Maimonides’ 2024 Healthgrades Distinctions

In new research released by Healthgrades, Maimonides Medical Center received numerous accolades, reflecting the hospital’s mission of high-quality care and commitment to its patients, and distinguishes it as one of the country’s leading hospitals. Healthgrades’ awards this year recognized hospitals nationwide for excellence in 16 key specialties across a mix of chronic, urgent, and surgical specialty areas at approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide to identify the top performers.

Maimonides Medical Center was named one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Orthopedic Surgery. It is the only hospital in New York City to receive the America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Orthopedic Surgery Award™ for 3 years in a row (2022-2024). Maimonides received an Orthopedic Surgery Excellence Award™, indicating that it is among the top 5% or 10% of hospitals for orthopedic surgery specialty care, for the third year in a row.

Maimonides was also named one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Prostate Surgeries.

Five-Star Distinctions awarded to Maimonides in this most recent Healthgrades research include:


Healthgrades evaluates hospitals solely on clinical outcomes, including risk-adjusted mortality and complications, to give consumers information to assist in finding a hospital that excels in providing the care they need. From 2020-2022, for example, Healthgrades found that patients treated at hospitals among America’s 100 Best for Orthopedic Surgery have, on average, a 45.2% lower risk of experiencing a complication than if treated in hospitals that did not receive the award. 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 Maimonides Medical Center 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. We commend Maimonides Medical Center for their dedication to excellence in patient care.”
