New York State for Critical Care.

Healthgrades’ release this morning also includes MSLC being named as a five-star recipient for treatment of Colorectal Surgeries, Diabetic Hospitalizations, Heart Failure, Respiratory Failure, Sepsis, and Stroke. This recognition reflects MSLC’s outstanding clinical performance and distinguishes it as one of the country’s leading hospitals.

“To achieve this level of clinical excellence reassures our community that we are dedicated to providing the highest quality standards and coordination of care, with the best possible patient outcomes,” said Daniel J. Maughan, MBA, FNP-C, President and CEO of MSLC. “We are so proud of our medical staff, clinical teams, and supporting departments, all of whom consistently provide extraordinary care in a safe, healing environment for our patients and their loved ones.”

Healthgrades evaluates hospitals solely on clinical outcomes: risk-adjusted mortality and complications. By focusing on what matters most, patient outcomes, the Healthgrades ratings provide critical feedback for both patients and hospitals. By offering easy access to objective performance measures, Healthgrades gives consumers the information they need to find a hospital that excels in providing the care they need. And, by shining a light on strengths and weaknesses, the Healthgrades ratings help direct hospitals to opportunities for clinical improvement. The 2024 hospital assessment evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 35 common conditions and procedures at approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide to identify the top performers.

The 2024 Healthgrades analysis revealed that the variation in performance among hospitals continues to widen, making it increasingly important to seek care at top-rated programs.

“Healthgrades congratulates Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall for being a national leader and demonstrating a deep commitment to providing high quality care to all patients,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “As health systems nationwide endeavor to elevate the quality of care, these elite facilities provide a roadmap for success.
