To compile the annual list, U.S. News & World Report evaluates multiple data categories including patient outcomes, patient volume, and more. Over 6,000 hospitals were evaluated for this prestigious award. Alice Peck Day Hospital, in partnership with UVNN, earned the high performance rating and ranked significantly better than the national average. In addition, we received excellent scores in how often patients are discharged directly to home post surgery. UVNN received excellent scores in patient experience  as a result of an inpatient survey where patients were asked to rate the overall quality of their stay, with more nursing care per patient associated with better outcomes and better patient experience.

When patient’s consider their options for care, rankings such as this are crucial in their decision-making process. We’re proud of the level of service, knowledge and experience our neurosurgeons deliver to the New Hampshire community and credit their hard work and commitment, which allows us to receive such an honor.

UVNN patients can assured knowing our team of doctors rank best-in-class in the non-invasive treatment of brain and nervous system conditions. Our neurosurgeons consult with patients and talk with them about their medical history and symptoms. Patients receive a physical exam with special attention given to their mental status, speech, vision, strength, coordination, reflexes, and bodily sensations. It is our goal to provide every patient with compassionate, high quality, and personalized care in a private practice setting.
