Mount Nittany Health is proud to announce that for the fourth year in a row the Mount Nittany Medical Center has been named one of the World’s Best Hospitals by Newsweek. Created in 2019, the ‘World’s Best Hospitals’ series includes data on over 2,400 hospitals across 39 countries.

Mount Nittany Medical Center is one of 26 hospitals in Pennsylvania to rank in the top 400 hospitals nationwide.

“It’s an honor to once again receive the prestigious recognition as one of the World’s Best Hospitals,” said Kathleen Rhine, President and CEO, Mount Nittany Health. “I want to thank the hardworking Mount Nittany Health team, who truly go above and beyond to provide high-quality, compassionate care each and every day. The whole team should be proud that their dedication and commitment make Mount Nittany Medical Center one of the world’s best!”

According to Newsweek, “With so much at stake for individuals and institutions, reliable data is key. The Newsweek-Statista rankings provide crucial insights for patients, families and health care executives.”

Each of the ‘World’s Best Hospitals’ scores is based on an online survey of more than 85,000 medical experts and public data from post-hospitalization patient surveys on their general satisfaction. The score also considers metrics on things like hygiene and patient/doctor ratio as well as a Statista survey on whether hospitals use Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs), which are standardized questionnaires completed by patients to assess their experience and results.

Since 1902, Mount Nittany Health has grown to serve more than 400,000 members of the community, and has more than 220 providers and 30 medical specialties serving six counties.

In addition to being named a “World’s Best Hospital” by Newsweek in 2021, 2022, and 2023, and “America’s Best Maternity Hospital” in 2023, Mount Nittany Medical Center earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for quality care and patient safety and a 5-Star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
