Morristown hospital wins award

July 4, 2013 by  

NJBIZ named Morristown Medical Center, Morristown, New Jersey, its ‘Hospital of the Year’, during a ceremony that took place June 18 at the Palace at Somerset Park.

The occasion was NJBIZ’s seventh annual ‘Healthcare Heroes Award’, which is held to honor those people and institutions that have made a major positive impact on New Jersey’s healthcare system. Morristown is part of the Atlantic Health System, and won over five other institutions, including the Englewood Hospital and Medical Center and the Jersey City Medical Center.

There are 11 categories in the awards, honoring both individuals and institutions. Some of the categories are Hospital of the Year, Nurse of the Year, Corporate Achievement, and Physician of the Year. Winners were chosen by judges who comprised an independent panel.

Doctor David Shulkin, who is president of Morristown MC, said the award recognizes the center’s dedication to its patients and its desire to provide superior medical care. He added his belief that MMC is a leader in reforming healthcare, and is innovative in its approach to delivering care.

Morristown Medical Center was also named by U.S. News & World Report as being one of the country’s top 50 hospitals for heart surgery, cardiology, and gynecology. In addition, physicians ranked Morristown as the best hospital in New Jersey for three years running.

With these accolades, Morristown might consider working with brochure printers to create a mailer for area residents, listing the awards the center has won, the esteem in which it is held by physicians, and inviting prospective patients to visit and see the institution for themselves.
